    I have been carrying this weapon for over seven years, and would prefer no other. Reliable, accurate, and damn good looking to boot.

    Our department recenlty switched from the Berreta 96D to the Sig Sauer P-226. I bought my own P-220 because I am a big bore fan. It is a great gun accurate and reliable. I carry mine on duty and off-duty in an inside the waistband holster.

    One of the finest instinctive shooting pistols ever made. This pistol saved my bacon. It hits where you POINT it. You might not have time to find that front sight. I didn't. I believe in big holes in bad things. They drain faster. Do not opt for the small bores. .45 is the way to go and if you train, why would you need 15 rounds?

    I've been carryong a .45 P220 for almost 10 years now. Sure, there are newer and even some lighter guns around these days, but the P220 still shoots as good now after a 2000-3000 rounds have been shot through it as it did when it was new out of the box. The accuracy hasn't degraded one bit. The only downside of it seems to be that the finish has a tendency to wear quickly. Mine is still in pretty good shape, but I've known a numbe of officers who have had to have theirs re-done. Other than that, no complaints.

    As relablility goes the Sig P220 is a good weapon. However for left handed officers like myself it is not very friendly. Having to use your trigger finger to work everything is a pain in tha a**. Not sure if they make an left handed model, but according to my department they don't. Would be nice to have models for all officers.

    I love this gun. I have always preferred Sigs to other pistols I've shot. Great balance, great fit for my hand, and easy to field strip when it needs cleaning. Only problem is its too bulky to try to conceal off duty, plus it would be better if Sig would make a double stack mag instead of being limited to 8 shots.

    Have carried the P220 45cal. for several years now. It is an excellent weapon that is dependable (even in adverse whether and environmental conditions such as sand and dirt). Easy to break down and clean and the Trijicon sights make shooting a breeze. None of the violent kickback of the old military .45's. A great weapon.

    A world-class dependable firearm. It's everyting you could ever need in a D/A semi-auto: Dependable. Accurate and without a doubt a firearm you can trust when your life is on the line. I've had mine in .45 cal for about six years now and I haven't had a single malfunction in over 5,000 rounds.

    My only criticism is the stock sights. Get a quality tritium set-up before you even fire it. The stock sights are the pits!

    In my opinion, the best natural point of aim weapon on the market. If you get a chance to hold one, close your eyes, come up on target, and open your eyes. I guarantee you will be on target with almost complete sight alignment. It is perfectly balanced and the single stack magazine makes for a great grip for smaller hands like mine.

    I've ALWAYS been a Glock .22 fan, always. When I switched over to State Police in 2003, the dept issued the P220. Instantly I disliked it. It was heavy, had a hammer, and being a .45 it only held 8 rounds. Well, after the first day of shooting my Sig, I loved the thing. It was so smooth on the range, never malfunctioned. Out of the box I shot better, more accurate with it then I did with 7 years experience on a Glock. More knock down power and more accurate, I'll take the fewer round capacity, clearly I wouldn't need as much. Its an amazingly durable weapon. Only caution: keep it well lubricated. Keep oil on it and you'll have a weapon to cherish.

    An awesome tool! We carried this weapon briefly after we switched over from the Sig Sauer P226 (9mm), then traded the P220 in on new P226R's. I liked the original P226 (9mm) that we carried, loved the P220 that we carried, and absolutely HATE the P226R that we now carry.

    The time I spent with the P220 was a great experience. I shot a 239/240 right out of the box the first time I handled it. A quality weapon by Sig Sauer!

    This was my first duty weapon in 1995. My agency recently converted to GLOCK (not a bad weapon), but I still believe that the P220 is a solid weapon. I still own my first P220 from 1995 and use it as a secondary (not back-up) weapon for the job. I have never had an issue with this weapon, of any sort. Would highly recommend this weapon.

