http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/w...go-180x180.pngOne of the under-the-radar new products at the 2014 SHOT Show was the appearance of the new SIG SAUER ammo. *SIG hosted a private media event prior to the SHOT Show where they let a hand-picked group of media members shoot the company’s new firearms. *The ammo being shot through the weapons? *SIG V-Crown.
The SIG V-Crown line uses a jacketed hollow point, and is labeled as “Elite Performance Ammunition.” *Initially, ammo will be loaded for the 9mm, .40 S&W, .357 SIG and .45 ACP.
Jeff Creamer, the director of product development for SIG SAUER, appeared on the January 19 edition of Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk radio program. *Creamer stated the ammo will be officially launched at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in April.
Mark Keefe, the editor-in-chief at American Rifleman, stated SIG SAUER is “…having [the ammo] made to their specifications, with their components…” in Kentucky. *That suggests SIG is outsourcing the manufacturing of the ammo.
Txshurricane, listed as the “Owner/Admin” of the SigAddict Forum, stated that the new ammo “is manufactured for Sig – not by Sig, specifically. But Sig is being secretive about who is making it. I can only confirm that it’s U.S.-made.”
However, Creamer stated very clearly on Gresham’s radio program that SIG is manufacturing the ammunition. *Here was the exchange between Creamer and Gresham:
Gresham: *”…it’s not being loaded for you by somebody else”SIG will have a long way to go to prove the performance of a new defensive hollow point round. *There are many good choices already on the market. *However, with ammo supplies constrained, bringing additional product to the market is a good thing for consumers looking for lower prices.
Creamer: *”No, it’s our…operation.”
Gresham: *”You have your own ammo company.”
Creamer: *”It’s our operation, yeah.”
