Question on new to me P220 model...

Bought two new SIGs yesterday....got a great deal on a Scorpion and P220.

Question is about the P220 and it's model designation. When I saw it I thought hey here's a nice looking P220....the sales man said it's a P220 Combat...but it doesn't look like any P220 Combat in any of the pictures I have seen on Google...I bought it cause it looks brand new but it did not come with its original box so I dont have a label to verify its model.

After doing some research it seems I may have gotten a limited production run of a model called a P220 Military.....anybody heard of these before? I have only found one single picture of them on google and absolutely only two sentences of information on them...

Can anyone help me out here and tell me what I have if I take is a P220 Military?

Never heard of such a model. If you could post a picture of it, I might be able to identify it.

Just a sec let me upload the one pic I found on Google...my camera along with my IPhone is DOA at the moment so I can't take a pic of the actual gun yet.

That is one of many "Special Production" models that SIG puts together occasionally. I've seen that one listed for sale a number of times on GunBroker and on GunsAmerica websites. In fact, I believe I saw one just like it on there recently.

SIG often puts together special configurations of parts for sale that aren't normal, catalogued items. Their part numbers always end in "SP" for "Special Production". Almost all of these end up on the "Individual Officers Program" (IOP) which is a special discount pricing program intended to be sold only to LEOs, other first responders and military personnel. Many occasionally get out onto the open market and are sold to regular civilians. All IOP guns part numbers begin with the letter 'W'.

I have a "Special Production" P226 in .40S&W that is built on the MK25 frame. It's part number was "W226-40-SP".

Here is the same gun on GunBroker.

Very nice pistol. I love the P220 and I love those Extreme grips on a black pistol.

I believe a true Combat model has a 1913 Picatinny rail, not SIG's rail.

Get yourself an uplula mag loader, almost removed my thumb on mine. Still tight will eventually loosen up, maybe after like a million rounds.
