1st post, need help with P220ST
This is embarrassing, but hey, I'm not proud to be stupid.
I have a Sig P220 ST I got in trade with a local guy. Not too long ago I decided to strip the slide (I can and have stripped the frame many times). This was a huge mistake that resulted in cosmetic damage to the cocking serrations and the complete destruction of the firing pin positioning pin. After cleaning everything and installing a new pin I could not live with the damage to the slide and decided to break out my trusty dremel and repair them. Another huge mistake.
In the end I did the only thing I could think of and removed the cocking serrations all together. I went from bad to worse to horrible.
I'm looking at four options:
1) Keep it as is
2) Sell it as is for a cut rate price
3) Junk the slide and part out the frame and internals(Mags, Barrel, Levers, etc.)
4) Replace the slide
3 and 4 are the ones I need help with.
Is there any kind of a market for frames and internals?
Will most any P220 slide fit my ST frame? If so, could I go with a newer external extractor slide or even an older stamped slide.

Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania.
Dremels can be dangerous!
I'm thinking option #1 , as a utility piece, #2, if you can find a buyer, or #4, if you can find a slide. You may need to send it out to a gunsmith that has a slide from some other project. You could also contact Sig Customer Service and ask if there is anything they can do to help you.
You may need to get some skateboard tape on the slide just to be able to rack it.
That's such a bummer I really do not know what to say.

I've stripped the slide only in armorer's school and once on my personal gun.
It is one of the things you never want to do unless neccessary, and I'm pretty sure I know exactly what you did wrong.
Any 220 slide will fit the frame, if I were you I'd part out the whole gun and just buy a new 220-SSS from me for $850.

I would contact Sig and explain your predicament. They are very forgiving in many cases and may just ask that you ship your slide to them or the entire gun. They can and will get your gun shooting again. And as far as serrations go, they can be machined back onto the slide. Remember, it is a SIG!!
