New from SIG AIR, the airgun brand of SIG Sauer, comes the precision Super Target air pistol: a 4,5mm/.177 single-shot, single-stroke pneumatic air pistol, along with the new line of pellets from SIG AIR the Super Target makes for the perfect entry-level air pistol for 10m target competition
Just announced by SIG AIR – the airgun and airsoft line of SIG Sauer, Inc. – the SIG Sauer Super Target precision air pistol aspires to be the perfect entry-level tool for the well-known olympic discipline of ISSF 10 meter air pistol shooting.
Reminiscent of the lines of the P210 Target – a modern incarnation of one of the world's finest handguns ever – the SIG Sauer Super Target air pistol is manufactured in Italy by Chiappa Firearms, entirely out of metal with custom wood grips, it's 11" (28 cm) long overall and features a 7.5" (19 cm) rifled barrel for increased accuracy, for an overall weight of 2.5 lbs (1,13 kg).
A single-shot, short-stroke pneumatic pistol, the SIG Sauer Super Target requires no CO2 canister to operate: simply release the slide by pulling the hammer back, while simultaneously pulling the slide up and over until completely open, then insert a single 4,5mm/.177 pellet in the breech, close it, and the SIG Sauer Super Target is ready to fire.
Offering a muzzle velocity of 400 feet per second (about 121 meters per second), the SIG Sauer Super Target air pistol also sports desirable features such as a fixed front post and micrometric adjustable rear sight and a crisp, adjustable two-stage Match-grade trigger. Each SIG Sauer Super Target air pistol is sold in a padded, molded polymer premium pistol case.
