I don't know for sure, but the seller has no rating and the price at present seems low for this model. If I lived in CO and could do a face to face, I'd be interested even though the slide is powder coated and the rear sight changed.

Agree hard to know ; the serial number starts with PPC , but there is no PPC stamped on the right side .

Well, it bears a resemblance to a 5903 SSV due to the duotone but as for PPC I can't really say.

Looks like a 3566TSW Limited. That rear sight is really large, never seen one like that. Maybe a prototype.

Nope, it's a typical PPC-9 5" and the auction winner got a terrific gun. The original sight is the Aristocrat with the three-preset settings but the seller had swapped that out with a similar sight in hopes of meeting the rules of a particular competition. The black color was done after the fact.

The "value" of the pistol where collecting is concerned is quite suspect but as a shooter, the buyer got himself a very nice deal on a whale of a handgun.
