Frankly West Germany was a better country, less problems then modern Germany but I am sure a new sig won't let you down.
Even with the rail issue aside, they don't have the same look as the old ones, but they seem to shoot as well.
My latest one is a P239 9mm (made in USA). Nice little pistol. No complaints, other than the plastic guide rod.
My other is a P226R Navy with a German frame. Incredible shooter. Fantastic accuracy, better than my first W. German P226.
My next is going to be a P220. I was considering searching for a W. German model, but decided to go new American instead.
We were somewhat aghast to find sharp rolled over milling burs on the slide rails, forward of the frame.
Just a few full slide cycles broke them off, or wore the finish off the remaining ones so they were showing bare metal.
And don't even dare run your finger over them, because you are gonna bleed if you do!
Also bare metal showing on the rear sight, apparently from when it was pressed into the dovetail.
I have never seen anything like that on a new German SIG!
