We had the good fortune of getting shown around the Sig booth by one of their PR guys, which was a lot of fun. Sig had some really neat guns at SHOT, so we’ll start with my favorite – the Sig .22 LR 1911.
I did ask, and their .22 is not made by Umarex. Apparently, Sig entered into a licensing contract with German Sport Guns, the company that makes/made the GSG-5, the now infamous MP5 clone in .22 LR. I handled the Sig at SHOT, didn’t get to shoot it, but it does feel pretty solid. 1911s in .22 LR seem to be kind of a thing this year at SHOT, but they didn’t get as much attention as the pocket 9mms because .22s aren’t as sexy as tiny little 9mm handguns. I wish that wasn’t the case, but it sadly is.
