Manufacturer of high-quality firearms for military, law enforcement and commercial users. Best known for their "P" series of semi-automatic pistols (such as the P220, P226, P229, etc.), they also offer high-quality rifles.
Originally founded in 1853 as a wagon factory in Switzerland, by 1865 they were supplying rifles to the Swiss Army and the company's name was changed to Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft (SIG). In the 1970's SIG formed a partnership with J.P. Sauer & Sohn, GmbH of W. Germany, hence the SIG Sauer name. SIG SAUER has its U.S. headquarters in Exeter, New Hampshire, with over 280 employees.
