p226 serial number mystery!

Hey guys, incase you dont know i just purchased my first sig sauer this past weekend, and i will be picking her up next week! It is a SLIGHTLY used p226...

Just bought my first Sig Sauer!


Anyway, today i called sig, because i wanted to check to see if it was a factory refurb like the sales person told me. And when i read the serial number to the gentleman at sig he had no record of that serial number. He than proceeded to tell me that their records only go back to 2005?..... I than drove all the way back to cabelas to double check the number, and their was no mistake that was the serial number. I was really just curious as well to see what year my sig was made. The serial number starts out with the two letters "UU." Anyway, im not worried about this at all because the pistol is in amazing shape for being used. Any inputs? Thanks guys- RC

Sig Sauer Classic P-Series - Serial Number List and associated manufacture/import years/information - Topic

is a list compiled by contributors. I was able to narrow my 229-40 to 1995

With that serial, it is an all-Exeter NH pistol. Its hard to know the exact year without the other numbers, but I'm guessing its 2008-2010.

Thanks for the response guys, i appreciate...I just find it weird that Sig has no history of the weapon?

That's because they want us to pay for their certificates. Lol. Ill pass, especially when ruger has the years of manufacture listed on their website.

call a 2nd or 3rd time & you'll probably get another cs rep. some are better than others.

with a uu s/n, it's from well after '05.

I called Sig 3 times and got 3 different dates. Thats when I found the list and did my own homework. That's also why so many guys contributed to get the list as far as it has gone.
