Another new addition to our site and store is the Sig Sauer P226 USPSA. This is a model that is probably easily overlooked because of its price and features but it does come across as quite a nice package. The P226 USPSA (US Practical Shooting Association) has a Warren Tactical rear sight and a Dawson fiber optic front sight, a beavertail, SRT (short reset trigger), front strap checkering on the frame, and engraving on the slide. This model is only available in 9mm. A portion of the sales proceeds are to be used in promoting USPSA activities through educational and shooting sports programs.
See the P226 USPSA specs along with pricing and ordering information in our store.
We have a new addition to the store – a model that we have never carried before. That model is the Sig Sauer P229 USTB (threaded barrel with night sights and SRT). The only other P229 available with a threaded barrel is the P229 Dark Elite TB.
We have a new addition to our online store – the Sig Sauer 556 Classic rifle with green furniture.
We are packaging the 556 rifle with the STS-081 mini red dot sight and selling them together for $1,249. See photos below of the green Sig 556 and head over to our store and see the model with specs and ordering information.

We have the new Sig Sauer 1911 Tactical Operations (TAC OPS) on order and we will be stocking them regularly in the near future. The 1911 TAC OPS is the replacement for Sig Sauer’s 1911 Blackwater. The 1911 Blackwater was discontinued in January 2010.
The 1911 Tactical Operations has some of the features that many 1911 owners seek: accessory rail, front strap checkering, Novak night sights, ambidextrous safety, extended magazine well (integrated into the main spring housing), Ergo XT grips, and Sig Sauer quality.

Back in July we learned about a few new P238 models including the Copperhead. We have received notification that the P238 Copperhead models have finally started shipping from the manufacturer. We are expecting them to arrive today or tomorrow – we will shoot and post detailed photos ASAP. We will also have the Copperhead available for sale online.
After our recent post announcing that the Sig Sauer SP2022 was available in the mainstream, we had some inquiries about whether or not Sig would produce a SP2022 in two tone.
I contacted our Sig Sauer rep and asked him about the idea of a two tone model. He indicated that they were not available and had never been produced. A few hours later my phone was ringing and our rep had an update. He talked with someone at Sig that handles manufacturing and found out that they could produce the SP2022 in two tone. Needless to say, we jumped on it and have ordered the following:
SP2022-9-TSS – SP2022 chambered in 9mm in two tone with night sights
SP2022-9-T – SP2022 chambered in 9mm in two tone with contrast sights
SP2022-40-TSS – SP2022 chambered in .40 S&W in two tone with night sights
SP2022-40-T – P2022 chambered in .40 S&W in two tone with contrast sights
I do not yet have an estimate on delivery but we’ll post detailed photos of each model and at that time they will be available for purchase in our online store.
Update 1-20-11 – Sig added the SP2022 two tone to their 2011 catalog!
We just received the P238 HD (Heavy Duty) in .380. This model is identical to the P238 HDW except that it has the G10 grips instead of the rosewood grips. See specs and pricing on the P238 HD in our store.
