    Wow... maybe I should start buying more of them here and selling them in the US, this way I could buy more headphones! :gs1000smile:
    I would get into trouble for that, right?... haha

    All joking aside, I feel quite lucky to be in Switzerland just for this reason. The P210 is truly the Rolls Royce of pistols. Haven't found any 7.65 or 9mm that could beat it in pure accuracy.
    Pretty much every single pistol shooter in Switzerland has at least one P210. I know some people who have over 10 of them in different versions: army P210-2, german customs P210-4, heavy frame P210-5, P210-6, long slides, extended barrels, etc...

    It'll probably be very difficult to legally sell them here in the states. But shouldn't be impossible, I have an Italian police beretta 92. I've also seen lots of Polish makarovs here. Most likely you'll have to have an agreement with a FFL in the states, and let them take a cut. But probably still worth looking into.

    Sig re-issued the P210 Legend several years ago but discontinued them a few years back.

    However, there is at least one shop in the USA that has some original Swiss police P210's for sale, Top Gun Supply in Ohio: http://www.topgunsupply.com/firearms/used-guns.html The pistols are quite pricey, $2199 to $2999 depending on condition and whether it has its original box.

    I've shot several different Sig Sauer pistols and have always wanted to try to a P210. It certainly is a very intriguing and iconic firearm.

    I'd like to add that the P210 Legend was issued by Sig Sauer, and that they were made in Germany. Maybe I'm too patriotic, but to me, that's not a real P210.
    I had the chance to try one, and though they are very well made, they feel a bit harsh and metallic. Unlike the original Swiss made P210, which feels extremely smooth and perfectly adjusted.

    I really do hope you can try a P210 one day. It's a fantastic pistol. Nothing like the more recent Sig Sauers.

    Just got back from Target practice, and it is always great. I have owned numerous rifles and pistolas, but keep coming back to the time honored 22 LR. Currently I am using a new CZ 453 bolt action, and need some advice for a scope. Not as easy as it sounds because of my eyesight not being perfect. Right now a Bushnell sits atop the rifle, and it is 'ok'. I may require more than 3X9. Tried my friends Sweet 17 scope this morning and find it to be much preferable.

    long time shooter and competitor myself, I have had the same issue. First iron sights weren't as crisp as they used to be, then scopes started to creep up in magnification. For a 22 LR where shots are likely within 100 yards, a 3x9 with really good clarity is probably enough. The bad news is there is no such thing as a good cheap scope. I would look at the ones below and go somewhere you can try them side by side and see which is clearest for you. These run between $300 and $650 for a 3x9 and all have lifetime warranty if memory serves. I've used all and my personal preference is the Zeiss followed pretty closely by the Nikon.
