SIG Sauer earlier this month held their second ever Freedom Days event, saving the first day for employee appreciation. 

We ventured to the SIG Academy Shooting Facility and all-new 40,000 sq. ft. Experience Center in New Hampshire to check out the event. As the first Freedom Days was held earlier this year in Arizona, we knew the second installment would be a bit different, but we didn't know exactly how different until we walked into the "pre-event" held on the Thursday before the big weekend – carved out for SIG's more than 2,000 New Hampshire area employees. 

"Today was all about saying, OK, our employees work so hard, and we've had tremendous success over the past several years – SIG has grown to be the largest small arms supplier in the world – and these are the people that make it happen," Tom Taylor, SIG's chief marketing officer, explained to Guns.com. "Our CEO is so driven – Ron Cohen – and he drives this company into some really special things and so, why wouldn't we want to come out and say thank you to our employees? And come out and just have a great day of work, if you will, and enjoy SIG Freedom Days, Employee Edition."

Shutting down the line and paying the employees for their time, SIG had more than 40 firearm models set up across four ranges, with instructors on hand to give pointers and RSOs busy loading mags and resetting targets.

Pistols on the line included the P365-380, P365 XMacro, P322 rimfire, P320 X5 MAX, P320 AXG Pro, P320 M17 & M18, P210 Carry & Target, P226 ZEV, P226 Pro Cut, P229 PRO, P229 Legion SAO, P220 Legion .45, P320 Spectre Comp, and P320 XTen 10mm. Importantly, some of these models have only been introduced in the past year or so and some – the P210 Target for example – are super hard to get.

It is not often that you run into both a SIG P210 Carry and its P210 Target brother on the line.

What's not to like about a P220 Legion .45?

Never underestimate a Classic
P322 at SIG Freedom Days In New Hampshire October 2022
The P322 is a heck of a lot of fun on the range, especially with its 20-round flush-fit magazine.

SIG made sure there were lots of optics and cans in use, because who doesn't like a quieter and more accurate range experience?
Mrs. Lin at SIG Freedom Days In New Hampshire October 2022
A long-time SIG employee of over 32 years, she has a limited-edition employee run of the M17 but has never shot it, so the Freedom Days experience gave her the opportunity for a little trigger time with the platform. 


When it came to rifles, SBRs, and carbines, attendees could get their hands on the new M400 DH3 competition gun, the MCX Spear LT in several flavors, the MCX Rattler, and variants of the pistol-caliber MPX. Then, of course, there were Cross bolt guns in both standard and PRS configurations and in .308 and 6.5 CM. Heck, SIG even had their Xpedition crossbows out there.

We look forward to the next Freedom Days event, rumored to be headed West again sometime shortly after the New Year. 


Of course, the event was open to the public for the rest of the weekend, and the turnout was brisk.

Our tip to those who had to pay to attend is that they should check out SIG's open career opportunities – they are looking to add to the family.
