Sig P220 Grips

Strange. I have full replacement grips from Pachmayr for my P220, but they only show a slip-on available for that model. Anyone know if they discontinued the full replacement?

Re: Sig P220

Odd. Probaly discontinued, the 220 is not a real popular gun. Nice, but never caught on in volumes like the 226 or 228. Probaly snooty .45 aficianados and their beloved 1911.

Re: Sig P220

I put it back to "stock", so here's a pic of the grips.

Also, the Sprinco Recoil Reducer that I removed.

Re: Sig P220

Bravo on returning it to stock It drives me insane watching people turn fine, reliable, "bullet proof" combat arms into finicky, gimicky, unreliable POS all in the name of "improvement", "accuracy", or whatever. Back when I was training students, it was amusing to see all the crap people brought to the classes, how "bitchen" they thought it was, and the "I guess you were right" look on their faces when their tarted up weapon took a crap on them, or broke somethting, or wouldnt function. We then made them shoot our Glocks

Oh I see blame it on us , ok you have a point. All I have done to my Sig's is Hogue's and some Meprolite's. It's hard to mess with a gun that works so well out of the box.


Dano

{edit} Pachmayr's/Lyman's site only shows the slip-on style now...that sucks as I have never been a big fan of the slip-on grips.

Re: Sig P220 Grips

I have a 220 and it is my least favorite sig. Partly because it is a singlestacker, (which is why some like it) partly caliber, but mostly astetics. The 220 is just not quite as pretty as its siblings to me.

Re: Sig P220 Grips

I love the trigger on the P220, but really don't care for the overall gun looks.

HK USP fullsize in .45ACP for me! Gees I love that gun, combat reliable, target accurate. WOW. No mods to date, only mod forthcoming, meprolites...

Re: Sig P220 Grips

Since when do people buy guns for "looks"?

It's tauted as one of the easiest .45's to shoot out of the box and the NC State Police use them as their standard duty weapon (or did at the time I bought mine, in 1997). Good enough for me.

The state police, as in the highway patrol? Now those guys get stuck with POS beretta tomcats (or some name like that) in .357Sig...

I "heard" they were getting Sigs again. I surely hope that they do.

It depends on why you're buying one. If all you are looking for is a tool, I'd agree, it doesn't matter.

If you're an enthusiast, looks will get you more excited to go shooting, kinda like a nice looking bike.(and adding carbon fiber pieces) There are lots of options, and plenty of other guns that work as well as the 220.

I think the 220 is OK, but love my 1911. (but not due to looks )
