The SIG SAUER P226 Elite Dark Handgun
In the top-class of production pistols, the SIG SAUER® P226® is considered as an American first line of defense. Designed specifically for the United States Army and carried by the U.S. Navy SEALs, Texas Rangers and many other elite military and law enforcement professionals, the SIG P226 proved its mettle and then some with reliability, durability, and accuracy. This P226 handgun from SIG set the standard for all other combat handguns to be measured with. In order for a new design to replace the 1911, this pistol was designed as SIGs entrant in the military trials.
In the heat of combat, at the shooting range, or for home-defense, the SIG SAUER P226 full-sized handgun is a force to be reckoned with. With an included integral accessory rail, the SIG SAUER P226 is a Double-Action/Single-Action (DA/SA) pistol. There is also a Single-Action Only (SAO) model available too. With exceptional ergonomics and balance, the P226 pistol is very easy to handle. The three calibers of 9mm, .357 SIG or .40 S&W and a longer barrel yields for better accuracy and ballistic performance.
The new SIG SAUER P226® Elite Dark handgun is the newest edition to the P226 Elite series and features an ergonomic beavertail grip, front strap checkering, front cocking serrations, SIGLITE® Adjustable Combat Night Sights, custom aluminum grips (which may differ from image shown) and the new Short-Reset Trigger system (SRT™). SIG SAUER engineers designed the SRT™ to provide the shooter the same great safety and smooth action of the SIG Double-Action/Single-Action (DA/SA) with a comfortable reset that is 60% shorter for faster trigger return and surgical control during high speed shooting. The P226 Elite Dark from SIG is available in 9mm, .357 SIG or .40 S&W.
***Due to customer response, SIG SAUER will no longer engrave the SIG SAUER in white on the aluminum grips. SIG SAUER will update the images on the SIG SAUER manufacturer website when the guns arrive.
