Any idea what my model number means
As my name suggests it is a new gun. I believed I was buying the more comon 365-9-BXR3-MS. I didn't think to verify model numbers before purchasing. Yes a noob mistake. I have done several searches online and can't seem to find my Version anywhere. Sig's website has no references to this model number. Currently I feel a bit ripped off as the B seems to stand for basic sights(only a guess but I don't seem to have night sights). I didn't think a basic sight version existed as various internet searches returned only the night sights versions. I expect it's some special version my retailer ordered to pump their profit.
Guesses so far
W365-365 is common, but the W is not? May he a reference to the retailer?
9- standard across the board most likely 9mm
B- the basic sights I seem to have ? (Aligns with the spot other sigs refer to the much nicer night sights)
MS- manual safety?
De- Delaware? Or Germany? A Google search turns up multiple possiblities including UK ministry of defense?
My sig seems to be a normal 365 besides the sights. Came with 2 mags and seems to have the standard finish.
Thanks for any help

I googled it.
The DE Stands for De horned. My Guess similar to the SAS
The MS Manual safety
B Basic Night Sights
W most likely a Special edition of sorts
Found a couple of them that started with W365
being mentioned a a specifically named Gun Shop
Checked the 2020 discontinued list and nothing close is listed.

Unless someone has the Full Scoop it looks like yours will be a first and when you get it you can let us know what you have.
I'm on the edge of my seat in anticipation..
When are you supposed to receive it?

W = Gov/LE
DE = Deutschland (aka Germany). If you SIG has "DE" anywhere on the gun, it is exactly that. Intended for the German market. It should also has the "US" and the birth year marking on it.
B = Black
MS = Manual safety

If it doesn’t have BXR3 in the model number then it won’t have the X-ray 3.
This one from bass pro shops just has contrast white sights.
