Sig Sauer has long been known for its dedication to professional operators. Militaries and law enforcement agencies worldwide field the company’s products. Sig Sauer pistols are some of the most battle-hardened and street proven in the world. Many professionals have saved lives using a P226, P229 or other Sig Sauer firearm.

No other company dedicates more time and effort in building pistols that get the job done—no matter the condition, no matter the environment, no matter the operator. Looking to emphasize this point while bringing that dedication to the general public, Sig Sauer has introduced its Legion series.

Each firearm, accessory and addition has been developed with substantial input from those using Sig Sauer pistols in harm’s way. Listening to those in the field, Sig Sauer has implemented the changes most commonly requested. Holsters and other accessories are chosen from the best manufacturers based on the same input.

Nothing is spared in the Legion series, even when it comes to customer service and support. Purchasing a Legion firearm gets you increased access, your own website, quality accessories and unparalleled service. Exclusivity is key with the new Legion series.

Initial Legion offerings include the P229 DA/SA pistol I recently tested in 9mm, along with variants in .357 SIG and .40 S&W. Sig will also offer P226s in those same chamberings as well as a single-action-only model. Testing this P229 was a true joy—it’s one of the best DA/SA pistols I’ve ever used. It had a smooth action, a short trigger reset, a high-cut frontstrap and beavertail, and robust, easy-to-see sights. With its checkered frontstrap, custom grips and a subdued gray coating, it has everything you need in a working pistol.
