Sig Custom Works: Nightmare Series

Sig Resurrects Another

The engineers (or perhaps necromancers, it is spooky season) over at Sig Custom Works have returned another favorite line to life.

The Nightmare Series of Olde had an iconic dark finish with a touch of contrast from nickel and some functional internal upgrades that made for a smooth shooting and smoother looking finished product. They were sharp looking pistols and they ran. One of the most iconic was the Fastback Nightmare .45 ACP 1911, easily one of the most popular SIG SKU’s

Well. The Nightmare is back just in tome for trick or treating and since many locations have forbidden the exchange of sweets because of exposure to the virus, why not a nice shiny new piece instead of cavity inducing sweats? (I’m still getting several bags of Reese’s Pumpkins though, I’m an adult and you cannot stop me.)

The team at SIG Custom Works has reimagined three of the most iconic SIG pistols giving them the infamous blacked out Nightmare treatment. The new Nightmare Series features a blacked out Custom Works engraved slide and blacked out frame with nickel plated contrasting controls giving them the distinct Nightmare look. The Sig Sauer Nightmare Series are also the first SIG pistols to fitted with a Hogue Classic Contour SL G-10 Grip. The Nightmare Series P226 and P229 are chambered in 9mm with the P220 chambered in 45ACP, each is equipped with X-Ray 3 day/night sights and 3 magazines. The Custom Works Nightmare Series comes packaged in a premium Custom Works Negrini pistol case complete with a SIG Custom Works challenge coin and a certified custom certificate. The new Nightmare Series from SIG Custom Works. The Nightmare is back.

The Nightmare expands into the P226, P229, and P220. They added X-Ray3 night sights and Hogue G10 grip panels to the classic aesthetic, modernizing the function for carriers.

As a fan of the flagship Sig models this will be a fantastic series to get hands on. If I can justify it to my checkbook after the Scorpion AXG (and candy…)
