I'm contemplating purchasing one. Looking for comments good and bad from owners. How's the trigger pull, accuracy, is it better than the Sig 1911. Thanks.

Yes I have done a search but I didn't find a post that really focused on the P210. To be more specific I am looking for info on the newer model P210 Target model.

Most reports are stellar. I have one and have been thoroughly pleased with it. It is a great gun for the money.

I had a Legend but have never had a Swiss 210. Fit and finish is comparable to the German master shop stuff.

There are several on here more knowledgeable than I who have spoken at length on the new 210.

Well... I finally got to the range to shoot the newly acquired P210 SIG (U.S. Made) and I have to admit I am impressed... really impressed... Maybe in awe would be a better description.

In an earlier post I commented on my first impressions of this American made SIG 210. Honestly, I was more than a little skeptical of how this pistol would stand up when compared to a Swiss made example of the same gun. Given that the typical Swiss P210 can run four times the price of the U.S. production I really was not sure what to expect. I had heard reports the U.S. made gun is very accurate and certainly hoped those reports were accurate...

Happily the new P210 did not disappoint...

I decided to use two types of ammunition to do the initial firing of the SIG. So getting ready to head to the range I got out two boxes of my 115gr copper plated lead round nose ammo and two boxes of 147gr copper plated round nose ammunition. This ammunition was nothing out of the ordinary...it is mixed brass that I clean and polish before reloading and then polish briefly after reloading to remove the tool marks from the case.

So, once comfortably settled down at the range I hung some targets (10x10" size) and moved the target carrier to 15 yards... the max distance the range offers. I started out with the 115gr loads.

The 210 digested the 115gr load flawlessly... and it proved a very accurate load indeed... I had rather expected the 115gr to be the more accurate of the two loads (and this proved to be the case) given most European 9x19 is 115gr and given the 210 was designed in Europe.

Here is the first target....





This target is five rounds of 115gr PLRN range ammo. This was about par for the performance of the 115gr handload. A few targets had some called flyers but the 210 delivered consistently excellent results with this ammo.

After finishing up a box of 115gr 9x19 I switched to 147gr PLRN to see how it worked in the SIG.

Here is the first target using 147gr ammo:




This target is five rounds of 147gr PLRN again at 15yds.

Groups using 147gr ammo were fractionally larger than the 115gr, but the differences were so small as to be negligible.

So, I have to say I am very pleased with the results. I really didn't expect a 9mm pistol by any maker to deliver accuracy of such a high level (particularly with my old eyes.)

I guess the bottom line is "Highly Recommended."

That's some good shootin', there, Chuck. Wish I could do nearly that well with my P210A.

As soon as a compact model hits the market, I will bust out my credit card.

And when that's going to be?

Meanwhile, I have a Standard model am very happy with accuracy, trigger and appearance. I shoot service pistol matches locally with it. I also have a used Holsterwelt holster and 5 mags for it. So you can say I am invested in this thing.

I bought a P210T probably two years back when the P210 Targets hit the market.
Have had it the range several times and it is very accurate. I would not hesitate to buy one of the P210 models.

Is this support, two hand or one handed?

Cool, if one or two handed standing and consecutive targets, it's pretty close to the standing CISM world record. Respect!
