The SIG SAUER P226 Elite Stainless 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 Stainless is the next generation P226 and features an ergonomic beavertail grip, front cocking serrations, front strap checkering, custom wood grips and the new Short-Reset Trigger or SRT™. SIG engineers designed the SRT to provide you the same great safety and smooth action of the SIG DA/SA (Double-Action/Single-Action) with a comfortable reset that is 60% shorter for faster trigger return and surgical control during high speed shooting. The P226 Elite is available in 9mm, or .40 S&W.
