The SIG P226 is a sidearm developed by SIG Sauer, which has since been adapted for use globally with law enforcement and military.
Swiss company SIG began working with German company Sauer to export their firearms internationally, and the P226 was one of their early successes. Fairly cheap to produce, the cost of the P226 came in its accessories. The weapon is commonly seen chambered for .357 SIG, but can easily also be chambered for .40 S&W, 9x19mm Parabellum and even .22 Long Rifle.
The International Temporal Enforcement Agency uses the P226 as a standard sidearm typically unmodified for situations where lethal force is necessary. The P226 is considered to have the superior stopping power but is less compact that the Walther P99 and a smaller capacity.
While members of Dragon's Den typically carry their own equipment, the P226 is a favored weapon of theirs.
