    #'s on SIG 220 CPO.

    Assuming I decide to purchase a CPO 220, what numbers or physical characteristics should I be aware of to get a handle on how old it is?
    Does SIG have a cutoff point for how old a gun they will sell under the CPO program?
    I mean, are they pretty recent or is it possible to buy a 20 year old 220?

    TX.

    Most of the older guns traded or sold back to SIG have already
    been sold as CPOs.

    There are already newer models like the P220 compact being sold
    as CPOs.

    If you look at the bottom of the slide up front there will be a two letter code that gives the year of manufacture and also the proof house code (at least on the old carbon steel slides)
    A=0 B=1 C=2 D=3 E=4 F=5 G=6 H=7 J=8 K=9
    My P220 and P266 are both KA my P228 is a KF
    Just FYI there has been some grumbling on the Sigforum about extractor issues with the newer P220s with the stainless slides. No matter what year it was built your CPO will have a one year factory warranty so don't worry about getting an older one, it may actually work to your advantage!
