Well I just spoke to someone at Sig about this pistol. They are still in production but they are moving the frame production to the USA because they were not happy with the frames produced in Germany. So now its just a waiting game because they have over 400 orders for this pistol.

Lol I'm going to guess I was looking at it after you sold it. But that's OK cause they are still making the pistol so I'm in no hurry now.

Sig is all about moving the metal these days. They are going to build only a few of these a year. It is the Sig equivalent to purchasing a 1911 from Heirloom Precision. They do not complete that many guns a year.

You are not looking at a run of the mill off the basic assembly line Sig. Be patient I have waited over a year for a custom built 1911 this really is not any different.

All of the custom Sig models are made in small batches about once a year.

I waited 10 months for my P229 Stainless Elite, and that was back in 2010 before the shenanigans.

It was actually a nice surprise. Get it paid off and forget about it. By the time the sting from the payment is gone and it shows up, it'll be like a wonderful present.

Vwsig I have been waiting for almost a year so I'm patient my only problem is in NJ the purchase permit is only good for 6 months and I pulled one for this pistol 6 months ago. So the only good thing that has come out of this is I used it for a sig 1911 stx yesterday just before the permit expired. I always wanted a 1911 but I wanted the super match first...lol

The last time I talk to someone at Sig hr told me they had over 400 on order and they would have to start filling the orders. But they are still no where to be found...

So now I put in for a new permit which my town said it will take 5 months to get. My luck the pistol will show up next month and I won't have the permit for 4 more months... So you see where I'm going with this? Lol
But thanks for your support.

tynman I can understand the frustration withe the NJ permit thing. It complicates things like this. Just because 400 are "on order" does not mean 400 will be produced. IMHO they won't produce that many before they change the model.... LOL

Hopefully you will get your gun soon!!!!

The permit thing makes this very hard. I now have to hope my permit comes in and then with in the next 180 days the p220 comes in. But now if I have to wait the 5 months that my town is saying it will take to get me my permit that would put me June sometime... So hopefully everything lines up. Another hard thing about this no one has a price on it so I cant even pay for it and then just wait for it to come in.....
But Im patient with my fingers crossed....LOL

Well just an update to this, I have spoken to 1 of the 3 LGS I put my order in for the P220 super match and he told me its been over a year but sig has sent him a list of ship dates for his back ordered guns and mine is 2/28/14. So with that I have some hope that I may get it by July if Im lucky....
But I do have hope...

I predict they will gradually phase out the specialized 220's and start ramping up on specialized 227's.

What in the world? Is that really what it's like to own a gun in New Jersey?

How in this legal in this country? Good lord. Why wouldn't you move?

I can literally get a hair up my butt and go buy a new gun on my lunch break, take it to the range and put some rounds through it... and be back at my desk in an hour.

I just don't understand...

Yes that is how it is in NJ. Here the towns think the only people with guns should be the cops... I have reported them but I dont know if that will help anything or just make it take longer...

Why dont I move cause of my job... But dont you worry as soon as I can retire I am out of this state.. Once I retire I wont be able to live in this state on my pension... And this gov is making even harder for me to have anything when I retire.....

Hey no jab against you but Sigs are prevalent in gun friendly states. I see them in large numbers in TX, OK, AR and LA. You might look at buying from a dealer in a gun friendly state online and having it shipped to your local gun shop.

I got the pistol already. But no state has a new p220 super match because Sig isn't making them yet. For what reason I don't know and they won't tell me the truth way there aren't making them yet. So I got a lightly used one. Which it is sitting at my FFL dealer here in NJ. I saw the gun already inspected it and all I need now to bring it home is my purchase permit that has been taking over 5 months now. So the gun in no longer the issue it now is an issue with my town and there sweet ass time getting me my permit.

"Sigs" are... but the custom run guns pretty much always have a long wait period.

I'm in AZ. Doesn't get much more gun friendly... and I had to wait 10 months when I ordered my P229 Elite Stainless.

OP was looking for a P220 Super Match. I don't see any available anywhere online, do you?
