Looking for a 9mm Sig or H&K
 
I am in the market for a 9mm. I have a H&K USP in .45, absoulutely love it. It is just $$ to shoot. I am looking at Sig as a choice for 9mm. Any suggestions on what model? My sisiter has/had a sig not sure the model it was a single stack though, shot pretty nice. I am wanting a double stack. Suggestions on a sig, or should I just stick with H&K?

Have you looked into a conversion kit to 9mm for your HK?

That way you would have both calibers on that pistol.

On the Sig question, I would go either for a Sig P220 (hard to get, but very tough), a 226 or a 228.

I money isn`t a downer you could always go for a SIG 210, but they are very hard to get, since they are not made anymore, but one of the most accurate pistols around.

Maybe not the prettiest baby around, but very accurate.

There is nothing wrong with the Sig as a choice for a good, reliable 9mm. It's definitely going to be cheaper than a comparably equipped H&K.

Is there a reason you are limiting your choices to those two brands?

226 is my choice, a tack driver with 0 problems in over 4000 rds.

sig has a new pistol out called the 250, this this is awsome. you can interchange barrels, calibers, and frames. its trigger action is like that of an ar15. its sweet

The Sig 226 is one of the military's issue pieces that sees heavy use with special operations units. While not my favorite pistol, I'd trust my life to one of them. Also, if you still live in a free state, the 226 can easily be suppressed with off the shelf parts. IIRC, Sig makes their own threaded barrels for the SOCOM's 226R.

The 226 was adopted by the Navy and USMC when the M9 stared to blow apart shortly after being adopted by the DoD as the replacement for the 1911.

There is a ridiculously long list of agencies world wide that use the Sig 226 as their official piece. You'd be hard pressed to find another pistols that is in such wide use.

Why not go with the 9mm USP-C H&K? Since you have already stated that your love your .45, the 9mm will have exactly the same features you are familiar with, but much less expensive to practice with. On the plus side, being a compact would make it much easier to CC if and when you want to.

The sheer bulk of even the compact USPs makes them a bad choice for concealed carry, they print like crazy. The 226 is more streamlined.

I will agree there are better guns for concelement purposes, but thus the use of the words "much easier" and "if and when". They were in reference to the .45 he already owns. I was just thinking that since the shooting cost was the main reason to get a 9mm, why not get what was already comfortable and known to be a top of the line reliable model.

But since I own a H&K .40 myself I am kind of biased ;)

I have two Sig P229's. One in .40 and one in 9mm. Both are the DAK R models and they are great works of art. The 9mm is extremely pleasant to shoot and the .40 is very controllable. Both are very concealable and are listed on my CCW.
