229 Model number

I just bought a CPO 229 SN AM106xxx MN JDE229-40-B1. This gun appears to be the Extreme model with the Sig blue G10 grips. I'm trying to verify that its an Extreme or not. Looks new with the refurbish job. Sights are bright and it seems to have a SRT. I can't decipher the model number and haven't had any luck on the innerweb. Thanks, Ken

After comparing with my two, and some checking online, the serial number would place your weapon at early/mid 2009. The B1 on the end of the numbers has me wondering but sadly I cannot add any further than that one element (if that even was an add).

SIG often creates CPOs out of an assortment of options that may have not ever been sold in that particular configuration. SIG will create special "part numbers" for those. I've seen a CPO part number used for different configurations of a gun.

The J in the MN is surely a U. It looks like the sticker cutting person was on break.

Looks like a German frame.

This might help you determine if it has the SRT or standard trigger mech:

Your gun looks like the standard P229R of that time period. I've got one slightly earlier (AM90XXX) and it's a great shooter. Congrats.

Good visual aid, TF!
Good to show how you can tell without removing the grips.

Thanks, I remember installing one for a friend some time ago. Memory is not what it used to be
