Considering a sig purchase

I'm looking at a sig P226 .40SW with night sights that looks brand new. The model No. on the case says E26-40-BSS-DAK-G. Having never owned a Sig I don't know much about them and have several questions: what does the model number indicate; is that a current or obsolete model, and finally what would be a good price range assuming the gun has had about 50 - 100 rounds fired. Also the night sights appear weak.

Any guidance or comments would be appreciated.

Sirsigalot here:
I would suggest you go with the 229 in 40cal and if you want a 226 just get it in 9mm.

Was it new?

I believe you mentioned in another post you picked up a 229 in .40 and it has slide to frame "play." Was it new? Are there other SIGs for sale, if you purchased it from a store, that you can compare it to? I'm double checking mine tonight but it has been so reliable I call it thankfully boring. Maybe the best gun I've ever owned next to the 239.
