I was wondering if when you restored this pistol if the frame was done original? The one I have is almost eight years old but still looks brand new. Found it at a local guns store Jan. 14. I was told that the frame was a factory finish, but I'm not sure.
Build date was june 6 2005. I called sig and even with the serial number they said they could not give me any info because the build date was just before they started building in their US factory so they had no records. All I wanted from Sig was info on the finish but the rep didn't know anything about the older guns. It is a German gun,or at least that's what is stamped on the frame. It's a P229 .40 S&W. The spare mag still had factory grease on it and the used mag had only very minor wear, you actually have to look for the lines on the mag to see the wear marks. The barrel had less wear than my Sig Pro that has only had about 150 rounds shot through it. I would love to get some info on this gun as to what Sig called this frame color, how many were made, etc.
