The SIG Pro is a series of semi-automatic pistols developed by SIG Sauer in Exeter, NH, US. It was the first polymer-frame handgun from SIG Sauer and one of the first pistols to feature a built-in universal accessory rail and interchangeable grips.[1]

The SIG Pro was marketed as a lightweight and compact alternative to the "legacy" SIG Sauer handguns in an increasingly competitive and budget-oriented law enforcement market. It was originally developed as a .40 S&W–caliber service pistol and introduced in June 1998 with the SP 2340 model, followed shortly by a version in .357 SIG (which retained the same model designation). About one year later, a 9×19mm Parabellum variant, the SP 2009, was introduced and entered production in response to demand for the type.[1] cl
