Swiss Arms AG is a Swiss manufacturer of small arms. It was known as SIG Arms AG before 2000 when it was acquired by German investors from parent company Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG).

Their products are imported into the United States of America by SIGARMS, a relationship that dates back to 1985.
