Not content with the launch of the innovative MPX line or the release of its new suppressors, SIG Sauer also unveiled a new handgun at SHOT Show 2013: the P227. A double-stack .45-caliber addition to an already classic line of the pistols, the P227 offers a 10+1 capacity in its standard magazine and a 14+1 capacity in its extended duty magazine.

The P227 sports dimensions similar to the company's iconic P226 platform, offering a big-bore cartridge without a large grip diameter. The P227 will also work in almost any holster made for railed P220 or P226 models.

Mark Keefe got the complete rundown on the P227 at Media Day at the Range. Get your own look with the video below:
