Swiss range day

I shot 3 SIGs P210 yesterday, the quintessential Swiss pistol. 25 meters standing.

My 1954 210-2 milsurp





A 210-1 from 1978 in .30 Luger



And a LNIB 210-6 from 1985 I just bought yesterday. It fired more rounds in that session than in the 35 years prior.





Maybe it was unhappy about this treatment, as it bit me



I also unleashed 20 rounds rapid fire with a new to me Beretta 92 combat. This pistol is also a real joy, very good trigger, really stable with very little lift between shots.

I love your collection of guns, very classy and diverse. Very nice 210s and great shooting! I someday would really like to own a real 210 since I don't feel the modern SIG version does it justice

I would love to see a Swiss p210 vs German p210 vs a US made 210 ransom rest tested, per the Sig Pro Shop people they used the Swiss & German 210’s as the benchmarks when they built the US models and they claim the US model exceeded its predecessors.

I would love to see a real (ransom rested) comparison where personal opinions are left out, just because it’s old doesn’t make it better. While I respect the opinions/inputs of people like Stryker it still is just his opinion based on his needs/wants/experience.

I have learned how to shoot my American p210 and am much improved with it but really I can’t do it justice and can see why some of Stryker’s negatives were leveled against it in his review but don’t agree with all, really though I would like to personally compare the Swiss & German models against my American version so just pm me so I can give you my personal contact info on where to mail me your German/Swiss p210’s for my comparison testing, I’ll be waiting with itchy trigger finger ����

Classic, thanks for sharing your range review, good shooting !

Swiss range day

You’re welcome and thanks for the compliment.

Well Sig tested my 210-6 at the factory on 19th August 1985, six shots from a machine rest at 50 meters (55 yards).

I measured it for you







It looks like 2 1/8 inches. Not sure if that can be improved a lot upon.

My P210-6 also wants its pound of flesh too.

The target that came with my German P210 Legend (standard model). It's a 25-m target instead of 50-m target. One flyer but otherwise pretty respectable.

Alas my P210-6 did not come with a target.

Sig advertises I believe 2” at 25yds on the current p210, not sure if that’s true or not as my US p210 also did not come with a target although they offered to test it early on when I was having trouble shooting it accurately (shooter) if I paid for it all if it was within spec and as I said above it’d be interesting to see the results of one machine rested, I’d bet it’d perform as well although looking at the above test targets they’re pretty impressive.

The 2” garantee is meant to cover every gun produced and all variances, that said I’d be willing to bet that 1” or better at 25yds is a realistic goal strictly based on statistics that they all need to meet.

Thanks for sharing guy’s!
