Swiss made SIG P210-1, manufactured and issued to Zurich Canton police in 1964, in excellent condition with 97% original finish. 5/5 Bore. Frame, slide, and barrel matching serial numbers. Very deep blue with polished finish. Frame has very light edge wear on the trigger guard and light edge wear on the left and right sides at the forward edge. Small marks on the bottom corners of the front strap. Slide has light edge wear on the upper edge on both sides, which continues toward the rear. Light holster wear on the front and rear sights. Wood grips have very sharp serrations, a likely indication that this P210-1 was not handled very often. The right side grip has a dent on the right side, which was probably caused by a rivet in the holster, and a light pressure mark at the top of the serrations. The left side grip has a round wear mark at the top of the grip, again likely due to a rivet or button in the holster. Left side grip does have a small crack at the backstrap below the beavertail. Grip screw has bluing wear along the edges of the slot.
Includes leather holster with shoulder sling, in beautiful condition despite dated 1951.
C&R eligible; discreet import engraving.
Originally manufactured in 1947 by SIG in Neuhausen, Switzerland, this pistol was first designated as the SP 47/8 and became the standard military pistol of the Swiss Army in 1949 under the designation Pistole 49 (P49). Later designated as the P210, this handgun is constructed of steel and is chambered in either 9x19mm or 7.65x21mm Parabellum. The SIG P210 has been manufactured continuously for over 55 years with numerous variations, all of which are highly valued for their historical significance and reputation for surgical accuracy.
