With case, tools, manual, 4 mags, military grips and fixed sights all in excellent conditon.

I've already had the chance to range test it over the weekend and it was a great shooter, a keeper for sure :)

Gorgeous gun, I'm incredibly jealous!

Love those wood grips!

I was planning on changing it back to the military setup, plastic grips/fixed sites which I have with it, but I think I prefer it this way now :)

Congratulations. Beautiful. If not for carrying or historic reasons, keep it as it is.
I have the same set of sights on my later heavy-frame target.
I am sure you will be happy with it.

I believe that is an original P210, and not one of the new productions? Very nice pistol!


If I ever decide I need one more to my stable, I think I will save up for one of these ("Go big or go home," no? ;) ).

Oh man, this is the second time I'm seeing this gun and the jealousy hasn't faded yet!

Seriously nice gun there!

Beautiful pistol, and with adjustable rear sights. Hang onto it.

When I saw your post, I thought the p210 legend had started shipping. I have had one on order since the first of the year, with no delivery in sight.

Enjoy it.

Nice pictures and thanks for the post. I never tire of seeing these pistols. I thought about buying some wood stocks for mine but the black plastic has grown on me.

You will like your new pistol.
The only real complaint anybody ever voices about these guns concerns hammer bite and that can be corrected.
Biggest regret I have with firearms is selling the two P210 pistols I owned.

I bought one used several years ago, but unfortunately mine has the fixed sights, and I've gotten bitten by the hammer several time.

Since I'm not such a great shot, I don't really find any difference in accuracy than I do with some of my other higher end pistols (non-1911). For example: EAA Witness Elite Limited, S&W 952, Pardini GT-9, P226 X5 etc.

Looking at the distributor's prices, the P210 Legend is less expensive than the X5. I'd like to see an older version, that hadn't had the barrel shot out, compared to the Legend from a Ransom Rest.

Its an original :) I thought about getting a Legend but don't really like that they changed the mag release, so I went original P210.

"Go big or go home," no? - Definately :)

I had the chance to shoot it over the weekend, its the first pistol that I've ever been bit by. I actually didn't click what it was at first and though I just cut my self :)

A set of shooting gloves may be in my future :)

Caliber is 9mm? That thing can bite me anyday. Or like Bill Cosby said, "If I'm going to be (p&ssy) whipped, I want my wife to be the one doing it."

The first thought I had when the dealer pulled it out was how nice the case is :)

Brother has the 220 Sport which is a fantastic firearm. I keep molesting every time he has it at the range when we go. Keeps telling me to find my own, but alas, I'm of the mind that the 210 is they one and only true way for me. I'll keep saving and he will just have to wipe my dirty hand prints off his for the time being...

Nice Pistol btw and I knowyou will have hours of joy shooting every round through the same hole...

Try http://www.rocosystem.com/SIGP210Beavertailscrewon/ as a cure for hammer bite. It's a screw-on extended beavertail for the P210.

Thanx, I've seen the glue on version as well. I'll probably just use a glove as I don't want to modify the pistol too much.

I was northwest of adelaide a couple of years ago helping a fellow out with his pig and roo problems. I sure could have used that sig you have. We were bouncing around a lot in his old truck and the 243 rifle he provided was not easy to get on target. I love your country and would come over a lot if I did not mind the long ride so much. BTW I just received my first sig yesterday. It is a p226 in 40sw with nite sights. Only 40 rounds so far but I can tell it is a keeper.

You are truly a wicked man to post such provocative pics. I had never really seriously considered a 210........until now. Wow, what an absolutely beautiful piece of art, I wanna one. This is gonna cost me, I can feel it. And those wooden grips look fantastic,

Oh, and the 9mm will shoot, I'm running 3.2 grains of Hodgdon Titegroup behind a 125 grain cast round nose. My Hi-Power will shoot 1" groups at 25 yards with this load, and the load also shoots well out of several other of my 9mm's. I had always heard that the 9mm wasn't an accurate round, not so.

Thanks for the pics, now I know what I want for Christmas.

A post with 210's and 229 Sports.

Great choices folks, let me add to the pictures. I love my 229 and my 210's.

.243, probably the most popular rifle cal here :) Was he's truck an old Toyota by any chance?
I'd be loving it here alot more today if the rain would let up, its been not stop the last 24 hours and I REALLY want to get out to the range or whats left of it, probably under a foot of water by now.

Congrats on your new P226 :)

That is beautiful. It reminds me of my French S.A.C.M. 1935A on which it was somewhat based.

I've been wanting to try out some other loads of late I might have to give titegroup ago since it dosent seem to have an ADI equivalent that I can see. Any idea what power factor the 3.2 load is running?

Might have to see how well it works in my BHP's as well.

Very nice Peter! I'd love to have a P210-5.

Now I see where all the spare P210 mags have gone as well :)

I never knew any P229 Sports were made in the US, I had thought they were all German made. Then again that explains the slight difference with the P229 Sports for sale in the US compared to else where. Learn something new everyday I guess :)
