Remember our coverage of the P210 last year? Me too. Followed immediately by Sig not shipping them. Catching up with SIG this year, they promised me they are both 1) real and 2) shipping right now. The new P210 is 100% American made, and sure to get you hot and bothered if you like target pistols. I still feel about it now exactly like I did at SHOT 2017.

One of the true stars of the releases at SHOT Show was the SIG P210, re-released in all its glory. The new version shows its lineage to the original P210 Military/Target pistol in every line. Coming from a heritage of legendary accuracy, the P210 did not disappoint. I have been very clear how I generally feel about measuring pistol group sizes for accuracy, but I will make an exception for this pistol.

Picking the gun up, it is the closest to a combat/target pistol hybrid I have ever seen. The grips look unorthodox, but it feels like it molds to your hand when you pick it up. I shot the 6-inch model, though it is available in a 5-inch as well. The targets at SIG range day were too close for a pistol that shoots this well. By the end of my 10 round magazine, I was trying to shoot the bolt out holding the target to the stand at 20 meters, and succeeding far beyond what I should have for just having picked it up.
The trigger is one of the best pistol triggers I have ever fired, and that includes custom 2011-style race guns. Its pretty hard to get me excited about a single stack 9mm that is too big to conceal, but this pistol has done so. I can’t wait to take one of these out and shoot it at some long distance. The 9mm is very smooth, but since we are talking about essentially a target pistol, any thoughts on this gun in .357 SIG? Now THAT would give this pistol some legs!
