SIG SAUER Introduces P229 SAO Pistol to Legion Series
P229 SAO Pistol

SIG SAUER, Inc. introduced the P229 SAO pistol as the newest addition to its Legion Series of firearms. Legion is a product line developed by SIG SAUER based on input from elite shooting professionals, and designed to exceed the expectations of the serious shooter.

"The P229 is one of SIG SAUER's classic pistols and is iconic amongst shooting enthusiasts. It is widely regarded as one of the best designed and proportioned pistols within the elite shooting community. We are really excited to introduce the much anticipated P229 SAO to our Legion Series because it was our Legion members that asked for this variation. The Legion Series P229 SAO pistol is the natural evolution of the shared mission of SIG SAUER and our Legion members - to never settle." - Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc.

The Legion P229 SAO is a 9mm, hammer-fired pistol, equipped with X-Ray 3 Day/Night Sights. It is an all-metal compact pistol with a Legion-gray coated slide and frame, a SIG Master Shop inspired flat trigger, enhanced checkering on the front strap and under trigger guard, and custom high checkered black G10 grips with a Legion medallion. The P229 SAO features a reduced and contoured elite beavertail, which allows for a higher grip, but a reduced profile, thus eliminating printing. The Legion P229 SAO pistol comes standard with three 15-round magazines (state-compliant 10-round magazines available.)

SIG SAUER's Legion is an exclusive members-only access program available to owners of the SIG SAUER Legion Series of firearms. Upon registration of any Legion Series firearm, members receive a complimentary thermo-mold carrying case, a challenge coin matched to the firearm, exclusive access to Legion gear and merchandise, and receive exclusive communications from SIG SAUER and the Legion. Additionally, all SIG SAUER SAO pistols are only available through the Legion Series.


The SIG SAUER Legion Series P229 SAO pistol will be on display at the SIG SAUER Exhibition Booth (#6220) at the NRA Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, Friday, May 4th through Sunday, May 7th.

Height: 5.4"Width: 1.8"Sight radius: 5.7"

Designed for lightweight, low recoil accuracy, the CMR30 .22 WMR features a nice, single-action trigger, ambidextrous dual non-reciprocating operating handles, ambidextrous safety and heel catch magazine release. The KelTec CMR30 is a .22 Magnum carbine that holds 30 rounds in each of its two flush-fit magazines. That's a lot of firepower for a 3.8-pound, semi-auto, collapsible truck gun. It comes out of the box as you see it, including Magpul sights and ambidextrous, non-reciprocating dual operating handles. She's a straight blow-back tack driver that delivers a ton of fun.
