I have an older W. German Sig P220 with all original matching serial numbers on the parts in very good condition. I am thinking about getting a replacement barrel and using that barrel for range duty in this firearm.

Sig offers two barrels, that are not threaded. One is just a regular P220 barrel and the other is listed as a Chrome/Phosphate barrel. What is or are the difference(s) between the two and how do you justify getting one over the other?

The Chrome/phosphate is a chrome lined bore and chamber, and a phosphate outer finish instead of bluing, for a "military type" model like the P220 Combat, no doubt. The chrome lined barrel is more durable, but normally a little less accurate. The other offering is a standard barrel with a Nitron finish, not a lot different than your original.

Thanks! I'll probably just order a standard replacement barrel and see if it will work for my application.

That is debatable with respect to rifles and irrelevant to combat pistols.
