I just picked one of these up. $575.00 with night sights and 3-15rnd mags. I took it out back fired a few rounds into the wood pile. Seems to shoot really smooth. The frame was made in Germany, I was curious if anyone knows how to figure manufacture dates?

Ser# U657 XXX

The Mags have dates of 09/14/94 but I dont think the gun is that old....

Nice!
There should be a pair of letters stamped under the barrel on the bottom of the slide, post them and we can tell you what year it was made.

Also, the 1994 on the magazines simply states the date that the restriction (clinton ban) started. It may be a LE gun since it has 3 mags, if it came that way. The ban ended in 2004, but I think they were still making stamped carbon steel slides in '04.

yeah, I dont think its that old (mag date) either, there are no markings underneath on the slide.

According to here P226 Serial Number List


looks like its may be around 2001

-U623-9XX-KK-1999
-U658-6XX-AC-2002
But what is weird is I only have "U657-XXX" nothing else.
