SIG P230

The SIG Sauer P230

The SIG Sauer P230 is a small pistol made by SIG Sauer.

History[]

The P230 was created in 1977 as a new concealed compact sidearm intended to be used by German forces after World War II. Other incidents such as the 1972 Munich Massacre and the activities of The Red Army Faction prompted the creation of more powerful handguns. The P230 was presented as a possible candidate, but was turned down. SIG Sauer ceased production of the P230 in 1996.

The P232 is a variant of the P230.
