While its going to be a long time before I get one I've decided I want to get a Sig. Obviously I've heard of the P-226 but any other recommendations?
I have to agree with Sonic the 226, although I love this gun, is definitely a gun that you wouldn't want to carry daily.The 229 is a better ccw.I hear alot of great things about the 239 as a carry piece.Some thing else you might want to consider is the fact that on some of these pistols you have the ability to buy conversion barrels.Thing is that you can go from 40. or 357. down to 9. And it's about $150 per barrel.But to go from 9 to 40. and 357. will cost you better than $350 for an exchange kit.P229- large enough for a decent range gun and a little more compact than a P226. And designed specifically for the .40 SW but available in 9mm as well. Plus a rail is on the P229 if that interests you.
I've been thinking about buying a couple conversion kits as well. That was my primary thought in trading for my P250. I traded an XD40 tactical for it.rhyno13 said:I have used many Sig's in my life but my P250 9mm is the first one I have owned. I bought the exchange kit that turns it into a .45, and made it my every day CC peice.
How do you feel about that Zastava? I've seen them and have wondered. I have one 229, I'm getting one for Christmas (buying it for myself lol), but would almost like to get an EZ9...gunback said:My wife's first sig is the P239, and she loves it. I have not got a sig yet but I did get a zastava Ez40 that is built like the sig p229
Planning on getting a 220 carry some time here in the near future.Let me know how you like yours .Been planning on a 45 for better than a year and with the help of some of the guys here decided on the 220.I think the P226 is a great choice for your 1st SIG, it was my first. The problem with SIGs is, one is never enough. My 2nd was a P239, which is my primary carry gun. My 3rd, and probably my favorite, is a P225. My 4th, which I just ordered this last weekend and haven't received yet, is a P220 Carry SAS Gen 2 SAO. I can't wait to shoot it and plan on making it my EDC gun. My 5th ... don't know yet but I'm thinking P228.
I'd highly recommend going out and shooting some. I shot half a dozen different brands of handguns before I decided on SIG. You need to understand why you're buying a handgun; target shooting, home defense, carry? What caliber? Magazine capacity? Trigger DA/SA, DAK, SAO? There's a SIG that will meet your needs.
