Been looking at a SIG 1911, this just makes the deal sweeter.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

That's all fine and good, but I will NOT give my information out to a unknown party i.e. SSN etc. to redeem a rebate.
The kid making $8/hr at the main office is not gonna give 2 craps about a photocopy of my DD214 or military ID with my SSN on it.
I think they should ammend it to dealers upon visual confirmation of a retired ID card with no photocopy requirement would be a better way to go and place the burden on the dealer.
Just to "bend" this thread a little......
In this weeks Army Times there was a SIG ad, and basically if your Unit (members) would like, and can order a minimum of 25 weapons, SIG will throw in 3 mags, night sights, and engraving! The pistol in the paper had the patch of the 10th Mountain Div. engraved on it. I think the models offered under the program are the 220, 226, and 229.
Last year the EOD community had a commemorative run of 200 EOD 220s made to help raise money for the EOD Memorial Fund, but this was the first time I'd seen SIG advertise the service.
