    Does it have any other signs of being fired?
    I bought a used P220 Carry that had less wear than that.

    But I polished the barrel and guide rod....

    Sent from this... Using that...

    It was on the shelf. I have put 50 rounds through it, but the wear was there before I shot it. The date on the box is Nov. 2011 and I bought it in feb. of the year.

    I the op I said unfired because the wear marks were there before I shot it.

    Brand new? I'll almost guarantee it's been fired. I've put around 3k rounds through my P220 and it looks like that now. Hard to say, but SIGs are known for lower tolerances and higher rated recoil springs compared to others. If it's a stainless slide I might see consistent dry cycling over a year's period creating the marks. You'll be able to tell by looking in the barrel for sure.

    Well I know it was fired at the factory, but would that wear be from that?

    rack it a few times and you have some marks
    get a bored sales dude who plays with it for 20 minutes....

    i watched one wrist snap-close a new S&W revolver for 10 minutes while we chatted.
    i than told him i was interested in that gun but to get another
    he asked me why?? gotta wonder about some people...

    there shouldn't be that kind of wear on a new gun,almost looks like somebody bought it,shot it for awhile,then took it back and traded it in,or the store has an employee that " borrows" guns to shoot,then puts them back and sells them as "New"
