kinda/sorta did:Well, he didn't exactly "swear proof positive" now did he?
That is SWEET!I picked up this nickel P239 from artimus009 here on SigTalk. The Sig CS rep I talked to wasn't able to tell me when it was made, so I'll have to try them again to see if I can get an exact date. When I bought it, he included his original receipt dated 06/2005, which puts it right there in the time frame to be the 04/2005 GOTM.
I just got it back Friday after sending it off to Sig for the service package. Compared to my nitron P239, it is 4 oz heavier. I changed the grips out to the Hogue aluminum ones. The gloss is OK, but I wish it was the matte finish to match my other SS models.

I'm with you Tony, but I have a few stainless Sigs, including old ST's and a newer X-Five. All the frames and the stainless slides I have grab a magnet post-haste.Steve, some SS alloys, such as SS 316, are essentially nonmagnetic and would not attract even a strong rare-earth magnet. I do not know what SS alloy is used by Sig Sauer for their slides and/or frames,........
If the bet involved me personally, I'd insist on using a scale!
