I cant speak for all Sigs, but I love my P220. Most comfortable and accurate shooting pistol I have ever had the opportunity to fire and for the price I paid for it one of the best deals too.

P220, Tritium night sights, 3 mags and custom engraving For $600 direct from Sig

My brother in law from Topeka HAD a 220. I'm hardcore into IDPA, shooting glocks. I invite him to a match. He is **** talking the whole time about his 220 stainless and how great of a gun it was and it had never malfunctioned.

First stage, fail to extract. Twice.
Second stage, twice again.

Best part of it all, after the first fte, somebody hollers " that's a sig for ya" but I get the glare, he thought it was me.



3 trips back to SIG and it was finally corrected and promptly sold.




I want one in 357. But its not high on the list.

Well nothing in life is 100% perfect man. I'm sure there is a story like that for ever make and model weapon out there today.

I will never understand people who work so hard to force the factory to make good on a warranty & then just sell off the gun after all that work?

Maybe because you spent hundreds more than a glock and expect not to need warranty work. Then the first two trips back result in a big pile of the same issues. At that point you are jaded with the brand and have lost all faith in them and the product.

Add in the fact that you don't know anyone who's sent a glock or an HK back for factory work. Your pretty well pissed now.

So its fixed. It functions. Be rid of the whole situation.

Sorry, I still don't get it.
Then again I haven't gotten rid of a personal owned gun in 25 years, I just like to buy them...

Hay man I understand where your coming from and its unfortunate that this happened to your brother in law with his Sig. It's your right to condemn all sigs if you so wish, but i'm just saying you might want to be a little more level headed. Military weapons fail all the time. If the Army or MC stopped every time a weapon system failed we would all be speaking Russian right now. Step back and take a breather man. Sometimes s**t just happens. Speaking as someone who owns both a USP and a Sig id say they are both great pistols and they both have pros and cons. When it comes right down to it, its just the same ol Ford Vs. Chevy argument man.

I'm level here.

In all of my IDPA local and abroad, I've seen two guns with the most problems.

1911's and SIG.



I don't condemn them, hell, I just got another 1911. And like I said, I plan on getting a SIG. In 357. I may just love it enough to promote them.
