Exceptional and all original SIG P49 with matte finish as typical for the later military pistol with holster, strap, spare magazine and original service record of the Swiss Military pilot who was issued this pistol.
Superb 99% original matte finish with negligible sharp edge wear and a few very minor scuffs. Crisp grips and near excellent magazines. Mirror bore and perfect manual mechanics. Near excellent brown holster, nicely marked, and shoulder strap. Complete service record nicely bound with a grey plastic cover. A super Swiss military P49 rig, the only one this cataloger has ever seen with its accompanying service record. A true historic time capsule. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
