ab/229 isn't the same for other dating of sigs in op.I own a very early P229 thats AB. This date does not add up. mine is from the early 90s AB135XX. that date code at the top of the page shows 01?
for informational purpose... the 2 numbers inside grip panels do not always jive with the year of gun's manufacture. sometimes a new gun had grips that were manufactured prior to the gun's year of assembly. things just didn't always line up perfectly.Thanks, Reliable. That's a new one for me. I just picked up a German 228 at a gunshow here (new, in box, unfired), and the inside grip panel indicated 1993. The KD stamp on the slide confirms this. Thanks again !
