Some truth to that. I have guns from the late 1800`s and early 1900's that shoot great.

Dang it! It arrives tomorrow, but my FFL is closed today and tomorrow for Easter. Oh, well. I guess I'll see her Tuesday. :thumbsup:

I sent my 88 into SIG for the SSP. Had a lot of light primer strikes before. Runs like a dream now.

She's here. Excellent condition. Not pristine to where I wouldn't want to shoot it but still damn near new. 3 matching serials. 2 German mags.

Nice. I found a mint German P220 not too long ago, barely fired. looked like it just came out of the case.

I've replaced all the easily accessible springs using the parts kit. I didn't realize until today that the slide catch lever spring was different between older and newer models. It installed and works fine. I assume it's okay to use?

Thanks....a local guy has one for sale with the yellow box too and I'm trying to avoid it!!
It does look good!
BTW, keep an eye on Sig's web site, if I remember correctly they sometimes have a
Father's Day sale on their services!

Thanks for that link, MC. I downloaded it, printed and put in a binder.

Now I'm shopping for the tools to install SIG parts kit on a 239 and two 226s.

Good looking gun. Change springs, shoot it until the springs loosen up in a few years, replace again.

Nice purchase.
