The’s a new SIG SAUER P225, the P225-A1

| 7 November 2015

Sig P225-A1
Sig Says:

The P225-A1 retains the exceptional look and feel of the original P225, but features an enhanced Short Reset Trigger and the precision manufacturing and quality from the state-of-the-art SIG SAUER facility. The P225-A1 is a single-stack 9mm pistol with the time-tested double-action/single-action trigger system. A fully machined stainless steel slide is finished in the durable Nitron finish. A hard coat anodized frame sports two-piece grips with the SIG mark medallion.

With a lineage as the long-time handgun of the West German police, and a popular concealed carry option in the American market, the P225-A1 is a time-tested performer. The slim slide profile and shorter barrel length is easy to carry yet retains the familiar controls of its full-size batterymate the P226.

Featuring the accuracy, reliability and durability of all SIG SAUER products, the P225-A1 combines the elements of the company’s history with the cutting-edge manufacturing of modern day SIG.

As much as I like Sig’s, I’m just not sure where this one fits into the market right now. Not only does Sig have the P320 Compact, with fairly similar dimensions, but this will be competing with the S&W M&P Shield and GLOCK 43 for carry time, and I just don’t see that happening. It’s a little bigger, a little heavier and a fair bit more expensive.

It’s a lovely handgun, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not sure I’ll be seeing that many of them.
