SIG P226 vs Beretta M9
 
Which one should I get. Im leaning towards the M9

P226 is a muuuuuuch better gun. Higher quality parts and metals better fit and finish much more durable better accuracy. Had one the only reason i sold it was it was in 9mm. Ive still got my p220 same gun just shoots 45acp. Wonderful gun.

Biggest difference is the price tags. A sig is unholy expensive.

P226, hands down. But of course it is more expensive.

I've shot both quite a bit. The M9 is a good gun and a reasonable choice for its price point. My issue is that it's massively overbuilt and oversized. For similar guns I would greatly prefer a CZ 75 (similar price to the Beretta) or a BHP (similar price to the Sig). Both have slimmer profiles and point a lot better for me.

I've always been a little "down" on the M9/92. More about personal preference than its actual function. I generally don't like guns to be unnecessarily big. These are the 4 metal-framed semi-auto platforms that I really like:

1911
CZ 75
Browning Hi-Power
Sig P220/226/229/239

Your mileage may vary.

If you're willing to throw down 3k, then this little beauty might pique your interest.

It can be had for less, I saw one at a gun show for $1500 but I wasn't in the market for one in 9mm since I had bought the 220X6 but I wish I had the money at the time.

Can you tell me where? And are you sure that wasn't the Equinox and not the Black and White?

Yeah but the gun show in question was about 2 weeks ago so not a lot of use there. It was in FREDERICKSBURG Va and yes I am sure it was a 226X6 being I am an actual owner of a 220X6 and not just a picture finder on the web....... Here is mine

Dang you GunRunner! With all your high end SIGs and hot wife!

OP. I own a SIG 1911 and a Beretta. You can't go wrong. Pick one and know you have a winner.

Kenney 03-29-2012 01:26 AM

If I could own a SIG Sauer p226 X5 Black and White, I would. But the MSRP is $3000 and I haven't found one any cheaper. Regardless, nice ass gun you have there.
