Sig Sauer brings three new commemorative pistols to market, benefitting the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
The 1911 Nitron, 1911 Stainless and P320 Carry will raise funds for the NLEOMF, with a portion of proceeds headed towards the non-profit. The Sig Sauer 1911 Nitron boasts a Nitron coated stainless steel frame and slide engravings. The top of the slide offers an American Flag and Thin Blue Line with the right side offering the memorial badge and rose while the left is outfitted with the words “Respect, Honor, Remember” and a Protector Lion. The .45 ACP pistol brings a hammer-fired design with SigLite Night Sights, Rosewood grips and three 8-round mags.
The 1911 Stainless features a stainless steel frame and similar engravings, though the Stainless version is equipped with a left side slide quote — “It is not how these officers died that made them heroes it is how they lived.” The Stainless is a .45 ACP handgun, hammer-fired, with SigLite Night Sights. The pistols sport Blackwood grips and also ships with three 8-round mags.
Rounding out the NLEOMF pistols is the Sig Sauer P320 Carry. Another Nitron coated pistol, the 9mm striker fired handgun delivers a stainless steel frame with engravings. The pistol is outfitted with a Carry grip module, SigLite Night Sights, ambi slide catch and ships with three 17-round mags.
“This week is National Police Week and Sig Sauer honors our law enforcement officers that put themselves in harm’s way every day while remembering those that paid the ultimate sacrifice,” Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President Law Enforcement Sales, said in a news release. “The production of these unique pistols will raise awareness for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and provide funding to support the important work they do on behalf of our nation’s law enforcement officers.”
Both the 1911 pistols will see $100 from each sale go towards the NLEOMF, while $50 from the P320 Carry will go towards the fund. The NLEOMF originated in 1984 to remember fallen officer in addition to making the job safer for current LEO. The fund also built and services the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, honoring those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
