P210-5 question for you collectors
I went to a gun store today and was shocked to find a LNIB P210-5, and for not a lot of money. The catch is that it did not have a 150 mm barrel like I thought it should. It had a 120 mm 30 luger barrel, with no serialization or markings on the barrel. That seems odd since I thought all P210-5 models have either a 180 or 150 mm barrel. The other weird thing is that it has a white dot front sight, and it didn't appear to be the right width for the slide. So my guess is that someone lost the 150mm barrel, put in a regular 120mm barrel, and installed a front sight.
That brings up a few questions:
- Were any P210-5s made with 120mm barrels?
- If I found a 150mm barrel, do they drop in or are they fitted?
- Should the correct barrel have a serial number on it?
