Swiss SIG P49 P210, Military, Transitional, Complete Rig
VG original finish that equally applies to the frontstrap. Crisp grips that likely came from later production as Transitional pistols had panels with separable eschuteons. Bright bore with strong rifling and perfect manual mechanics. VG magazines and holster that has moderate wear as one might expect from a pistol that has seen service. Supple leather. No discernible repairs. A scarce Military P49 Transitional rig, easily upgradable, that would enhance any collection. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
