Sig Sauer Trailside Target .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

For casual use, we'd say Buy It. Although Sig calls this model the "Target," we feel it doesn't have enough weight or accuracy as tested for that specialized work.

The SIG's slide and frame both began life as steel castings, but the frame was machined on nearly every surface, inside and out. The surface finish and all machining were very well done.
With the gun came a warning never to dry fire this pistol -- damage will result if you do. Warning: There's a small hairpin-type spring under the right-side grip that lifts the trigger bar into contact with the sear. The bar is not pinned in place and can fall off. That little spring can fly out easily. Leave the grips alone unless you really need to take them off, and then be careful.
