SIG Sauer just announced that the eagerly awaited P210 Carry is shipping to retailers in the United States: paying homage to the foundational craftsmanship of its forerunner, the new P210 Carry maintains the features, weight, and balance of an ideal carry handgun!
Almost two years after the first prototypes were showcased at the 2020 edition of the SHOT Show, in Las Vegas, the eagerly awaited SIG Sauer P210 Carry 9mm Luger semi-automatic pistol has finally been released and is now shipping to retailers in the United States.
Definitely one of the most distinctive and unique carry-oriented handguns to have been launched in the past few years, the new P210 Carry retains the lineage of the original Swiss-made P-210 – arguably one of the most elegant service pistols of the 20th Century – while infusing the original design with all the most desirable features that modern-day shooters require from a 24/7, high-end concealed carry weapon.
SIG Sauer's new P210 Carry retains quite a lot of the original P-210, last but not least the signature reverse rail design of the machined stainless steel slide – which is however shorter and smoother than the original, featuring a full matte black Nitron finish, front and rear serrations, and a set of SIGLITE night sights.
Another classic feature of the original P-210 design that the new SIG Sauer P210 Carry pistol retains is the single-action only, hammer-fired trigger, with a short, smooth travel and a light, crisp release, one of the best in the history of firearms industry and still highly appreciated by target shooting enthusiasts who are very fond of both the original P-210 and its modern reproductions manufactured by SIG Sauer.
The frame of the SIG Sauer P210 Carry pistol is precision-machined out of 7075-T6 aircraft-grade lightweight aluminum alloy, finished in matte black, and is extremely smooth, without an accessory rail to speak of, but with a squared, checkered "Combat"-style trigger guard.
The grip features a set of dark grey, very gripping G10 panels and a good set of fine front strap and backstrap serrations. The magazine release catch, the slide stop lever and the frame-mounted manual safety are well-dimensioned for easy and comfortable handling.
Standing in at 197 mm / 7.75" in overall length, and weighing in at 822 grams (29 oz), the new SIG Sauer P210 Carry is remarkably shorter than the original P-210; the reduced overall width – 36 mm / 1.44" – makes it almost effortless to carry without printing.
SIG Sauer's new P210 Carry comes with a 104 mm / 4.1" long Nitron-finished, carbon steel barrel, and with two 8-rounds, single-stack magazines. A smooth, beveled design for easy drawing and holstering, lighter weight, ideal grip purchase, and excellent trigger ensure that the P210 Carry will deliver a premium shooting experience for a carry gun.
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the SIG Sauer P210 Carry hasn't been announced yet, but a $1.300 price mark had been announced back at the 2020 SHOT Show, for the US market.
