SIG SAUER® Offers Selection of P220® Pistols in 10mm

NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 12, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., introduces the classic P220® single-stack pistol chambered in the powerful 10mm Auto cartridge.

The SIG P220 has now been paired with 10mm ammunition to deliver increased energy, longer-range capability in a proven hunting round.

“A 10mm version of the legendary P220 is at the top of the list of ‘most requested products’ from fans of our products,” said Jeff Creamer, Executive Director and General Merchandise Manager for SIG SAUER, Inc. “We heard the demand, and created a P220 that will make full use of the cartridge’s potential.”

Four different models of 10mm P220 will be offered, each featuring a 5˝ barrel to maximize the internal ballistics of the 10mm round. From duty carry to self-defense to wild game hunting, the P220 10mm delivers the ballistic performance fans of the cartridge need in a pistol.

The Match Elite Reverse Two-Tone P220 features the Elite Beavertail, a stainless finish with front cocking serrations. Black G-10 Piranha grips and adjustable match sights round out the package. This is the DA/SA model of the 10mm series.

The Stainless Elite P220 and Stainless Elite Nitron® P220 are single-action only P220 pistols, and also feature the Elite Beavertail. SIGLITE® night sights and front cocking serrations come standard. The Stainless Elite is done up with a natural stainless finish and Rosewood grips, while the Stainless Elite Nitron features a durable Nitron finish and black G-10 Piranha grips.

The Hunt Ready P220 is a single-action only pistol, also features the Elite Beavertail and front cocking serrations. The Hunt Ready P220 comes ready for the field with the SIG SAUER Romeo1 mini red-dot sight installed, black G-10 Piranha grips and a Kryptek® Highlander camo pattern finish.

All 10mm P220 pistols feature the rugged design and premier quality that elite military units, top law enforcement agencies, and demanding shooters worldwide have come to expect from SIG SAUER.


  1. Hate to be the pisser of parades, but I’ve got my doubts. The P220 has a notorious weak point, the take down lever, and service guns usually require them to be replaced every 5k rounds. They supposedly fixed this with the P220 Combat style lever (rated for 15-20k rounds) but never widely distributed to the rest of the P220 line. If this new 10mm variant gets the regular take down (which I’m suspecting), there will be problems. If Sig did their homework and re-engineered some parts to take on the 10mm, i’ll be buying two!

  2. A little more of this from various gun makers and ammunition manufacturers may start offering some really good self defense ammo in 10MM.
