SIG SAUER® P227™ Offers .45 Auto Punch in P226®-size Platform
Classic line pistol offers 10+1 or 14+1 capacity
EXETER, NH (January 2013) — SIG SAUER® introduces the P227™, a double-stack .45-caliber addition to its Classic line of pistols. The P227 offers 10+1 rounds in a flush-fit magazine, and 14+1 in an extended duty magazine.
With similar dimensions to SIG SAUER’s legendary P226® platform, the P227 offers a big-bore cartridge without a large grip diameter. The added benefit is that the P227 will work in almost any holster made for railed P220® or P226 models.
The P227 will also accept any slide assembly from the P220. This means a regular-sized P227 Nitron® can be turned into a Carry, SAS™, Stainless or Super Match just by swapping top ends.
As with all Classic SIG SAUER handguns, the P227 features a stainless steel slide machined from barstock and coated with a durable, wear-resistant Nitron finish and light-weight alloy frame. The P227 includes the SIG SAUER four-point safety system of decocking lever, patented automatic firing pin safety block, safety intercept notch, and trigger bar disconnector.
