Default Sig 227

I have been thinking about purchasing the Sig 227. Even though I love my Sig 1911's I do think there is something to being able to carry 14 rounds of 45 in your firearm. Does anyone have any reviews from their usage of the 227.

The 220 and 226 have superb track records and the 227 is a 226 chambered for 45. While it is new and I'm generally not a fan of early adoption, sig has a very very good record releasing problem free guns in centerfire.

I haven't seen one in person but I do own and have a LOT of trigger time on a p220.

No P227 trigger time here, but plenty of Sig experience otherwise.

I'd echo JonM's sentiments. If the gun fits your hand well, it'll probably be great. The P220 and P226 are both excellent, time-tested designs. This is like a combination of the two, but thicker than either. So get ahold of one and make sure that bulky grip doesn't deter you (it'll be a far cry from a single-stack 1911).

My only double-stack 45acp is a Springfield XDm. Great fit...for me.

14 rounds? The article at the American Rifleman website says 10rd capacity.

I've owned and shot Sig P22* series pistols since 1989. I've owned and shot 1911s since 1984...

I've always considered the 1911 somewhat anachronistic, a great gun that's been eclipsed by greater guns, as time and evolution are want to do.

Although I enjoy the 1911, especially a well healed one, it has never been my first choice in .45.

Neither has the P220. Now I would pick the P220 over a 1911 primarily because of the technological advances evident in the P220. It is as accurate and is simply a more refined, more reliable and safer pistol to carry and handle.

My preference has gone for the last 15 years or so to the HK USP .45 series of pistols. Okay, I cringe at plastic pistols. I really do. But these are great guns and most of the preference comes not only from their performance, but the fact they run so well in my hands and "feel right".

Now comes the P227. Let me start off by telling you everything that's wrong with this gun............................................... .........................

1.You can't get it without the silly Rambo rail, otherwise I think it would fit in my P220 & P226 carry rigs & holsters (Maybe I can grind it off and not void the warranty).
2. It really makes the 1911 look old. I mean Model T, 8 track tape, black and white TV -- with an aerial stuck on the roof, full service gas station with uniformed attendants and oil changes old.

I normally prefer full sized .45s. I've never been impressed by the USPc, for example, or the commander or those dinky little ones so many are producing these days. Not that there's anything wrong with having a lot of fire power in a small package, heck I carry a 340pd every day. After the opportunity to shoot both the Carry and the regular size, I chose the Carry not because it shot any better, but because it shot and handled just as well. For those rare occasions when I do conceal carry a full size, it's a P226 in either a Serpa or a Miami. Not that this gun is really that much smaller.

Is the gun perfect? Not quite. I'm a fan of the SRT, since getting one in my X5. I'd like one in the P227. Made a note to get one. And I'm left handed. It would be nice to swap the mag release button around and I've not got around to seeing if it can be done yet. And I'd like to shave off the silly rail.

Then it will be a perfect .45, at least for me.

I just got my p227 today, traded my STI Spartan 1911 for it(with some cash on my end) and gotta say it seems solid. Mine is the Nitron model w the 4.4" barrel, I will post a range report after I get a chance to fire it. Also there is a SAS version that doesn't have a rail.