    I carried the SIG P220 .45 for 13 years. My department decided to have the SWAT team carry the Springfield XD .45. If you think the SIG is heavy, Stap a boat anchor in your holster to condition yourself to the extra weight. Anyway I now own the SIG I used to carry. It is overall the best combat weapon on the market. It will rust, but your boots don't stay shiney if you don't polish them.

    Best out of the box 45 cal on the market for accuracy, dependability, balance. Easy to field strip. Perfect weight to dampen the recoil of the 45 cal. The night sights are easy to pick up. The single stack grip is very comfortable. Digests all ammo and can handle the heavy 45 cal loads. This is a Real Gun not Tupperware with rifling.

    Very effective weapon for the brass/detective/plain clothes position. It's well known, shoots well, and looks good! However, for the "gonna have to fight someone, chase someone, or hold it at point for several minutes street cop", it's maybe not the best weapon to have. Loved mine till my first foot chase that led me into knee deep water. It had developed rust by that morning. Overall not a bad weapon depending on it's application.

    My first ever time shooting a .45 caliber handgun was a brand new Sig 220 fresh out of the box. In fact it was my first time shooting Sig products at all and I was a little bit anxious about the legendary power of a .45. This pistol turned out to be an instant favorite with me and after shooting 100 rounds for familiarization I did the qualification course and passed with a near perfect score.

    The gun is large enough to handle the recoil of the .45 caliber rounds with no problem and it fits very comfortably in the hand despite being a large frame auto. The pistol has excellently placed slide release, magazine eject and de-cocking levers, and breakdown for cleaning is fast and very easy. I carried this pistol for nearly two years while working for Brier PD, and it served me well the whole time. It is still my favorite Sig pistol (I own 3) and the one I reach for the most when heading out the door on my own time.

    I bought this gun when I started the Police Academy in 1990, I carried it throughout my 18 year career. I've fired well over 10,000 rounds through this weapon, including some with the gun submerged in fresh water, not one jam. Other than having to replace a grip screw, and a "tune-up" in 2000 (more for piece of mind than anything else). This is arguably the finest most reliable .45 caliber semi-auto in the field today. I would recommend this weapon to anyone authorized to carry a .45, It saved my life twice!

    I switched to the Sig P220 45acp when my agency demanded trigger cockers in 1983. I carried it in uniform and in plain clothes work for 25 years. I put over 15k rounds through it and it shoots as well or better now than it did new. Qualification was always a snap with this weapon. I never had a problem with it and it saved my bacon a more than a few occasions. I want it in my hand when the zombies come to call.

I have bought one and still own one and other than its discolored status I have yet to have any problems with it. Very easy to maintain and extremely fun to shoot.

It is accurate, reliable and of reasonable weight in the alloy frame version. I can find no fault with this top end example of a duty or off duty pistol. Money well spent.

    Our department just went to the Sig P220 .45 SRT. It's a great gun, alittle heavier than what we had (Walther P99QA). Best grouping I've had in years!!!! Extended mag looks odd, but gives you 2 more rounds. We went from a 12 mag to an 8 with the normal Sig mag with extended you get 10.

    I have the Sig Sauer P220 Carry SAO. MSRP was $1029 but I got it from Bass Pro Shops for only $729 and it is worth every penny. Like the claims were, it was pretty accurate right out of the box and it gets better (but that may also be me) with every box of rounds. I carry either this or a Glock 30 SF.

Replacement of service weapons was scheduled for after July, but guess what boys and girls, knixed from the round 1 budget cut. Luckily the proper choice in weapon was made 10 ten years ago. Everyone is happy with it and no problems at all.

