Sig 220 compact

Considering purchasing one and am interested in some input from people that own one, both pro and con.
Can you use the 8 shot mag without any extra add on's?
Thanks in advance.

I think the eight round magazines will fit. They do offer a little spacer which would probably be helpful.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

I have the Sig P245 which is the same as the current 220 Compact (except some of the newer 220 Compacts have a beavertail). It is light, accurate and reliable. I use the flush-fit 6 round mags and also the factory 7 rounders as well as some aftermarket 8 rounders. You can buy a spacer for the 8 round mags that make the grip more of a full size 220 grip. The 245 is my usual carry .45 and works in any 220 holster (I use Highnoon IWB's). I have a number of other good quality carry .45's (HK-USP compact, Beretta 8045 minicougar, Springfield Ultracompact, SW 4516 and 457) but prefer the 245. Good luck.
