P220-45-SSS. The frame is stainless and made in Germany (import-marked "DE") and the slide is stainless and made in America. German frames shipped separately to America are not proofed.

Some alloy frames have been made in America since at least the mid-1990s. Polymer frames are a mixed bag; the P250 is made in America, the SP2022 is made in Germany, and the earlier SP2009 was made in Switzerland. I have never seen a stainless frame that was not made in Germany.
