My personal ranking from most to least favorite of these "colored" Xguns:
  • Black & White
  • Blue Moon
  • Scandic
  • Emerald
  • Blue Pearl
  • Ruby
  • Gold Dragon
I refused to own any except the B&W.
The Scandic was also carried over to Gen2, beside the B&W.
Ah yes . . I forgot . . I had option to purchase Gen 2(e) Chose the Gen 1 Any difference other than the Rail ?

Here is another "colored" Xgun - The P226 Midnight. This one has no Gen1 counterpart, because it was a brand new model announced last year as SIG DE was closing up shop. The completed and proofed guns were not finished until this year, based on the CB date code. I suppose you can, since it has the gold accents, classify it as a "colored" gun. I really love the polished black job on the Midnight, and I would put it above the B&W in eye appeal, not because of the gold, but because of the polished black.

Now, we know that they made only 10 P226s in Midnight configuration (7 X-Sixes and 3 X-Fives) base on the letter by Hendrik Giessler, their Head of Sales. But, the production numbers of the rest of the colored Xguns are unknown, and likely will never be known.
Yes I agree . . I Posted Response a Lengthly Response but it hasn't been Posted Yet . . . HMMMM ?

Does any one have a Clue about the P210 Midnight 5 . . ?? We have the Production numbers on the P226 Midnight 5 but have seen nothing on the P210 . . AND there has only been one (1) at Auction . . Is it possible there could be less P210 5's than the P226 X5's . . Can't find and those "in the Know' have No Idea . . //

Two reasons you only see one at auction. First, GB completed auctions only stay on for about 2 months then get pruned from site. So, unless you save the pages or can find them in the WayBack Machine, they are lost forever. Second, you haven't followed them Midnights since the beginning. MMBI started selling the P210s back in Nov 2019. I got their very 1st US sale, the 6-incher. Then, the 5-incher. This was way way before anyone knew about SIG DE shutting down. So, the prices were crazy affordable. Are you ready? I got their 5-incher from GB for $3375! They sold a few more after. And, although I no longer recall how many exactly, I can tell you the number is no less than the P226 X-Five Midnight.

To me colored guns are like car wheels with spinners... designed to impress everyone else, not me.

Pay the horrific $$ uplift on cosmetics? It's like a fancy prostitute while being used it's no different than a plain vanilla model :)
