The SIG P226 is a Swiss semi-automatic pistol made by J.P. Sauer und Sohn GmbH in Germany and by SIG Sauer Inc. in the United States. It primarily fires the 9x19mm Parabellum round from 15, 17, 18, or 20 round box magazines. The sidearm can also be chambered in .40S&W, .357 SIG, or .22LR, albeit with a decreased magazine size of 12 or 13 rounds for .40S&W or .357 SIG, and a special 10-round polymer magazine for .22 LR. It was designed for entry into the XM9 Service Pistol Trials, which were held by the United States Army in 1984 to find a replacement for the aged M1911. It is used by the Alliance of Nations and the Axis of Empires
