At today’s pre-Industry Day at the Range, Standard Manufacturing unveiled their newest SG9 pistol. This new striker-fired offering comes in both a regular and optics-ready version. Their president was kind enough to show us the newest pistol first.
[SHOT 2022] New SG9 Pistol from Standard ManufacturingBoth the pistols featured fully ambidextrous controls, and feature an ambi safety lever on each side. Rather than using a stamped steel chassis, the SG9 is built around a solid block of 4140 steel. This is then surrounded by a glass-reinforced polymer frame that features an interchangeable backstrap for various hand sizes. The slide and barrel are also machined from 4140 stainless steel in an effort to make the pistol more accurate and robust. Each pistol was chambered in 9mm and featured an 18+1 capacity using Caracal USA 9mm magazines. Takedown of the SG9 is accomplished by clearing the weapon, discharging the striker, and then pushing down on one of the two takedown levers on either side of the trigger guard. From there the slide slides forward and off the pistol for easy disassembly and cleaning. The optics-ready version of the pistol was shown with a SIG Romeo Zero footprint, and both pistols have window cuts on top of the slide. The SG9 is slated to be released by Standard Manufacturing within the next three months. The optics-ready version comes with an MSRP of $749, and the non-optics-ready version comes in with an MSRP of $649. I look forward to putting some rounds through these pistols tomorrow. A special thank you to Louis from Standard Manufacturing for the first look.
