About Sig Sauer
Despite being established only in the last quarter of the 20th century, SIG Sauer has become one of the most popular brands in the world of firearms and ammunition. The SIG’s brand name is actually used by several sister companies involved in the design and manufacture of firearms. Originally, the company was known as Schweizerische Waggon Fabrik (SWF), later Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG), but it then went through several selloffs and the SIG Sauer brand is now spread over several companies. The company’s origins can be traced to Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost of the 16 administrative districts of Germany. Over the last couple of decades, LO Holding, the owner of the SIG Sauer brand, established 3 companies in a number of different countries. The first is the German company known as SIG Sauer GmbH & Co. KG. The second is based in Switzerland and it’s called Sig Sauer AG. The last and most relevant and profiting one is the SIG Sauer Inc., currently based in New Hampshire.
SIG Sauer is the world’s leading brand in the field of full, compact, sub compact, and micro compact size handguns. The most popular of SIG’s full size handguns is undeniably the SIG P226 pistol. The basic SIG Sauer P226 as well as most of its many variants are in service with numerous law enforcement and military organizations all around the world. Among the compact size handguns, the most popular from SIG Sauer’s workshop are definitely the SIG Sauer M17 and M18 models, which are also the current service pistols used by the United States Armed Forces. However, as of 2021, the most successful SIG Sauer pistol is without a doubt the SIG Sauer P365. Ever since its introduction at the 2018 SHOT Show, the micro-compact P365 has consistently been appearing among nearly every single list of the best concealed carry pistols.
Apart from a wide range of small arms, SIG also produces a number of different rifles. Among these, the most popular one is probably the SIG516, an AR-15 style rifle chambered in 5.56×45mm NATO. However, the SIG’s manufacture isn’t limited only to firearm production. SIG is also famous for their own line of firearm cartridges. The most popular among these is most definitely the .357 SIG, utilized by many different pistols produced all around the world. SIG Sauer is also a behemoth in the field of electro-optics as they have designed many of the most popular red dot and reflex sights, but also tactical weapon lights and lasers. All of the products developed by SIG Sauer are of extremely high quality and they boast immense reliability. Most importantly, SIG Sauer keeps innovating their best-selling products, which reflects the main motto of the company - “Never settle”.
