    Here's a question for all the Sig experts (forgive me for not pouring through all 29 pages of the Sig Club)...

    I recently purchased a CPO P229 in .40, and was wondering how I might be able to get more information on it (i.e. year it was made, rolled/stamped slide, any indications of what's been replaced/serviced, etc).

    Any recommendations? I'm assuming calling Sig customer service is one option.


    Aw, crap, just realized I might have to change my user handle. :banghead: Oh, well, you can never forget your first...

    Yes, you can call customer service if the following doesn't help.
    In some cases there's a stamp on the right side of the gun next to the armory stamps that has two letters, sometimes it's under the barrel on the dust cover.
    Here's the date codes:
    A = 0
    B = 1
    C = 2
    D = 3
    E = 4
    F = 5
    G = 6
    H = 7
    J = 8
    K = 9

    Congrats on your new purchase! I just did a little project for my 229, which was putting together four 17 round Mec-Gar mags with X-Grip adapters for it. Easy way to get hi-cap mags for the 229. It does require a little grinding of the base plates, but the adapters cover that.
    Here's a poor pic:

    Thanks, Ted! I'll have to check it out when I get home. Did you make the hi-caps mags for a .40 or 9mm?
