SIG SAUER is pleased to announce the honor of receiving the 2023 Gundie Award for “Most Innovative Brand of the Year.” The Gundies are an annual community-voted award to recognize top content creators and companies in the firearms industry. SIG SAUER is also proud to announce that Team SIG Pro Shooter Lena Miculek has been individually awarded the title of “Best Shooter.”

“On behalf of our more than 3,000 employees in New Hampshire, Arkansas, Oregon, and all over the world, we’d like to thank all of the Gundie Award voters for recognizing SIG SAUER as the Most Innovative Brand of the Year,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “Innovation is our passion, whether it be in firearms, electro-optics, ammo, suppressors, air guns or even training at the SIG SAUER Academy, and our new programs to get more people out and engaged in shooting, this is what we live for every day. This award is very meaningful because it is truly an end user vote, unlike many awards which are driven by advertising dollars or other contrived results, Taylor continued, so for all the voters that recognized SIG for the innovation award, we’d sincerely like to say thank you.”

In 2023, the Gundie Awards had over 150,000 active voters with more than 12 million votes cast throughout the month of January.

I’m perfectly happy with my Springfield Armory M1A.

Funny thing is, I never really wanted one until “Slick Willie” Clinton said I couldn’t have one. Bought it in early 1992 just after the start of the rumblings that resulted in the 1994 AWB.

You remember the AWB: the Assault Weapons Ban that didn’t ban any assault weapons. We’ve since become accustomed to laws that have a total disconnect from their titles. Kinda like the FOPA: the Firearms Owner Protection Act that screwed over a host of firearms owners.


DUH!!! The $1329 ($1000 street) Ruger SFAR in 7.62×51 at 6.8-7.3lbs in 16/20″ barrels beats the $4000ish Sig offering in 556/300/7.62×39 hands down. More punch for the buck, same/less weight, takesmost Mil-Spec AR15 stocks/triggers/handguards etc


Two thumbs down. All the grundies are, is a stinking popularity contest. Means Nothing!!! Wouldn’t buy a sig if it was the only firearm left on the shelves.
