    I think this setup would sell big over here in the US but I doubt sig will ever do this. If it's anything like the other 9/40/357 2022's it would be a hard to beat bargain, reliable pistol. I think I would be forced to finally buy a 2022. Some reason I have passed on the 2022 several times for other guns but it still interest me. I will probably get one eventually but one chambered in 45 would definitely speed the process, lol

    That would be a pretty good seller. Since the 2022 is Sigs bargain piece next to the 250 but I'm not a fan of the 250, I hate the trigger on it.

    You know, I have so fixated on the p2022 in 9mm and .40 that the thought of a p2022 in .45acp never really occurred to me...LOL. But now that you have mentioned it I have say it would appeal to me a lot.

    Yeah I'm not to fond of the trigger of the p250 as well. I think the thought process was that Americans love their revolvers so they would love that type trigger on a semi auto. The only dao trigger I want is to be on a revolver unless it was made really smooth like say the dak or lem. Still I prefer striker or da/sa type triggers. If sig does release such a beast as a 2022 in 45 acp I will probably for sure grab one. I just wonder would it have 8 or 10 round mags.

    This is a very interesting thought indeed! I would have to buy my third sp2022 then.

    Never thought about it before, but I'd be interested if they came out with one. I love my 9mm sp2022 and would love to try out a .45acp version.

    The more I think about it a 45 2022 would be about the size of a 220 carry so it would probably hold 8 rounds. Man I'm getting all excited over nothing, it will not happen. Sig has bigger fish to fry

    I disagree. It would be 8 Rds if it was a single stack but if in true 2022 form I'm thinking 10 to 12 rounds. If it was a single stack it would be like a budget 227

    Ok I will go with 10, not 12 since the 40 holds that many

    They do have 10rd mags depending on your state. Glad mine isn't one of those.....lol

    They have just introduced the P227. I can't speak for them or read their corporate mind, but it seems this ship has sailed. One of the reasons we appreciate the 2022 is the value. In the US it still undersells every Glock under the sun, unlike the much more popular P series. In Europe the 2022 is the bestselling SIG, with large government contracts.

    It seems the company is content with the low US sales. How often do we see the 2022 advertised in the glossy magazines? It seems SIG has decided to focus on the P series expansion in North America. They never seem to run out of new styles. That's my impression. Of course it can be overturned in an instant by a SIG boardroom decision, but right now I don't see an affordable SIG PRO in 45.

    I think Mercator is probably right, but what a shame. The p2022 is a phenomenal value for the price.

    Just out of curiosity, is the .45acp pretty much an American caliber? Or is it common elsewhere?

    American as apple pie.
    Edit: Shows up here and there, but by and large, 9mm rules the world.

    I've never been in the military and have never been outside the United States...have no idea what calibers are most popular in Europe and Asia...guessing the .45 is not common elsewhere then?

    Would still love to see the p2022 in .45 though

    I would love it. If Sig could keep the price around $550, i would get one a heart beat. But Sig doesn't make the 2022 in 45ACP:mad:
