SIG M11-A1


The SIG P226 Navy is a civilian version of pistol issued to the U.S. Navy SEALs.


The SIG M11-A1 is a cross between the, no longer manufactured P228, and current P229.

The Sig Sauer M11 was a military version of the Sig P228 and adopted by the U.S. military for personel where a full-size pistol would not be appropriate.  Currently it is the pistol used by the USAF OSI, USN Intelligence Service, and USN and USMC aviators, when on combat missions.

As the P228 is no longer manufactured, the M11-A1 is a variant of the P229, that incorporates the M11 features.  The changes include:

  • Nitron coated slide and phosphate coated internal parts to resist salt water corrosion.  
  • Tritium Night Sights.
  • Short Reset Trigger, allowing extremely rapid follow-up shots.
  • Reprofiled Trigger Guard.
  • 3 magazines with redesigned followers allowing 15 rounds, instead of 13 in each magazine.
  • Military Standard UID Label and SIG engraving on the slide.

The M11-A1 is produced with both the standard black finish or with a flat dark earth finish.
