It's funny that you ask this question because I just sent Sig an email about this and here is their response:


Rich,

Thank you for your email.

+P is fine to use as a defensive round or for occasional range use. Continual use of this round will make it necessary for more frequent service on the pistol. We do NOT recommend the use of any +P+ round. This may void your warranty.

Most manufacturers will say DO NOT USE +P+ as their is no set ceiling on pressure. I have 4 different +P+ types of ammo and to be honest some +P have more severe recoil, but recoil doesn't always reflect pressure. I would go on the Sig forum and ask this question, also if the beretta M9 can handle Nato rounds I would not hesitate to fire them in an SP2022, this gun is built soundly. I have the SP2022 with the Ifalon finish and have shot numerous rounds both standard, +p and +p+ and the gun shows no problems. I believe a steady diet of +p and +P+ will increase wear, but as far as longevitiy, it all depends upon the design and strength of materials and recoil spring rating.

Some companies say +p is fine on some of their guns, I believe some of CZ's models reflect this. With todays litigating, ambulance chasing, dirt bag lawyers, companies play it safe.
