yes it was and yes it might...you can leave the last 3 off if you feel you must but we may be able to get you closer...I may have missed ti but you don't have the original plastic grip plates???
AL P229s are from the early 2000s. Likely 2001 or 2002. It should be a solid gun but is a little after the sweet period for P229s.I have a sig 229 with no rail in 9mm. The serial number on the lower frame begins with AL. How can I date this firearm? Google is no help so far.
Thank you for any help what so ever.
interpolate:I already looked on that list but i couldn't find the 42 that came after the AL. So I guess my next question is what would the 42 mean if the serial number read AL 42 ***?
Welcome to SIG Talk!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.
