Congrats on your "new" SIG. I have a 1987 vintage west german SIG P220 (as well as a P226 and P6). My P220 shots like having a .45 cal laser in my hand:) IMOO it is the perfect DA .45.

I'm not sure what year it is. I was thinking of calling SIG to see if they could check the serial number and tell me

It has full length slide rails, and I don't think the newer ones do. Could be wrong though

Look under the front of the slide. See the german proof marks? There is a 2 year date code.

Says KF...so I guess it was made in 1995?

According to the SIG forum P220 date sticky that's correct.
Year of manufacture was 1995.
