    Got mine about a month ago.

    Several hundred rounds through it with no problems to date. The extra weight sure makes it a smoother shooter than my standard SIG. Enjoy! Good shooting;)

    Welcome to the ST collective!

    IMHO, my 220ST is the softest-shooting, most accurate, and prettiest DA .45acp pistol available. Shoot the heck out of it, and enjoy!

    Kaxter, Cograts on a very sharp pistol. Be careful though Sigs can tend to get a little
    addicting.

    How's the double action trigger pull? A rental P220 that I've recently shot had the nicest double action pull on any semiauto I've tried (not that I've tried a whole heckuva alot), and I'm wondering if that was a trend.

    The classic SIG P-series pistols have good triggers fresh from the factory. SIG triggers tend to mellow and break-in with use....you can usually tell a big difference after the first 1000 rounds. My 220ST has the sweetest DA trigger of all my DA pistols--including HKs, CZs, SIGs. I thought my vintage 220s had great triggers, until I got the ST. It seems the 220s are more consistent as far as good triggers are concerned. I've fired some P228s, 229s, and 226s, with varied trigger quality.

    Congrats. to all you new P220 st owners !

    I just got mine Wednsday.Funny how i bargained for it though.....
    i saw at a gun dealer's shop up here in Baltimore,Md. for $720 for a " Factory Refurbished " one.I called 4 other stores to see if they had one for less.One store said they would sell me one for $640.Two weeks later they still were not able to get me one.Their distributor had none in stock,just p229 in .40 cal..But i held out,i insisted on the-one-and-only legendary " P220 ".
    So three weeks later i went back to the original store and paid $700 plus tax and state police title fee,an extra $45 dollars.

    My stainless steel beauty looks and feels brand-new !
    All the parts appear new,the mags., new,and not a scratch or blemish on any part,interior or exterior.

    She feels great in my hand,and i'm sure the extra weight will help with my hot plus +p loads that i'll be shooting.

    They say that Speer Gold Dots 200 grain +P's are the way to go for my 4.5 inch barrel.Powerful enough to blow the eyes out of a Cow's head when fired between the eyes.

    My beautiful pet Sig ! She cost me alot of money ,but,then again,the best is ALWAYS worth it !
    :cool: :cool: :cool:

    Stiff DA pull on my new P220 st

    Sorry....i forgot to add that i find my DA pull i little on the stiff/heavy side.
    This is probably because it's been reconditioned,and maybe TOO much.
    But like the posters say,it will sweeten-up as i use and practice with it.
    My gun comes in a Red plastic case,probably because it's a Refurbished one.
    B.T.W. I like the " Uncle Mike's " Kydex Holster for this P220 model.And it's only $15.00 dollars.
    The " MidwayU.S.A. " website has great prices with low Shipping and Handleing fees to-boot.

    Happy Shooting and Tight Grouping !:cool: :cool: :cool:
