Newington, N.H. (August 6, 2018) – SIG SAUER Inc., is pleased to announce they took home Golden Triggr Awards for two of the three categories at TriggrCon which showcases the newest, most innovative products in the firearms industry.

The SIG SAUER P365 was awarded the 2018 Golden Triggr Award for Innovation in Firearms. The P365 is an everyday, concealed carry pistol. This micro-compact pistol is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class. It features a high-capacity, patented modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 full-size capacity, with 12-round factory made magazines available for 13-round capacity.
“Innovation is the foundation for all of the products developed by SIG SAUER, and we are truly honored to be recognized in this forum by our peers,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “With the P365, we fused together micro-compact sizing with full-size capacity – an industry first. The value of this innovation is clearly being recognized and appreciated by our consumers because the demand for our Everyday Carry P365 is remarkable, and continues to surpass expectations.”
The SIG SAUER Electro-Optic Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) was awarded the 2018 Golden Triggr for Innovation in Optics.
