I have one with the U.S. release, came in a gray plastic case. Fun gun to shoot.

That would be a Tysons' Corner gun. Primarily a supplier to the military and law enforcement back then. Not as much of a civilian company at that time. Does it have the spur type hammer? No hammer return spring?

That is a beauty!

The first Sig I bought back in 1991 was a Tyson's Corner import with the date code JG aka 1986. It is a P226 two tone and came with three electroless nickel 15 round magazines. It had been ordered by a LEO who never picked it up. It sat in the dealer's stockroom for almost six years forgotten. I grabbed it right after it was put in the display case. Still have it 22 years later and I put 100 rounds through it one week ago today. Still shoots like a new gun after all these years.....

And so it goes.
