If you were to name a SIG Sauer pistol in use by our military and law enforcement, it would probably be the P226 or P229. But there’s another SIG sidearm that also serves with our troops, various government agencies and local law enforcement officers. That’s the P228, designated as the M11 by the U.S. government.

At one time or another, the M11 has been issued by the Army, Navy-including the SEALs and Naval Aviators-Air Force, Secret Service, FBI, DEA and several other agencies. SIG Sauer now offers essentially the same pistol-but with a few noteworthy upgrades-to consumers as the M11-A1.

The M11-A1 is a solid, well-built pistol, which is no surprise considering its military lineage, and its mid-range size makes it a good candidate for concealed carry and personal protection. You can learn more about it by checking out the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated's Adam Heggenstaller.
