SIG SAUER® P226® Pistols, "3,000,000 Rounds. Consider It Basic Training."
As one of handguns in the highest class of production pistols, the SIG SAUER® P226® is to be considered as Americas first line of defense. The P226 pistol was designed specifically for the United States Army. 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 or even at the range, the P226 high- capacity, 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 ballistic performance and accuracy.
