For the German made/proofed guns, the major parts (frame, slide, barrel) are kept together (so the numbers remain the same), unless one is severely damaged that they have to get a non-original part. If they had to get a non-original part, they milled out the non-matching serial number on the slide or barrel, a practice they did in the past. They don't add a new serial number to match the frame's.
Interesting. I have never seen an example of one milled out like that. I have seen where they milled out the M11. Do you have a picture of an example of the serial milling? Would like to see it, if you do. Thanks

[QUOTE=powermad;5231562]It's $1,067 at Buds, cash price.
For whatever reason the ones with E2 one piece grips are quite a bit less than the same gun with 2 piece poly or G10 grips.

Maybe it's the "Ultra-Rare" two piece grips.[/QUOTE

Crazy if that's what makes the price difference. I'm gonna hold out for the RX Legion SAO. Just hope the Legion coating on 226 is better than on my 320 XFive, had that one cerakoted. Swear you could look at it the wrong way and take the factory finish off.

This gun is my FrankenP228 (my old M11A1 frame that is mated to a P228 Ni slide that SIG built for me a few years ago). You can see where the serial number on the slide was taken out. Not a CPO, but this is exactly what they did for past German CPOs with non-matching numbers.
