    OK, I've got 4 pistols:

    Bersa BP9cc
    FN Herstal FNS 40 S&W
    Glock 17
    Sig Pro 2022 9 mm

    My last purchase was the Sig, probably a result of panic buying, + the reputation that the pistol has developed.

    Since I've had it, it was been shooting low and right for me. I am not a pro by any stretch of the imagination, but if I shoot low, it's normally low and left, not right.

    So, yesterday, I took all 4 to the range as I've been mulling over selling the Bersa (after panic buying, I realized having cash is a good thing). Of course, I shot the best with the Bersa, and the Sig Pro was still low and left.

    Out of 30 rounds, I hit an 8" circle at 12 yards over 90% of the time with the Bersa, Glock, and FNS. I hit the circle 70% of the time with the Sig (21 of 30). Should I allow more time for breaking it in, aim to the high left of the target, or should I be concerned? Again, I am not a pro.

    Thank you.

    Wow I have had the exact opposite experience I originally took the predecessor [sig 2340] in on a trade. I had no intentions of keeping it but my son and I wanted to take it to the range and shoot it before I sold it. first shot at 40 ft was dead on. The most accurate hand gun I own. I have since sold it to my son and replaced it with the pro2022 wich is just as accurate jack

    I have a sig 2022 .40 that is extremely accurate.

    It's a german import with triple DE proof marks and serial #'s from before they started making the 2022 in the US. Dont know if that makes a difference.

    Sig Acuracy

    my Sig 220 combat 45 is the most accurate pistol out of the several large frame autos that I shoot.

    Try having someone else that is known as a good shot try your SP2022. The SP2022 has a reputation of being extremely accurate - typical SIG pistol.

    I love mine and it shoots great. Below was 15 rounds at 7 yards.

    Maybe the result of too many platforms. I can shoot each if my guns with amazing accuracy if I leave the others at home.

    Shooting accurately is shooting accurately. I would be far more intersted in how a gun groups than where it's point of impact is. Changing/drifting sights can fix point of impact. I have a 2022 and it is within a hair as accurate as my P226 which is the most accurate service type weapon I've ever owned. I only wish my Colt Gold Cup shot as well. I have to go to my S&W Model 41 to beat it.

    I also have a P229 in .40 that shot seriously low and left. It took me two front sight changes to fix the "low" and a tiny bit of drift to the rear sight to fix the "left". That gun now shoots to "point of aim" with my carry ammo and "6 o'clock hold" with practice ammo...

    It is shooter induced. My Sig P226 is the most accurate pistol I've owned or have ever shot. That kind of accuracy is typical of all Sig models. Don't worry about where the bullet is impacting. Keep the same point of aim and then aim or adjust sight in order to shift the point of impact to the bullseye. At the ranges that a pistol is used for (25yds), different ammo or other changes will have a minimal affect on accuracy. Accuracy is 99% a result of the shooter.

    Thank you all for the responses. I visited with a co worker who is a better shooter than I and much more familiar with pistols, and he had many thoughts which correlate closely with what you all have stated:

    1. Any Sig is normally a very accurate pistol.
    2. However, Sigs have a longer trigger pull than most. As I tend to shoot a little low with most pistols, I am probably jerking the pistol a little, or flinching, in anticipating the "bang." The longer trigger pull magnifies this issue, thus more of a miss.
    3. Shooting the Sig by itself when practicing will help fix the problem.

    So, with my new found advice, I shot 50 rounds at lunch today (that's all the 9mm ammo the range would sell me--imagine that!) Still low, but much tighter. So thank you all again.

    Glad to hear your shooting with the Sig has improved.

    I've owned the 2340 for a couple of years. I bought this pistol as a LEO trade-in. It has been a fantastic pistol! Zero ftf-fte. Arguably the best trigger I have fired. The 2340 is not my favorite pistol that I own, but probably should be.

    I own an all metal (they all are) Beretta 92f (steel guide rod & trigger) that has been my favorite for a long time. The 2340 is a close 2nd!!

    Any problems that I have had with the Sig have been shooter related, not pistol related.

    Ah, I solved the problem as I traded for a S&W M&P 40 today! That's probably the chicken way out, but I certainly shoot the S&W better. I wonder, with my big hands, if it's due to the larger frame of the S&W. In golf, we call the regular buying & selling of clubs to find a better game, "hoing". So now I'm developing into a gun "ho"!

    The M&P40 is a good pistol. Mine shoots as good as my P2022 in 9mm. :D

    You know that SIGs are set up for a combat hold vice a six o'clock hold, right?

    However, MY 2022 does shoot a couple inches lower than my wife's at 15 yards. It has the proper front sight # but has a gap between the slide & the blade.

    My wife's 2022 is very accurate. Mine is "meh."

    Trading away makes perfect sense. The whole thing is not about which gun is more "accurate" by itself. It is which one YOU shoot better. As long as you aren't married to your pistol, or stuck with it as a service gun, if you not having fun with it let it go.

    That said, the 2022 is the sleeper SIG. It is the best selling SIG in Europe. French national police force is just one example. Why not so popular stateside is anyone's guess. It is highly regarded mong the instructors at the SIG Sauer Academy. The trigger is fantastic for the price. Double action pull seems longer than it really is because it is smooth and even, not CZ or M9 heavy. Great reset too. Try it, then keep it or move on. If you lose some money in the process, it is an education expense. No amount of (free) reading or watching YouTube will give you that.
