Sig one-ups their current lineup, with guns specifically for operators:

For thousands of years, one symbol has been a rallying cry for the world’s most revered warriors. And for decades, one brand of firearms has served more elite fighting forces than any other. Welcome to The Legion by SIG SAUER. Painstakingly engineered and enhanced for the discerning few with the same warrior spirit that inspired it. We have always given professionals what they need. Now, we are giving them what they want.

I never understand marketing plans like this.  The way I look at it, they basically just trash talked their current lineup by introducing this Legion series and marketing it as they did.  If your “brand of firearms has served more elite fighting forces than any other” as you said, doesn’t that mean that it’s already working well?  Why not just make the improvements across the line for everyone to enjoy? (If you think improvements need to be made).  Actually to be fair they didn’t claim Sig is the brand which has served more elite fighting forces haha.  They just said “one brand” in the video description.  That would be hilarious to reach out and have them confirm they are in fact talking about their own company; Sig Sauer, and get a reply like “nah fam… actually *other brand name* holds that top spot… we’re like 3rd or 4th though on a good day”.

Sig-Sauer-Legion-SeriesThe p2256 and P229 is available in 9/.40/.357SIG you can read more about on the Legion Series website.  They have plans to “legion this shit out of” a lot of other products in their lineup too according to the lengthly press release I received out of the blue from some marketing company and then reluctantly read.

Thoughts?  Is this setting the bar now for the new handgun you’d hypothetically operate with?  Are you throwing your non Legion Sigs directly into the trash now because they don’t have that *my roast hand pointing at Sig* Try-hard-MMA-ass-looking Legion branding on them?  Are you and your girl getting matching Legion Series logo lower back tattoos?  Let me know the answers to these important questions in the comments as usual.


This is amazing:

K… guys… 7 seconds in and we see the first bit of pure gold…. The guy is running a Sig Sauer SB15 “arm brace” on that AK ahhahah. #NeverShoulderNeverForget am I right?

0:18 – DJ PAUL!  Yesssss.  If you didn’t ride around listening to Three Six Mafia in the mid 90s you just weren’t as cool as you could have / should have been.

0:24 – Shoulder contact with the SB15?  Inconclusive, I’ll keep you posted though.

1:03 – Hmmmmm I’m 99% sure that made contact.  His lawyer will argue “Your honor, I assure you it just came in contact with my client Mr Deuce Uno’s t-shirt.  Mr Deuce Uno is an upstanding member of the community, a father of six, and a church going man… he would NEVER.  This is a man that lives by codes your honor.  Never Shoulder Never Forget is something he recites to himself daily when he leaves the house with the choppa.”

1:18 – Stitches is avoiding fully shouldering it too… these guys are either getting lucky or else know what they are doing and are trolling the gun community and me right now.

Stitches-Rapper2:02 – LOL DJ Paul rocking the Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun.

Normally I’d talk shit about a Stitches track because he’s usually just cookie monster yelling over a weak beat… DJ Paul blessed this one though.  I bookmarked it to listen to again.

Thoughts?  Do you think they avoided the shouldering on purpose?  Maybe they #ReadENDOonce? haha


Sonic fLamEZ from Silencerco… visuals not bad either:

Silencerco-Wizard-Staff-SuppressorThat video was raw.  I’m not going to lie, I started it up a few times after the initial watch just to hear homie make the axe wail.

Damn that SIG MPX is sexy right?  You can tell people who are actually real designers (I’m talking aesthetics in this case… not just mechanics) had a hand it it. Curves and lines in all the right places.

What about that flipped Osprey huh? Looks awesome like that on the MPX.

Thoughts?  Would jam with Silencerco guitarist then get get drunk and plan an operation?


Daaaaaaaaaaamn Sig must be doing alright!

Justine-Smith-sig-sauer-art0:38 – Homie peed with excitement all over that shoot house.

9/10 would operate there.  I deducted a point because he didn’t specify those bodies of water had sharks where I could practice CQSB scenarios.



Say the post title five times fast in front of the mirror with your eyes closed while spinning around, then look in the bathtub:

There were some good comments on the politics of the firearm silencer industry post of part 1 of this video.

Sig-Sauer-SilencersSeems like a lot of marketing… every silencer company claims their silencer and mounting system and finish is the best.  I don’t know who actually is in the lead.  Seems like mainly a matter of opinion because the lineups change so often and new players are introduced.

3:46 – That foldable stock tho… (That’s their MCX model rifle)



Former AAC guys working at Sig:

Kevin Brittingham in fact started AAC.  There is a good summary of how he ended up being fired from his own company after Remington (Freedom Group) took it over etc… over at Truth About Guns site.  It’s a really good read… basically has all the workings of a movie or at the very least a Dateline episode I’d be glued to.  At the very end it talks about how he received over $10 Million in compensation from a lawsuit he won against Freedom Group.   Hahah damn son, $10 Million and you want to work FOR someone still?  If I was a suppressor god with that kind of lawsuit settlement cake and Sig offered me a job, I’d tell them I wanted complete autonomy and a high 7 figure salary + performance bonuses or else they could shove it.  I don’t know Kevin, but I’m pretty sure that’s what must have went down.  I bet Sig was more than happy to oblige because they know it’s ultimately a good move to gain market share in a steadily growing industry.

Sig-Sauer-SilencersTo comment on the video now, it looks like Sig is headed in the right direction at least.  I’m not 100% up on what’s new and what’s old in the realm of silencers, but I bet they have state of the art equipment and with Kevin’s brain and whoever else works there I’m sure they will come up with some interesting stuff moving forward.
