The older guns did have stamped slides, but that wouldn't keep from purchasing an older Sig-Sauer pistol for a good price. They make quality firearms, and just because production methods of changed/improved doesn't mean the older guns are not quality pieces.
To help alleviate any concern, you might request to have the gun inspected by an experienced gunsmith who can check the gun for problems.
