SIG P210 .22lr conversion
I recently bought a .22 lr conversion for the SIG P210 here in Switzerland
I resisted for a long time since they are quite pricey. This one was $ 950, which is a lot for a slide, barrel, guide rod/spring and one magazine. You can buy a nice gun for this money, even almost a milsurp complete P210.
However I finally gave in, as the .22 lr complete pistol (the SIG P210-7) is close to $ 3í000. And since those conversions are not produced anymore it will likely hold its value.
Mine came without the box, which is a blue cardboard similar to the ones the pistols shipped in. This pic is from the internet
So hereís mine
The guide rod has the caliber on it
The barrel and slide are numbered
The barrel doesnít have locking lugs like the big brother, itís a simple blowback
The top rear of the slide has a depression / cut in front of the sight to reduce weight
And reliefs under the front sight
Hereís a side by side comparison with a regular slide for 7.65 and 9 mm parabellum
And here it is mounted on my P210-1. The fit and finish is excellent, as I expected from SIG of this period
I took it to the range and I was impressed with both the accuracy at 25 meters and the reliability with CCI Minimag.
However I went a second time with match ammo and the reliability was not as good, seems it did not have enough energy to operate the slide reliably.
But I am very happy with this acquisition. One of the shooting club I frequent dedicates Tuesday to .22 lr, so I think Iíll have a lot of fun with this.

Nice pick-up, that conversion kit looks good. I saw a similar P210 22LR conversion kit at a gunshow a few years back and it was at least $2k USD, if that's any consolation for what one of those cost here in the USA.
BTW, I really appreciate your picture taking skills of your impressive collection, they are always very nicely presented. The old tree trunk in the background adds to the visuals of that finely crafted Swiss pistol.
