Video—I Have This Old Gun: SIG P210 Pistol

posted on June 29, 2018

With a reputation as the Rolex of service pistols, the SIG P210 was first produced in the late 1930s. Around 1949, the Swiss Army adopted it as its standard-issue sidearm, and “the model 49” remained in use for most of the 20th century. Once manufactured in Germany and imported to the U.S., SIG Sauer is now producing a more affordable modern variant in its New Hampshire manufacturing plant. For more on the SIG P210, watch this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
