    I had one of these many years ago and sold it to buy something "new", it shot like a rifle, very accurate (I never should have sold it). I have been looking for one to replace it lately and found that they are rare and expensive. So, I am at a gun show a few weekends and what do I find, a like new 220 in 38 super in the original box with SIG wood grips and reasonably priced too. Stay tuned for the range report.

    That just might be my old Sig.
    Looks about the same and Kentucky is a hiccup away.
    Fair warning.
    I sold my gun because the slide stop wouldn't reliably lock the slide back on an empty magazine.
    On the plus side, the gun was by far the most accurate .38 Super caliber pistol I have ever owned and fired.

    Congrats on a terrific find. I remember when Browning brought out their BDA line of pistols which were rebadged P220s. Of the three, the .45ACP versions were the strong sellers while the 9mm. and .38 Super models sat around on dealers shelves gathering dust. I should have bought up every one of them that I found.

    That's sweet.

    Let's see that range report sooner than later.
