    Just announced at Shot Show this month. I don't get it, they take a historically significant pistol from the past, the original P-210 and turn it into an 8 round CCW. I'm sure it will sell to all the Sig Fanatics. I believe they have priced it at around $1,200 bucks.

    It's obvious the CEO of Sig Sauer came from Kimber. Kimber has like 10 separate size pistols, but each has at least ten variations. Also, expect a whole new series of P320's. sig-sauer-p210-carry.jpg

    I saw a video that said it has an aluminum frame which I guess is good for conceal carry, but I just don't think there is going to be that many who will carry this. I just see the 210 as a range/target pistol.

    Well, here's the original Sig 210:

    ETA - that isn't the original but it kinda sorta looks like the original. Except for the mag release and the safety. And probably a dozen other things I'm missing. But the shape is the same for the most part.......

    I'm not seeing a lot of similarities between this and the one in the OP

    They discontinue the P225 so they can up sell that as a single stack carry gun because everyone needs a P210 trigger on a carry gun

    I think they are very similar, in controls, trigger, grip shape and size, slide profile. Biggest different is the Carry is obviously shorter and has no beavertail.

    I just don't see the appeal for carry.

    The slide being back in the OP makes it look more different but you may be right.

    Probably a good gun but I'd have named it something else.

    Not the brightest idea out of SIG.

    I think the 210 "American" is OK for what it is. It's not a real P210. But that Standard seems to me would be a very nice range gun. Or house gun, if you like full size SA autos.

    But this version...just, no. If I want an 8 round 9mm single action metal carry gun, I've got a Star BM and a Zastava 88. If I want an 8 round DA metal gun, I've got a 3913.

    The they wanted to make this new "210" into a carry gun, they should have shortened the barrel, bobbed the grip to 6 or 7 round capacity, put on a nice set of sights, but kept the lines & decent wood grips of the first 2 iterations of the new "210". They seem to have lost the few things I like about the new "210" and buggered this version up thoroughly.

    I admit to being a 210 fan since the '80s. I've owned several, currently Swiss, German, and American models. I don't carry a 210, but if I wanted to, an alloy framed version would seem like a good option. Much as I like the 210s though, I'm not a likely buyer for the Carry model.

    That being said, in a world awash in inexpensive, plastic framed, high capacity, striker fired mini-pistols, I don't think the 210 Carry is going to be a big sales hit. But then I never thought Glock would amount to anything either;)

    I think the P210 Carry grips are horrible. Why are so thick at the top, particularly on the right side?

    It will sell just fine. There are plenty of fanboys to scoop up whatever limited production run they make.
    Some will even carry it just to be "that guy". Kind of like the HK P7. It's not really a good carry gun by any objective measure, but people still tote them.

    I like it. It's probably very accurate, has an excellent trigger, and can be carried cocked and locked.

    I look at the stuff Sig USA makes and just have to laugh.

    This P210 Carry abomination is no different.

    Not everything is for everyone Mr. Slugo.

    For once, instead of all the posturing by the know-it-all big shots and those who always just have to let everybody know the fault they find in everything that doesn't appeal to them, I'd like to see everyone instead be greatful for the great many firearm choices that we have.

    But I think I have a better chance of seeing Hillary sitting on a boulder wearing a blaze orange jumpsuit with her hubby Slick Willie breaking rocks with a sledgehammer beside her, LOL.

    Honestly when the Sig P210 "American" was announced who didn't see something like this happening?

    The original P210 is a real Classic. I would love to have that one!
