NEWINGTON, N.H., (June 16, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce a two-volume Vickers Guide series featuring SIG SAUER pistols, submachine guns, rifles, and machine guns. Vickers Guide is a collector quality assortment of books covering a wide variety of firearms with content that has been sourced and curated by Larry Vickers, a twenty-year U.S. Army Special Operations Veteran.
“Weare honored to be the first firearms manufacturer featured by Vickers Guide, and excited about the release of SIG SAUER (Volume 1). The book chronicles the company’s history from our beginnings as a German arms maker in 1751 and Swiss wagon factory in 1853, to becoming the premier American firearms manufacturer that we are today,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The content in this Vickers Guide is exceptional and will take the reader on a historical journey of SIG SAUER through the development and modernization of our firearms. The guide takes a deep dive into the iconic P210, chronicles the development of the P365 to become the top-selling handgun in America, and charts the evolution of the P250 to the P320 to ultimately become the M17 and the official sidearm of the U.S. Military, and so much more.”
