   The M11 is a US military designation of the SIG Sauer P228 pistol. In the early 1990s this pistol has been adopter by the US military. It was issued to Military Police, Naval Aviation, Military Criminal Investigation Command and some other units that require compact and unobtrusive handgun, smaller than a full-size M9 pistol. This weapon (SIG Sauer P228) is also popular among civil customers.

   This pistol is available chambered only for 9x19 mm Parabellum ammunition. It has a short recoil system and utilizes the familiar modified Browning locked-breech design. The same locked breech operation method is present in all SIG Sauer P-series locket breech pistols.

   The M11 comes with a double action or double action only trigger. This pistol has a built-in firing pin safety. There are no manual safeties. There is a decocking lever at the left side of the frame. It is worth noting that double action only version has no decocker. The M11 can be carried safely with a loaded chamber.

   This compact pistol is available with a standard aluminum, or stainless steel frame. Version with aluminum frame is slightly lighter.

   The M11 is fed from double-stack 13-round capacity magazines. It is also compatible with 15- or 20-round magazines of the full-size SIG Sauer P226. Magazine release button is reversible.

   The M11 proved to be a durable, reliable and well-made weapon.
