Looking for an elite-level pistol that packs a punch? Shake hands with Sig Legion P220 10mm SAO.
The idea behind the LEGION series is to provide a pistol a cut above the original. Quite a feat, given the gun Sig Sauer has populated the line with are pretty extraordinary in their own rights.
The gunmaker recently expanded this premium line, good news for fans of the hard-hitting pistol cartridges. The newest edition, the Sig P220 LEGION 10mm SAO, which should certainly prove an extremely potent addition to the series. Most likely shootable, too. Given the LEGION P220 tips the scales at 44 ounces, the generally snappy cartridge should be tamed down a touch by the full-sized, hammer-fired pistol.
In addition to some nice touches, such as X-RAY3 Day/Night sights and ambidextrous manual safety, the 10mm LEGION P220 has a few other notable accouterments. These include a Legion Gray stainless steel slide and frame, solid steel guide rod, enhanced checkering on the front strap and under the trigger guard, front cocking serrations and black G-10 checkered grips. To doll it up a bit, Sig has included a LEGION medallion in the grips and LEGION Chevron engraved on the slide.
Pretty slick package.
However, the handgun will run you a pretty penny. Sig didn't release an MSRP, but a completely unscientific survey of online retailers found it selling for around $1,500.
