SIG just dropped two new air pistols based upon their popular P320 and P229 handguns. Aside from being fun for general plinking and target practice, they’re actually nice training tools as well. Mimicking the size, weight and controls of the real thing, these SIG air pistols allow you to train in your back yard or even your garage or basement. Plus, they’re a heck of a lot cheaper to shoot, even compared to .22 LR.

SIG 320-XCARRY CO2 Air Pistol

P320-XCARRY CO2 Air Pistol

The P320-XCARRY Air Pistol is a CO2 powered air gun that fires 4.5mm steel BBs. It’s geared toward plinking but the blowback action, ambi safeties and slide catch that mimic the real gun make it a great training tool, too. It uses a 21-round magazine that drops like the real P320 and the gun even field strips like the real thing. The P320-XCARRY is optics cut for the SIG AIR Reflex Sight as well.

Features:

  • Powerful Blowback System with Locking Slide
  • Aluminum Slide with Optics Cut Accepts SIG AIR Reflex Sight
  • Ambidextrous Thumb Safeties and Slide Catches
  • 21-rd CO2 Magazine with Locking Follower for Easy Reloading
  • Durable Nylon Polymer X-Grip Module with Picatinny Accessory Rail
  • X-Flat Trigger with 90 Degree Break
  • Realistic Field Stripping
  • MSRP: $140
SIG P229 CO2 Air Pistol

P229 CO2 Air Pistol

The P229 CO2 Air Pistol mimics the P229 and actually has the identical weight, balance and controls of the real thing. Like the P320-XCARRY, it’s optics cut for the the SIG AIR Reflex Sight. It operates in double and single action with a working decocking lever. The P229 Air Pistol has a drop-free 16-round magazine and unlike the P320, will take both .177 caliber pellets or BB’s. It’s even threaded to take a dummy supressor or other muzzle device.

  • Full Metal Construction Provides Realistic Weight of 2.2lbs
  • Optics Ready Slide Accepts SIG AIR Reflex Sight (sold separately)
  • Patented Toolless Cam-Lever Quick-Change CO2 System
  • SA/DA Trigger with Functional Decocker/Safety
  • 1-rd Drop-Free Magazine Accepts Both Lead Pellets and Steel BBs
  • Rifled Steel Barrel with 14mm CCW Threaded Muzzle and Thread Protector
  • MSRP: $120

    • Here’s a wild idea for your enjoyment… next time READ the article before commenting about it. (Hint: there are separate descriptions of the P320 and the P229)

    • Yes sir. Ever since that first ammo shortage I’ve bought pellet guns for me and some of the family. I haven’t shot a .22 in years. I own three .22s and a stockpile of ammo.

  1. BBs must have come a long way. I dont think the ones i used to shoot would be able to go in a magazine. Maybe I’m confused

      • I started with a Daisy air rifle, crumpled up aluminum foil, stuck a pin trough the foil with about 1/2 inch of pin protruding, carefully pressed it into the end of the barrel, and fired at the dart board.

    • “BBs must have come a long way.”

      Pellets sure have.

      There are air guns with velocities pushing 1,000 FPS, if not more.

      They can, and have, killed…

      • My beeman when fired has a loud crack as the pellet leaves the barrel. Might as well use a 22 as it is just as loud. Sucks as that negates what I wanted it for, quietly shooting squirrels. Neighbors feeds them and I trap and haul their asses off. Would be easier to shoot and bury them.

        • My 40 year old Beeman R1 in .177 has dropped many pests over the years. It’s certainly more quiet than my even older Sheridan pneumatic air rifle.
          The R1 is a beautiful rifle with its blued steel, and hand-cut checkering on the Monte Carlo stock. I’ve got a 4x scope on it. I have several firearms, but the R1 is my favorite even though it’s an airgun.

  2. I’m not sure who is more moronic…the idiots who make toy guns to look like real guns…or the idiots who paint real guns up to look like toys.

      • Believe it or not, there was a time when people could tell the difference between a toy and a real gun simply by looking at it…and we kinda need to get back to that.

          • Hence why pointing anything that might even vaguely resemble a weapon at a cop is a profoundly not-very-good idea.

            Hell, don’t do it to anyone in general, because it’s legally considered criminal assault and you can’t always tell at a glance who might be capable of responding to a threat with lethal force.

    • LazrBeam,

      Why leave BB guns out of discourse? A BB version of a centerfire pistol is a fantastic training platform at a tiny fraction of the cost of training on the centerfire version. That is very noteworthy.

    • “If there is no gun powder, is it a gun?”

      As far as cops are concerned, *zero* legal difference…

      • These should be popular with the “refugee” teens in NY that are getting tired of pointing the all-too-common Glock bb-gunms at cops as they’re ignoring directives ( maybe dey din do Engrish?)
        And I’d probably do the same as the cops did if some dumbass, kid or not, pointed what looks like a real gun at me – parents, pull your heads out !

  3. But will Sig charge $40 for additional magazines?

    On a more serious note: why does Sig charge $600 or more for the centerfire versions of these pistols when they somehow manage to still make a profit selling these BB versions for under $200? Any increase in material strength for centerfire pistols cannot possibly generate anywhere near an extra $400 in manufacturing costs. (The answer probably boils down to simple capitalism: Sig charges $400 more for the centerfire versions of these pistols simply because they can and customers pay it.)

    • … good point on the extra magazines, you’ll need extras for at least the P229 version with its ONE ROUND capacity. Hopefully it wont be as fussy about loading technique as their P322 magazines have proven to be.

      • It’s 16 rounds for bb’s. Maybe the 1 is a typo, or maybe that’s the capacity when you use pellets.

    • Maybe these are machined out of Lead-loy instead of high strength steel…..cheaper raw material and tooling lasts 20 times longer, plus, no expensive heat treating.

  4. Air guns are a great way to train with. You can use them in your holster for your real firearm, and practice your draw, sight alignment and trigger pull.

  5. Interesting but not a fan myself. I prefer laser training cartridge for dry fire practice and then I am using same exact gun and trigger action to practice with. I wonder though how the DA/SA trigger compares on one of these to the real deal. Tha SA and DA trigger are really nice on my P226 with DA being smooth and no stacking. I like to practice DA a lot. Glad SIG made these though for those interested.

  6. Point one at a law enforcement officer. You’ll be dead. Darwin may have been on to something..

  7. Banned in New Jersey as “assault weapons” because they hold more than 10 rounds.
    I’m serious. In New Jersey, air guns are categorized as “firearms,” so any air gun that holds more than 10 rounds is an “assault firearm” or “assault weapon.”
    And if the air gun has a built-in “silencer,” as most adult air rifles do these days, then it’s double-plus-ultra banned in NJ as an illegal “silenced firearm.”
    You can’t make this stuff up!
    And if the .177 air gun pellets are hollow-points, that’s another felony.
