SIG P226 Carbine and SP 2022 Carbine

SIG has done what Glock should have done many years ago: partner with a firm like CAA and produce official branded carbine versions of their pistol line. The SIG P226 Carbine and SP 2022 Carbine as simply their respective pistol converted to a carbine with a CAA Pistol Carbine Kit.

Each carbine feature a side folding stock and plenty of picatinny rails.

These are almost certainly going to be limited to the European market.

On a side note, I have used a Glock in a CAA Carbine Kit and it was a joy to shoot. I will blog about it soon.

[ Many thanks to Gregor for emailing me the photos and info. ]

    Has anyone found any more information regarding the SP2022 Carbine Kit? Was the above photo taken at a concept show or has it actually been manufactured and is in circulation? I can not find it anywhere but in this post. The Sig site does not have it under products. CAA, Fab Defense, etc. only have the Glock versions.

    If anyone has more information regarding this specific carbine, SP2022, please post.

    Thanks!

    Anyone know if this will be offered for the SIG P229? i know that the only difference between the 226 and the 229 is the length of the slide. As I understand it the length of the actual barrel of the firarm isn't really a key factor due to the fact that the "barrel" of the carbine is over sized and the bullet doesn't actually travel inside that barrel, just the one of the actual weapon. If this is true on the SIG made models, like on Glock, then a 229 would fit the 226 carbine as well?
