Yes, My P228 Triple serial number German Proof Mark made in 1989 came in a Red cardboard box.Not sure what other models or years came that way. If you can find the article by Sigtalk member 12131 about the P228 there is lots of info concerning box colors. It runs about 70 pages.It was originally posted on the other green Forum. There were also Green Yellow and Gray boxes too.I am familiar with what Red Box means but were there ever Sig pistols sold in Red Boxes that were flat out new (not CPO/reconditioned) if you go back far enough? Were there instances were red box didn’t mean red box as we know it today?
