The P229 is a classic icon. Sig fans have finally had their dreams come true with the announcement of the much anticipated Legion Series P229 Single Action Only. I carried the 229 Double Action Only as a duty weapon. I would have paid full retail to get an SAO model. The higher grip, reduced profile and new trigger is going to give new life to a classic.

SIG’s Legion is an exclusive members-only access program available to owners of the SIG SAUER Legion Series of firearms. Upon registration of any Legion Series firearm, members receive a complimentary thermo-mold carrying case, a challenge coin matched to the firearm, exclusive access to Legion gear and merchandise, and receive exclusive communications from SIG SAUER and the Legion.

SIG SAUER SAO pistols are only available through the Legion Series. Each Legion P229 SAO pistol comes standard with three 15-round magazines (state-compliant 10-round magazines available.)

The SIG SAUER Legion Series P229 SAO pistol will be on display at the SIG SAUER Exhibition Booth (#6220) at the NRA Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, Friday, May 4th through Sunday, May 7th.
