Not much. The MK 25 is Sig's release of the same model that's issued to each and every Seal member. The pistol is identical - if you own a Navy Anchor model with rails then you have an MK25.

Does it have a rail on the bottom of the frame/barrel?

There were older versions of the navy model that did not have a rail at all, and another version with the standard Sig rail, which is narrower and rounded on the bottom. The MK25 has an M1913 rail, which is wider than the Sig rail and flat on the bottom. When you see it, you can tell. It's a bit harder to find holsters for the mk25 because of the larger rail, but it is mil-standard, which was the goal behind that particular pistol.

Are the older ones more rare or harder to find?

From what I understand the non-railed version is a bit more rare, but I'm not sure about the model with the standard Sig rail. There were even some minor variations in that model as well. If I'm not mistaken, there was one variation on the standard Navy model (not the MK25) that did not come with a chrome-lined barrell like the others.

The main difference of the new MK25 is all of the components are coated to withstand saltwater. Prior models did not have this coating on the internals and these do. This is an "exact" copy of the pistol the Navy Seals carry.

I have one of the original P226 Navy with the NSW serial number with no rail. All internal parts are phosphated along with the magazines.

All three models of the Navys have phospated inner parts and take down lever&hold open are all finished that way. They all function equal and all three have one piece stainless steel slides. It was the only slide the NSW would take them. 1st no-rail,2nd sig-rail ,3rd 1913 mill-spec rail. They used all 3 models. I own all 3 models. They all get shot and used.

The big difference btween the Sig railed Navy MK24 is the rail its the sig rounded rail and the MK25 has the military 1913 flat rail. Operaters found out that the 1913 military attachments would rattle on the rounded Sig rail.
