Quick! Name a gun that’s less accurate than you are. Yes, that’s a trick question. But let’s face it: most modern handguns are far more accurate than their shooter’s ability to capitalize on the gun’s accuracy relative to another similar weapon. In other words, it’s all about operator skill rather than mechanical design. Shhhh. Don’t tell that to the manufacturers, who are more than happy to play up their weapon’s accuracy in search of street cred and sales. For example, the return of the SIG SAUER P210, now with added legendarynessosityhooditude Oh wait. It’s a target pistol. That’s different, right? (Make the jump for the 411 from gunsforsale.com.)
The [what’s old is] new 9mm, single-action P210 will come in two basic models, with one having drift adjustable post and notch sights. The other model will feature adjustable target sights (see photo). Both version of the new P210 will feature the Sig black Nitron [QPQ] finish, manual safety, and a “US-style” [thumb-activated] magazine release. The original P210 utilized a heel mag release.” The new rear target sight has a 3-position slider that adjusts for three different target distances.
According to Sig Sauer, this suits “static-precision disciplines or PPC 1500″, because the shooter can quickly re-zero the P210 for three different ranges. That’s a smart feature we’d like to see on other target pistols.
