I've been looking for an older version of the P239 and lucked out and found this one in 40 S&W. The shop owner said that when they receive guns in they remove them from their box, the gun gets displayed in the showcase and the box gets stored in the back room. While going through inventory a couple weeks ago he came upon the Blue Sig box and opened it and to his surprise the gun Never was taken out of the Box!!!!! It sat there in the store room and he did a check when he logged the gun in and it was Feb 2010. When I received the gun the box matches the serial number and the date on the box was October 29,2009.i thought this was a pretty cool story so I hope I didn't bore you guys OH I paid $765 for the gun which I thought was great for New.
