If you like the heavy trigger pull and extra levers, then go for it.

I'd settle for the Glock!

Go shoot it and compare.

SIGs have soul, brother. If you want something that doesn't sit in your hand all blocky...

Sorry. Had to give equal time, especially for my beloved 226.

Depends on which generation glock and which gen Sig and the respective conditions of both.

All things being equal, the Sig is a much nicer gun.

Nothing wrong with the Glock, but if he is talking about an even trade for guns in comparable condition, I would trade in a minute. You would come out better from a financial position and could always get another Glock.

Wouldn't give it a 2nd thought -- TRADE! The Sig's a much better gun

A decent condition Sig Sauer P226 in most cases I'd do the trade.

Sounds familiar, I'm selling my G22 to help finance a Sig P229!

Never could shoot that Glock worth a damn.

Shot a Sig P229 and fell in love.

Well would you rather have 9mm or 40s&w? I would personally keep the 40.

Anyone know how to find the age of a Sig?:confused:

does it have an internal or external extractor? west germany on the slide? no rail?plastic grips without the 226 molded into it?if so its an older gun i belive .

I would keep the glock but I like glocks more than sigs. If you want a 9mm just buy a conversion barrel for your glock.

I would try to have both. All you will get on this threaed is personal prefernces, and not to forget some strong dislikes for Glock, dont kow why. But the fact is that both are great pistols otherwise one these companies would not be in business anymore. That said, if you can only keep one then take them both to the range and shoot few mags to see which you shoot better with.

I have a Glock 29 and a Sig 226. I only bought the glock for the 10 mm subcompact. ONLY reason. I do like it, but its no SIG thats for sure. The 226 is a laser beam. Its probably the most accurate hand gun I own even on my worst day. You cant go wrong with the biggest hand gun contract winner out there.

The Sig will always be worth more then the glock. You can probably take a beat up worn finish Sig and get what you could for a excellent low round count Glock.

With that said, my glock was $450 with 5 extra mags and 2 holsters and mag holder. With 25 rounds through it. And a box of 20 rounds of hydrashock.

My 226 was almost double that in same condition with 2 mags all stock.

Do the numbers and you ll be out ahead investment wise. But if you like the glock alot, then I guess its only a done deal if you want to make money.

Its really personal preference. The glock is an excellent weapon. Just not as fine tuned and precision as a Sig. Either will get the job done at the end of the day. Just figure out what you like best , and then you ll have the answer.

Good luck

( GO SIG LOL ) !!!

Thanks for all the replys the only problem I have had with the Glock is not the gun itself but the cal I am not as accurate with the .40S&W as I am with the 9MM or .45ACP. I don't know if its true or not a gunstore employee told me he has gotten alot of complaints for that reason the barrels in the .40 are loose, like I said thats what was told to me.

Have you tried glocks in 9mm and .45 and are basing your comparison on that? If not, it's apples and oranges.

I'd personally get the sig... glocks are good guns, but the sig fits my hand better and is much more accurate in my experience. I have a couple of .40 glocks and a G30, as well as a P226 9mm. If I could only have one semi-auto, it would be the Sig.

Yes I have shot different guns in .40S&W my wife has a Sig P-229 she can shoot it very well.

February 28, 2008, 12:12 PM
I would stick with the Glock. If the Sig was a .40 or .45 on the other hand...

Anyone know how to find the age of a Sig?

There is a date code stamped on the bottom of the slide, underneath the muzzle, just in front of the dust cover.

It is visible with the slide forward and the pistol fully assembled.

The code is two letters.


For example, my AB coded 225 was made in 2001. AB = 01.

I'd rather have the SIG. Also, even if you don't like it, the used SIG retails for more than a used GLOCK, condition being equal.
Cheaper to shoot too.

If your buddy ever wants to trade his Ferrari for a Pinto, let me know, I'll get my hands on a into quickly and buy you both lunch while we do the deal.
