SIG Swiss Army P49 - sn A142xxx
Very good condition with 94% original finish. 5/5 Bore. Slide, frame, barrel matching serial numbers. Some holster wear on frame. Frame is P stamped. Discreet import engraving.
Please note in the photos, the finish on the slide appears uneven in the photo but this is an artifact from the photography process. The finish is even across the slide.
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). The military P49 is identified by it's A-Prefix serial number and has a distinct engraving of the Swiss shield above the slide just in front of the rear sight.
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.
