The P229 Legion SAO features a SIG Mastershop-inspired trigger and is finished in a proprietary Legion gray PVD coating, custom G-10 grips with a Legion medallion, the new SIG SAUER Electro-Optics X-RAY3 high visibility day/night sights and will ship with three magazines. The P229 in SAO includes a reduced and contoured Elite beavertail, which allows for a higher grip, but a reduced profile, thus eliminating printing. More aggressive front strap checkering and additional checkering under the trigger guard enhance the grip. An X-Five undercut has been applied to the trigger guard, allowing for a higher grip and greater control. Front cocking serrations provide greater purchase for cycling the action, clearing the firearm, or conducting press checks. The pistol is available in 9mm, features a low profile slide catch lever and thumb safety to reduce the risk of snagging. In addition, a solid steel guide rod adds weight where it matters most.
