SIG has a long, storied history – one that is much too long and involves too many sales and subsidiaries than I care to discuss. However, the discussion of both the SIG P6 and the SIG P225 is pertinent.
The SIG Sauer line of pistols, named due to the company’s collaboration with J.P. Sauer & Sons, began in 1975 with the introduction of the SIG Sauer P220. The P220 is a semi-automatic pistol that utilizes a short-recoil operation and was originally developed for use with the Swiss army as a replacement for the SIG P210. Eventually, the P220 spawned many variants which remain popular today, including the SIG P6 and the SIG P225.
The 1970s brought with it a new standard for police firearms in West Germany, which led authorities to seek replacements. SIG Sauer, Heckler & Koch and Walther all submitted pistols to be considered, each of which was accepted. SIG originally submitted the P220, only to later submit a redesign that was compliant with the new standards set forth. This variant was known as the P6/P225 – with the P6 being those manufactured for West German police and the P225 being those manufactured for United States civilian law enforcement. Though the pistols are relatively identical, there are some slight differences, however, including the trigger pull, hammer style, sights and the feed ramp.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out factory magazines for your firearms. Factory magazines are manufactured by the same company, to the exact same specifications and tolerances as the originals. They are also made from the same materials. This ensures both fit and function in your firearm.
The SIG P6/P225 magazine is a factory-produced, German-made, single-stack magazine designed for use with the SIG P6. Because the firearms are functionally identical, the magazine will fit and function in both the SIG P6 and the SIG P225. The magazine holds 15 rounds of 9x19mm Parabellum ammunition and is marked as such. It is constructed entirely from steel and features a matte black finish as well as a “SIG Sauer” logo displayed prominently on the left side. Note that each of these magazines is a surplus item. Though they may show some signs of wear, they are in excellent working condition.
