SIG SAUER Electro-Optics Transforms Hunting With The Launch Of BDX

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (May 4, 2018) – The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics division today unveiled their all new Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) rangefinders and riflescopes with integrated Applied Ballistics® and wireless Bluetooth® technology. This groundbreaking BDX technology enables interoperability and key ballistic holdover information to be exchanged wirelessly between SIG SAUER BDX Electro-Optics products. The foundation of the BDX system was designed for simplicity and ease of use. SIG SAUER BDX requires no new learning, and uses the same tools hunters and shooters have been using for years.

How does BDX work? The BDX rangefinder and riflescope system is simple, fast, and intuitive. Simply download the “SIG BDX” app available for Android or iOS smartphones, pair the KILO BDX rangefinder and SIERRA3BDX riflescope, set up a basic ballistic profile, and then you’re ready to shoot or hunt. Once you are in the field, range your target as you normally would, and the KILO BDX rangefinder will utilize onboard Applied Ballistics Ultralight™ to instantly send your dope to the scope via Bluetooth. Using your basic ballistic profile the ballistic solution is calculated for your target and will instantly illuminate on the BDX-R1 Digital Ballistic Reticle with windage and elevation holds in the SIERRA3BDX riflescope. A blue LED on the riflescope power selector indicates that the BDX system is paired, and when the reticle has received new ballistic holdover and windage data from the rangefinder.

“Rangefinding riflescopes of the past have had two major shortcomings: they are either big, boxy and heavy, or extremely expensive,” said Andy York, president, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “The revolutionary and affordable BDX system packs advanced ballistics technology into a simple platform that looks just like the rangefinder and riflescope that every hunter is using today. It is extremely simple to use; range a target, put the digital ballistic holdover dot on target, pull the trigger, impact. Incredibly accurate and extremely simple, just connect the dot.”

The BDX family of rangefinders includes: KILO1400BDX, KILO1800BDX, KILO2200BDX, KILO2400BDX, and KILO3000BDX rangefinder binocular. These rangefinders include many of the legacy features that the KILO name was built on: Lightwave DSP™ digital rangefinder engine, Hyperscan™ with 4 times per second scan rate, RangeLock™, and the Lumatic™ auto-adjusting display.

Available in 3.5-10x42mm, 4.5-14x44mm, 4.5-14x50mm, and 6.5-20x52mm, the SIERRA3BDX riflescopes have the look, feel, weight, and size of traditional riflescopes. They feature HD glass for superior resolution and optical clarity, 30mm main tubes, side-focus parallax adjustments, and the LevelPlex™ digital anti-cant system. The BDX-R1 Digital Ballistic Reticle is the evolution of holdover, providing a ballistic solution out to 800 yards with 1 MOA of accuracy.

Rounding out these superior features is SIG SAUER’s kinetic energy transfer indicator: KinETHIC™. KinETHIC provides assistance in assuring an ethical hunt by indicating when energy on target drops below a threshold that can be set by the hunter using the BDX App.

“Ethics in hunting are a contract we make with ourselves based on the standards we as sportsmen adhere to as a group, what we feel good about personally, and respect for the game and our hunting traditions,” said Andy York president, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “KinETHIC is a feature that asks the hunter to make an educated and ethical decision beforehand by taking into consideration what the velocity and energy capabilities of your bullet and load are to deliver a killing shot. It then lets you know if the shot you are about to take will fulfill this contract. If not, it provides a visual affirmation to stalk-in closer. Knowing your maximum effective hunting range is more than just knowing what you can hit.”

KILO BDX Rangefinders starting at $299.99 MSRP
SIERRA3BDX Riflescopes starting at $599.99 MSRP

Available at dealers July, 2018.

All SIG SAUER Electro-Optics are covered by the SIG SAUER INFINITE GUARANTEE™, and electronic components under our LIMITED 5-YEAR warranty. Please see sigsauer.com for full details.

New SIG SAUER Airguns on Display at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (April 30, 2018) – The new SIG SAUER ASP20 break barrel air rifle, 1911 We The People BB Pistol and X-Five ASP Air Pistol will be among the many high-performance airguns on display in the SIG SAUER booth (#6220) at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas this weekend. Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the highly anticipated ASP20 features the airgun industry’s most advanced trigger system and delivers down-range power and accuracy with the lightest cocking effort in its class, making it ideal for hunting small game. This is the first SIG SAUER airgun to be built at SIG SAUER’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in New Hampshire and many of the company’s firearms technologies were used in the design and production of this impressive break barrel air rifle.

“Airguns are excellent training tools and a lot of fun to shoot, and we welcome NRA members and their families to the SIG SAUER booth to check out our latest offerings like the 1911 We The People BB Pistol, X-Five ASP pellet pistol and ASP 20,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The ASP20 is unique – a true game changer in the break barrel market with its unrivaled trigger system and GlideLite™ cocking mechanism which cocks the ASP20 at 33 lbs. versus the standard 48-52 lb. cocking rate typically found in break barrels in this power range. We are also offering it with a SIG SAUER WHISKEY3 ASP 4-12×44 Adjustable Objective riflescope.”

