Most people don’t know about SIG SAUER’s commemorative engraving program. Heck, I didn’t know about it until Kevin shoved one of the sample handguns under my nose. The idea behind the scheme is to give back a little bit to military units, law enforcement organizations, and other pro-gun groups by providing them with a unique and custom-engraved firearm to commemorate their service or other events. Oh, and did I mention that with the military / LEO discount, it can actually come out cheaper than buying a gun off the shelf? Make the jump for the presser . . .
NEWINGTON, N.H. (June 17, 2014) — The SIG SAUER® Commemorative Engraving Program allows qualified units, departments, or organizations to proudly display past or current service, membership, pride or achievements with a customized firearm.
