I imagine this short video peaked your curiosity as much as it did mine the first time I saw it! A few weeks ago I was contacted by the SIG rep and asked if I would like to take part in the Legion introduction. Of course I had no idea what “Legion” was but it sounded like something above and beyond a single new gun announcement. Well, it was certainly a lot more it was an entire new line of not only guns of all types but other new SIG products like knives, pistols, gun cases, rifles and other products not yet announced. The Legion Series is more than just products. The Legion is also intended to be a group of users who use their gear in hard use situations and demand more than the standard gear. Let me have SIG take over in explaining the idea and purpose behind the Legion!

From SIG Sauer:

SIG SAUER® Introduces Legion SeriesTM Featuring Exclusive Firearms, Programs NEWINGTON, N.H. (October 6, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer of complete weapon systems, is now inviting professional users worldwide to become part of the new Legion SeriesTM.

By joining its ranks, Legion members will receive access to a new line of enhanced products from SIG SAUER®, developed with the input of the most elite professionals from around the world. These products have been built to meet and exceed the demands of the elite. These are serious tools, for serious users.

The Legion is also a community, a brotherhood of like-minded individuals who push themselves and their gear to the limits. Legion members will receive exclusive product offerings and information from SIG, gain access to premium accessories built specially for the Legion, and find lifestyle items representing their membership in the Legion.
The Legion name has roots reaching back to the great Roman armies, and to this day designates elite membership among the world’s military and professional communities.
“We have worked with elite SIG users for years as we have developed the Legion,” said Jeff Creamer, Executive Director and General Merchandise Manager for SIG SAUER, Inc. “We wanted to know what custom features professionals were seeking as factory enhancements. The result is a line of high performance firearms and accessories that deliver not only what elite users need, but what they want.”

After customers purchase a Legion product, they simply call SIG SAUER with their serial number to register the product. SIG will then send a complimentary custom Thermo-Mold case, cut for their specific firearm and featuring a slot for their challenge coin matched to that firearm.

The new Legion member will also receive a web account login, which unlocks the Legion portion of the SIG website. Here Legion members can learn more about the privileges of being a member of the Legion and find exclusive products expressly designed for them. Partnering with companies like Surefire®, Peltor®, Blackpoint Tactical® and others, members can purchase top-of-the-line accessories made exclusively as part of the Legion Series.

SIG SAUER has also partnered with some of the finest blade makers in the industry to offer Legion-specific knives available only to members. To name just a few, Emerson Knives®, Rick Hinderer, Daniel Winkler, Duane Dwyer of Duane Dwyer Customs and Strider Knives®, and Quartermaster Knives® are designing and building these exclusive offerings specifically for the Legion.

Additional lifestyle accessories from premier manufacturers such as Gramm Works® humidors and Key-Bar® products will also be exclusives to the Legion base.
Legion members will have exclusive access to SIG SAUER product news and training tips from the SIG SAUER AcademySM faculty. They will also be among the first to see new Legion products as they come available.

The Legion will launch with the two most prevalent SIG SAUER handguns in use within the professional community. The P226® and P229® have served countless military units and law enforcement agencies for decades. These trusted firearms are counted on day in and day out to protect those who protect our freedoms.

Both models will be finished in a proprietary Legion gray PVD coating, custom G-10 grips with a Legion medallion, the new SIG SAUER Electro-Optics X-RAY3TM high visibility day/night sights, and will ship with three magazines.

The P226 and P229 in DA/SA include a reduced and contoured Elite beavertail, which allows for a higher grip, but a reduced profile, to eliminate printing while carrying concealed. More aggressive front strap checkering and additional checkering under the trigger guard enhance the grip, even in adverse situations. A high undercut has been machined behind the trigger guard, allowing for a higher grip and greater control. Front cocking serrations provide greater purchase for cycling the action, clearing the firearm, or conducting status checks. The P226 and P229 DA/SA guns will first be available in 9mm, followed by .40 and .357SIG.

