    nickel plated P226

    I picked this up a while ago and it is in fantastic shape. It was made in 1998. I believe she came from the factory just as you see her.

    ALL of the controls on the other side are nickel as well.

    Any thoughts?

    I had a .40 that looked just like that a few years back. Nice gun! I currently own a W. German made 226 made in 1987. Just got it back from Sig for the fulls service package. Very nice!

    I did call Sig Sauer for any information and they told me since it was made before 2006, it was made in Germany and they don't have any information about it.

    I would assume at this point that the guns were made in Germany and exported to Sigarms Exeter, NH. until 2006?

    Yes, in 2006 some guns were made here in the USA. Several German manufacturers started doing that in order to get a leg up on being able to postition themselves for bigger and more contracts.
