The SIG Sauer P220 is a semi-automatic pistol. Designed in 1975 by the SIG Arms AG division of Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (now SIG Holding AG), and produced by J. P. Sauer & Sohn, in Eckernförde; it is currently manufactured by both SIG Sauer companies: SIG Sauer GMBH, of Eckernförde, Germany; and SIG Sauer, Inc., of New Hampshire, United States. With origins dating back to the late 1970s, the P220 is considered by many to be the one that started it all for SIG SAUER. This classic has been reborn, with the same quality, accuracy and reliability that the Swiss Army has relied on for decades. The P220 was built to meet and exceed rigorous military standards. Available in both carry and full-size, the legendary P220 lives on, allowing you to put all-metal power in your corner.

SIG Sauer P220 Features

The SIG Sauer P220 is an alloy-framed, semi-automatic pistol that operates on the classic Browning style tilting-barrel short recoil action.  Firing from a single- or double-action trigger pull, this pistol is built with a 4.4 inch barrel set in a stainless steel slide topped with windage-adjustable iron sights.  Along the front of the frame sits an accessory rail for mounting lasers and weapon lights.

SIG Sauer P220 Capacity

The SIG Sauer P220 is chambered in .45ACP and 10mmAuto.  Contrary to popular belief, this pistol does not feed from standard 1911 magazines, but uses a proprietary magazine that has a standard capacity of 8 rounds.  Extended 10 round magazines are available and are approximately 1 inch longer than the standard magazine and require a spacer sleeve to ensure proper insertion.

SIG Sauer P220 Ergonomics

Ergonomics
The P220 lacks an external manual safety, however it does include a de-cocking lever along the left side of the grip behind the trigger giving the user an additional yet smaller increase in safety due to the longer and heavier trigger pull needed to fire the gun.  The slide release sits over the grip and is easily reached by the thumb, and the Hogue style grip panels improve controllability when firing.

SIG Sauer P220 Fit & Finish

The P220’s frame is hard-coat anodized while the slide and barrel are finished with SIG’s incredibly durable Nitron coating.  These finishes improve the gun’s durability and resistance to damage from weather and wear.  


Fit and Finish

SIG Sauer P220 Concealability

Concealability
The P220 measures 7.7 inches long and 5.5 inches tall.  Combined with its width exceeding 1.3 inches, this pistol would be very difficult to conceal without heavy clothing.  The exposed hammer and the tang along the back of the grip can also cause discomfort when appendix carrying this full-sized pistol
