    I've owned several Sigs through the years. I always liked them (226's and 220's) but the only one that I ever really "bonded" with was the 220. However, my particular 220 was not a good example of Sig's reputation for being an out of the box super-shooter.

    My particular 220 had some issues (Exeter version) and I could never really trust it. I've always read about how great the true West German pistols were. I thought, yea, maybe. So I've been on the lookout for WG for about a year, but didn't want to mortgage the house to get one!

    I finally found a WG 220 at a super-duper price . . . . and guess what? My particular WG 220 is a much better pistol than my particular Exeter 220 was.

    Now, I really get it. I think I've bonded . . . . :eek:

    Congrats on the WG P220. What year is the P220 that you didn't bond with? Quality seems to be rebounding (if you don't look at hastily introduced new products) in the 'Classic' series BUT the old West German pistols just feel better and are ALL solid performers.

    FWIW, all my newer vintage Sigs are very reliable and highly accurate. I know from all the complaints in the community that they put out some lemons in recent history I just haven't gotten one or wasn't looking at new guns when they were making them.

    It's not just sig. All the companies are putting out more lemons than they use to.
