Sig Sauer starts Klunker Handgun program


Wednesday, September 9, 2009
EXETER Firearms manufacturer Sig Sauer, in their part to help stimulate the economy, has announced a "Cash for Your Klunker Handgun" program.

Purchase a new SIG SAUER P220, P226, P229, 1911, SIG556 pistol, or SIG556 rifle from your dealer's inventory from Sept. 7th through Nov. 30th, and Sig Sauer will give you $200 for your old pistol or revolver. To receive your $200 payment, simply send your old firearm with a copy of your form 4473 and proof of purchase of your new Sig Sauer firearm (no later than Friday, Dec. 4) to: SIG SAUER, Inc., Attn: CK-1, 18 Industrial Dr., Exeter, NH 03833.

To qualify as a klunker, your handgun can be from any manufacturer, but must be operational and free from cracks in the frame or other key components. The klunker must be a semi-automatic pistol 9mm or larger, or a revolver of .38-caliber or larger.

All transactions are subject to federal, state and local firearms regulations. For more on this program, visit www.sigsauer.com.

Sig Sauer is the largest member of a worldwide business group of firearms manufacturers that includes J.P. Sauer & Sohn and Blaser GmbH in Germany and Swiss Arms AG in Switzerland.

The klunker must be a semi-automatic pistol 9mm or larger

doh! Someone gave my a .380 hi-point a while back because they didn't want it in the house. I was getting excited until that line.

Not that I need another Sig, but at least it would be easier to sell than the hi-point.

You could argue that the .380 is 9mm kurz. :p

What are they gonna do with the guns? Maybe same as the cars? Crush 'em and melt 'em down to make new guns?

But if they want them in perfectly usable shape, my guess is that they'll take in the "klunkers" and send them back out to distributors and get more money for them. A win-win. Sig sells Sig firearms and gets money from the clunker pistols too.

You could by a new 9mm hi-point for that. LOL Send it in and still end up getting about 50bucks off your Sig.

True, it is a 9mm caliber. Should work for this deal I would think.

don't count on it. i had the same thought about my pa-63. it's 9mm mak. 363 vs. 355.

That sounds like a nice deal. Unfortunately though the only guns I would consider clunkers worth less than $200 are in calibers smaller than 9mm.

There is no mention of any limit to Klunders per transaction.

Maybe I'll turn in my C9, a Haskell .45, and a Bryco pistol, and get the Sig almost free!!:D
