Sig Sauer Germany shutting its doors

This is rather depressing, I dont care what they claim the EU is behind this. Damn Germans couldn’t grab thier ankles any faster to support this either.

This has been in the works for a good while, just money people moving money around. The German wing has essentially been just a custom shop for years now since the “separate entity” in the US got rolling. Made sense on the money end, America sells guns to about anyone. That factory in Germany will be producing again in short order, just need to do a little paperwork,swap signs, and a little retooling. They have some true craftsmen there in Germany, somebody will figure out how to make a buck on them.

If this was Glock or Colt nobody would care though.

Managing Director, Tim Castagne, said that “SIG Sauer [GmbH] is systematically excluded from the tender because of its international orientation.”

Wow

Sig Germany closing its doors sucks, Sig is an iconic firearms manufacture with a lot of history. Thier quality was much more consistant than the U.S. branch too although Sig USA appears to be improving and they have far better options.

I use to be a member of the Sig forums and ive owned a total of 14 Sigs, there used to be a lot more issues with U.S. made Sigs from finish to out of spec parts. Im willing to give them another chance because of how well I shoot them but its always been a love/hate relationship based on my experiences

6 Sigs here, one took several trips back to become a reliable weapon(938), two 226’s a 239 and a PM400 were flawless from day one, a P716 was a dog from day one and three trips back never changed that. I love MOST of my Sigs.

My German p226 was fantastic as was 3…or maybe 4 out of 6 of my p320s. The bad p226 had numerous issues and two of the p320s were hi point level trash. Sigs CS was douchey over the p226 but seemed better with my last p320

Filing bankruptcy is a standard business practice at Colt.

As is cutting sales to civilians over political nonesense and claiming its for financial reasons

Yeah, they’re still an American gun manufacturer. Remington has also field bankruptcy before

They may actually be doing it for financial reasons. Their AR’s were not being sold as much as other brands being they cost sometimes 3X as much as some of their competitors.

I personally like Colts AR’s

SIG ist Kaput. ist alis bye bye

My bud just called he has a P220, 2012 model one of the pro shop model, fancy trigger and jeweled and sure.
Now he wants to sell it, After begging me for a year to buy mine, he got his. Now he want to sell it and get a glock.

Yes he does live in CA so that kinda explains it.
