Default Sp 2022

I bought my SP2022 not too long ago, without being a target pistol, it shoots pretty good, no complaints.
I would like to ask if there is an easier way to strip the pistol to take out the slide, unless I am doing something wrong I need three hands holding the pistol and the slide and pushing the pin/slide catch all at the same time.
I am not that crazy about the plastic recoil spring guide, if somebody knows a source for a metal spring guide , please let me know, thanks

Are you liking your P2022? What caliber? What price?

I did a google search for sig steel guide rod and came back with this site

http://ssguiderods.com/shop/sig-sauer-s2022-guide-rod/

As for take down, First assure there is not a round in the chamber and there is not a loaded magazine close at hand.
I use my right hand to support the firearm while using my right index finger to press on the pin, just put a bit of pressure on it. Then with my left hand gripping the top of the slide by the rear sights begin to move the slide rearward. As the slide moves rearward there will be a spot that you will feel the pin push through, at that point let the slide move all the way forward slowly and then still holding the firearm with your right hand you can pull the slide release/takedown pin with your left hand. Then slide the slide off.
Hope that helps, it's kind of hard to describe.

I have always liked the Sig Sauers, mine came from Academy 40 cal, have not been disappointed, a little heavy for CC but I am looking for a holster.
I paid 460.00 including tax.

Sig makes a serpa type holster for it that fits like a glove. They also make a magazine holster. If you wanna spoil yourself, Crimson Trace makes a set of Laser Grips for it as well.

Got some hands on time with the 2022. I won't claim it's the best 9mm I've ever shot but I was impressed overall. The price just seems wrong but I'm not going to complain. Offer a quality handgun for under $500 and you'll get no protest from me.

However, if I were to buy one I would definitely replace the guide rod. I've heard some pretty decent arguments about using plastic but I think there is part of my brain that has a hard time accepting it. This despite the fact that I know quite a few owners who have not modified theirs and never had an issue.

If you carry iwb try old faithful holsters. I carry my sp2022 in one and I can hardly tell it is there.

Check out SpringCo, they make a two piece steel guide rod/ recoil reducer. I got one for my .40, and it helps a bit with quick follow up shots.

I have one in my 1911 but its a one piece but it definitely helps with reduced felt recoil and allows for faster follow up shots.

a steel guide rod will add a little weight to the muzzle end. Otherwise, it will not make your pistol work better. It could give a shooter more confidence by the magic of placebo.
I am new to this site but not to the business.
