Yeah... I know this is a S&W forum... but here goes... This is the stock photo:

493316


It's the classic full size SIG semi-auto used by Navy Seal teams... built with some internal upgrades including a chrome lined barrel and phosphate finished interior.

The one I received was made this month, shipped directly from SIG. It's got a good out of the box trigger as well...

Now to get to the range.

I've had the Mk-25 for several years now. Helpful hint: The Sig P-226 Elite uses the same magazines. They are both a pleasure to shoot. I find both of mine prefer the 124's, but that may just be me.

I have an older P226 previously owned by a LEO. It was his undercover piece. Before that it was a former pistol that came to him from the FBI...I got it over 30 yrs. ago. Oldie but a very nice goodie. The new Sig's are super pistols. I wish mine could talk.

I have an older police surplus P229 in .40S&W that is a very good pistol. Shot some, carried a lot. Just loaded up 1,000 rounds of 185gn .40 S&W to feed it properly.

The polymer SIG pistols are well made, and very light (in the case of the P365 also very compact). I've also loaded some 125gn FMJ and 147gn truncated cone to feed my 9mm guns...

Both these have the machined slide. Early SIG pistols in this series had folded and welded slides made in their German facility. It's all US now, with newer precision computer driven machine tools in use.

You'll have to check the individual firearm, or ask the agency. Early ones were in .40S&W and are most likely to turn up surplus, but they were made in 9mm soon after introduction.

those are pricey guns! when you can find them. I've only seen one in person and the gun shop owner was back & forth on the price. He knew how desirable they were. was taking it on consignement from its'owner and wanted to squeeze the most $$$ he could on consignment fees. Not sure if the owner ever did consign it there, I left the store shortly after , but I did drool😊 all over it.
