Sig 227 45acp

I was wondering what you all think of the Sig 227 45acp? Is it something that you would like to have? I would, I like the high capacity 45's.

I am a 1911 guy, but I got a chance to shoot one of the new p227's with a Sig rep on the range. I was impressed. I have a P226 Scorpion and it is similar size, it actually fits in 226 holsters.

It's not California compliant. So I can't have one.
I load 9mm, 10mm, 38 Short Colt, 38 Spl, 357 Mag, 44 Spl, 44 Mag, & 45 ACP.

I was considering a non-1911 .45 and this lools pretty good. Was waiting for it to come about and just saw them on
I don't have, but have wanted a 226 9mm, but have too many 9mm as it is, and only Glocks and a few 1911,s in .45.
Looked at Ruger and not bad, but this one really looks like a great .45.

Adding to my short list!

I have a LEO buddy who's absolutely DYING for a 227 SAS (I think that's what it's called). I've been keeping my eye out for one at all of the shops and guns hows, but that particular model is just plain ol' absent from this neck of the woods.

i love the sas models. mostly because it doesn't have a rail. i hate rails.
Favorite range gun for the money - CZ 75B or STI Spartan V 9mm
Go-to carry setup - Walther PPS or PPQ in FIST kydex holster 1AK
Favorite semi-auto design - HK P7

I think it’s a very intriguing gun and would really like to find one in a LGS to handle a bit. I already own a P220 and not really sure the extra couple of rounds would justify the cost. However, I would also like to see how it looks/feels with the extended 14 round magazine.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

My thoughts...

I like the concept of the SIG Sauer P227 high-cap .45acp.
It's a good design on the level of a HK45, M&P .45acp, Glock 21 or 30, XDm .45acp.
I, for one, would want a SAO(single action only) P227R or maybe a DAK(duty sidearm).
