    Any Collectors out there? SigArms P226 Mis-stamp

    A friend of mine has a mid-80's SigArms P226. These are usually stamped "Tysons Corner, VA", but his has a typo. It's stamped "Lysons Corner, VA". He wants me to try to find out what it's worth. So far, the only thing I've come up with is one guy on SigForums who has one and wanted to know the same thing, but nobody answered.

    Anyone here know anything about it?

    "Lysons Corner VA" Miss-Stamp

    I also have one of these rare guns. ( P226 chambered in 9mm para ) Proof marked for 1986, and stamped "Lysons" instead of "Tysons" I contacted Sig Sauer themselves, and after being on hold for only a few minutes, the gentleman came back with the following information ...

    1) Yes, there was an error where around 200 slides were miss-stamped with Lysons Corner VA

    2) 70 or less made it out of the factory, the remaining errors were destroyed.

    3) As for value, the gentleman I spoke with said 5-10 Xs retail easily... putting a value of $6000 to $11,000 depending on condition.

    Please feel free to contact Sig Sauer yourself, they are more than willing to be helpful with any information you may need pertaining to Sig.

    Also, another tidbit of information, a few of the Lysons errors were serial #ed U 141 XXX (mine being one)... prior to serial number U 141 001, the frame was upgraded as well, so the error combined with a new frame upgrade... Should make for a nicely valued collectors gun. Hope you find this to be helpful...

    Best regards, Yerton76

    That puts it in the price range of a U.S. Army contract Ainsworth inspected Colt Single Action Army revolver.

    Makes you think though... Less than 70 vs the Winchester One of One Thousand... Which has auctioned for over $90,000 recently... To the right collector, the Lysons Errors could attain that value one day easily ...
