Hey guys…..

So here is my new to me P220E. See photos. Only a few mags through her so great shape. Born September 2010. SN#G517XXX
My question is, the frame says made in Germany and has DE stamp so that’s clear but what about the slide? Would it be from the USA?
Any insights of any kind welcome as older P220s not my expertise but just couldn’t resist the Classic beauty of this firearm and couldn’t resist adding it to the stable. Thanks!

To answer your question, the slide in US made. The frame is German made and the gun is assembled in the US.

Like new. Seller says he only put a few mags through it and been in his safe for years. Seller was a retired army officer In his early 80s I would estimate. Day we met to do the transaction he was CC a P226 Extreme at 2:00. Paid about what a new P226 would run. Kind of bought it blind and pounced quickly so didn’t have time to do any research. Just wanted it even if I were to find I over paid a bit. Any idea on value?

Pre pandemic/lawlessness/election, at least $1,100 like new, because they discontinued them when people still wanted them. 😁

A nice used one just sold on Gunbroker for a hair under $1,200. If I had thought I could have gotten at that price, I might have bought it just to have another. 😄
They have been selling for more.

Ok. Thanks. So looks like I paid right at fair market value then. I’m good with that considering it’s like new condition and such a beauty.

Congratulations! I've found that mine shoots various types of factory personal defense rounds quite accurately; group below was from 15 yards out, I need to take a picture of a group @ 25 yards sometime... enjoy your love affair, years later and I'm still in the honeymoon phase :love:
