new Sig P220 Compact SAS

Hey All,
new Sig made it's debut at the range today.
200 rounds with ZERO MALFUNCTIONS.

Running some Eno's Slide Glide on the rails, carrying in a new Occidental Leather IWB, and this thing is accurate and solid.

No drama (unlike my recent debacle with a new Glock 26 Gen4)
and nothing but positive ejection, accuracy, and minimal muzzle rise.

This Sig is a winner, and it feels good to be back to a hammer fired weapon.

Congrat on your new pistol. Another good thing is the simplicity of field stripping and cleaning.

I owned and carried the P245 for many years. It actually outshot my 220. Or I shot better with that 245 than the 220. Anyway good pistol. But it's gone now. Fond memories, but no regrets.

Nice gun! How big is the grip on that compact version? Are you able to get all of your fingers on it, or does your pinky hang off the bottom similar to the Glock 26? Enjoy that new gun!

The 220 Compact grip, with the finger extension mag base plates, fits EXACTLY where my pinkie rests on it!

Without the extension, your pinkie would dangle.
with it, just right!

I am actually considering trying to fit a flat base plate (from a full size 220) on it, and just shooting with dangling pinkie (I don't mind that method, as I have carried both a G26 and G27)

Congrats! Nice looking pistol.

How was your accuracy transitioning back from striker fired to hammer fired?

My accuracy was right on!
I was a long-time shooter of the DA/SA trigger, and so not a problem!

First range visit, I hit a tennis ball off the top of a post, from 45 yds out!

The Sig 220 Compact has a short reset trigger, which is extremely short, and that single action trigger is right on!

Congrats on the new pistol. I have the single action version of the P220 Compact (I like 1911s) and it is a heck of good gun. Fits my hand very well. I also bought the longer mag with X-grip extender to carry as my second mag.

Hey mystro,
While the 220 Compact is an excellent choice for carry gun....
It ain't no MICRO!

It is heavy, thick, and low capacity!
But, it fits the hand perfectly, has an outstanding trigger, and the fit and finish are world-class!

Compared to the Glock 26 Gen4 that I just got rid of....the Sig is downright huge!

Put another 100 rounds downrange this afternoon...

No drama, no malfunctions, just accurate and hard hitting.

Cleaned it up, greased the rails, ready for carry again!
