    This has nothing to do with the Sig P210 Carry. WTF are you talking about?

    That’s just Drew’s passive-aggressive behavior. ;)

    It’s a nice looking gun, but not for me.

    If it shoots well, is accurate and reliable, I can see it as an alternative to a 9mm 1911. Even though I do like my current Sigs I realize some may be more invested in the classic German models but I just like well made pistols. There are things I actually prefer in my American Sigs over the German models, like grip size choice. I prefer the E2 grips on my double stack models. And if it's around the same price range as a Kimber or Colt 9mm I might just be interested in this. I can't really be offended at this offering because I have nothing to compare it with, never having handled a original P210.

    That is not the original SIG P210, that is a SIG Sauer P210.

    Guess I'll stay with a commander for my single stack . I can't see this new p210 offering anything special or a better choice as a carry pistol .

    It’s not even the original Sig Sauer P210, Andy. At least the German Mastershop version used the same design.

    The American version is pretty cheap feeling and uses a locking block to further cut costs.

    A very stylish carry gun - maybe if you have had your tuxedo tailored to fit a gun that size - otherwise it has no advantages at all. If you are worried about your carry gun being stylish, just carry a PPK.

    I have been reading up on the STI Staccato C as a possible SA 9mm for the range. If this proves to be reliable I could see this as another option to consider(for myself). If it is accurate and reliable I really don't care what they call it, I do like the looks better than what they are selling as the P210 now. I prefer my G26 for carry but nothing wrong with having a pistol that is fun to shoot at the range.

    I didn't use code; here's your answer directly from the source...whether it's a SIG P365, P320, or any other P series SIG that wasn't made in Germany, it wouldn't matter if it was made of solid 24k gold and shot FL grade diamonds, they're all garbage to some people, who never fail to let everyone know it.

    I shot one last Monday at sig range day. Great gun but I don't really get how it would be the best option for size, weight, capacity in the carry market.

    Here's the funny thing.... nobody loses their minds when someone posts 9mm 1911s. Pretty much the same concept. The whole "AmErICan sIgs aRe GaRBaGe" rhetoric is tired, and idiotic.

    Well, I'd take the p210 target in a heartbeat if the price wasn't so damn high. American or German.

    bac, Which part is considered the locking block in the American 210A?

    They aren't garbage, but the P210A is MUCH different from a quality and design standpoint than the Mastershop version, much less a Swiss model.

    That said, I've shot two of them now and they are accurate guns. If someone wants an accurate pistol for under $1500, the P210A Target is a good option. They just feel different than the others. I was fairly underwhelmed mainly due to comparing it to Swiss and German models.

    Its for the person on a budget who always wanted a P210, but couldn't afford one. For $1100-$1400 (depending on the variant), you get a gun that looks like a P210, but uses a cheaper design, cheaper parts, and different tolerances to keep costs down.

    If Sig starts offering the Mastershop models in this country again, there will be a huge price disparity, but the German models are well worth it.

    They use the the barrel locking block first introduced in the 1970's on the Sig Sauer P220. It simplifies the design and reduces manufacturing costs, which was one reason Sig Sauer introduced it 45 years ago.

    The Swiss and German P210's are different.

    Yeah, here's an original, unlike the one Tiger posted.

    I have a few. This is one of my best. From 1967...
