How about a Sig P220 for steel plate and/or bullseye?

What do you guys think about using a pretty much stock Sig P220 for either steel plate challenge or NRA Bullseye shoots? Comps I speak of are nothing fancy, just some local events which are organized and run by a gun club I am a member of.

I've been doing a bunch of research on this and I can't say that I've come across a great deal of info regarding people using sig p220's in comps. I'm wondering if this is due to me being lousy at searching, its un-suitability for comp use or what have you.

Assuming for a moment that its the former, what would you say are a must have mods for a P220 to be of any use? Is it viable to install some sort of slide mounted reflex sight? Would something like that be of benefit? Or should I just stick with iron sights for now?

Would very much appreciate any and all relevant info. Thanks in advance for your help.

Do you already own a P220?
If so, then shoot a P220. You can always upgrade later.

I would not buy a P220 for the purpose.

I only know one guy shooting a P220 in "comps" and that is because it is his duty weapon he wants maximum familiarity with.

I shoot mine occasionally for familiarization with a home defense weapon.

But I would not buy one for target shooting.

Thanks for your reply.

I do already own one and I haven't really done much of anything with it. Was just wondering if it can be modified into a viable competition pistol. Assuming that's even possible or desirable with a P220.

There's nothing wrong with using the one you have for your purpose.

The P220 is an accurate and reliable pistol. The rest is up to you.

Good luck and have fun.
