    Anyone have any experience with the new American made one? The original Swiss and German ones were tack driving fools, but I understand the American ones have a different barrel to keep their costs down so I’m wondering if they are P210’s in name only. I want a 9MM but I want an accurate 9 MM. A Springfield Armory Range Officer in 9 MM is another option in my consideration.

    I had one in .45 and had no complaints about it either.

    i have no first hand experience with the new Sig 210, but I cant recall reading any review that was negative. Looks like a very fine pistol.

    also, lots of original 210 pistols available second hand.

    I'm looking forward to learning how the new US made 210 stacks up against the older European made models..

    I finally had a chance to handle one of these. They are not legal in my State unless you’re a law enforcement officer, a member of my team is and got himself one. I’m impressed! I’m not sure if they ever become available I can see myself owning one however; except for the option of different ammo my S&W 52 is more accurate, with as nice a trigger. If I didn’t own the 52 I’d be all over one of these Siggs however.

    Silky smooth slide, a clean trigger, and nicely located controls. For a single stack the grips were a major handful, almost to the point of being uncomfortable for my single hand shooting; but that’s what they make rotary cutters and aftermarket grips for.

    They are rare birds and not inexpensive but if you want a nice target pistol right from a box I’d suggest taking a good look at one. You could build a custom to shoot and function as well but unless you do a lot of your own work you’ll be way ahead with the stock P210.

    The 210 is a real dream pistol for me. Such an elegant firearm.

    I was just gonna say S&W 52 forget 9MM but thought you probably had one!

    I shot one some years back and agree it's a top shelf pistol.

    Yes, that is the only short coming to the 52 VS the Sigg (.38 wad cutters only). The Sigg I assume would swallow anything in 9MM you offered it.

    I have only shot older 210's but I have seen a new 210 in person...

    You can tell the difference between the two.
    Technology is on the side of the new ones and old world craftsmanship is on the older ones...
    Ultimately I believe they will shoot similar without bias.

    If you are a person that is effected by Karma, Chi, or Aura you will prefer the older ones.

    I don’t believe I have ever seen an old one but I would not be surprised if they were a lot better looking. The example I looked at had a modern oxide type finish and wood that looks like it was machine checkered, I’d bet the old ones were blued with nice old growth wood and must be stunning.

    Living in the Bay State can suck at times.

    We have a some odd game laws. One of them hunting at night with anything larger than 38 caliber. That itself is an open ended statement.

    I thought of the P210 as a great Massachusetts outdoors gun. Some decent power for varmints like coyotes but with the 210 platform great accuracy.

    Too bad they aren't Mass compliant.

    I have always liked the Sig P210, but never had one. The closest I have come is the French SACM 1935A, and CZ-75 which have elements of the P-210. In fact I think Swiss Sig used the SACM 1935 A as a model for its modularity.

    Had a Sacm 35A many years ago, sold it when surplus ammo dried up. Not nearly as well finished as my friends P210.
    The Petter Patent design was recognizably similar though.
