The Texas Department of Public Safety is phasing out the current issued SIG Sauer pistols chambered for the .357 SIG cartridge. Smith & Wesson M&P9 pistols will replace the SIG handguns beginning with the academy class starting training this month. Troopers [Read More…]
For the new year, SIG Sauer will introduce a new caliber to the P290 RS line: the .380 ACP. Other than the caliber, the new .380 guns will be very similar to the existing 9mm P290 RS pistols: double-action-only, hammer fired and on a polymer frame. The guns will come [Read More…]
SIG Sauer displayed a suppressed P938 pistol at the 2013 SHOT Show, and there was some speculation as to whether this gun would be a shipping model. Sigsauerguns.com recently posted that a model number has popped up for a threaded P938 barrel (just the barrel, not a [Read More…]
If you are like me, you remember seeing the Sig SB15 a while back and thinking “hey they hacked the NFA”. Of course we all know how it is supposed to be used, but let us get real and look at this objectively: Sig made an “arm brace” and got ATF [Read More…]

Today at Media Day I got a sneak preview of Sig Sauer’s new rifle suppressor line. I tested one on a Sig516 in 5.56, and it was quiet! This one is non-detachable. More technical details to come later this week. Chris Cheng is History Channel’s Top Shot Season 4 [Read More…]

SIG have updated the SIG P290 which they introduced in 2010. The updated P290 RS has DAO Restrike capability, a reshaped beavertail frame, recontoured magazine release, reduced and reshaped slide release and finger-grip magazine floorplates. The changes are, at least in [Read More…]
I had hoped to fire the SIG 556R at Media Day but the queue to shoot it was too long and after waiting about 15 minutes I left the SIG range. It looks like a fun gun to shoot. SIG will be selling it this year with a camo finish.
SIG has scaled up their .380 ACP P238 platform to create the 9mm P938. The P938 is all metal, single action and has a 6+1 capacity. I did not have the opportunity to fire the gun but what I saw I liked.
