Swiss SIG P49, part of the 2nd series, 4th delivery (Version A) to the Swiss Army, is in good condition with 60% original finish. 4/5 Bore. Slide, frame, and barrel matching serial numbers. Lightly worn rifling.
The frame overall exhibits very heavily worn bluing. This is difficult to see in the photos due to the very reflective nature of the frame. The high area of the frame on the left and right sides and the underside of the frame are almost completely in the white. The magazine has been polished and is in the white. There is a scratch on the left side of the frame where the slide stop lever has been scratched against the frame. Typical mark in the frame from safety selector usage.
Black plastic grips have light handling wear and very good checkering.
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.
