SIG-Sauer

NOTE: In the past, some IMFDB users have mis-spelled "SIG-Sauer" as "Sig Sauer". "Sig Sauer" is not the correct spelling; "SIG" is an acronym for Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft ("Swiss Industrial Society" in German), and thus, all three letters should be capitalized. Also, it is preferred that IMFDB users put a hyphen between "SIG" and "Sauer".


About

The German company SIG Sauer GmbH was formed in the late 1970's when the firearm-manufacturing division of Swiss conglomerate SIG (Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft, or Swiss Industrial Company) acquired and partnered with the German firm Sauer & Sohn. The SIG-Sauer line of handguns began in 1975 with the SIG Sauer P220. Prior to World War II, Sauer had been primarily a maker of shotguns and hunting rifles. During the war, they produced a handgun, the Sauer 38H, but afterwards had retreated from this market. With SIG as their partner/owner, the new company SIG Sauer returned to the business of manufacturing handguns.

American corporation Sterling Arms started to manufacture imported P230 in 1975 (whole two years before SIG-Sauer's own line started!), but exact number of guns manufactured is unknown and was probably very low. In 1985, after Sterling Arms departure from the market, SIGARMS Inc. was created as the American branch of SIG in Tysons Corner, Virginia to import the P220 and P230.

In 1987, SIGARMS moved to Herndon, Virginia, and in 1990 moved to Exeter, New Hampshire to accommodate new manufacturing. In October 2000, SIG, wanting to leave the firearm market and focus on its packaging operations, sold off their firearm subsidiaries to Michael Lüke and Thomas Ortmeier, including Sauer, Blaser, Hammerli, and of course, SIGARMS Inc. and SIG-Sauer GmbH. SIG's own remaining firearm divisions were also sold, creating Swiss Arms. These companies are now a part of the Lüke & Ortmeier Gruppe.

On October 1, 2007, SIGARMS officially changed their name to SIG Sauer Inc. The two SIG Sauers, while organizationally distinct, largely focus on the same pistols. Many weapons from SIG Sauer Inc.'s European sister companies are still imported into the United States by them today.