The DA/SA also features low profile decocking and slide catch levers to reduce the risk of snagging. An enhanced polished action with the SRTTM (Short-Reset Trigger) is augmented with a Grayguns, Inc., Intermediate Adjustable Trigger. In addition, a solid steel guide rod adds weight where it matters most. These enhancements maximize the user’s accuracy potential, while increasing their split times between shots.

The P226 SAO variant brings the same feature set to the table in a single-action only package. The addition of the SIG Master Shop Super Match Flat Trigger provides exceptional feel and consistent trigger pull
regardless of finger placement. Additionally, the Legion SAO debuts the new single action SRT (short reset trigger) and is available in 9mm. The P226 SAO is projected to begin shipping in November.

I think this press release does a much better job of explaining the Legion Series and the ideas behind it than I could. To begin with SIG has chosen to start this program with the release of a customized Legion P-226 and P-229. Two weeks ago I received the Legion P-229 along with it’s unique hard case with the Legion logo molded into the top as well as a SIG Black Point single mag carrier and Black Point holster.

The Legion P-229 I received has an all gray PVD finish with all the upgrades mentioned in the press release. Just to run these changes down again. The top of the slide has Legion engraved into the slide just in front of the rear sight. SIG has also created a new set of sights for this series from what they call the electro optics division. So, these are SIG designed sights with two small tritium dots in the rear sight and a slightly larger tritium front sight encircled by a bright green material which shows very well during the day and night. This makes for a nice sight picture and one easily lined up quickly. The beavertail is similar to the one on the Elite series but trimmed down and reshaped to allow for a higher grip.

There is also an undercut at the bottom rear of the trigger guard which combined with the undercut beavertail does indeed allow a higher grip which is something SIG owners have been wanting for a long time. The front strap checkering is more aggressive than the usual P series pistol. SIG has also added additional checkering along the front and bottom of the trigger guard. The controls are also modified by making them slightly smaller with a checkered finish which gives the user a better purchase on the slide release and de-cocker. Something I really like about the Legion 229 is the G-10 grips with the logo medallion inlaid. Some thought was put into the grip with areas with a more aggressive finish providing a very secure grip.

This holster is a combination of kydex and leather. Nothing new with that combination but the way the holster is designed the holster forms around your hip keeping the pistol in close providing easier concealment.

The action has also been tuned/smoothed with a short reset trigger standard on this model. One trigger is from Grayguns and is fully adjustable. This is the flat trigger on the Legion P-226.

I mentioned the Legion hard case being unique. While the shell will protect the pistol and contents the case has some give to it and closes with a heavy zipper. The way the case is designed it’s much easier to carry around being about 30% as thick as the usual hard shell case. It should fit well in a range bag and leave room for a good deal of other gear because of it’s thin profile.

On to the range:

I’ve taken this 229 out to the range numerous times since it arrived and it has been flawless. No malfunctions of any kind after several hundred rounds of not only ball ammo but SIG JHP ammo.

Accuracy was excellent not only because a SIG P series is just an accurate pistol but this one shined because of the trigger work, higher grip and those X-RayT3 sights. With these changes SIG has also made this a natural pointer. Standing unsupported at 15 yards I was able to draw and fire a full magazine by just looking over the top of the slide in the old instinctive shooting style and hitting the 1/3 size IDPA steel target. All 15 rounds struck the target! I was quite honestly surprised since in the past that first round from my 226 fired double action has always gone high unless I slow down. If you ever had trouble with the change from DA to SA this one will probably cure that. The trigger is really well done.

I also backed up to 25 yards to do some slow fire and was able to keep my groups just under two inches if I did my part. One thing I mentioned that I can take it or leave it is the full length guide rod. It’s purpose is to add weight and make follow up shots faster. I didn’t notice any difference but then I’ve shot SIG pistols a lot.

To sum things up I really like what SIG has done with this pistol and I plan on buying it and believe me I don’t buy many guns I test. I think any reader that tries the Legion 229 will be hooked just like I have been. MSRP should be right at $1300.

