Yeah, I got bored and decided to find out any info on the Interarms series of Sig Sauer pistols.

I have a P226 that was imported by them. Seems like they were imported from 1982 to 1986 (?) in limited quantities.

Best I can tell is that they were made as a special production run by Sig. The roll marks are different on the slide, barrel, etc...

Seen a few in 45 Auto, 38 Super Auto, as well as in 9mm Luger (that and their name is in all caps).

Didn't know if there were any production numbers as compared to the Browning BDA.

Any info on the BDAs, Hawes pistols, Interarms variants would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

They were just regular P226s made in W. Germany and imported by Interarms, since SIG didn't have their US base at the time. But, you already knew that. So, I'm not sure why you think they were special production run? Because of the different roll marks? Tysons Corner imported P226s came with different roll marks, too.

Yeah, that's about it.

The roll mark locations are different than the other pistols of the same timeframe as opposed to being importer engraved post production.

Also they are stamped as '9mm Luger' (as opposed to 9mm Para) for the barrels of Interarms, but the 9mm Luger magazines are a lot more common. Different lawyers? Idunno.

(It has been a slow afternoon.)

I have been casually working on the same area and progress is very slow. I will try to dig up what little I have so far tomorrow.

I have owned 2 Interarms imported SIG Sauers and they were both P225s.

My current, early Interarms P225 differs from later production in that it has plain black sights, no white dots. I believe the plain black sights were a specification for the German Police P6. Also, the proof mark on the frame is on the right side, just in front of the grip rather than by the serial number.

Both came in the typical green P225 cardboard box with an Interarms sticker applied to the top of the box.

The older 226s were mud rail guns and were subject to frame failure.

Interarms was SIG-Sauer's importer from 1982 until the end of 1984.

The Interarms guns were pre-'mud rails'. The generally accepted SN Range for 'Mud Rails' begins in the U135XXX/'JG' Proof Code (1986) time frame, which was during the Tysons Corner era.

Amazingly a 1983 Interarms price list shows P220 magazines for $38•••per DOZEN!
The entire P–series including the P226 were still in the 1985 catalog, but I suspect Para‘s date is more accurate.

You may be looking at the same list I've pulled up.

How many lanyard loops would I want at $1.25 each? Seems like the first thing to go missing.

They also were able to import a few P230s.
