Default Range report

OK. So here is the report for the 227, only issue I had was a few time the slide would lock back. Tested both mags I have and ran it with Remington umcrap and Winchester service grade 1911 ball (ie, wwb). It ate them no problem just had about 3 or 4 times where it wouldn't lock back the slide. Ergonomically it felt and shot great. By the time I got to doing my grouping tests my hands were pretty worn out by 150 rounds of 45acp and 200 rounds of 9mm. I did notice a few times I pulled low and left but I put that on me as I was going back n forth between 2 triggers systems. A few other guys at the range really liked it as well. This is also the only non glock I've been able to do thumbs forward on with my grip as well. Thumbs up to SIG on that one. Needless to say after this range trip my arthritis is kicked in pretty good and hands are sore till next time. Also the target stand was right in line with the bench stand so I had to stand off to the left of the bench to shoot which is why I think most of them were left of the bull's-eye. I did notice this little gouge on my follower in one of my mags from the edge of the case. Not sure if it's common on SIG 45's. But all in all it shot well with no misfires, ftf, or FTE, just the slide lock back issue. And that could be a number of factors causing that. I didn't get as many rounds for the grouping tests as I did for the glock as I lost track of where I was at on the ammo for the 45 due to having fun and bs'in. All in all its a good gun and I will be having SIG work the trigger over with their action enhancement and srt kit.

I frequently have slide lock issues with my Sig P220 because I use a thumbs forward grip. I may start off consciously avoiding my thumb touching the slide lock, but it finds its way to contact at some point fairly often.

Thanks for the report. This is most likely my next gun. If they come out with a Legion version I will buy it the day it is available. I would think it would be a logical next move for the Legion line? They need a .45.

Ya, I was thinking it may be my hand catching it, especially towards the end more as my hands were getting worn out. Because like you I was consciously avoiding it when I grip it initially but it is possible that my hand rides up a little. I also think a legion series 45 should be their next move. From what I have read on a SIG PDF that you can put P220 slides on the 227 as well so if you wanted a 4 inch barreled sas slide you could do it. Interesting tidbit.

I have the Sig P227 Carry, and it has been a quality handgun, no failures of any kind, i only use 10rd Mags.
The fit and finish of this Mfg in USA Sig is real quality.

A nice discovery in examining the Legion line a bit more closely. They use the slide stop and decocking lever off of a P224, which are abbreviated controls, and I noted that I'm less likely to "ride" the slide catch when gripping the Legion pistols.

So, I will likely order some P224 controls for my P226.
