SIG Sauer P522

- SKU: P52210BS

The .22 LR cartridge is a rimfire cartridge that was originally designed in 1887 by J. Stevens Arm & Tool Company. In the 125 years that followed, the cartridge became one of the world's most popular cartridges – likely due to its low cost, low recoil and low noise. Today, scores of pistols, revolvers and rifles are produced that are chambered for the cartridge, but none quite like what we are offering today.

Chances are you have experience with quite a few firearms chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. Once you handle the SIG Sauer P522, however, you are likely to forget each and every one of them.

Originally manufactured as a pistol, the SIG Sauer P522 is a semi-automatic pistol patterned after the SIG Sauer 522, which is in turn patterned after the company's 55x series rifles that are chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge. The P552 is chambered for the .22 LR cartridge and utilizes a reliable blowback operation rather than the adjustable gas block found in the 55x series. Suitable for use as a training tool, long-range target shooting or small game hunting, the P522 seeks to change the way you view .22 LR platforms. Each pistol ships with a single 25-round magazine.

SIG Sauer, Inc. was originally established in 1985 as an American branch of SIG Sauer GmbH, the German arms manufacturer based in Eckernförde, Germany. SIG Sauer, Inc. began as Sigarms Inc. and was originally based in Tysons Corner, Virginia. The company was created for the American importation of German-produced SIG Sauer firearms. In 1990, the company moved its headquarters to Exeter, New Hampshire to accommodate the new manufacture of certain SIG Sauer models in addition to continued importation. It was not until 2007 that the company changed its name to the current incarnation. Today, the company is one of the fastest growing arms manufacturers in the United States. Offering a wide range of products to a wide range of markets including the military, law enforcement and civilians, the company prides itself on their high-quality, reliability and unrivaled performance – qualities that are all readily apparent in the new SIG Sauer P522.

As noted, the SIG Sauer P522 is SIG Sauer, Inc.'s approach to the AR-15 pistol with a twist – it is chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. With the P522, SIG Sauer, Inc. was able to successfully scale down their famous 55x series rifle into a .22 LR platform without sacrificing any of its features or its exceptional performance, offering both in a pistol configuration that somehow, despite the rest of the AR-15 pistols available on the market, feels fresh.

The SIG Sauer P522 pistol features a 10.6-inch button-rifled barrel (1:16 inch twist) alongside an overall length of just 20 1/2 inches. The barrel also includes an A2 birdcage-style flash suppressor. The receiver, which features 7075 T6 aluminum construction with a hard coat anodized finish, is joined by a lightweight trigger housing that gives the pistol a weight of just over five pounds, making it easily handled by shooters of all sizes and skill levels. The aforementioned receiver is adorned with an integral Picatinny rail, which is perfect for mounting the optional SIG Sauer mini red dot sight or any other optics and tactical equipment. Other features include a Swiss-style polymer forend, multiple sling attachments, and a lever safety selector. As noted, each SIG Sauer P522 includes a single 25-round polymer magazine.

After firing the SIG Sauer P522, you will never think of the 5.22 LR cartridge in the same way again. Consider the P522 for:

- Training

- Target shooting

- Small game hunting

- Plinking
