sig 2022

I'm wanting to add a 9mm to my collection and I really like the Sig 2022 but I can't understand why they are so much cheaper than the rest of the Sig lineup. Is there something I'm missing is there something wrong with this gun

Nope, it's a highly reguarded gun that is excellent. The polymer frame is what makes it cheaper, it shoots just as well as a 226.

I got one about a months a go, and have about 250 rounds through it including range reloads, and it hasn't choked on a thing.

It's very accurate once I got used to the trigger.

They are excellent pistols. I'm not a big fan of "tactical tupperware" but I am impressed with the SIG SP2022.

I've sold two other SIGs (a P6 and a P220). I still have my SP2022.

No, it's an excellent gun. The P250 is the one to avoid.

Sig SP2022 is a French Contract gun. The orginal German guns which came into the country with triple serial #s, proof marks & Iffalon finish were overruns. These are modified versions of the orginal Sp2009 Sig Pro. These overruns sold well at $400 with 3 mags and night sights.

The newer guns are no longer made in Germany. They are made here with an external extractor and US made frame. They now ship with only 1 mag in most cases and standard contrast sights.

They are good guns and a good value. I have heard issues with the .357 and 40 S&W but they are not wide spread enough to say there is a "problem."

I like mine in 9mm.

Could you please give specific reasons for avoiding the P250? I have one on the way. It is a new one. Now, I did some research before buying it and had read that there were some issues when sig first introduced the gun. I also heard that these issues have all been ironed out and that owners of the newer P250 models were pretty much happy campers.

The P250 is OK. The modular part never worked out. Caliber changes are too expensive.

There were issues with the orginal gen 1 guns. Recently they were kicked out of the BATFs pistol trials for too many failures. The main issue with them IMHO is the long trigger pull and long reset. If you can live with those they seem to be decent enough guns in the sub $400 market.

And a lazer sight...I have a 9mm, but the 40sw seem to have a load more problems.

Yes I have seen some now being offered with a cheap laser sight. It seems like all the low end Sig lasers & sights are made in China, which in and of itself is not a bad thing. The holosights they gave away with the 556 rifles were junk. Do you have one and is it any good?

Yup, I have the one that came with it on the gun as you can see. I couldn't really tell you a good one from a bad one, but it adjusts easy, you can see the light aiming point adjust right in. It's a tad annoying and distracting to use, but the beam is very strong and stays pretty pinpoint at 15 yards. Good enough for me.

I have a US made SP2022 in .40 It came with SigLite night sights. However mine has an internal extractor and NO loaded chamber indicator. It seems there a few different configs out there.

I recently bought an SP2022 in 9 and LOVE IT... However, I bought it without asking my wife and need to sell it If you are interested, let me know... I fired one magazine through it at my FFL's range and brought it home to the dismay of my wife... I have it on gunbroker right now with a BIN of 360 with two 15 rd. mags... not sure if this is the place to put this info, so just let me know if you're interested!
