SIG P210: Back in the USA

The SIG Sauer P210 Legend pistol.

The SIG P210 is possibly one of the finest 9mm handguns ever to have been made, and it is once again available in the US.  The guns, made in Germany, have not been available in the United States for a number of years.  SIG Sauer makes several different versions of the pistol, including the standard Legend and a target version of the Legend.

The P210 uses a slide made of solid billet steel that is finished in the standard SIG Nitron finish.  The gun uses a manual safety and a drop safety to enhance the safe operation of the pistol.  The gun also uses fine wood grips.  The accuracy and ease of shooting these guns is legendary.  Make sure you check out the original press release from SIG Sauer below.

Original Article from 2010

The SIG Sauer P210 may be coming to a dealer near you.  Arguably one of the best pistols made in the 20th century, the Swiss Army P210 has been relaunched by SIG Sauer in Europe as the P210 Legend.

Details are still relatively few, but some specs are available from the European SIG Sauer web site.  Like the original, the P210 will be available in 9mm.  The barrel length is 4 3/4″ (approximately), and the single action trigger pull is about 3.4 pounds.

The big question…Will the SIG P210 be imported to the USA?

Quite possibly.  Rumors say SIG Sauer will introduce the pistol to the American market at the 2011 SHOT Show.  Other rumors say SIG won’t wait that long.  I’ve made a few inquiries, but have not gotten anything to confirm, or deny, these rumors.

Stay tuned.
