New M11-A1

Sig is rolling out an exciting new model this week! P228 fans rejoice!

The new M11-A1 is a cross breed between the P228 and P229. It has a stainless steel slide, non-railed frame, and P228 two piece grips. The traditional P228’s have carbon steel slides.

The M11-A1 ships with a short reset trigger, 15rd mags, phosphate coated internals, SIGLite night sights, and a stainless steel slide with Sig logo engraved on the top. The M11 is currently primarily used by the USAF and Naval Aviation units.

We will be placing an order for the M11 next week and hope to receive some of the first units that will ship.

    Wow! Someone had clarity of thought at Sig Sauer! No rail, no tail, now can they get back to a standard DA/SA trigger please? A hell of a nice gun Sig. Those will sell good.

    Skip the logo and the SS slide, Stick a rail on there and lower the price and I’ll buy one, otherwise I’ll skip it. Most likely it’s top heavy like a 229 and what about the E2 grip?

    @ Bill, then it wouldn’t be a MK11 now would it? Go buy a 229 Enhanced Elite.

    Sweeeeeeeet!!! gun. just bought a certified pre-owned (cpo)/”red label” P229 40 Cal S&W for $550.00 for me. ungodly good condition. my first large caliber pistol. Shot a 100% in the CCH test… Sig made me looke good. Then bought a used P239 at $549.00 from Cabela’s for the wife… i don’t think it was ever shot. Don’t back away from a used Sig. Mine were both Nitron model.

    Are they available in California?

  14. October 1st, 2012 at 11:33 | #14

    I doubt Sig Sauer will have a California approved version initially.

    or can you i dont see a rail?

  20. gordo…
    November 23rd, 2012 at 15:26 | #20

    i own a german p228 love it, and steve you must be a rail nut. some guns are better with out rails, a light on a pistol is only good for mall ninja’s and gun shop commandos (good job sig..)

  21. steve
    November 24th, 2012 at 22:34 | #21

    have you seen the adaptive carbine platform gordo? gotta have a rail to mount it.im no ninja or commando .no light on mine just a lazer which in all counts is a light but it serves 2 purposes .plus i prefer my weapons made in america. except for one my hungarian ak carbine.

    my bat…i work in a gun shop and i see/hear it all the time on rails,lights lazers,out of a 100 guns made in the USA i would say 80% had too go back for work. ie kimbers,springfilds,kaltecs,rugers, but i never sent back a glock,hk,sig,now on the AK ya brother good show. i love 1911 when they work but as a carry gun ill stick with german tech..

    in the past i have owned them all at one time or another, and i can say sig sauer pistols are on top. out of the box the best firearm i have carryed and being ex-military and an ex-police officer, i would save up my pennys for that right sig..but i already got her p228 west german (its my baby) good job sig on m11

    gordon is right about the rails. they look cheesy. serves a purpose but in the end, you will realize that you don’t really need it. it is better to have a surefire G6 on the other hand than a mounted one. better concealability for non-railed models. they only make a few holsters for railed models, especially a light bearing one. and to add to everything, a german made P228 has way better quality than the us made P228,P229 and the new M11A1. now i have a Colt 1911 thats made in USA, so that proves i am not biased. i actually picked a CPO P228 yesterday for $599 and i couldnt believe how lucky i was. Also Steve, lose the hungarian AK and get a Russian made one and don’t contradict yourself. if you did prefer your weapons made in usa, you would not have gotten a AK made in hungary.

    sailormarine sir if they made an ak style rifle in the us that works as good. i would have bought that . im not a fan of the ar platform or the price . gotta buy what works well . ive had that hungarian honey for almost 20 years now and it shoots as good as the day i got her after thousands and thousands of rounds. love my american made m&p .357 sig though

    Has an M11-A1 been submitted for CA testing?

    Looks like a double stack P6(which I carry like it’s part of me!) I also pack a 220,a 226 or a 229/40 as the mood takes me. No rails, no lasers, no bells and whistles! No misfires either! I own lots of pistols,none of them cheap, and for all it’s worth, for me to put my 1911 away, thats sayin’ something! There is no compromise, when the need arises. SIG weapons give none. I will soon aquire a 228/ M11,and retire my P6 (EXCEPT FOR WEDDINGS & FUNERALS) in favor of the higher capacity.Once a SIG owner, ALWAYS, a SIG owner.

    Sailor marine; SIG makes a version of the AK, the556, or P556 pistol, and Gallil,is most likely the world finest version. CZ/Zastava’s(real ones) ain’t bad either!

    Buy one and ship it to an FFL in CA that does SSE for a small fee. After it is transfered reconfigure it back to standard configuration. This perfectly legal, but the law is changing to close this loophole.

    I saw one at Cabela’s for $999 the first of May. I would have bought it but I had just bought a new AR.

    Just as an FYI. The Air Force is just one of the Branches using this gun. I was a Military Police Investigator and carried this gun in Iraq in 2004. CID (Criminal Investigations Division) of the US Army also carries the M11.

    Bill: was it the M11 or M11A1 you used in 2004? There is a big difference between the two.

    Bought one recently in NY. Met the new standards (safe act). $1072 with state sales tax. Great gun.

    I bought one when they first came out. Great gun and love the short trigger reset. Allows for rapid and accurate fire. I also carry this gun on occasion and it is not bad at all. for IWB, much of a gun’s weight is against your body so it does not feel as heavy as it is.

    It is a great shooter, like all my other 3 Sigs. If you are into using a great trigger reset and a gun that is about the size of a Glock 19, the perfect size for me, this is the gun for you.
