Sig P220

I've not owned a Sig for years (had a single action P220) and decided it was time to purchase one again... let's see P220 pics!

The P220R is my everyday CC pistol.

Finest double action .45 extant. I prefer the internal extractor and folded slide, but to each his own.

Congrats.

I want one of those darn things so much.

There's a TV show called The Glades that has some pretty sweet P220 gunfighting action in the second season.

My 1988 West German Sig Sauer P220. I'm pretty sure I will never own a finer firearm. Smooth as warm butter...

My Sig is a P220R and serves nightstand duty.

P220 Match Elite

Got this gun around 2 months ago, and have around 400 rounds down range without any hiccups. By far my most accurate handgun (and expensive ) Since this gun has the 5 inch barrel and its made of all steel it has very mild recoil...I love the heft this P220 has!

After owning one for about seven years (and selling it) I don't see what the big deal is.

Here is mine...

Oh boy, pictures!!


Here is my P220 Stainless Match Elite, with the stock aluminum grips, which are nice and thin, grip well, but are cold in the winter.





And here it is with a set of Hogue rubber grips, which also work very well, and are warmer.





These are a set of rosewood grips that really dress the pistol up, but they are noticeably "fatter" than the rubber or aluminum grips. I have slim hands with slightly long fingers, so I don't mind, but I could see it being an issue.





Now to get slightly exotic, here is another P220 Stainless Match Elite of mine, but it has been converted to 10mm, re-finished in "SuperBlack", and wearing a set of Nill walnut grips! It's "badd"!




I hope you liked the pictures!

Wow, Thomas....I might have to consider dressing my Match Elite with Rosewood grips, those look fantastic!!....Does Sig make a drop in for 10mm?, or did you have to do something special?

Hi Rupskin,

I paid Bruce Gray of Gray Guns gunsmithing to convert it to 10mm. He was running a program that he publicized in the SIGforum (http://sigforum.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/430601935) to convert full stainless SIG P220s to 10mm.

I'm sure if you pay him enough, he'll do one for you!! If he has any barrels left over I guess.

Hello chrisintexas,

There is a thread about Bruce's conversion at the SIGforum I linked to, but I believe it's mostly a new barrel, special magazines and a few bits in the feeding and ignition parts.

Just contact Gray Guns (http://grayguns.com/)and they can tell you much more, I'm sure!

My 220 is one of the easiest shooting , most accurate .45's I've shot. Great pistol.
