Hello,

I would like to buy a Sig P220 in a very specific style:

1. Standard length barrel
2. No rail
3. Stainless slide
4. Black frame
5. Nickel or stainless controls
6. Tritium sights
7. DA/SA

What would be the most affordable way to get all these things in one package? I am guessing ordering all these things brand new at the gunshop counter would be the most expensive way to do it.

Thanks

You'll have to look for the older two tone stamped slide German SIGs to find it. They came out with that exact model.

What if I bought an older two-tone SIG and had it sent out for custom work on the nickel controls and tritium sights? Can you (or anyone else) recommend a good smith doing this kind of work?

The reason I ask is I have not been able to find this exact combination of features on any gun sale site.

Thanks

It's a discontinued model since these are older German made SIGs, you won't be able to find it through SIG Sauer USA's site or any of the current internet retail sites.

Only real way is to find one used, best to post a WTB ad on SIGForum.

Buying a regular P220 and having it sent out for the nickel slide and control always works. You can send it to Robar to have them put NP3 on the slide and controls or any of the other reputable refinishing companies.

Brad at CCR (Cumming Custom Refinishing) can always get you what you want. He's pretty much the "go-to" guy for the people on SIGForum.

Keep your eye on the sig forum classifieds.
