The P226 is the pistol that set the standard by which all other combat handguns are measured. Designed as SIG’s entrant in the military trials to replace the 1911, today the P226 is in use by the U.S. Navy SEALs, Federal agents, and numerous law enforcement agencies including the Texas Rangers, Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Michigan State Police to name a few. The exceptional ergonomics and balance make this full-size pistol easy to handle. The ASE features an alloy frame and a stainless steel slide and finish which gives it the look of a stainless steel pistol without the added weight and cost. It also features a durable, lightweight aluminum alloy beavertail with custom stainless PVD finish. Additionally, the pistols features front cocking serrations, a short reset trigger, custom walnut grips, and SIGLITE night sights.
