The Mauser M2 is a Mauser branded handgun which was offered in the United States by Sig Sauer. It is a self-loading double-action pistol offered in .45 ACP initially, and later in .40 S&W and .357 SIG. The Mauser M2 is dimensionally similar to the SIG P229 pistol, also manufactured by Sig Sauer. Unlike most SIGs, it utilizes a rotating barrel like a Beretta. It's also striker-fired, like a Glock pistol.
SIG purchased the Mauser name for pistol manufacture in 1999, but this pistol is no longer supported by SIG nor Mauser Jagdwaffen GmbH. It hasn't been imported by SIG since 2004, and the Mauser Oberndorf plant where the M2 was manufactured has been closed.
This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
