I read somewhere that Sig was going to import the classic P-210, but now i cannot find the post and I may have just been dreaming... Anyone recall anything about this?

And they are made in Germany instead of Swiss.

SIG-Sauer (Germany) is making two new variations of the P-210 for the civilian market, production seems to be slow and in batches.

SIG P-210 Legend (MSRP = $2199)

I saw some genuine old-style Swiss surplus P210's for sale recently. I thought it was AIM Surplus that had them; but if it was then they're sold out, cuz they aren't listed anymore. They had like a $2699 price tag on them or thereabouts.

Now I'm going to be laying awake at night trying to figure out where I saw them. :confused:

For over $2K you would think it is going to be very well made- but no Swiss cross on it :(
Too bad Sig didn't produce them in Switzerland.

One of most over-rated guns in history.

Wow. Don't know about $2K and change. Nice though. Is it just the limited numbers that make them so expensive?

My guess would be a mixture of name recognition, quality, and numbers. It is a very nice pistol but I would much rather have another good 1911.

Original 210's are fantastic pistols, I recently sold mine to a lucky calgunner.

i mentioned in a recent thread about the P220... that Top Gun Supply had received a shipment of swiss army surplus P210 handguns, and were offering them for sale individually. the price was $2,499.99 each. i believe they sold out rather quickly.

just to add... i saw pictures of several of them on the SigForum from proud new owners, and these were truly beautiful examples of the P210.

One of most over-rated guns in history.

Because other out of the box service pistols are match grade, have a frame life upwards of 100k, possibly even more and can give 2" groups at 50 yards.

The steel Sig X5s :drool5: can do the same thing in a much lower price range. Many modern non-specialty target 1911s, a few CZs, and some others can also do it.

Good frame lifetime and accuracy in a pistol is already here in cheaper ways. Remember that a 2" group at 50 is a 4" group at 100, so 4 MOA.

I do see a niche for this in that it was the first "out of the box service pistol" to do this, so for collector value, sure. I drool over one whenever I see one on display at the gunshow (with a $5k pricetag when they are $3k online so not really "for sale"), but realistically there isn't anything it can do that can not be done better by other pistols. Remember that we have had 64 years of engineering to improve on the design.

I would love to get a p210 legend. Haven't heard of anyone doing SSE on them yet.
Probably way to small of a market to bother. I'll absolutely buy a surplus Swiss one when we move in a few years. Colorado gun sales usually has a stock of surplus 210's fo sale.

You seem to have missed the service pistol part. A target pistol isn't a service pistol. An X5 isn't a service pistol. We are talking about box stock 92fs, G17's, P226's and CZ 75s. None of them can touch the p210 in the accuracy department.


Good frame lifetime and accuracy in a pistol is already here in cheaper ways.

Not really. The average frame life for any of the aluminum pistols is around 30k rounds. So factor in the longevity and the price is almost the same.


Remember that a 2" group at 50 is a 4" group at 100, so 4 MOA.

Yeah, and 4moa is the acceptable standard for a combat rifle. I rest my case.



but realistically there isn't anything it can do that can not be done better by other pistols. Remember that we have had 64 years of engineering to improve on the design.

And in 64 years of engineering you are still going to need to spend close or equal to the amount of a reasonably priced 210 to get the same level of accuracy, likely at a cost of reliability.

So I don't think its accurate to say that other pistols can 'do it better' since A) there aren't any service pistols that come close and B) the ones that do are target shooting race guns that aren't suitable for combat.

the P210 has long been on my short list.
