    I have been keeping watch for one of these to turn up and recently saw this one on GB. It appears to be in good shape given its age. The rails are surprisingly good. Best I can tell it's a 1977 model or there abouts. I love the look of the slide and the single stack 9mm grip feels perfect for my hand. Reminds me of the P225 grip dimensions, one of my all time favorite Sigs. The bonus with this one was (5) 9mm heel release magazines. I can't wait to see how it shoots, unfortunately we are under winter storm warnings for this weekend, so I'll just look at it for another week. Enjoy the photos fellows

    Looks great only thing is, I do not like the heel Mag. release. However I could make do with it if one came my way. Let us know how it shoots.

    Wow, I've never seen one of these in person but I have always wanted to. I always wished there had been one with an American mag release, pre-rail generation.

    I just recently got back into sigs pretty heavy and this was unneeded encouragement to buy more... the classic sigs look the best!

    There are some P220 9mm with no rail and traditional mag release. They turn up on the auction site occasionally. The heel release models were the first P220s made and they were 9mm service weapons. The US market took off with the P220 .45 cals.

    The single stack 9mm grip, with the P220 make a great combination.

    Browning had a version -- the original BDA -- made by SIG but carrying the Browning rollmark. It was was available in 9mm, .38 super, or .45 ACP.
