sig sauer pistols

What is the straight scoop on the MK25. I just purchased one with a certificate of authenticity and now on a selling site they are advertising one with a GOLD anchor and the upc patch as being the "REAL" deal. I'm pretty sure mine is real for all internals are phosphate coated . Any opinions?

Is it at all possible that you have the Sig "Navy" and not the Sig Mk25? My Mk25 has both the gold anchor and the ID sticker.

Maybe your "Certificate of Authenticity" isn't worth the paper upon which it is printed? Scammers everywhere.

If you look at Sig's site or at the product catalog they show the MK25 as having a white anchor engraved on the slide. I did a quick Internet search and it seems that some of the original MK25's had a gold anchor. As long as the gun that you have has the night sights, the UID label, came with 3 magazines, and has the white anchor it should be a MK25.

I've never seen the Gold Anchor until I read about it here today. I'd rest easy that you got a legit one. did you register it with Sig? if there was a problem with it being legit I would think they'd let you know PDQ.

I found this link from the truth about guns site and it refers to the gold anchor, but funny thing is, the pictures listed, the anchor looks white to me. maybe its white gold. :-) in fact just about every link I found that referred to the gold anchor, the pictures all looked white in color, so maybe its a really faint gold that's hard to distinguish. maybe someone can post a close up photo of their gold anchor mk25.

ok, I take it all back, and maybe it's not showing up in the photos correctly after my rant about the white anchor on the website photos. I just picked up my mk25 from the FFL and it has a gold anchor. it's not shiny or anything and looks more like am off-color white than a true bright gold, so I think maybe the photos on the websites are the same gold color I am seeing. I will try and take some close up in good light and see if I can get the gold to show up on a photo.
