Sig Sauer is one of the biggest small arms manufacturers in the world, partially because it specializes in a few areas of handgun development. When it comes to concealed carry handguns, Sig Sauer has a large assortment of concealed carry handguns to choose from, making it one of the best options if you are looking for a concealed carry gun. Here are a few of the best Sig Sauer concealed carry handguns.
1911 Fastback Nightmare Carry
Sig Sauer has a long history of developing firearms that law enforcement uses. The Sig Sauer 1911 Fastback Nightmare Carry is the newest version of the famed 1911 pistol that law enforcement has carried for a long time. This model is specifically designed for carrying and can be concealed relatively easily with the right holster. At 7.7 by 1.4 by 5.5 inches, it is relatively small but packs enough punch for self-defense purposes.
Another popular option for concealed carry is the Sig Sauer P320-M18. It is a modified version of the M-17 but maintains the same level of accuracy. It is roughly the same size as the 1911 Fastback making it a comparable alternative for concealed carry. The P320-M18 has upgraded sights to include a rear nightsight, making it more useful than some other options.
The Sig Sauer P225 is specifically designed for concealed carry situations in response to Sig Sauer’s long reputation of having large guns that did not work for concealed carry. The most notable traits about the P225 are its weight and accuracy. It weighs nearly 30 ounces, which may be a problem for a lot of people. 30 ounces is pretty heavy for a concealed weapon, but many do manage well with it. The trade-off for the weight is accuracy. Many concealed carry firearms are designed to be lightweight, which means the shooter must handle more of the recoil. Having a heavier P225 makes it more accurate on top of its other accuracy enhancing features.
If you like the 1911 but don’t like the size, try the Sig Sauer P238. It is largely considered to be a pocket-sized version of the 1911 and one of the best pocket-sized handguns available. TO help with accuracy, the trigger has a lightweight, single-action design that is easy to squeeze, preventing a lot of travel when pulling the trigger. Its best feature is its small size, making it exceptionally easy to conceal. There are multiple variations of it as well for more customization. For example, the P238 fires 0.380 ACP rounds while the P938 SAS fires 9mm rounds for increased power.
