Sig P938 Threaded Barrel Available

April 7th, 2014 No comments

Sig finally started shipping the P938 threaded barrels! They were first announced and put on display a year ago at SHOT Show but like many new releases in this industry, the lead time from the concept to production is not timely (about 15 months in this case).

The barrel should drop right into a standard 9mm P938 slide (note the specificity since there is now a P938 in .22lr).

The thread pitch is 1/2×28 and the thread cap is included. The Sig part number is BBL-938-9-T.

Order the barrel in our store today!

Sig PSB Usage / Shouldering not determined to be creating SBR

April 3rd, 2014 No comments

It seems that a sergeant in Colorado made an inquiry to the ATF regarding the intended usage of the Sig Sauer Pistol Stabilizing Brace (PSB).

The ATF clearly explained in their response that shouldering does not change the classification and does not classify the pistol as a SBR!

Download a copy of the letter / read the text below:

Dear Sgt. Bradley:

This is in response to your communication dated January 24, 2014, to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). Your -mail was forwarded to the ATF Firearms Technology Branch (FTB), Martinsburg, West Virginia, for reply. In your note, you ask about firing an AR-15 type pistol from the shoulder; specifically, if doing so would cause the pistol to be reclassified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR).

For the following reasons we have determined that firing a pistol from the shoulder would not cause the pistol to be reclassified as an SBR:

FTB classifies weapons based on their physical design characteristics. While usage/functionality of the weapon does influence the intended design, it is not the sold criterion for determining the classification of a weapon. Generally speaking, we do not classify weapons based on how an individual uses a weapon.

FTB has previously determined (see FTB # 99146) that the firing of a weapon from a particular position, such as placing the receiver extension of an AR-15 type pistol on the user’s shoulder, does not change the classification of a weapon. Further, certain firearm accessories such as the Sig Stability Brace have not been classified by FTB as shoulder stocks and, therefore, using the brace improperly does not constitute a design change. Using such an accessory improperly would not change the classification of the weapon per Federal law. However, FTB cannot recommend using a weapon (or weapon accessory) in a manner not intended by the manufacturer.

We thank you for your inquiry and trust the foregoing has been responsive.

Sincerely yours,

Signed

Earl Griffith

Chief, Firearms Technology Branch

This further solidifies the legality of the PSB!

New Sig Sauer Platform: P320

January 9th, 2014 No comments

Sig Sauer has a new platform coming out which will be very similar to the P250 and it is the P320.

The P320 is going to be a modular striker fired handgun with modularity like the P250.

The P320 will be available in sub-compact, compact, and full size frames (grip shells) and the same sizes for slides. Calibers will likely include 9mm, .40 S&W, .357 Sig, and .45 ACP. I have not seen anything to suggest that .22 LR will be offered but I feel Sig is missing the boat if they don’t make that caliber available. Currently the P220, P226, and P229 can be converted from centerfire calibers down to .22 LR with the separate conversion kit.

When we obtain new information about the P320 we will post updates – this may not happen until next week at SHOT Show.

Sig Sauer 716 18″ 3-Gun Rifle

November 6th, 2013 3 comments

Yesterday we received a shipment of the new Sig Sauer 716 “3-Gun” rifles.  This rifle has many features we have seen on the 716 Patrol including a 4-position piston operating system, flip-up front and rear iron sights, and a quad rail (albeit slightly longer). You even get the durable Magpul 20-Round PMAG, but two this time around compared to one on the Patrol rifle. The differences may not be easy to spot, however there are some notable upgrades which make this rifle stand out from the standard Patrol rifle (or other Sig Sauer AR-style rifles we have seen thus far).

First and foremost, this rifle ships in a very nice hard plastic case similar to the SSG 3000 case. New is the 18″ Heavy Barrel – it’s threaded and includes a thread cap. This may very well be the same barrel we will find on the R716 ‘Precision Marksman’ when it’s eventually released. Next, a TI-7 stock sits on the buffer tube with QD sockets on either side which you can use in combination with the included 2-point QD sling. This stock feels strong and sturdy – a fine addition to the rifle. Also welcomed is an upgraded latch on the charge handle to give a better grip, especially while wearing gloves. While on the subject of gloves, a Magpul Winter Trigger Guard sits nicely under the trigger. A raised letter ‘G’ is cast on the side of the new trigger, a hint that you will have something better than the standard Mil-Spec we’ve been accustomed to. In place of this basic unit Sig Sauer has installed a Geissele 2-Stage Trigger to complete the 3-Gun package.

The rifle pictured is being shipped to a friend who is a police officer in Illinois where it will be put through its paces.  We will post any pictures and thoughts he can provide from a law enforcement perspective after he is able to fully vet the rifle.

M400 Pistol FDE

October 10th, 2013 No comments

Sig is coming out with a new M400 pistol with flat dark earth Magpul furniture and a flat dark earth Pistol Stabilizing Brace.

This variation will be welcomed as the other available model, the M400 Swat pistol, has a heavier quad rail adding more front end weight. Given the intentions of the brace, it makes sense to keep the weight as low as possible.

Below is a photo of the M400 FDE Pistol:

M400-11in-PSB-FDE-L

We don’t yet have an ETA on initial deliveries but I suspect the only holdup is the FDE PSB. The other parts should be readily available.

New MK25 and M11 Desert

October 10th, 2013 7 comments

Sig is going to be releasing three new pistol variations with expected deliveries starting before the end of the year…

These three variations are:

  • M11 Desert – Part number M11-A1-D. It sounds like this should be a FDE cerakote finished M11-A1 pistol.
  • M11 Threaded Barrel – Part number M11-A1-TB. This is a threaded barrel M11-A1.
  • MK Desert – Part number MK-25-D. Like the M11 above, this will be a FDE cerakote finished MK-25.

We will post photos and any additional details as they become available.

Sig’s Fall Refresh

October 2nd, 2013 3 comments

Sig provided their 2014 model lineup to dealers this week and with it included a number of new firearms and accessories.

Of all the additions, the most notable to us is a 1911 chambered in .38 Super. The 1911′s in 9mm and .40 are still in the list so it appears Sig intends to eventually produce them. The P210 Legend Super Target is also back in the price list (it was dropped from the 2013 list). We are also seeing the addition of a P938 Scorpion as well as M400 upper receivers.

So without further ado, here are the additions: Read more…

Sig 716 18″ 3-Gun Model Coming

September 16th, 2013 14 comments

Update 11-13-13: The 3Gun is in stock. See our post with photos and details.

Original post:

We received word today that Sig will be selling a new 716 rifle with an 18″ barrel. The model is going to be called the 716 3-Gun and will be shipping in about four to eight weeks.

I’m told the 716 3-Gun will have a match grade trigger, Sig grip and stock, quad rail, 18″ heavy barrel, and it will ship in a Sig Rifle-Gobag. MSRP is expected to be roughly $2600.

This rifle will be the first 18″ 716 to ship. In 2012 Sig took orders for a 20″ Precision Marksman (R716-H20B-PRM) but it never shipped. Eventually it was canceled and replaced by an 18″ Precision Marksman (R716-H18B-PRM). To date we have not seen any of the 18″ Precision Marksman rifles ship. As of this posting the estimated ship date on that model is 02/2014.

As we receive new information or photos, we will post updates here.

Update 6-18-13: The Sig part number for this model is R716-H18B-3GH and the Sig order description says “SIG716, 7.62 NATO, 3GUN HVY, SEMI, 18 IN, MATCH TRIGGER, SIG GRIP”. Estimated delivery is currently November 13, 2013.
