If any of the above posters is interested, IM me your telephone # and I will gladly call them, fair enough.
Also, where did the somewhat exacting figure of 445 SIG 550's come from? First I ever heard that number. Does it also include 551 versions?
One more thing Shivan, my rifle is NOT a SIG 550. It is a PE 90. Similiar, but different. I can definitely tell you SIGARMS in any of their 3 different locations was not the importer. Further, they wont give you a serial number verification over the phone for any firearms they delivered. A military or other gov't agency inquiry may result in release of that info. But even a FFL holder wont get those records released. Oh, I know, I know. "My friends brother was at the SHOT Show a few years ago, and the SIG rep at the display once told him that...." doesnt cut the mustard for a hardcore SIG afficianado.
Hey, wanna question my rifles legitamacy a little more? Lets try this. I am going to post the serial number for a SIG 550 that I owned previously. I have spoken to the person who purchased it from me. They have been following this thread with much amusement along with a few others, and he expressly gave me permission to use this info to give further provinence to my rifle thats for sale. Here is the challenge. If anybody can answer the following questions about this rifle, I will mail them free of charge a SIG 550 sheet of literature for their effort. Ready?
Model: SIG 550-1
Tell me the following:
Who was the importer?
Who sold it to the importer?
What date was it imported?
Who the original purchaser was?
4 simple questions that some of the above posters seem to believe can be answered by obtaining the rifles serial number. Ready, set, go......