    Well now, I haven't all that much experience with pistols, but I've heard nothing but praises sang about SIG and SIG Sauer products. My dad bought a 220 in .45ACP several years ago. 7 +1 capacity in case you're wondering. I just got my carry permit a few weeks age and that's all I have to carry. The pistol need to be tuned up and it needs a new barrel because my dad fired US military issue ammo from 1942 from it and forgot to clean it. He says because the add he bought it from said it was non-corrosive. I found it in storage with marone-red rust coating the inside, I scrubbed it out and now it's very pitted. I need to get a better job so I can send it to SIG Sauer and have them tune it up for me. Better ammo would be a good idea too. Winchester "bargain box" 250 grain FMJs will have to sufice for now.

    My father put his P220 through the DPS academy then he eventually gave it to me, and I've put 1000's of rounds through it. This past Tuesday I had a group of injured Marines put 600 rounds through it. ALL ORIGINAL parts and not one FTE or FTF. It's also using the original mags! I love this pistol! The only down side is that I can't keep nite sites to keep up with this pistol!

Glock 22 is an ADEQUATE weapon only. It fires when you pull the trigger. The sig fits my hand like a glove and is a natural pointer. Extremely reliable and accurate. Glocks are overrated.

    P-220 St with light rail on dust cover.

    Whole department carries. They are touchy guns when it comes to reliability. They don't feed certain ammo well, and if you don't keep them very well lubricated and clean they are not happy.

    Pros: VERY accurate in single action out of the box. Very fast at follow up shots for a .45 due to heavy stainless steel slide. Comfortable grip with natural point of aim. It is a .45!

    Cons: Where do I start.
    1. Not reliable! I'm on my 3rd extratctor. Had to have the barrel feed ramp polished because rounds were catching and not feeding properly. Fireing pins broke. Slides won't lock back. Malfunctions if dirty or dry (mostly if dry). On range one wet rainy day with wind kicking up dust. Other manufacturers had no problems, but all the sigs on the range malfunctioned regardless of caliber.
    2. Capacity. 8 round mags is pretty 1970's. Time to modernize. Grip size is not much if any smaller than some modern double stacks.
    3. Trigger. The double/single sucks! Double is rediculously heavy. The single has way too much overtravel before resetting. Training for the change is a pain, but will make you a better shooter if you have the time patience and money to get good with it.
    4. Heavy. It's a boat anchor to carry around all day.
    5. Expensive. I don't know where they're getting $400, but everywhere I've seen new ones are much more expensive. Especially for civilians.
    I don't recomend this weapon. They were great in their day, but its time to retire.

    I own the P220 Combat Edition 45 ACP, i have owned and fired alot of guns in my life, this one is my favorite by far . It is not the most accurate but it is accurate. It is a tank and you can not stop it from performing as intended. Also because it has an actual Metal frame if you run out of ammo you still have the option to beat someone with it unlike a Glock or XD.

During the combat shoot, I was doing tactical reloads and dropping the clips in the dirt and they were getting stepped on and it still performed. Mine is the sig light model with a picatinny rail.

    The SIG-Sauer P220, often considered as the best “out of the box” .45 caliber double action pistol, started its life as the 9mm Pistole 75, the new double action sidearm for Swiss army. Developed during the early 1970s by the famous Swiss company Sweizerishe Industrie-Gesellschaft or SIG in short, this pistol was intended to replace the extremely accurate, but overly expensive SIG P210 pistol then in service with Swiss and some other armies.

    The name says enough about this product. The caliber completes the picture. This is a great weapon and you will not go wrong if you choose to buy this. A solid weapon and if you can find a sale its even better. Have fun shooting this one.

    SIG SAUER....need I say more? My last issued duty weapon was a Sig. I love these guns and own this firearm in .45. It's slim and can be carried concealed without problem. This site states that .38 Super and 7.65 Luger are obsolete...not true. Maybe just a little hard to fine, but you can obtain these calibers if you known where to look. Both Colt and S&W STILL make firearms in these two calibers. But, stick with .45. That's what the gun was originally designed to shoot.

    My favorite duty handgun, uniform or plainclothes. It fits my hand just right, I shot it better than any other handgun, and conceals very well with the right holster.
