Sig Sauer kept the innovations rolling last week at the NRA’s Annual Meeting, unveiling the new Legion Series P229 SAO pistol.

An exclusive line provided by Sig Sauer, the Legion series was developed by Sig Sauer with input from elite shooters. The Legion P229 SAO is a 9mm, hammer-fired handgun boasting X-Ray 3 Day/Night Sights. The 3.9-inch barrel pistol touts an all-metal construction in a compact size with Legion-gray coated slide and frame. The pistol offers a Sig Master Shop flat trigger with enhanced checkering on the front strap and trigger guard. The pistol is topped off with high checkered black G10 grips and Legion medallion.

“The P229 is one of Sig Sauer’s classic pistols and is iconic amongst shooting enthusiasts. It is widely regarded as one of the best designed and proportioned pistols within the elite shooting community,” Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales at Sig Sauer, said in a press release. “We are really excited to introduce the much anticipated P229 SAO to our Legion Series because it was our Legion members that asked for this variation. The Legion Series P229 SAO pistol is the natural evolution of the shared mission of Sig Sauer and our Legion members – to never settle.”

Like the rest of the Legion series, the P229 provides a reduced and contoured beavertail, allowing for a higher grip. The Legion P229 SAO ships with a standard 15-round magazine, though state-compliant 10-round mags are also available.

The Legion series is an exclusive members-only access program. After registering any Legion Series firearm, members get a thermo-mold carrying case, challenge coin and access to Legion merch. The Legion P229 SAO is available from Sig Sauer with a price tag of $1,413.