When a buyer registers their Legion pistol they are mailed the hard case and enrolled in the “Legion”. The Legion website should be live shortly. www.legionseries.com

I really look forward to testing the Legion 226 as well as some of the other guns that will be introduced in this series. There will be rifles as well as other handguns so stand by for more to come.

  • Is the legion chevron logo supposed to be kind of like a greek lambda like those used by the Spartans or Lacedaemon (Λακεδαίμων)

    • No Roman Legions

      • why would you use a greek lambda for a roman (latin) legion? If you wanted to have a symbol for a roman legion, you would use SPQR

        • No idea—- I haven’t done any research yet to see if that was used by the Roman Legion as well.

          • ostiariusalpha

            It wasn’t. The Romans used animal emblems and their legion number on their standards. You could make a case for one of the historic Legio V, but they were more famous for getting massacred to the last man. Twice.

          • iksnilol

            Well, it’s fitting. Your wallet will get slaugthered to the last man if you go with the brand 😉

        • DR.NUMBERS

          That was one of my thoughts as well. In any case, the whole ‘lifestyle’ marketing approach is gimmicky and quite cringe-worthy. Maybe I’m just not ready to push myself and my gear to the limit and join the brotherhood of serious elite tactical users known as ‘the Legion’.

        • floppyscience

          I thought that too. Tried looking up if Romans ever used a similar symbol and can’t find anything.

          Reminds me of that “Cold War” edition of the CZ 75 with all the Cyrillic text on it. “It doesn’t have to make sense, it looks cool and people will but it.”

      • JK

        Is that like “No Bone Movies”?

    • Mr. Kill

      No it means you are a PFC.

      • Army127

        Now that was F’ing Funny!!! But looking at it from a combat standpoint, it’s a lot of gun for your money, especially with all the extras. Yes it had a logo but so does every other brand nowadays! If it holds up to the abuse that I can put it through, which I have no doubt it will, because I have carried my Sig P228 in combat or during contract missions for 20 years now with a return to Sig for a complete check and rebuild a couple of years ago. She works like a brand new gun again! So you chair masters can knock Sig Sauer all you want but they make some of the best weapons available today and even though I have to put up with the goofy Legion logo I will buy one as soon as I can. Again I am not some cheesy weekend mall sissy or once a year range amateur. I will actually use this stuff in the real world and I am sure it will kick a*s.

  • Steve

    So will these series replace the usual MIM parts with forged?

    • I haven’t gotten any information as to the materials used with the exception of the usual metals in the slide and frame.

    • Bruce

      I think it’s time to stop worrying about MIM parts. My P226 just crested 7000 rounds after many years of playing USPSA games. Changed the recoil spring, not because I was having problems but because it had reached the recommended change interval. I haven’t had any problems at all. MIM used to be a big deal, now it’s just another normal industrial process.

      • I agree with you on that. It’s almost become a non issue with the exception of MIM parts in 1911’s. Still the new stuff seems to hold up well.
        I’m not worried about it with this SIG.

        • Bruce

          I don’t have nearly enough rounds through my Sig 1911 to have an informed opinion on it’s use in 1911s. When that one reaches a real number, I’ll form an opinion then.

          • I’ve never had a problem with any SIG I’ve owned and that includes the traditional 1911 as well as the SIG version.
            It just seems I hear more 1911 owners griping about it.

      • AJ187

        I agree with you, Bruce. I’m not concerned about MIM parts in any of my guns after using them extensively. Just another way to sell overpriced guns.

      • Josh carter

        Funny thing is, people don’t even realize that pretty much every GEAR made today is MIM. Transmission gears, rear end gears, and many other applications. If you drive a car, you depend on MIM. Get over it.

      • Steve

        Actually, I typically don’t worry about MIM parts, as most makers that haven’t had Ron Cohen as CEO generally haven’t had problems with it. If it truely isn’t a problem for Sig with MIM, then why is it the pistols they make for US government contracts don’t contain any?

