Founded in 1853 as the Swiss Wagon Factory, SIG Sauer would eventually become one of the world’s largest and most prestigious firearm companies, known for their guns’ formidable combination of German and Swiss engineering.
When the Swiss Federal Ministry of Defense began its search for a new rifle, the Swiss Wagon Factory developed the Prelaz-Burnand rifle, which drastically outstripped the effective shooting distance of the competition, and in 1860 the Swiss Wagon Factory became the Swiss Industrial Company.
In 1949, SIG began producing the SIG P210 pistol for the Swiss military. While working on its follow up, SIG partnered with German gun maker J.P. Sauer & Sohn (renowned for their shotguns and hunting rifles), and in 1975 the first SIG Sauer pistol was born. The SIG Sauer P220 semi-automatic became an instant hit, known for its simple design and bulletproof reliability.
In 1985, Sigarms Inc., the American branch of SIG, was established with the express purpose of importing SIG Sauer guns for the U.S. market. By 1992, Sigarms had supplemented its core business of SIG imports with the production of the Sig Sauer P229 compact pistol.
By 2007 Sigarms had reverted to the beloved SIG Sauer name, and today SIG Sauer guns—including pistols, rifles and shotguns—are revered worldwide for their elite Swiss and German pedigree, which continues to grace SIG Sauer firearms with unparalleled quality and reliability.
