Yes I know some of this can be gotten from the sig site, but not the discontinued and older models.

example

Is a P228 the same as a M11?? and if not WHY, WHAT, Who?

OR what is the difference between a P225 and P225-1? What is a P225, isn't that same as the P239?

What the HE$$ is a P6?

Why did browning make something that was a sig, don't even remember what it was? or what model??

MK25, Isn't that just a P226 with a logo (Anchor) on it?, or is it different than a regular P226?

What is it with the rifles, MCX, MPX, 516, 516 Carbon, 556?? Aren't these all basically the same thing, they all shoot 5.56 don't they??

I am so confused, I feel really dumb right now
I'm the same as You, Confused when I see the different models being discussed.
I even wonder id the stickers on the box/case gas that info.
I have two S&W Revolvers that I purchased new and I could not tell You if My Model 10
is ---- Turns out My Model 28 was a reconditioned one sold to Me as New and was not
even in the original box. A G S told me about three years later when I took both in for
Trigger jobs.

My LGS asked me once if I owned one of every SIG made.
I laughed and said: "Not by a long shot."

Below is a partial sequence of the classic P-Series guns from the history page on SIG's website. The introduction dates are from several sources, confirmed by a serial number list on one of the SIG forums. If a model was designed for a specific purpose, that is shown in parentheses.

P210 - 1949 (Swiss Army)
- chambered in 9mm
- partially based on Charles Petter's design for the French Modele 1935A
P220 - 1975 (Swiss Army)
- originally chambered in 9mm
- adopted in 9mm as the P75 as the primary handgun of the Swiss miilitary
- commercially imported to the US as the Browning BDA
- later chambered in .45 ACP for the US market
P230 - 1976 (Swiss Police)
- chambered in .32 and .380
P225 - 1978 - compact P220 (German Police)
- chambered in 9mm
- named the P6 for German police and P225 for commercial sales
P226 - 1982 (US Army trials)
- originally chambered in 9mm
- changed in the early 1990s to a milled slide beefed up for .40 S&W and later the .357 SIG
P228 - 1988 - compact P226
- chambered in 9mm
- adopted by the US military as the M11
P229 - 1992 - derived from P228
- milled slide was beefed up for .40 S&W and later the .357 SIG in 1994
- chambered in 9mm in 1996

and room for (a lot of) argument:
M11-A1 - a 9mm P229 dressed up like the military's M11 version of the P228
P225-A1 - a 9mm P239 top end on a modified P229(?) frame meant to be an improved P225

Not enough, IMHO

I notice you are not a fan of 40SW at all. But a P229 in 40SW (Equinox) won't hurt.

That is a collection to be admired, for sure. Congrats and keep at it.

I've got that one 1911 but that's it. Just not much into the stainless, kinda on the heavy side for my liking.

I'm going to try and sum it up in a basic way. I'm not going to include all the finish variants, internal/external extractor, German vs. W. German, etc... or any of the polymer guns.

P210: Target-size, single stack, steel slide, 9mm

P220: Full-size, single stack, carbon steel slide (stainless steel slide currently), 45 ACP and 10mm (stainless slide only), (originally also offered in 9mm and .38 Super in carbon steel slides)

P224: Compact, double stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm, .357 SIG, and .40 S&W

P225: Mid-size, single stack, carbon steel slide, 9mm

P6: Mid-size, single stack, carbon steel slide, 9mm (this is the German Police version of the P225)

P225-A1: Mid-size, single stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm

P226: Full-size, double stack, carbon steel slide (stainless steel slide currently), 9mm, .357 SIG, and .40 S&W (only available in 9mm in carbon steel slide)

P227: Mid-size, double stack, stainless steel slide, .45 ACP

P228: Mid-size, double stack, carbon steel slide, 9mm

M11-A1: Mid-size, double stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm (an updated version of P228)

P229: Mid-size, double stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W

P230: Sub-compact, single stack, stainless steel slide, .380 ACP

P232: Sub-compact, single stack, stainless steel slide, .380 ACP

P238: Sub-compact, single stack, stainless steel slide, .380 ACP, (this is a 1911 style gun)

P239: Compact, single stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W

P245: Compact, single stack, carbon steel slide, .45 ACP

P938: Sub-compact, single stack, stainless steel slide, 9mm, (this is a 1911 style gun)

Many of the models are offered in all stainless steel and/or Elite versions. Elite versions have forward cocking serrations and a beaver-tail. A Dark version is a black all-stainless version. Match versions come with an extended slide and barrel.

Look here for other SIG references:

SIG WEAPONS
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIG_Sauer

Hopefully I got everything mostly right. Feel free to point out any errors or add any info.
