    Sorry, don't know anything about the 2022 or 2340s. I've got a 229R SCT that I like very much. Picture included.

    The question is, what do you intend to do with the gun? Home defence? Carry? Range only?

    Here is an old review of my SP2022

    I put in a low bid on a no reserve auction and winner winner chicken dinner! I have a LNIB Sig Pro SP2022

    Took it our for a spin today. It was very smooth. No malfunctions in about 150+ rounds. I believe it is one of the french contract guns. It has the ifalon finish with triple serial numbers but no proof marks. Came with 2 grips, Sig lite night sites and 2 mags. These were made in Germany so my no Exeter reputation is still in tact for all the fanboys keeping track.

    Found the trigger to be very different then the P series. It is much longer DA pull. I found myslf saying wait for it wait for it in my mind as I shot it in DA. More like the DAK trigger than the standard DA trigger on the P series. IIRC it has a different trigger box that is unique to the Sig Pro. The SA is slick. Super smooth and nice predictable reset. Had to think a bit too much on the DA but I am sure I can get used to it given enough trigger time.

    It grouped well for me and was pretty much point of aim. Here is a 15 round target at 10 yards. Not too bad. Got that one little guy out of the red. My guess is I was a little too on the trigger and pushed that one. I know it was not the DA shot.

    All in all in the sub $450 category this gun is a steal. There is almost nothing out there that you can get for under $500 that will be as nice out of the box except maybe the CZ 75B.

    Check on out if you can.

    I carry a 2022 in 9mm at work and havnt had any problems with it. At the range for qualifications we put around 2000 rounds through them. I had no problems. It went bang every time. We were using Federal Hydro shok +P and it fed well. Sig light night sights were bright and easy to pick up.

    Pros: Reliable
    Cheap

    Cons: 10 round mags have very stiff springs. 15 round mags are fine.
    Some of the females thought the DA trigger pull was very long and heavy.
    Depending on your hold the decocker will pinch your thumb.
    Depending on hold slid lock can be hit while firing.
    Feild stripping can be difficult on a new weapon until you break it in/loosen it up.

    Some of the less experienced shooters were having trouble with the issues above. So learn the nominclature and become familiar with the weapon if this is your choice. I would recommened this pistol for you.

    Mine is 9mm.

    The sp2340 IIRC is discontinued. The Sp2022 is basically the same gun without the rounded trigger guard.

    Sp2022 is slightly bigger.

    The trgger feel is different. P229 is a shorter stroke. The Sp2022 is longer.

    Polymer vs Alum as you know.

    About $200 NIB.

    They have a different feel in the hand.

    Polymer is lighter and doesn't rust, but some people prefer the feel of a metal frame, it's mostly personal preference. As for the price difference, CDNN has the sp2022 for $399, P229's usually cost $800 and up new.

    I can't comment, from experience, on the four-numeral SIG pistols, but really do like my P229s. I own five, and am "qualed" with four of them. I am grateful that the P229 is one of the approved choices as primary duty pistols for the PD which employs me, as it is probably the most perfect factory double-action .40 autopistol for my hands. I carry them on my own time, too, as they are easy to conceal. I get maximum value by using the same guns for personal CC and HD, as for duty.

    There is a forum dedicated to SIGs, where I have learned much. I am not sure if it is kosher to post links; type sig forum (dot) com to get there.

    For home defence and the range I'd get a full size. Get the p226 IMHO.

    Same difference. IMHO the P229 and P226 are so close in size it matters not.

    the P229 is thicker than the P226. Lengthwise, the P229 is shorter by about half an inch, and has a little bit less length on the grip. I've got the 229 (.40) and my Dad has the 226 (9mm). In actual shooting, both feel almost the same. I haven't shot a P229 in 9mm so I can't say for certain, but comparing the previously mentioned pistols, the .40 seems to have less muzzle flip.

    You can't go wrong with the P229. You also can't go wrong with the SP2022. It's a Sig!
