    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SIG SAUER® Commercial Pistols Now Shipping with Single Magazine

    EXETER, NH – SIG SAUER, the leading manufacturer of military, law enforcement, government agency, and commercial firearms, has announced effective March 20, 2009, that all commercial pistols with a standard configuration of two magazines will now ship with a single magazine. This change in configuration is a result of the critical shortage of magazines throughout the industry. SIG SAUER’s decision to ship commercial pistols with one magazine will allow existing and new orders to be processed without interruption. Without this change in policy, magazine availability would severely hinder SIG SAUER’s ability to meet market demand and ship product in a timely manner. Distributor and dealer single magazine pistol shipments commence immediately. For more information on SIG SAUER, or any if its products, visit www.sigsauer.com.

    Just one more reason to get a Glock. Magazines are available and not near as expensive as those from Sig.

    Still the best combat pistol on the market, with one or 2 or 3 mags will buy as many SIG pistols i can afford. But seeing as i already own 1 of each model i dont need any more. Glocks are ok but they are still a glock, which isnt the end all of pistols.

    Hmm I don't see any shortages of Mec Gar magazines. Just the Sig branded magazines.

    Just bought my P220 and it has the 2 mags....but it was in stock at the store. I also purchased 2 more 10 rnd mags and yes they are relatively expensive, paid 39.99 with the extension. I couldn't find any Mec Gar mags for the .45, did I not look in the right place? You can't have too many mags!

    BTW I don't have any of this yet, I pick up the pistol Wed. and the other stuff is on order.

    The last Sig mag I bought was $32.00. The last Glock mag I saw for sale was $30.00. Granted, these are store/gun show prices rather than bulk internet purchase prices.

    Sig factory mags ~$35

    Last time I bought a Sig mag (about a week ago) I paid $21. Mec Gar (who makes Sig factory magazine) 15 round 228/229 magazine.

    Last time I bought a Glock magazine (about two months ago) I paid $25 for a Glock 19 15 round magazine.

    What a load of crap. Magazine shortage? How about calling it a "Profit Shortage" - that's more appropriate. Clearly a cost cutting move amidst a tough economy. Are they lowering the price by one magazine? Not... How about some honesty Sig?

    There's an angry thread over at Sigforum on this:

    Forget the Sig and get an XD. You'll get 2 mags and have extra money to buy more!

    This is not new - my P228 that I got 12 years ago (NIB) only had one magazine (13-round). A piece of paper in the box with SIG's letterhead said so.

    This does not make it any less annoying - IMO any pistol should come with at least two magazines. Even the budget-priced Bersas are now coming with two, for crying out loud.

    That's fine as long as they decrease the price by the appropriate amount, but I have a feeling that's not going to happen.

    In case you hadnt noticed gun manu. are not hurting due to this economy. Actually they are posting profits higher then they did when Clinton took office. You can do a simple search on CNN or Yahoo finance for any of the publicly traded companies and see their quarterly reports.

    Ok..this thread can go without all the "one more reason to buy a Glock" comments. For real people.

    This does suck though. How can there be a shortage of magazines? For the price of a Sig pistol, they should come with at least two magazines.

    It could, but where's the fun in that? I love Sigs, they are great guns and I've felt fine carrying them in some crappy corners of the world. I'd do the same with a Glock as well.

    Reduce the price of the gun by $35 and I would be happier.

    Not news to those of us who were amongst the first to buy a Mosquito and not realize they only issued them with a 1 year warranty.
