Anyway, I'm about sold. I wonder though; why is the SR-10 more than the K2? I'm not a big fan of .45 over 9mm. If I want something bigger I will go to my 10mm most of the time. I can't wait until they offer these in 10mm. Also, the B6 is available. Ever look at one of those? I saw one in the travelogue...
Most places the ST10 and the K2 are within $10 of each other. Buds has the black ST10 for $460 and the K2 $464. Good luck!

Well, Davidson's has the ST10 in black on sale this week, so I went ahead and ordered it. Won't have it for a month... I've still got a pistol my guy is holding for me that I'm picking up next week. So, two things... One, my gun dealer is a saint among men, and two, I am more excited about this pistol than I have been since I got my Elite Match!

So, Mr. GreatMoose, have you tried any +P in your SAR? I don't need +P+... I'm not a maniac haha! But being able to run, say, a 50-round box through to ensure feeding and function and then carry it for lawful concealed carry would be amazing!

Havent run any +p through it yet, but there's absolutely no reason to doubt it's ability to do so. You could probably run +p it's entire life and it'd be fine. It's a stout gun.

Have you priced the Sig SP2022? It comes in 40, 9mm, and there is a 357 barrel out somewhere and these can be had for around $400 and change.

Why would they pick the 2022 over st-10? The 2022 isnt anything special

Why buy a Sig clone when an affordable Sig can be had?

The 2022 is no where near as nice as the st-10

I also own a 2022. It's an amazing piece, but they're not exactly apples and oranges. The ST10 is essentially a USP, not really similar to the Sig except in size. As much as I love my 2022 (and I really do), the ST10 is nicer and better built. I've never seen a gun built this "perfectly". It might even be a little "over tight", not sure how it would do in a sand test. Might be great. Dunno.

So, Sig is a great name and they make great pistols. But there are a couple of things to consider... Their 1911s, which really are just like any other 1911, are priced at what looks like $200 more just for the name. I understand that, and agree that if you have buuilt up a nice reputation around your product, you should take advantage of that! That said, a Sig that costs $400 (by my previous reasoning) is really only worth $275-$300. Still, that would be ok. I have purchased a couple of EAA Witness pistols at that price and have been very happy.

My biggest concern about that particular Sig is that it looks like it's Poly, and while poly has its place, I'm currently in the market for a full-size combat pistol and I prefer those with steel or alloy frames. Nothing wrong with poly. I've got a couple of those, too. The main thing that guided my decision here was the fact that the Sigs I like are out of my price range (if only by $150 or so), and, even though it's not always a good idea with firearms, I like to try new things. Whenever you hear people talk about guns, all you ever hear is Glock (blech), H&K, and Sig. I would like an H&K Mk23, and there are some nice enough Sigs. But this looks nice, and if a pistol is good enough for use by the world's second largest standing army and can be had for less than $450, I figure it's worth a try. At the least, it will be fun to take out and shoot every now and then, and at best, it could be an amazing firearm, built well to last a lifetime, and me and GreatMoose will be in on the "ground floor" haha

THanks for the recommendation though. I may have considered it but I already have my ST-10 ordered. It's waiting for me; I just can't get it until next month. Gun Genie had a sale on small-frame Witness Poly compacts for $290. Can't beat that!

Definitely interested on hearing updates once you get some range time! I'm like you and would prefer to buy this new while no one else has it than to pick up a used USP for the same price. Plus I like that it has the extra heft over the USP with the alloy frame. It looks absolutely beautiful!
