Réplique P226 Airsoft
Historical presentation of the Sig Sauer P226
Each firearms manufacturer has its own handgun reference. For Ruger it's the Mk. III, for H&K it's the USP and for Sig Sauer it's the P226. The P226 was developed in the mid-1980s as a competitive model in response to a U.S. Army tender. The P226 is an improvement on the P220, which was the German Army's sidearm. It is a one-piece pistol chambered in .45.
SIG Sauer was looking to evolve to keep up with the 9mm trend. Thus, SIG Sauer decided to develop the P226, which is a double-stacked 9mm handgun. Although the P226 failed to win the coveted government contract at the time, the P226 still became the primary handgun of the Navy SEAL and Texas Rangers, among others, a few years later.
