The DA/SA thing was never attractive to me (until I shot the P229 Legion) but I can see why it appeals to some shooters. I am, however, a big fan of single stack 9mm pistols. I like their relative slimness, their lighter weight and easy carriability (if that’s a word). Now jumping back into the 9mm single stack game is SIG SAUER with the reintroduction of the P225. Here’s their press release . . .
SIG SAUER® Reintroduces the P225 Platform
NEWINGTON, N.H. (November 5, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., has returned the venerable P225® pistol to its catalog and is now shipping the classic handgun to dealers and distributors.
The P225-A1 retains the exceptional look and feel of the original P225, but features an enhanced trigger and the precision manufacturing and quality from the state-of-the-art SIG SAUER® facility.
“We set out to re-create the fantastic ergonomics of the P225, but we also wanted to make the best P225 ever built,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Management for SIG SAUER, Inc. “While the original West German P225 was a fantastic pistol, the degree of precision and accuracy we can obtain now makes this the ultimate expression of the P225.”
The P225-A1 is a single-stack 9mm pistol with the time-tested double-action/single-action trigger system. A fully machined stainless steel slide is finished in the durable Nitron® finish. A hard coat anodized frame sports two-piece grips with the SIG mark medallion.
With a lineage as the long-time handgun of the West German police, and a popular concealed carry option in the American market, the P225-A1 is a time-tested performer. The slim slide profile and shorter barrel length is easy to carry yet retains the familiar controls of its full-size batterymate the P226®.
Featuring the accuracy, reliability and durability of all SIG SAUER products, the P225-A1 combines the elements of the company’s history with the cutting-edge manufacturing of modern day SIG.
The P225-A1 is now shipping and available at SIG SAUER dealers across the country.
