Any idea what my model number means

W365-9-B-MS-DE

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.

I’ve also seen the W prefix used on Law Enforcement Agency purchases. Another type of special edition I guess.

Sounds like some sort of special make up gun. How much did you pay for it? Any 365 is going for a premium right now.

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.

Here is an example of the P226 LDC made in NH that was intended for the German market. SIG decided to keep a few of them home and sell to us consumers.

Here are some SIGs made in NH that have made it across the pond. Notice they now have the proof marks required of all guns sold in C.I.P. countries. Obviously, these aren't mine.

Still $499 at PSA, and the Tac Pac is still $549. But you got to be quick, though, when you receive their email notification that they are in stock. Because they fly off the shelf very quickly.

The W LE/Govt guns usually come with 3 mags.

Some pictures for context. Obviously the ammo came later. I covered serials (I hope I got the ones that matter)
