    Sig Sauer quality is way down. At least buying a Taurus, you are paying 1/3 the price, and the quality is decent

    The only problem that my sig p220 has is I can't afford to feed it. It's the best out of the box gun I've ever owned.

    So that's it?
    Seems kinda' thin even for the typical Sig bashing thread.
    Did you guys give up on 'Sigs rust'?

    Do a search on the boy, here, and a few other places, and you'll see where this is going, and what you can expect for answers from him. :rolleyes:

    The german made p230s were first class and reliable ....... cops loved them .... the latest batch of 232s the cops won't touch

    Dumb post, with no supporting evidence. My personal experience with Sig has been nothing but good.

    And your evidence supporting this is? Links? Articles?

    Just to defend and clarify the OP, his post...and the first 2 responses...were lifted from a much older (2009) thread and placed here. Enough time had passed that experiences have become dated...the OP's post was in response to another thread on the subject.

    He isn't trolling

    Actually, if you look around at some other things he posted across the internet gun boards, you might have a change of opinion on that.

    He claims to have had troubles, but when asked just what the problems were, from people trying to help, he either doenst answer the question, or posts pics of rifle parts, and other guns that have nothing to do with a P232, or even a SIG.

    Do a Google search on his name and P232, and you will see hes been on many of the boards, and posts nothing of value, other than his displeasure with SIG and a P232, and most of the comments, are mostly from vague to out there, like the one that started this one. He just keeps coming back, stirring the pot from time to time.

    At first, I was starting to feel sorry for him, and even thought English might not be his first language. At this point, I think hes just screwing with us, and having a grand time at it to boot.

    Thank you

    Don't take my post as a blanket statement...it is only to clarify that the OP is short because it was detached from a longer thread.

    I'd give the OP the benefit of the doubt in this case and I hope his reading of this would help him consider his future postings with the awareness that he has come to the attention of some members

    I'll have to dis-agree........
    I have ordered and bought out of the counter a number of SIG's over the last year and ALL have been TOP Quality.
    Now as to comparing them to a Taurus.......
    I can't (don't own a Taurus) but if I compare them to my Ruger's, which are 1/2 the price, the SIG's are still a better built gun! (Worth the price difference? Can't say).
    My grandchildren will be able to have my SIG's. That's how good they are. In my mind.

    If this is true they must have been really something. Most of my C.F.pistols are 1911s but the P226 that I bought a month ago impresses me,It's operation has been flawless.

    I had a SIG 1911 that was dreadful, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy a new P-series pistol even though they are no longer German-made. In fact I am lusting after a single-action P220 (the gun I should have bought instead of the 1911).

    There is a good deal on those at CDNN right now. IIRC under $700

    I own 3 Rugers that were my grandfather's. He owned those guns as long as I can remember and he has been dead for 15 years. One of them is the most accurate centerfire handgun I have ever shot.

    So I'd say they are pretty high quality too.

    Got a SP2022 built in US in Dec. 2010, have not had a single issue with it yet (2000 rnds) and it is supposed to be their "budget" gun. With the quality of this lesser priced Sig ($394) I'm looking forward to my next Sig. 226 or 229 just can't decide yet.
