Our Assessment: This P210 pistol was originally manufactured in 1947 and became the standard military pistol of the Swiss Army in 1949. It was manufactured continuously for over 55 years. The pistols were decommissioned and replaced by the SIG P220 (Swiss Army designation Pistole 75) but P210s are greatly valued by shooting sports competitors. This is the P210-5 Target model which has a matte blue finish, an adjustable rear sight, extended barrel with a replaceable front sight, and the European bottom magazine release. This one has been kept in immaculate condition by its previous owner and comes with the case candy!! The P210-5 Target was manufactured in limited quantities, so to find one, let alone in this condition is special. These guns are regarded by collectors as one of, if not, the best constructed handgun ever, and the originals are always increasing in value. It should be a great investment and a wonderful addition to your collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
