Sig Sauer P226 Blackwater Tactical Discontinued
Update 7-8-10 – We have the P226 Tactical Operations (Tac Ops) available in 9mm.
Update 3-31-10 – We just receive a partial shipment of our outstanding order on the P226 Blackwater Tactical models. We’ve got them back in stock and you can buy them today on our site.
We recently received word that Sig Sauer will no longer produce the P226 Blackwater Tactical. The reason relates to licensing with Blackwater but they have replaced it with a new model called the P226 Tactical Operations. The only real difference between this and the P226 Blackwater Tactical is the branding.
Sig Sauer will be filling our outstanding order on the P226 Blackwater Tactical models and we’ll post an update on the site when we see the final shipment of them. We’ll also be stocking the Tact Ops model soon.
Here is Sig’s description of the Tactical Operations model:
The SIG SAUER® P226® Tactical Operations is a full-sized 9mm or .40S&W featuring a stainless steel slide with rugged, wear-resistant Nitron® finish, front cocking serrations and SIGLITE® rear night sight, a TRUGLO® Tritium Fiber Optic front sight and features the Short Reset Trigger or SRT. SIG engineers designed the SRT to provide you the same great safety and smooth action of the SIG DA/SA with a comfortable reset that is 60% shorter for faster trigger return and surgical control during high speed shooting. The beavertail frame is black hard anodized light weight alloy with integral Picatinny rail and polymer Magwell grips. The pistol comes with four (4) 20 round super capacity magazines so it’s ready to see action. The SIG SAUER P226 tactical Operations pistol is backed by SIG SAUER with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