        Wilson Combat, for instance was one of the first to use MIM. The parts they made never had any issues with their parts. They quit making them do to customers worrying about it due to the issues Kimber and Sig had.

        • StickShift

          “If it truely isn’t a problem for Sig with MIM, then why is it the pistols they make for US government contracts don’t contain any?”

          Probably because of milspec. The government defined the material specifications at some point in the past, probably when SIG was still forging the small bits, and locked the design. For SIG to request an Engineering Change is probably a lot time, testing, paperwork, and money. It’s probably easier to keep making small batches of forged parts for government contracts (and passing the costs along to the taxpayer) than go through the hassle of changing the specifications.

  • mrmeaty

    oh brother, this certainly ups the cringe factor for SIG.

    • Yimmy

      I’m a long time Sigaholic fan and own many of them, but these gimmicky models certainly make me wonder who put the 8th grade kid in charge.

      • Steve

        Greedy share holders who brought in the current CEO to increase profit margins.

      • Matt Grimes

        Well, since a lot of old farts are on fixed incomes or stuck in their ways, a company needs to look at the current up and comers 25-40 yr olds who are all gamers and like to customize stuff. Explanation enough Einstein?

  • Chase

    I’m pretty sure the folding knife is Legion series but that fixed blade is a Daniel Winkler. Those babies cost as much as the guns.

    • Dave

      The folder is just a cheap Hinderer XM18

      • Matt

        Well if $500 is cheap to you then throw some money my way 🙂

  • Don Ward

    Nice write up Phil. I’m not sure if I’m cut out for Sig’s Legion. Those are some attractive toys.

    The only legion I care about at the moment is the Seahawk’s Legion of Boom.

    • Bruce

      Rough start then. Hope it goes better.

    • john huscio

      “Legion of illegal ball slaps”

      • Don Ward

        Hehehehe. Now, now. If Megatron had just held the ball, a meaningless bat out of the endzone on a play that was over wouldn’t have mattered.

        • Geez that’s all I’ve been hearing in the sports coverage!

        • john huscio

          Just when I think they’ve learned to lose in all the most excruciating ways…..they one up me….damn lions……haven’t gotten over the playoff screwjob in Dallas yet….

    • LOL— Seahawks have some good fans:-) Thanks Don I try to do the best I can!

      • Katie A

        Yes, yes they do (She says from her Legion of Boom collection room).

  • datimes

    I’m retired after 37 years as a police officer and no longer part of a “community, a brotherhood of like-minded individuals who push themselves and their gear to the limits”. Does this mean I can’t buy one?

    I like the guns, they can keep the rest.

    Piqued.

    • Pastor Dan

      Saw that. Spelling has lost its’ charm. Grammar, too. Whatever auto-correct will plug in will be normal, and repurposed for what I REALLY meant.

      • Katie A

        Punctuation, too. “Its”… Come on, guys, you’re missing the forest for the trees.

        • MR

          No, no, it’s totally cool, it’s a colloquialism.

  • MrApple

    Pretty pistol… I’ll stick with my Glock.

  • Nimrod

    I never was as high speed low drag operation, maybe just medium speed, medium drag one cuz I never got the tatts. These days I am a member of a exclusive “legion.” Its called the “Legion of the Lazy Boy Operators”. Kind of like couch potatoes but way cooler since we kick back in our Lazy Boys and surf the world wide web looking at gun blogs with orange Cheetos stained fingers on wireless keyboards. I gotta get one of them new Sigs so that when I go on my annual trip to the range I can be like all the cool kids.

  • Anomanom

    Am, i the only one who feels like this is just really pretentious. I mean upgraded sights and a factory trigger job are nice and all but it feels like trying too hard.

    • ExurbanKevin

      I’ll admit that was my first thought, but at second glance, what they’re doing here is launching a premium lifestyle brand based around a tactical firearm, kinda liked what Harley did with bikes 20 years ago. Browning has had TREMENDOUS success extending their brand into non-gun accessories, it’ll be interesting to see if others (coughcoughGLOCK) follow down a similar path.

