I know...right? I was actually confused at first. I am still trying to figure this out. But think I can buy one this year and another in January. Only one per year.
Are you looking for a CMP EIC pistol or NRA CF gun?On the Sig web page there is a P210 Target. How good of a value is this gun for $900? Not looking to “waste” money, but would love a nice, accurate SA bullseye gun. Also, what mods are there for this gun? Or is it as good as it gets out of the box?
Walther P88 is a great pistol, but there are better options for precision pistol. I would go with an XD(M) w/a refit barrel or M9 with adjustable sights over a Walther P88. Most P88s won’t hold the X-Ring at 50 yards, and often not the 10 ring. Example 25 meter factory test target to show factory performance, which isn’t spectacular.Accuracy standard for the Swiss made P210 was 5 rounds in a 2" circle at 50 meters. That was for a production firearm, not some custom job from a high-dollar 'smith. Not certain who makes another 9mm with near that accuracy out of the box except the Walther P88. And that one is only close.
These need nothing out of the box. They can't be upgraded to any better than they already are. I can't speak to the accuracy of American made SIG's but I know the Swiss made examples are literal tack drivers.
The Swiss were good as is, truly one of the greatest combat pistols ever created, but that doesn't translate to the German and American. The Swiss target products with Hammerli involvement were effectively custom products by today's standards, like the Hammerli 208/208S, truly amazing firearms. Small parts are now MIM, no longer hand fit, design of the trigger changed, and lockup modified (for the worse) as a cost cutting measure from the original browning to the Sig style, etc. The test target is now at 25m vice 50m however the groups are are about the same size. Several test targets I saw would barely hold the 10 ring and definitely not X, which means that you are giving up points before you start the match. Small sample size. Regardless, with a trigger from the factory often below the CMP EIC minimum and a long take-up it can be tough to setup initially. Other issues are the lack of rail, dissimilar grip angle (to a 1911), low quality internal parts (MIM), which can't be readily replaced with tool steel and therefore many Bullseye Gunsmiths won't work on them. For those and other reasons, I don't advise Bullseye shooters to pick up a P210. Head to Camp Perry for Pistol Nationals, Interservice or Cardinal and and so far I've seen zero P-210s on the line for the High Master shooters, I've also not seen one on the line with any professional/military shooting team. More importantly, look at national/international precision pistol titles won with a P210 since its inception, so far I have found none.The accuracy of the American 210 is every bit as good as the Swiss.
