~ Sig Sauer P226 ~
The SIG P226 is a full-sized, service-type pistol made by SIG Sauer. It is chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .22 Long Rifle. It is essentially the same basic design of the SIG P220, but developed to use higher capacity, staggered-column magazines in place of the single-column magazines of the P220. The P226 itself has spawned further sub-variants; the P228 and P229 are both compact versions of the staggered-column P226 design. The SIG Sauer P226 and its variants are in service with numerous law enforcement and military organizations worldwide.
The P226 was designed for entry into the Service Small Arms Program that was held by the US Army in 1984 to find a replacement for the M1911A1. Only the Beretta 92F and the SIG P226 satisfactorily completed the trials.
Eventually it was adopted by the US Navy.
