My German-made P226 doesn't have any markings under the muzzle at all. Only on the side, near the serial number. Says DE which is the code for Deutschland, or Germany and not 1934, I'm pretty sure!
However, the serial number being U841xxx, puts the manufacture somewhere around April/May 2009.

Looking to date your German Sig
I have a W. German stamped Sig P228 that shows proof marks of 1990, grips showing the same. Love it! After purchase I sent it back to Sig for a cleaning, new night sights, springs, and a barrel re-crown. It's a sweet little gun...

I recently acquired a SIG226 from a friend. I've been trying to date it, but having issues...
The slide indicates that it was made in W. Germany in 1980!!! I am pretty sure SIG226s werent made as early as that...I need to check the serial number against the prototype SIG226 serial number list I just found online.
Anyone know if they were making these by 1980?
I've shot the gun (about 300rnds) and it is sooooo sweet to shoot...much nicer than my Glock23.

I have just bought a Sig P226K model, S/N U 303 059, Made in West Germany. Any idea date of manufacture? Is the S/N verification that this is a "K" model? Letter on frame below muzzle is JJ. I assume that would indicate 1988.

Your assumption of 1988 manufacture is a good one and correct! This based on both the S/N and code on the chin.
Nice acquisition, congrats!
By the way, no pix, it don't exist!!!

Realizing this is a 3-year old thread, I still would like to input my SIG P232 to the list of serial numbers and ages (or date of manufacture).
P-232 (232-380-SSS) S -323xxx (it has no other letters but DE, which I assume is DEutschland). According to the case, it was manufactured in March 2013.

newer SIGs are easier to date 'cuz they have the date on the box...yours is newer than any on that old list and I'd bet it would be the date on your case...March 2013...enjoy your German P232...
back "in the day" we didn't have the luxury of having a date code on the box or case...you had to guess or go by the resource bearone2 provided above...you could buy a SIG but have no idea how long it was sitting on someone's shelf...
