The concealed carry movement isn’t slowing down, and neither is SIG Sauer’s Exeter, NH plant–they’re pumping out a new concealed carry pistol for 2012, the SIG P224.  In a nutshell, Sig pretty much cut off an inch from the front and the grip of their P226; in fact, that’s exactly what they did to prototype the idea.  The result is a sub-compact pistol that’s in between the size of a P226 and a P290.

Sig P224 Stainless

Any SIG owner, or frequent shooter of SIG’s P226 or P229 will be instantly familiar with the operation and features of the SIG P224.  The P224 will accept newer P229 magazines which will allow owners to carry a full capacity magazine as a spare, which a lot of concealed carry practitioners like to do. Sig’s new sub-compact will also feature full size SIGLITE night sights and a Double-Action-Only trigger.  Other common features include an overall length of 6.7″, overall height of 4.5″, overall width of 1.3″, a 3.5″ barrel length, and it weighs 24.5 ounces.  The SIG SAUER P224 will be available in 9mm, .40, and .357 SIG.  Suggested retail of the P224 is between $1,100-$1,200 depending on the model.

SIG will be putting out 4 different versions of the P224:

  • The SIG Anti-Snag (SAS) model features a de-horned slide and frame, and the new
    ergonomically enhanced one-piece grip. SIGLITE Night Sights will be standard in the Nitron®
    coated slide. The short-reset trigger (SRT) will be available in the DA/SA version.
  • A Nickel model will sport a black hard coat anodize frame as a contrast to the nickel slide and
    controls. Custom Hogue® G-10 grips and SIGLITE Night Sights round out this package.
  • As part of the Extreme family of handguns, the P224 will feature the distinctive black and grey
    Hogue Piranha grips, SIGLITE Night Sights and the SRT (in the DA/SA version).
  • The P224 Equinox® features the same two-tone accented Nitron slide treatment as the rest of the
    popular Equinox series. A Tru-Glo® fiber optic front sight is paired with a SIGLITE Night Sight in
    the rear. Nickel controls and Hogue black diamondwood grips make the P224 Equinox as striking
    as it is reliable.

See the video below for a quick look at the P224 at SHOT SHOW, along with some footage of me shooting it at the Media Day Range.

Sig Sauer 1911 Fastback Nightmare

Check out Sig’s latest 1911, the Fastback Nightmare.  Sig has been producing a bunch of different 1911s this year from the 1911 TACOPS, the 1911 TACPAC, the Scorpion and now the Fastback Nightmare.  What makes the Fastback Nightmare different is that it features a rounded mainspring housing similar to the Kimber Super Carry.  Other features of the Sig 1911 Fastback Nightmare are low profile night sights and some custom double diamond G10 grips.  No word on price yet but my estimate would be from the $1100-1300 range.

Big thanks to SigSauerGuns.com for the specs and pics.

Sig Sauer P226 MK25

Sig MK25 Pics

Yesterday we told you that SIG SAUER is going to stop producing the SIG P226 Navy and replace it with the new Sig P226 MK 25.  Today, we have the pics and info of the new SIG P226 MK 25.

The new Sig P226 MK 25 is the exact (I mean exact) same pistol our US Navy SEAL teams are carrying today.  And when I say exact, I mean even the name.  Its rare to see the civilian version of a firearm and its military counterpart to share the exact same nomenclature, but in this rare case, the Navy gave Sig its blessing to do so.  This is not a commemorative pistol either, it is the exact same gun SIG SAUER  produces for its contract with the Navy.

So what are you, and the Navy SEALS getting with the P226?  Well it comes with 2 piece grips, night sights, a true 1913 picatinny rail and all of the internal parts have been phosphate coated.  Even the UID identification label is the same as the Navy’s.

I can see Fanboys (and girls) of SIG SAUER and the Navy SEALS jumping all over this (and I’m sure if you drew a Venn diagram of these two demographics, the two circles would lay on top of each other).  With as proven and reliable as the P226 is, and its use by our most elite soldiers, I’m sure Sig has a winner with this new P226 MK25–the question is, are they going to make enough of them and are you going to be able to find one?  Check below for pics and specs.

Sig Sauer Discontinuing the P226 Navy — Replaced by the P226 MK25

Sig Sauer will stop producing their Sig P226 Navy and will no longer offer the model after 2011.  Sig will be replacing the P226 Navy (NSWG) with the new P226 MK25.  The Sig P226 MK25 is identical to the pistol that’s carried by the U.S. Navy SEALs.  Expect about a $100 dollar increase over the P226 Navy which will bring the price for the MK25 to about $1,100.  Hopefully we’ll have full specs and pics of the Sig Sauer P226 MK25 very soon.

Sig 1911 Carry Scorpion

Sig Carry Scorpion Review

For those who wish to carry a Sig 1911 with a cool tactical tan coating, it may be a good idea to check out Sig’s new 1911 Carry Scorpion.  The new Sig Carry Scorpion is just like their full size 1911 Scorpion, but with a 4 inch barrel.  The Sig Sauer Scorpion reminds me of what I would imagine to be Sig’s counterpart to Kimber’s Desert Warrior; both are outstanding pistols.

Just like its full sized cousin, the Sig Sauer 1911 Carry Scorpion has a desert tan Cerakote finish, is chambered in .45 ACP, features Hogue G-10 grips and low Profile SIGLITE night sights.  The more CCW friendly Sig 1911 weighs 34.5 ounces unloaded, has a 4.2 inch barrel and an overall length of 7.7 inches.  Price should be right around the $1,000 mark at your local gun dealers.
