SIG-Sauer P226

SIG-Sauer P226

(MANUAL) SIG Sauer P226 Manual (.pdf)

P226 appeared in 1983 in 9x19mm Luger (since 1998 offerd also in .357Sig and .40SW). Speaking simply, P226 is a high capacity reincarnation of the SigSauer P220. Key features of the P226 - dual-stack magazine for 15 9mm rounds and a firing pin safety. Designed to compete in the XM9 pistol trials that sought a successor to the Colt M 1911 that had served the US military for several decades. Both the SIG-Sauer P 226 and the eventual winner, the Beretta 92 passed each requirement during the trials, beating out offerings from Colt, Ruger, Heckler & Koch and Glock. The P 226 actually represented a lower cost per unit, but Beretta's cheaper accessory cost made the Beretta the winner in terms of overall cost.
Nevertheless, the P 226 found favor with the US Navy Sea Air Land (SEAL) unit, which adopted it as its official sidearm. Military and law enforcement agencies around the world also adopted the P 226 for duty use.
