When the success of your job or mission requires unfailing reliability, turn to the name synonymous with the world’s most reliable firearms – SIG SAUER®. Law enforcement professionals have made our pistols and rifles their weapons of choice for the best reason of all—they perform the first time and every time they’re needed.
A long history of reliability, durability, accuracy, and success.
Our name and our reputation have their roots in a wagon factory above the Rhine Falls in Switzerland. It is here, that in 1860, Freidrich Peyer im Hof, Heinrich Moser, and Conrad Neher created a state-of- the-art rifle that would become the Swiss Army’s standard. They named the company the Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft (Swiss Industrial company) or SIG as it became known worldwide.
SIG evolved into the Swiss Army’s choice for pistols as well, first adopting the P49 forerunner of the P210®, then the P220® and the P230™. SIG’s small arms division was expanded to include J.P. Sauer & Sohn, GmbH, of Eckernförde, West Germany and Hämmerli Target Arms from Lenzburg, Switzerland. Following great success in Europe, the company came to America, opening its U.S. division, SIGARMS®, in 1985. The Virginia based company moved to its present location of Exeter, New Hampshire in 1990 to begin domestic production of the P229®.
Today, we are officially known as SIG SAUER, a corporate name and brand that continues to pay tribute to a worldwide legacy and reputation. SIG SAUER is an ISO 9001 certified company with over 500 employees. Our depth and breadth includes not only the manufacturing and distribution of the world’s most reliable handguns, long guns, and accessories, but unparalleled training through our world-renowned SIG SAUER Academy™ located close by in Epping, New Hampshire. U.S. Navy Seals, Federal Air Marshals, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Coast Guard, state and local law enforcement agencies from coast-to-coast increasingly trust their SIG SAUER weapons to perform the first time and every time they’re needed. Shouldn’t you?