NRA members who are eager to get in a little target practice during the weekend can visit Pyramyd Air’s indoor airgun range in Ballroom C of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center where the SIG SAUER MPX ASP air rifle will be available to shoot.

The Pyramyd Air range is open from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.

Bismarck Police Department Selects the SIG SAUER P320

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Newington, N.H. (March 21, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce that the Bismarck Police Department has selected the P320 striker-fired pistol as its handgun of choice.

The city commission approved the purchase of 140 SIG SAUER P320 handguns equipped with X-RAY3 pistol sights, for faster sight acquisition under all lighting conditions.

“The department needs to replace our handguns due to some documented malfunctions and reliability concerns over the last couple of years,” said Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin, speaking of their current sidearm.

Employing its cadre of certified firearms instructors, the department conducted extensive testing of firearms from three manufacturers. In addition to the P320, the department tested the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0, and the Glock® 17 & 19. According to Chief Donlin, the decision was quickly narrowed down to the SIG SAUER P320 based on performance and reliability.

“The SIG SAUER, in the majority of opinions, outperformed the Glock,” Donlin said. “It provided a lot more overall comfort and handling in the varying hand sizes of our officers,” noting the modularity of the P320, with its three sizes of grip module to choose from. “The SIG, out of the box, was very accurate. Even our best shooters couldn’t believe how much better they shot with the SIG versus the Glock.”

“SIG SAUER is very proud to have been chosen by the Bismarck Police Department,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales. “The P320 was chosen because of its modularity, accuracy and most importantly its reliability. These officers put their lives on the line, and we’re humbled to have our products chosen to help keep them safe.”

Airguns are also perfect for teaching beginners firearms safety and the fundamentals of shooting.”

The X-Five ASP air pistol has an adjustable rear sight and an accessory rail which allows easy mounting of a laser or tactical flashlight. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for quick loading of the 12-gram CO2 cartridges. The X-Five shoots up to 430 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

Team SIG Begins 2018 with Big Wins in the Sunshine State

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Max Michel wins 1st place in Carry Optics, Lena Miculek takes High Lady in PCC

Newington, N.H. (February 28, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Members Max Michel and Lena Miculek on their outstanding placings at the USPSA Florida Open. Team Captain Max Michel won first place shooting his P320 RX and P320 X5 in the Carry Optics Division, while Pro Shooter Lena Miculek took the title of High Lady with a 5th place overall finish in the Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) Division shooting her SIG MPX Rifle.

Drawing in almost 450 shooters from across the United States, Canada, Europe and South America the USPSA Florida Open Pistol Shooting Tournament was held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, FL on February 15-18th. Competitors clashed in 11 challenging and unique stages, forcing shooters to keep up the pace and make complex decisions on the fly.

“There is a balance of speed and accuracy that must be met,” Michel said. “I feel I am able to do this best in the Carry Optics division.” Michel won 10 out of the 11 stages which clinched his first place victory. “I also believe the SIG P320 RX and P320 X5 I compete with give me the best chance to win.”

Earning the title of High Lady, Miculek kicked off her season by dominating the competition in what she believes may be one of the most creative and challenging matches of the year. “I would definitely say this wasn’t a warm up match,” Miculek said of the Florida Open. “Hard cover, half targets and long shots everywhere you look.”

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.

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.

NEWINGTON, N.H. (July 31, 2014) — SIG SAUER® has launched a redesigned webstore, offering an expanded selection of SIG SAUER branded clothing, merchandise, accessories, and a new line of Mitch Rosen designed holsters.

The SIG SAUER webstore has always been the premier online resource for factory parts and accessories. Now fans can show their affinity for the SIG SAUER brand with a selection of men’s and women’s shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and drinkware.

“SIG SAUER owners are passionate about their firearms,” said Jeff Creamer, SIG SAUER Executive Director and Chief Merchandise Manager. “Now they can show that passion with products that fit the SIG SAUER brand.”

In addition to new clothing, SIG SAUER has partnered with Mitch Rosen Extraordinary Gunleather to provide a line of SIG SAUER-specific holsters, including hard-to-find holsters for handguns such as the SP2022®, 1911, P320, P250® and P290®. Right- and left-hand models are available in most patterns.

“Mitch Rosen is one of the top holster manufacturers out there, and we’re excited to offer these products,” Creamer said.

While many of the products in the webstore are new, Creamer said they are just the beginning.

“Expect to see more and more products being added in the future,” he said. “We’re working with some of the best clothing and accessory manufacturers to develop some really cool items.”

Edit: SIG Sauer has revised their shipping rates for SIG apparel. They’ll be cutting shipping to $9.95 and offering free shipping on all order $100 or more.

The SIG MPX is a submachine gun designed to operate with a fully closed and locked rotating bolt system. It employs a gas-operated short stroke piston system and the bolt is held open on the last round fired. The MPX can be configured for three calibers, 9mm, .357SIG, and .40S&W, by swapping out for the appropriate barrel. An integral picatinny rail at 12 o’clock allows for the use of optics, including the SIG MPX reflex sight.
