SIG Sauer has released three commemorative pistols to benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF). The pistols include a 1911 Nitron, 1911 Stainless and P320 Carry that are exclusively engraved to honor law enforcement. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each handgun will be donated to the NLEOMF.
Founded in 1984, the NLEOMF’s mission is to tell the story of American Law Enforcement, remember the fallen and make it safer for those who serve. The group built and maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial—the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty—as well as the National Law Enforcement Museum, organizes National Police Week and conducts research into officer fatality trends and issues.
“This week is National Police Week and SIG Sauer honors our law enforcement officers that put themselves in harm’s way every day, while remembering those that paid the ultimate sacrifice,” said Tom Jankiewicz, executive vice president of SIG Sauer Law Enforcement Sales. “The production of these unique pistols will raise awareness for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and provide funding to support the important work they do on behalf of our nation’s law enforcement officers.”
Three commemorative NLEOMF pistols are available. The SIG Sauer 1911 Nitron version has a Nitron-coated stainless steel frame and slide engraved on the right side with the memorial badge and rose, along with the words “National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.” The top of the slide is engraved and colored with the American flag and Thin Blue Line, and the left side is adorned with the words “Respect, Honor, Remember,” and one of the Protector Lions symbolizing the protective nature of our law enforcement officers.
A commemorative 1911 Stainless version features a stainless steel frame and slide engraved on the right side with one of the Protector Lions from the National Law Enforcement Memorial Wall. The top of the slide is adorned with the memorial badge and rose, and the words “Respect, Honor, Remember,” and the left of the slide is engraved with the quote “It is not how these officers died that made them heroes it is how they lived.”
The P320 Carry version has a Nitron-coated stainless steel frame and slide engraved with the National Law Enforcement Memorial Logo. The 9 mm pistol has a Carry grip module, featuring SIGLITE Night Sights, ambidextrous slide catch lever and includes three 17-round magazines.
The commemorative pistols will be available through June 1, 2020.
