SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade Of P320 Pistol

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

P320 pistol meets requirements for industry and government safety standards;
performance enhancements optimize function, safety, and reliability.

Newington, NH (August 8, 2017) – The P320 meets U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

The design of the SIG SAUER P320 overcomes the most significant safety concern in striker-fired pistols today: the practice of pressing the trigger for disassembly. This can be performed with a round in the chamber which has resulted in numerous incidents of property damage, physical injury, and death. The disassembly process of the P320, however, uses a take-down lever rather than pressing the trigger, eliminating the possibility of discharge during the disassembly process.

Recent events indicate that dropping the P320 beyond U.S. standards for safety may cause an unintentional discharge.

As a result of input from law enforcement, government and military customers, SIG has developed a number of enhancements in function, reliability, and overall safety including drop performance. SIG SAUER is offering these enhancements to its customers. Details of this program will be available at sigsauer.com on Monday, August 14, 2017.

The M17 variant of the P320, selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), is not affected by the Voluntary Upgrade.

“SIG SAUER is committed to our approach on innovation, optimization, and performance, ensuring we produce the finest possible products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Durability, reliability and safety, as well as end-user confidence in the SIG SAUER brand are the priorities for our team.”

SIG SAUER Reaffirms Safety of P320 Pistol

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Striker-fired pistol exceeds safety standards of ANSI/SAAMI® and U.S. military testing

Newington, NH (August 4, 2017) – In response to social media rumors questioning the safety of the P320 pistol, a variant of which was selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), SIG SAUER, Inc. has full confidence in the reliability, durability and safety of its striker-fired handgun platform. There have been zero (0) reported drop-related P320 incidents in the U.S. commercial market, with hundreds of thousands of guns delivered to date.

The P320 meets and exceeds all U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

All SIG SAUER pistols incorporate effective mechanical safeties to ensure they only fire when the trigger is pressed. However, like any mechanical device, exposure to acute conditions (e.g. shock, vibration, heavy or repeated drops) may have a negative effect on these safety mechanisms and cause them to not work as designed. This language is common to owner’s manuals of major handgun manufacturers.

As a result, individual attempts to perform drop tests outside of professionally controlled environments should not be attempted.

“SIG SAUER is committed to producing only the finest products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Safety and reliability have been and always will be paramount to the SIG SAUER brand.”

SIG SAUER Introduces the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol

Monday, January 9th, 2017

1911-spartan-bbgun_left

Newington, NH (January 9, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Spartan centerfire pistol, this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol features a unique bronze finish. The slide is engraved with the original Greek words ‘MOLON LABE’ which means ‘Come and Take Them’, and the grip is emblazoned with the Spartan helmet. This high-performance air pistol also features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide and a 16-round magazine which holds 4.5mm steel BBs. The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol also fits in current 1911 holster systems and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm, making it ideal for training.

“Training is a must for all shooters, regardless of skill level, and this new SIG SAUER 1911 Spartan BB Pistol is an effective training tool for beginners and experts alike,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “Our airguns are an inexpensive alternative to live-fire training for those who want to practice but can’t make it to the range as often as they would like, and the fact that the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol fits in a regular 1911 holster allows shooters to practice drawing in addition to accuracy. Shooting enthusiasts are really embracing SIG SAUER airguns as an additional method of training, and these airguns are also an excellent way to teach beginners firearm safety and how to shoot for the very first time.”

The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol has the same skeletonized trigger as its centerfire counterpart. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12gr CO2 cartridges. The 1911 Spartan

BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

Like the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol, the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol gives newer shooters the ability to learn firearm safety and basic fundamentals in a controlled, comfortable, quiet, and safe environment. It removes the intimidation factor of the loud noise and recoil, leaving the newer shooter more confident and with a much better understanding of traditional firearms and their safe use.

MSRP: $110.99

SIG SAUER® Introduces New P320® Advanced Sport Pellet Air Pistol

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

Newington, NH (January 4, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, optics, ammunition, airguns and accessories, adds to its world-class Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) line of airguns with the introduction of the new P320 CO2-powered pistol. This semi-automatic .177 caliber ASP pistol is the first air pistol in the world to feature a 30-round belt magazine and is designed to look and feel like the highly-acclaimed SIG SAUER P320 centerfire pistol. Weight and trigger pull are virtually identical offering recreational shooters, professionals and competitive shooters another outstanding training tool to easily hone their shooting skills at greatly reduced costs.

“The SIG SAUER P320 has been extremely well received by law enforcement, recreational shooters and competitive shooters alike, and customers have been asking for a pellet version of this pistol since we introduced our very first airguns,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The industry has truly embraced our ASP air rifles and air pistols as excellent training tools when the cost of ammunition, lack of range time or other factors prevent people from training with their centerfire guns as much as they would like or feel they should. We are committed to producing these high-quality, CO2-powered alternatives that make it easy for people to train in their back yards.”

The P320 ASP air pistol features a metal slide with realistic blowback action and polymer frame in addition to a smooth slide safety. This air pistol is double-action only, has a front blade sight, fixed rear sight and an accessory rail which allows easy mounting of a laser or tactical flashlight. The 12gr CO2 cartridge is inserted and removed through a compartment in the side of the grip. Velocity is up to 450 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on pellet weight, temperature and altitude. The P320 ASP air pistol also shoots steel BBs in addition to pellets and is available in two colors – Black or Coyote Tan.

MSRP: $119.99

SIG SAUER Introduces the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

1911_max_bb_gun_left

Newington, NH (November 16, 2016) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Max centerfire pistol designed by World Speed Shooting Champion and Team SIG Captain, Max Michel, Jr., this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol is a fun and useful training tool for shooters of all skill levels – from beginners to experts.

“When it comes to shooting, consistent training is invaluable, whether you are a member of law enforcement, the military or are a responsible citizen carrying to protect your family,” said Max Michel, Jr., captain of Team SIG. “Despite this, many people don’t have the time, opportunity or finances to train as much as they should. The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol gives you the flexibility to train anywhere, anytime with measurable results. Dry fire training is always recommended, but can be boring and sometimes misleading. This is a great way for those who typically shoot a 1911-style pistol to work on accuracy, speed and drawing from concealment.”

The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol fits in current 1911 holster systems and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm. It features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide. The 16-round magazine holds 4.5mm steel BBs and the trigger has the same styling and shape as the 1911 Max firearm. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12gr CO2 cartridges. The .177 caliber 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol also gives newer shooters the ability to learn firearm safety and basic fundamentals in a controlled, comfortable, quiet, and safe environment. It removes the intimidation factor of the loud bang and recoil, leaving the newer shooter more confident and with a much better understanding of traditional firearms and their safe use.

“I’m a 10-year Army veteran and have been a pro shooter for nearly 20 years, and I enjoy shooting this BB pistol because it’s just incredibly fun,” said Michel. “Regardless of your shooting ability, practice with this BB pistol is a really enjoyable and affordable way to improve your skills. I love shooting with my kids and this provides a platform for me to teach them safely while building their confidence. In the next few years as they continue to progress into more traditional firearms, they will be much better prepared because of the training they are receiving with the 1911 Max Michel BB pistol.”

MSRP: $110.99
