Just picked up a P226 from the cabelas gun library. Little bit of an impulse buy but I wanted one and although this one has much wear I figured it could be a project.

I sent a request for date of manufacture etc but it predates 2005 and there records don’t go back that far. German frame with a stainless slide (357sig) I’m guessing it’s not the original slide but I figured I would ask the gurus on here that know more then me. So my question is if you guys think this is a different slide then what came originally on the frame?

Looks like she’s been in a bar fight or two. How do the internals look? Is there a sticker on the box?
Yep she’s rough! There is a sticker on the box and she doesn’t have a lot of slop in the slide/frame but there is wear marks. I’m either going to just shoot the **** out of it or spend some money to get it fixed up.

Looks like one of early American made stainless slide, German made frame. Possibly a late 90s build. Your picture doesn’t show the ejection port, so we can’t see if it has an internal or external extractor.

It also looks like it has the short trigger. Does it have an srt kit in it? Either way any 226 is a sound piece of equipment, congratulations.
I know nothing about it and neither did Sig. It’s the second sig I have bought so I honestly don’t know much about them or what to look for.

So this is going to probably be of little to no help to you, but I thought I would share just in case. I bought a P229 that looked identical to your P226 except mine also had silver controls. Stainless slide marked USA, and the frame made in Germany. I bought that one in 2002 I believe.

That sounds definitely in the time period and I am thinking that this may be similar in age but a p226
