Concealed carriers and fans of Sig Sauer’s line of handguns will be interested to get a closer look at the newest pistol to launch in the gun maker’s line: the P210 Carry. According to the manufacturer, the Sig Sauer P210 Carry design maintains the features of its full-size Swiss predecessor while offering new, compact options for gun owners focused on personal defense.
Knowledge of the Sig Sauer P210 Carry’s eventual arrival on the market has been swirling around the gun industry since SHOT Show 2020, when a prototype pistol was being shown at the gun maker’s booth. Now that it’s officially launched, it appears the P210 Carry will not disappoint those who appreciate the full-sized model and may bring in new fans as well.
Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, Sig Sauer, Inc., had the following to say about the manufacturer’s launch of the new gun: “The Sig P210 is regarded as one of the most legendary, reliable, and accurate firearms in the world; the P210 CARRY pays homage to the foundational craftsmanship of its forerunner while maintaining the features, weight, and balance of an ideal carry pistol. The alloy frame lightens the weight, the slim low-profile grips with wrap-around checkering allow for an ideal purchase, and the shortened slide features the hallmark P210 signature reverse rail design bringing the premium P210 shooting experience to a carry gun.”
Sig P210 Features
Sig Sauer designed the 9mm P210 Carry with an alloy frame to cut its overall weight—it weighs 29 ounces, empty—with a stainless steel slide and carbon steel barrel. The barrel is 4.1 inches, which is almost a full inch shorter than the P210 Target‘s barrel length and just over half an inch shorter than that of the original P210.
Every P210 Carry ships with SIGLITE night sights, an excellent factory feature for any gun but especially useful on a gun meant for personal defense. Both the frame and slide sport a Nitron finish; Nitron is a ferritic nitrocarburizing process that gives the firearm a hard finish for the purpose of protecting it from excessive wear and damage. It has a left-sided, lever thumbs safety. Forward and rearward cocking serrations come standard. The gun has an 8-round capacity (+1) and ships with two magazines.