      • TCBA_Joe

        It’s interesting for sure. Don’t care about the exclusive logo swag, but the actual gun and its features are interesting. I really like the frame work features and the design aesthetics are attractive. It’ll be interesting to see how they incorporate this into further “premium” refinement of the P320 and MCX as well.

        Overall, branding aside, I like it.

      • floppyscience

        So “Legion” is going to become the tacticool “Buck Mark”?

      • Pastor Dan

        Spongebob wears Glock apparel, hence the Squarepants moniker.

      • The gun is a great value for what you’re getting. Try putting it together on your own and having the work done. And they’ve just made a “members” club basically for Sig firearms. Is it a marketing ploy? Of course. Is it pretentious and ridiculous? Not really. Why can a gun manufacturer not do the same stuff other people are doing?

        They haven’t sacrificed their quality to do so, quite the opposite it would seem. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it… Or if you want your 229 to match your MCX, and you want to rock a Legion tshirt too, why not? Lol.

  • Weaponized_Hotdog

    This is what Sig needs, more SKU’s……

  • Nathan Means

    I feel like more tactifools will buy these. There will be a few who use it right but most people will just use it as a fancy carry/conversation pistol.

    • MR

      Tacticoolios?

    • Army127

      I am going to have to disagree with you on that one. Most of the tactifools won’t have enough money to buy one of these guns which is one reason for the pricing. Also there is nothing wrong with using the 229 as a carry gun since that’s what it’s made for! Again I will buy one and see how it shoots against my 20 year old 228 that I hade rebuilt a few years ago with the SRT trigger and night sights, a complete new spring set, and a nice deep clean. She is as good as new and as always has been in my holster where ever I go in the world! I like all of the upgrades to the new gun and with everything that has been done you will get a lot of gun for your money, not for collecting but for using everyday in the field and beating the crap out of it, with nothing stopping the 228 yet thanks!

          I dislodged half my jaw once because of yawning. Couldn’t close my mouth properly for about a week or something.

            I wouldn’t really call it expertise. Isn’t it kinda embarassing, though? I mean, I hurt myself by yawning. That’s like clumsiness level 99.

            But yeah, yawning is dangerous. Don’t be too tired xD

          • noob

            and yawning is contagious. Ever looked at a cat and yawned? it’s like mind control, after they yawn they look all embarrassed. It’s awesome.

    I’m much more interested in this than some truck-box tread chrome 238 or rainbow titanium finished anything: imagine, actual functional (possible) improvements. And just when I was going to go to a 320….

    PLEASE let it be a 1913 Pic rail, and not the proprietary SIG rail.

    • MR

      When are the MLOK/Keymod versions coming out?

  • John

    MSRP is $1428. Same as the P226 Stainless Elite.

    • Just using the price I was given several weeks ago.

      • MR

        Does the MSRP have anything to do with reality on these? Or do they do like Ruger, and just pull an astronomical number out of… thin air.

  • Dan Atwater

    All that “lifestyle” stuff is just noise to me, but the pistols themselves are definitely worthwhile IMO. Grayguns trigger, better sights, and low profile slide stop alone make it worth the asking price. If they do an M11A1 in this setup (or whatever they feel like calling a non-railed 229) I will probably buy one.

  • john huscio

    Another marketing gimmick, but at least it sounds like the “legion” p229 is the real deal…..just wish they would’ve made a model without the rail……

    • John Lockwood

      Check out the M11-A1 for an unrailed model.

  • tazman66gt

    Sorry, to me it just looks like one more for the SIG collectors, and any time a company starts throwing around buzzwords like “lifestyle” then you know its collector grade crap.

  • Not hardly—-

    • OSk

      You mean “hardly.” Unless you meant the double negative.

      • Katie A

        Actually, “not hardly” is considered fine by writers due to its slang use, as long as it’s used in the proper context. It’s a colloquiallism which grants it a certain level of immunity (Hey, two can play at the grammar Nazi game).

