NRA Gun Gear of the Week: SIG Sauer P229 Legion Pistol

posted on November 18, 2018

These days, polymer-frame, 9 mm Luger, semi-automatic pistols are garnering all the headlines and filling the holsters of defense-minded armed citizens. But for those seeking a comparably compact all-metal pistol with excellent ergonomics, upgraded features and a proven service record with armed professionals, look no further than SIG’s P229 Legion. With a 3.9” barrel and 15-round capacity, the P229 is right in line with other popular concealed carry guns, but it’s custom-like fit, enhanced sights and trigger, and double-action/single-action operation definitely set this pistol apart. This week, Lock, Stock & Barrel is headed to the range with the SIG P229 Legion.
