SP 2022 interesting facts
I came across this historic info regarding the SIG PRO 2022 I found interesting:
The original Sig Pro was titled the 2340, it was originally chambered in .40S&W and .357 Sig. It had a very rounded trigger and did not feature the picatinny rail that has been adopted on the SP2022.
Following the 2340 was the SP2009 released in 1999. This weapon was very similar to the 2022 in that it features a 3.9" barrel and weighs in at 25.2 oz.
In 2002 the Sig Pro 2022 aka SP2022 was introduced in a service contract with the French Police for a contract of 20 years, which is why it is called to 2022. The new weapon would feature 3 different calibers, 9mm, .357 and .40S&W with a conversion kit being available to convert your .40S&W to .357 Sig. This weapon would also feature the ultra-universal picatinny rail to mount virtually ANY aftermarket accessory. The pistol is a Double Action of Single Action semi-automatic meaning that the first pull of the trigger is twice as long as the shots that follow. During the first pull, the hammer goes from it's un-cocked position all the way back and then forward to fire, upon firing the hammer will then re-cock itself so that each remaining trigger pull is from the cocked position. The Double Action trigger pull is the primary reason the weapon does not feature a manual safety.

Did you also know that the SP2022 is the only modern autopistol that features an RFID chip integrally molded into the frame for easier identification and tracking? It's right underneath the serial number plate, so it cannot be removed without damaging the serial number.
Not really, but I just like to stir the pot

Take it easy on the new guy, here...I've been on the outside, looking in, with respect to being a handgun owner, for far too long, and so I have alot of catching up to do. Don't confuse me any more than I already am!

The RFID chip contained therein is a "tracking and identification chip." It allows for recognition of the serialized weapon whilst allowing the FBI and DHS to track exactly where the weapon goes and exactly which pistol it is, save for aftermarket modifications. It also has imbedded coding to instantly gain access to all mobile and Wi-Fi networks, without the need to enter any passwords. This makes it possible, and much easier, for the eventual confiscation of said weapon.

I have great imagination, of average writing skill. NO continuity whatsoever. It would be a good movie for about 10, after which, nothing would make sense.

There are infact two slots inside the frame where something can be inserted. Next time you break down your 2022, look in the muzzle end on each side above the serial plate.
Here is the reason for them taken from SIG PRO FAQ.
What is the purpose of the two slots inside the SP 2022 dust cover?
Though not present in SP 2009 or SP 2340 frames, the SP 2022 frame includes two slots inside its dust cover.
The slots are for holding transporders, and are used by the French Police. The transponders include information such as the serial number and production date
