i pulled my p220 out of the safe. its the same design as the p226 just a different caliber. the guide rod is flush serial number only on the frame. very little rattle or slop. its got "45 auto" on the side of the chamber in sig's font. its got made in germany on one side of the slide and exeter nh the import location on the other. mine is a 1994ish model.
hope that helps
