Need advice ASAP/Told is New 226, but???
This is my first post here and I hope I don't sound like an idiot. Anyway, I have been looking to buy a Sig and today went to a gunshow nearby and purchased a P226. Here's the story I hope someone will be able to tell me something quickly before they close up tomorrow the 25th.
Too make a long story short. I see a 226 with price tag on it of $680, looks good, looks new, and ask guy if this is a new pistol and he says yes. I ask if that is the best price, he tells me he will take 630, comes with box papers, 2 15rd mags. I ask again if it is new, says yes. I come back later and decide to buy it. I ask yet again if this is new, I notice the box is not hard plastic, but regular old Sig box, kind of beat up, but I figure it got that way taking it from show to show. As he is filling out papers and talking about price I say "new in box" and he repeats NIB. I get home and do some checking and notice mark is KC, which, if I am correct means manufactured in 1992. In looking at manual I see where warranty card, I suppose, has been removed. So what is the deal? It looks new, but 15 years old certainly is not new to me. Would someone please give me some advice? Thanks
