SIG Sauer today manufactures all manner of firearms, optics, suppressors and ammunition, but the company earned its reputation as a maker of premium, hammer-fired pistols. SIG is returning to its roots by offering a new target model of the handgun that started it all—the P210. A sleek, full-size, all-steel semi-automatic with a clean 3-lb., 8-oz., single-action trigger pull, the P210 Target maintains the tight tolerances of the pistol that first put SIG on the map, while introducing updated features like custom walnut target stock panels and fully adjustable, fiber-optic sights. And perhaps best of all, for the first time in its history, the P210 is being built on this side of the Atlantic, resulting in gun-store prices that are a fraction of the cost of the Swiss-built original. sigsauer.com
