For more than 20 years, the SIG Sauer P226 has been the sidearm of choice for the world's elite military forces, including the United States Navy. The battle-proven P226 platform has proven to be an uncompromising, combat-ready pistol.

The commercially available MK25 is identical to the firearm SIG Sauer delivers under contract to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC). Built to the Navy's demanding standards, the MK25 comes chambered in 9 mm, with a phosphate finish applied to all internal components, providing corrosion resistance in even the harshest of saltwater environments.

The engraved gold anchor on the pistol's slide hints at its military origin, while the UID code on the right side serves as a genuine badge of authenticity. The true mil-spec 1913 rail is machined into the hardcoat anodized alloy frame, providing a solid mounting point for lights, lasers and accessories.

A reliable double-action/single-action trigger and two-piece polymer grips are included in the NSWC-specification package. SIGLITE night sights, three magazines, and a card certifying authenticity come standard in the case.

The only other way to obtain an authentic MK25 pistol would require a Naval enlistment and training with elite forces.
