Sig Sauer has introduced the P229 SAO as the sixth pistol in its members-only Legion Series of firearms.
Chambered in 9mm, the hammer-fired Legion P229 SAO comes equipped with Sig’s X-Ray 3 day/night sight setup. This compact pistol is all metal with a proprietary Legion gray coated slide and frame; Sig Master Shop-inspired trigger; enhanced checkering on the front strap and under the trigger guard; and high checkered black G10 grips with a Legion medallion.
Like the five other Legion Series pistols, the Legion P229 SAO also sports a reduced and contoured beavertail. This allows for a higher grip but a reduced profile, which eliminates printing.
Developed with the input of elite professionals, the Legion Series is basically a program that aims to give buyers an exclusive experience. Anybody who buys a Legion Series firearm gets a thermo-mold carrying case; custom challenge coin; and access to Legion gear and swag.
“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,” said Tom Taylor, Sig’s Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales, 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.”
Shipping out with three 15-round magazines—or 10-rounders if necessary—the MSRP on the Sig Legion P220 SAO is $1,413. Specs are below.
