SIG P 210-1 army

Bought this SIG P 220-1 army yesterday. Itís the 1811th made for the Swiss army contract in 1949, so a first year delivery model, a true P49 pistol. 3200 were made and delivered that year.

Classics, thanks for sharing! I would love to be able to own/shoot one of these. I have a us made 210 target that elicits all kinds of opinions on which model is better, quite frankly I donít care I think Sig has done a great job on this model and I believe the accuracy of all the p210ís is probably better than 99% of the shooters.

So let me ask you if you know, is the older model you have like the US target in its tight fitting smooth as glass action. Just curious, again thanks for sharing.

Sweet! Though I prefer the black checkered plastic service stock myself.

Probably 30-35 years ago , I had a gray-market 'short-rail' CZ-75 , and someone wanted to trade me a 210 even up for it.

I didn't.

Well Iíve never handled the newer US 210. But the old Neuhausen produced guns have a reputation for amazing fitting, precision and tightness. The trigger is also outstanding.

Here are two targets, both shot at 50 meters from a rest

The first one is self explanatory



The second one is from my LNIB 210-6, I measured the six shot group at abt 2 inches

Well those wood grips are original to the gun, so they are also service stocks. It is only from the 4th delivery batch in 1952 that plastic grips were installed. I have a 1956 (2nd on top).



I donít know if you tried both, but the older wooden ones are more confortable, the plastic ones have a very aggressive checkering which can become unpleasant (but surely better for a military application).

The CZ 75 short rail is a nice gun too, with a very pretty polished blue.

I’m jealous.

I need to find me a 210-1 or a P49.
