SIG Sauer’s best handgun is the iconic P226, according to The Truth About Guns. The P226 is SIG Sauer’s original handgun, and while other manufacturers have switched to plastic frames, SIG Sauer continues to construct the P226 with a durable yet lightweight frame made of polymer.
The P226’s reputation for accuracy and ease of handling makes it popular with competitive shooters. Its lack of a safety means it is an excellent choice for life or death situations where individuals must act quickly. This is one reason numerous law enforcement agencies all over the globe use the P226 including the United States Navy SEALs and the British Armed Forces. For individual gun owners, its size and weight make it better suited for a holster than a carry-and-conceal.
