Two sequential numbered P228s born days apart and in completely different configurations Login/Join

I was just passing through the Classifieds the other day and saw a 1997 P228 that Jeff Yarchin sold. Although most of my P228s are gone, I'm still interested in trivial P228 factoids, so I asked him permission to save his pics. Little did I realize I stumbled on some new factoid. Fascinating, Captain. Big Grin

Jeff's P228: Serial # B336288; Part Number: E28-9-BSS - Typical regular folded carbon steel slide gun with SIGLITE, with a BD of Sept 17, 2007.

Mine: Serial # B336287; Part Number: E28-9-SP - This is the stainless slide NJSP gun that SIG only made 2 samples of in Sept 21, 2007. I discussed it in details in this thread. The whereabouts of the other NJSP gun is unknown. If I had to guess, its serial # would be B336286.

It's funny that 288 (9/17) is dated before the 287 (9/21). You would think it would be the other way around.

I guess the Special one needed more fondling before they gave birth. Big Grin

Silly question, but is that a P229 slide or a P228 slide with half serrations?

Distinction without a difference?

Disregard, read your original linked thread.

Not silly. It is the P229 Legacy slide. But, if you read the other thread, you'll realize why they did what they did.

Love these bits of SIG history, both this thread and the earlier NJSP “228” one.

Very cool history!

Who'd of thunk that these pistols, even in their differing configurations, would be owned by prominent members of the forum? Pretty awesome, IMO.

Thanks for the research, and sharing it Q.

Say what? I remember a picture of a pinwheel of P228's. It's been a while since I've seen your pics of your P228's, but I seem to remember 35+ P228s in your collection.

That line caught me off guard as well.
I recall the pinwheel & the P228 spelled out in P228s.
But, he does have a habit of gifting them away, to the benefit of many members here.

Indeed, I was stunned by that bit of text as well. When did this happen, and what brought this on?

Collection goal pretty much achieved. What was I going to do with a ton of P228s? Sold many. Karma'ed many. Still have the most valuable ones at the moment, though. Cool