        • OSk

          Which writers? It maybe colloquialism, but it is also grammatically incorrect. I wrote for a major newspaper for a while. My former editor would not ever tolerate such ignorance of basic grammar.

    • MR

      So, most definitely? Makes more sense than that “Roman” thing.

  • John Lockwood

    If you already own a SIG Classic series pistol, I highly recommend Trijicon HD night sites. Add SIG E2 grips or G-10 panels from the SIG Extreme Series and SRT if you like fast followup shots.

  • USMC03Vet

    So If I buy this gun package I’m now an elite warrior?

    • floppyscience

      Only if you register online and then buy the Legion™ billet ash tray.

  • MR

    That’s what I was thinking. Are all the pieces of gear going to cast themselves into the nearest mall fountain?

  • BigFED

    Another pistol from a great maker that, in most cases, far exceeds the shooting abilities of the average owner/shooter!!! Started shooting when I was 10, I’m in my early 70’s now and probably a slightly better than average shooter (I’m not a slouch either). I have a wide variety of firearms and almost all of my guns (rifles, handguns and shotguns) are capable of far better accuracy than I can deliver.

    My axiom is “There are those that CAN shoot no matter how bad the gun and there are those that CAN’T shoot no matter how good the gun!!!

  • Yimmy

    Why can’t Sig just make the upgraded triggers and sights on their standard models? For the price they’re commanding these days, I have to wonder how they’re able to sell anything without anything extra?

    I’ve owned a sig from ’96 and onwards with many models. These days I scratch my head at the stuff they’re coming out with. Sig used to be a serious no nonsense firearms company, now they’re Hollywood MTV bling.

  • floppyscience

    Okay, so I’m liking the trigger, sights, grip, relief cut, checkering, and low-profile controls. I’d gladly buy a pistol with those things.

    Kinda lost me on the “Legion” club though. Why couldn’t this just have been a new line? Like the “Elite” models?

  • BigFED

    I’m a big fan of the DAK option (if it is still available). I do not like “transition” pistols (DA first, SA following) I converted my 229 and it is one of my favorite carry guns, but the P-320 has taken over as my EDC! Wonder if this option will be available? Not that I need another safe queen!

  • Jack Burton

    It may be gimmicky and pandering to the Tactical Timmy crowd, but you’ve gotta admit it’s a really nice looking pistol(for once).

  • janklow

    SIG, could you maybe just sell me some P226s and P228s at a respectable price instead of whatever is going on with this Legion thing?
    thanks,

  • jng1226

    If you don’t like the marketing, blame Recoil, Ballistic and other “tactical” magazines for making a “lifestyle” out of tactical weapons. On the other hand, be happy that this lifestyle is attracting the 18-24 crowd and making gun-nuts out of them. Their votes will be needed to counter the anti-gun majority in that age group that don’t believe in the 2nd Amendment nor remember all the that has come before to keep the freedoms we “old hands” cherish so deeply. Regarding the guns, I do like the functional features of low-profile controls and higher grip holds with re-contoured beavertail and undercut trigger guard. As an old 1911 shooter I can never get my P226 TACOPS to lock back on an empty mag.

    • Katie A

      This ^^^ Thank you!

    • Amen. Agree on all fronts.

      Additionally, while I’m not ready to pay a premium to join the Legion lifestyle, I appreciate a few upgrades and improved design asthetics. Just because my guns are tools doesn’t mean I can get a little toy out of them as well. 🙂

    I can’t imagine that comes with a Rick Hinderer knife for just $1,300.

    • Nope the knife is just part of the product line. The knife is for sale as a separate item.

    Do you realize calling their styling gimmicky ie. ridiculous, has nothing to do with the free market enterprises? Maybe you should re-read what is written before you hurt yourself with an aneurysm calling out all commies.

      It has everything do with free market enterprise. It’s for the desire to sell and market goods that these gimmicks exist.

      Duh.
