The SIG SAUER P210 is by far my favorite handgun that they have ever produced in the history of ever. The gun is an absolute work of art, with internal rails and an extremely low bore axis. The trigger is amazing as well. The problem til now has been that the P210 handguns have been manufactured in Germany and imported in the United States. Limited runs and an import slowdown have made the guns hard to find and very expensive, Now, though, for the first time, SIG is manufacturing the P210 in the United States…and with some minor improvements . . .
The biggest difference between the German and the American P210s is the locking system. The previous version used a 1911-esque locking system with a series of lugs on the barrel that interfaced with some corresponding cuts in the slide. For the American version SIG SAUER decided to go with a locking system more like that of the rest of the Classic P2XX line with a 90 degree shoulder on the chamber. This is slightly cheaper to produce, but doesn’t detract from the shooting experience in the least.
The P210 will be offered in two varieties to start out: a target version for about $1,350 and a standard version for around $1,200. The main difference: the target version will have some nicer grips and a longer barrel.
