I heard that the US was going to see a European police trade in Sig P220s, much like we saw the Sig P6. Is there any truth to this???

220's? You sure cuz those are .45's which aren't terribly popular anywhere else compared to standard 9mm NATO.

Not sure at all, that's why I am asking.

the P220 began it's tenure as a 9mm. it was made in 4 calibers in the past; 9mm, .45 ACP, .38 Super and .30 Luger. the .30 Luger is the most rare of the variants that were offered.

There are currently P228's being imported. Are you sure you aren't getting mixed up? I've heard nothing about P220's from Europe.

ditto here... on the P220 9mm; long on my short list.

OP... Top Gun Supply very recently received and have for sale... Sig P210 9mm handguns; these are advertised as military surplus from the swiss army. the posted price for one of these is $2,499.00.

xxxx... i mentioned the P210 shipment because it seems that whenever a shipment of old school Sigs comes in from europe, folks start to speculate on what's coming in next; that starts rumors.

i also mentioned the P210 shipment because i thought you and others might like to know.

sometimes rumors hold true, and sometimes they don't.

If the Swiss 210s are just coming in...it is going to be a while before we see any of their 220s. Too bad we won't be seeing any of those 210s in CA

Thank you! Looks like I'm going to have to save $2,500 somehow.
