A couple of months ago I saw an ad for a cheap (CHF 1000) Sig P210-2 (milsurp P49) from a private seller. Cheap 210s are scarce, demand is very strong for 210s.

I met the seller and saw the gun, which had a few issues : some wear, some rough machining marks, non original barrel (different number), mag grip and sights.

On the plus side, the adjustable sights cost 250.- new, the sport wooden grips 120.- and the mag is a high polished early one and they cost more too.







I bought it for CHF 900 and decided to get it hard chromed (satin) at a local specialist. And here is the result :
















I am very happy with the result

And it still shoots like a P210 should (25 meters offhand)

Well that's a heck of a makeover! I've always been interested in these, but have never had the opportunity to even pick one up and hold it. Y'all really do have some good stuff over there!

Sig is making several p210 models in the USA but they made design changes 😡 to the mag release to make it a push button. I wish they had just left it as it was.

Beautiful pistol. When I saw the first pics I thought it would be a perfect candidate for a refinish, it came out great!

I keep forgetting there are gun culture outside of the US. Being where you are couldn't you send it to Sig?
For what, I already have several original blued 210s, and I bought this one specifically for this hard chrome project



And the Swiss Sig firearms division doesn’t exist anymore, they sold it to Germans and it’s now named Swiss Arms
