To help stimulate the economy, SIG Sauer will begin a "cash for clunkers" handgun program, according to the weapons manufacturer.
To obtain the $200 payment, officers must purchase a new P220R, P226R, P229R, 1911, SIG556R pistol or SIG556R rifle between Sept. 7 and Nov. 30. The company will then provide a payment for an older pistol or revolver.
To receive the payment, mail the old handgun with a copy of a Form 4473 and proof of purchase of the new SIG Sauer firearm to the company no later than Dec. 4.
Mail it to SIG Sauer Inc., Attn: CK-1, 18 Industrial Drive, Exeter, NH, 03833.
To qualify as a clunker, the handgun can be from any manufacturer, but must be operational and free from cracks in the frame or other key components. It must be a semi-automatic pistol of 9 mm or larger, or a revolver of .38 caliber or larger. All transactions are subject to federal, state, and local firearms regulations.
