I ordered this from SOG - $379 plus overnight shipping - $407 OTD.

Well, its definately got some wear but its tight and was pretty clean. Looks like a police trade-in - mostly holster wear. Came with one 7rd mag. but I ordered a couple of 8 rounders (Sig factory) from Midway.

This is the standard black decocker model with double action/single action. Although a little big, its very light weight due to the alloy frame. Much lighter than I expected. The trigger is great!

We will see how she shoots but given the condition alone, I'd order another one in a heart beat. They also have S&W 4583's (stainless 45 ACP) that are only $329...

I'm a big fan of 45ACP and just couldn't resist getting this Sig. I also have an XD, a Springfield 1911-A1, a Ballestar Molina, a Webley (converted to 45 ACP) and a really nice Colt 1917 in this caliber.

I'm going to make up some handloads tomorrow and take the Sig to the range for a test run.

I own a factory refurbished P220. Absolutely reliable. The original 7 round magazines exhibited a weird tendency. If fully loaded, inserted, drop the slide, the top round in the magazine has a tendency to "walk" forward from the mag lips. The gun is still 100% reliable but if you pull the magazine out for a tac reload, the top round typically falls out while you withdraw the magazine. The factory 8 round stainless bodied models don't do this AT ALL. I heartily recommend them with one caveat, never put one up the pipe with 8 in the mag because the spring sets and won't have enough force to make the slide stop work properly.

Do you have a link? Do they have more for sale?

I've been thinking about a P220.

You are gonna' love your P220. They are amazingly accurate (including used ones). With proper ammo, some range time, and a little "bonding" with the owner, will shoot right up there with many higher end 1911's.

I own two used P220's myself and always wonder why/how somebody could bear to part with such a fine machine.

A lot of shooters consider the P220 the premier handgun. I won't argue. Congratulations on acquiring a classic.

Thanks guys - the link to SOG is http://www.southernohiogun.com

They have quite a few other handguns not shown on the web site too - I have a C&R license so I get their catalog. They have 9mm, 40 and Sig Pro's too. All under $400. They also have P230's but for $449.

They also have a lot of Smith's - almost ordered a 4586 for $329 - basically the tactical equivalent to the P-220.

Here's a pic - loaded some ammo for it (shown) this morning and going to the range with her tomorrow.

The wear is superficial - she is tight and the bore is like new - carried a lot, shot little - there are no markings but I'd bet it's a police trade-in.

Not bad at all, my friend. You will dearly LUV your SIG P220. Now, all you
(and I) need are P220's chambered in 9m/m and .38 Super. Neither is easy
too find; but with the latter being very difficult~! Enjoy :scrutiny: ;) :D

Ala Dan -

That's my next quest. I just picked up my 2nd CPO, an all W. German P220. My first was a W. German frame with a new stainless Nitron'd slide. A .38 Super or a 9mm would be outstanding.

Sounds like you got a great deal on it. I have heard nothing but good things about the P220.

the top round in the magazine has a tendency to "walk" forward from the mag lips.

Mine has always done this, and has failed to feed exactly zero times in thousands of rounds.
