What's the big deal about the gun with W. Germany on it? I have it on my P226...
It's made in W.Germany. My slide says that too. Nothing special...I think the older ones were made there
just means it was made prior to the German reunification.
Older stamped slide sigs tend to have smoother triggers than the newer ones. People also claim that they are more balanced. Also these are supposed to be more reliable than the new ones.
Plus W. Germany no longer exists which is cool.
When I bought my 226 I made sure I got a W. German one. Plus the non railed SIgs look much better imo.
Not sure how you can get more reliable than perfect. All my Sigs are absolutely perfect through thousands of rounds.
I've put about 3k rounds through my sig and it's held up decent.... I've got a lot of chips in the finish however and am getting it replaced soon due to a defect in the grip.
