NEWINGTON, N.H.-( With a history that dates back to 1949, the SIG SAUER P210 was the combat handgun for the Swiss Military, and is regarded as one of the most legendary, reliable, and accurate firearms in the world. Today, SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the American Made P210 Standard pistol to the U.S. Commercial Market featuring modern improvements, at a price-point that will allow more consumers to enjoy this timeless pistol.

“The SIG SAUER P210 Standard is an engineering marvel, and with this launch our product development has really come full circle in bringing our production of all SIG products back to the U.S. The P210 Standard combines the Swiss and German heritage that made this pistol legendary, with the ingenuity of being American made,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The reverse rail on this pistol gives it precise accuracy. The thin contour grip, and balance in weight gives it less felt recoil, and the tuned, short trigger press truly makes this one of the finest handguns ever made.”

The SIG SAUER P210 Standard is a 9mm hammer-fired pistol, with a precision machined stainless steel slide and frame. The pistol features iron sights, upgraded ergonomic controls including a relocated manual thumb-safety for easier accessibility, a target grade trigger, custom walnut grips, a side magazine release, and improved beavertail. The pistol comes standard with two 8-round magazines.

P210 Standard:

  • Total length: 8.4”
  • Barrel length: 5”
  • Weight (incl. magazine):36.9 oz.
  • Height: 5.3”
  • Finish: Nitron
  • Sight radius: 6.7”

The new SIG SAUER P210 Standard will be on display at the SIG SAUER Booth (#3912) at the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26 – 28, 2019. The pistol is currently shipping and available in stores. To learn more about this pistol, visit

    1. I mean, really? C’mon, people…the only people who could bitch about paying $1k+ for a SIG P210 are those who know nothing about the heritage of this weapon. I won’t go into that heritage much except to say that until the modern crop of military-grade handguns like modern SIGs that combine match-grade accuracy with military efficiency, the P210 was the only one. The Swiss rejected the Browning P35 and any thoughts of a double-column magazine (yes, there was a prototype of the P210 that held 16 rounds) were rejected on the grounds of insufficient accuracy for the former, and ergonomics for the latter. Second only to reliability, the Swiss wanted a pistol that would shoot like nobody’s business and that’s exactly what they got. Until (again) the modern crop of military-grade sidearms the P210 was indisputably the finest such ever fielded. Not that this is relevant, because it was only ever intended to be used with standard ball ammo, but it was probably the only box-stock military handgun prior (again) to the first SIG P220 that would feed hollowpoint rounds with no alteration whatsoever. Not that it was designed or intended as such, but things just came together in that way for this handgun. Surely some angel sprinkled moondust on it when it was being developed. At some point a match version was released that, aside from adjustable sights, was utterly redundant because they were all capable of match-lighting accuracy. If I was still doing police work, and was forced to take an eyeball-shot on a hostage taker, and had to use a 1960s era semiauto pistol to do it, this would be the only one.

      Here’s why that’s important: I don’t even need to explain this to you. You can Google it for yourself. Do a search for vintage P210s for sale. If you can find one–you probably won’t (I know if I had one I would never, but never sell it not even to pay for chemotherapy or a new kidney)–you will find the price nothing less than shocking. It is and always has been a seller’s market for a P210. Given the near-impossibility of even finding an original one to buy, and the need to almost take out a second mortgage if you do, a quality modern incarnation put out by SIG itself for anything less than two thousand bucks is a steal, and people will be lining up out the door to buy one. I’ll be in that line myself. I’d rather an original one, or that SIG were selling one that was a carbon copy of the original, but (twist my arm) I’ll settle! I’ll settle.

    2. I read the entire article and not once was the caliber mentioned. I know what caliber it is but I handle guns all the time but a beginner would look at this gun and not have any idea what caliber it is.

    3. Would it hurt for a retailer to at least give an estimate for the price, even if they don’t have it in stock? A reasonable range should be possible. The “Not In Stock” surely isn’t enough info.

    4. I’ve been wanting to ad a P210 Target to my collection, but have had trouble getting my hands on one. Now you ass the Standard, and I will have to have one of those as well.

      1. Does it kill ALL of you to do a 45 second Google search? I’ve never seen such a lazy bunch of whiny ass people in my life.

        $1,449.00 YOU’RE WELCOME!

    5. Shot one this past weekend from the Sig booth,have shot a 40 + year old German produced one in the past,the new Exeter produced one didn’t disappoint. Also got to try out the MPX integrally suppressed in 300 Blk.,both are “Guns I Want”.

      1. That CZ 75 SP01 is my favorite auto loader, CZ is no second place to sig, i have had custom shop P226 and that is hard to beat pistol, CZ doesn’t cost arm & leg and build great firearms

    6. Granted, the Sig P-210 is a top quality pistol in the $600 class. Since no price was given in the article, I’m assuming that at least 5 middlemen are adding profitsteps to the price.
