I like it.

Good balance between a service load, a thin grip, and Sig quality.

Have to keep an eye out for one.

Old news...

There are a few older forum posts about SIG's new duty size "Classic" .45acp pistol. It's a smart move on SIG's part. Pre-Sandy Hook, a 14/15 shot .45acp would have been a good idea. Now in 2013, the 10rd .45acp may be the only pistol mags available to the US public.
I'd like to see a P227 up close(but not pointed at me, ).

What's next?
A slim line Glock in 9x19mm like a 36? Hint-hint.

I'm jealous -___- I want it. My SIG 220 is growling.

Ah but but but....

I'm not so sure.
The SIG Sauer "Classic" line is very popular worldwide & the P250 "modular" system didn't win any blue ribbons with US gun buyers & sworn LE.
The P220R .45acp & the SAO format pistol(s) will be on the market for a long time to come, IMO.

...so the best they could do with the P220 form factor is 2 extra bullets?

Really? The P220 extended mag already holds 10.

Hell, a Glock 30 (which is a tiny gun) holds 10.

This is VERY underwhelming.

Remember that it is easier to fit "x" number of .45 rounds into a polymer pistol than into a metal-with-grip panels pistol, if you keep the outside dimensions the same. So the Glock 30 is smaller but holds 10 also.

Apples, oranges, you know the saying.

I am not too keen on the aluminum frame SIG in .45. With the slightly higher bore, it recoils up too much for my taste. I haven't had the fun of firing the all steel SIG 220. I'd probably like it quite a bit.

The weight and feel of a steel P220 is considerable compared to an aluminum frame model.

It's the closest to a 1911 without being a 1911, especially with a SAO/safety combination.
