Newington, N.H.-( SIG SAUER, Inc. was recently honored with Ballistic’s Best Awards in three categories by Athlon Outdoors. The Ballistic’s Best Awards are Athlon’s recognition of superiority in class and significant product development throughout the year. Ballistic’s Best Awards were presented in nine categories for both Editor’s Choice and Reader’s Choice.

SIG SAUER was the recipient of the following Ballistic’s Best Awards:

Ballistic’s Best: Compact Semi-Auto, Editor’s Choice, SIG SAUER P365 Micro-Compact

Recognized for its excellent reliability, Ballistic’s Best lauded SIG SAUER for making, “no sacrifices” in quality or features when developing the P365 everyday carry pistol. Ballistic’s Best noted that in, “2018, SIG SAUER decided to swing for the fence and ended up releasing an exciting new offering in the new P365.” The P365 was built around the magazine with a 10+1 capacity, and a 12+1 magazine for extended capacity, for 9mm ammunition, an undercut trigger-guard, and standard X-RAY3 day/night sights.

Ballistic’s Best: Full-Sized Semi-Auto, Reader’s Choice, SIG SAUER P320 X-Carry

Recognized by readers as, “the best combination of concealment and high capacity in 9mm,” and, “a finely built firearm that feels good in hand, both at rest and work.” The P320 X-Carry is a modular striker-fired pistol available in varying grip sizes, which readers acknowledged lends itself to being, “a pistol that works for a larger demographic due to ergonomic design.”

Ballistic’s Best: Semi-Automatic Rifle, Reader’s Choice, SIG SAUER MCX Virtus SBR

Recognized by readers for offering, “the right balance of firepower, size, weight, and reliability.” The MCX Virtus was praised for its ease when changing barrel length and caliber, adjustable gas block, unique bolt changing system, and the variety of folding stock configurations. Ballistic’s Best readers hailed the MCX Virtus as the “future of MSR-style rifles.”

“Receiving the Ballistic’s Best Awards from Athlon Outdoors for Editor’s Choice and Reader’s Choice in three categories is very gratifying for everyone at SIG SAUER,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We work tirelessly to introduce new products by remaining committed to our research and development, utilizing cutting edge engineering, innovative designs, and superior quality, with the sole purpose of enhancing the shooting experience. This recognition is really a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved, throughout our entire process at SIG SAUER, and our drive to be the best in everything we do.”

Unfortunately, Sig’s customer service HAS NOT kept up with their products. Sig CS SUX!!!


I have to say Sig is on the cutting edge of engineering and the modularity of their weapons systems . I have several of there guns and I must say they are amazing . Quality , fit and finish and most of all reliability are top notch .


Oh great! Something else for the Glock-fan-boys to complain about.

I don’t get how the P365 beat the PPQ SC.


It’s longer, much wider and taller than the Sig, but with the same capacity. It also comes with polymer sights. Oh, and they’re not night sights, which come standard on the Sig. it’s also more expensive. More so considering night sight replacement. It’s also over 3 ounces heavier. Walther just chopped up their PPQ. Nothing new here.
