I had a Sig Sauer .9mm back in the early 90's and I can't remember if it was a 220 or 226 (I'm not up on semi-autos and my memory is going). It held 15 with one in the chamber. Anyhoo - I'm trying to remember how it was de-cocked. Are they the same as far as decocking?
Thanks.

That's where I'm drawing a blank...how exactly are they decocked?
Thanks.

IIRC, it could have been either. P220's have been available in 9mm.

But they are basically the same gun.

They decock via a lever in the front of the grip, you push it down and the hammer is released on the upswing the hammer is set down.

except for the capacity...15 (15+1) makes it a P226...they are decocked by pressing down on the decocking lever on the left side of the pistol...it drops the hammer into the safety intercept notch...no boom...

9mm P220s were single-stack 9-round magazines though. It was also available in .30 Luger and .38 Super, as well as .45 ACP.
