You mean to tell me Sig is trying to sell these? I like blue on lots of things, but on firearms?

It sounds like a bad idea to have blue as a common colour for inert training simulators, and then to finish a functioning piece with it.

Not that ugly. If it was yellow instead of blue I would go for it.

I love the burled wood grips, but besides that - ewwww!

Actually, I think that looks very nice. Except for the whole, you know, blue part.

Now, if the gun were blued (as in firearm finish, not color) and polished, or done in nice Satin Stainless, it would be beautiful.

I think my respect level for SIG just dropped a little. Okay, a lot.

I'll shut up now.

Well, I like the grips anyway.

Sig is weaseling in on a market currently dominated by Taurus (pimpified from the factory).

Nothing that some Krylon (excuse me, GunKote) wouldn't fix.

I think it's pretty. Of course, one would need a beautifully tooled holster as well as the proper silk suit to wear with that gun when attending church or other formal affairs but, that said, it looks like a beautiful gun for dress up occasions. I can't imagine actually shooting it and getting it dirty.

I've always considered nice wood stocks on a SiG the equivalent of wire wheels on a Hummer.

Gold-plated leverage...gah. I'm going to go lovingly gaze upon my plain, unadorned SiGs and mourn for their misbegotten bretheren.

Regards,
Rabbit.

Not only is is fugly - they've made it the exact color of a training "dummy" gun. Not too smart!

I just had to throw out a comment.

This pistol is blue. Not " gun blue", not " blue steel", as in the " blue - black" of fine metal work, but BLUE, as in Sinatra's eyes or perhaps the politcal map on CBS.

Why does anyone want a blue pistol?

What would the shrink think " Vy do you vant a blue pischtol, eh?"

Maybe it is a unique marketing campaign from SIG - at least the offering is drawing notice.

Final thought- yech- what an ugly gun.

Um, well, [looks sheepish] I like the color. Not the grips because the wood is lovely but it's too pale for that color. Needs black grips. But I like the color overall, and I could probably get an extra round off while my attacker is staring and giggling.

You can also get a P226 X-FIVE GOLDEN DRAGON. Wow! It's orange with lamocamo grips.

They're both gruesome. I like my all black P229 SAS just fine thank you.

Raptor: "Actually, I think that looks very nice. Except for the whole, you know, blue part."

So at least you agree that the P226 X-FIVE GOLDEN DRAGON (link) is beautiful?

I think both these guns are beautiful.

Heh. It's a barbecue gun, straight from the factory.

That is, if you routinely barbecue with pimps.
