    For CZ I would say it is the 75B,,,
    For Glock I would say it is the G19,,,
    For Beretta I would say it is the venerable 92.

    What would it be for Sig Sauer?

    I personally can't imagine anything eclipsing the 210 in Sig's lineup.


    From their own site:

    "EMBRACE YOUR HERITAGE
    Quality. Precision. Performance.

    The P210 target pistol embodies the virtue and craftsmanship of SIG SAUER."

    Well, I'd actually disagree and say it's the P-226, of which many more have been produced and used by military, law enforcement and citizens worldwide. The 210 became (and yes, I'm aware of its history in Swiss holsters) more of an aficionado's pistol, geared more for target shooting and collecting than general use.

    220 or 226....

    That's a tough call.

    I'll take one of each please.

    That was kind of the impression I got when I went to Sigs website,,,
    The only 210 I could find was the "Target" version.

    I just looked at the 210 at Buds gun shop,,,
    That was one pricey fiery-arm,,,:what:
    Then again so was the 226.

    Unless Sig Sauer says, The Model xxx is our Flagship pistol,,,
    It's all personal opinion my friend.

    Thanks for posting yours.

    Isn't that what a Flagship model is? Near supercar performance coupes from the big makers are collectible toys, usually garaged and driven on the weekend. We know the car makers sell many more mid and full size SUVs, but those aren't the flagships. The P226 and 229 are like Suburbans and Tahoes, Expeditions and Explorers. Sure, lots of LE and paramilitary divisions of federal agencies use them, and lots of regular citizens buy them. But we all want the Corvette ZR1, or the Ford GT, or the BMW M Coupe, or the Supra, or the GT-R. We all want the P210, but we buy the more practical P226 or P229 to actually carry and use.

    Well in my "personal opinion" I am torn between the P226 and the P220. The 210 is too much of a high dollar specialist. The 226 and 220 are closer to an every man's pistol. Not that they are cheap either but certainly more reachable for many of us than the 210. Over the years I have managed to acquire one of each (220 and 226) and I really love both of them. I actually shoot the 220 better I believe because of the very slightly slimmer fit.

    Possibly, I mean I can't argue with your definition,,,
    I mean, it makes sense.

    But as an example I would opine that the F-150 was Ford's flagship pick-up truck,,,
    I tend to define flagship in more utilitarian terms than special use term,,,
    What model of pick-up truck sustains their company's viability.

    My Ford loving brother-n-law would disagree with me on that.

    In any case,,,
    Thanks for commenting,,,
    I enjoyed reading your well stated opinion.

    I would definitely say the P220 or the P226. I like the P210 but they sold a lot of the other P series pistols.

    I'd say the p220. I wonder if their bread and butter pistol has been the sp2022?

    Same. And I've heard the Camaro and Mustang referred to as the flagship models as well. I have a mustang (3 actually). My neighbor has a GT. I'd definately trade. Lol

    I'd have to say 226/220 as well. But at the moment the 320/M-17/18 whatever is working on overtaking the P-210/220/226 anyway as the flagship IMO. I think in 10 years the answer would be the 320 series.

    I’d say the P226, the P210 might be considered a halo, the Corvette, Viper, Ford GT are halo cars, a flagship is something everyone recognizes as that makers product ie a Camaro or F150

    I bet if you asked Sig they would tell you the P320/M17

    P320 for sure. Much like the F150/suburban analogy. Comes in race-ready x5 lightning trim, or plain Jane duty models. Given the gov contracts it’s likely the volume-sales leader in the lineup as well.

    For now I'd say the 226, but expect the M17/M18 will soon surpass the 226.

    Much as I like some of the other models, I'd have to agree; the P226...

    It sure is not the one that they just settled the class action lawsuit over. That was the civilian model of the US Military M16 and M17.

    P226 is their flagship. Second would be the P220.

    That’s not what "flagship" means. Flagships aren’t the most numerous vessels in a fleet. That’s the OPPOSITE of a flagship.

    Currently it's the P320 & variants. Historically the P210.
