Sig’s new ‘Gentleman’s Carry’ Piece

New Hampshire-based Sig Sauer on Thursday announced a new installment in its P210 series 9mm pistols, meant specifically for carry purposes.

As Sig fans can tell you, the P210 was the historic pistol that launched the company’s modern handgun line. Designed as the Swiss Army’s Pistole 49 just after WWII, the 210 has been a hot commodity in Europe for generations and has more recently been embraced on this side of the pond — though supply was far less than demand.

Danish contract Sig P210 Semi-Automatic Pistol (M49),9mm, 21-groove European walnut stock, crown HTK’ markings to the left side frame rail. Vintage military and border guard surplus specimens often command upwards of $3,000 on the commercial market.

The new P210 Carry, however, goes a different direction from the Target and Standard models, combining the lineage of its iconic Swiss predecessor with the “ideal characteristics and necessities the modern consumer expects in a carry pistol,” says Sig, who teased the gun as far back as the 2019 SHOT Show.

The new P210 Carry is, for sure, a “gentleman’s carry gun.”
