Default Sig Sauer SP2022 9mm – Need Feed Back

Hi all Calgunners. I’m in the market for my first polymer pistols and believe me; I did some serious soul searching. Long story short, I finally decided on the Sig SP2022 that is available at the local gun store for $529.00 (with standard sights). It has the look and the features that I want and it is within my price range.

I want to hear from owners on what they think. Better yet, if you have the SP2022 and another polymer pistol, how would you compare the two, or three, or four; however ever many polymers you can compare it to. I don’t hear much about the SP2022 or maybe the other polymers are that much more popular. About a year ago, I remember reading on here about some complaints on this piece. Anyway, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Gunho

Do it! You don't need to do anything to it, though you can change out the polymer guide rod to a stainless steel. It's true what they say, it's one of the most underrated pistols, or Sig's best kept secret. It is definitely up there in the top 5 of polymer pistols. I've shot over 2000+ rounds through mine, and have yet to have any problems. Maybe a few FTE here and there, but that's just my ammo. I'm not sure if you shot a Sig before, but like my friend who is a Glock shooter, it took some time for him getting used to. After practicing and putting a few hundred rounds through mine, I've become very accurate with it and especially acquiring multiple targets. I love mine... no regrets. I use mine for HD though and at the range. It's fun. For your first polymer handgun, I would recommend it over its competitors, but it depends what you'll use it for.

Bead blasted slide, SS guide rod w/ new Sig blue recoil spring, polished barrel, Meprolight night sights, Hogue HandAll grip, Streamlight TLR-4, etc.

Very nice. I like what you did with everything; it has that mean tactical look. I have the Sig P226 40 in full stainless steel and I did change the guide rod to SS, so I may do the same with the SP2022. Yes, i'm familiar with the Sig feel and have become used to the snappy recoil, but then again, this is on my sig 40, which I don't anticipate will have the snappy feel. Thanks for the extra encouragement. The look, price, and ergonomics is a win for me.

If it's a SIG, it must be good. I mean really good!
It is the best selling SIG ever.
I say go for it.

Thanks! You should be fine then. Yep, I got mine for a steal at $479+tax/dros on sale at Turner's with the free Sig Sauer CPL (laser) before this madness. Such an awesome gun for the price.

Great pistol. Mine had light scratches on the slide stop lever when I got it brand new. Not sure if its common or just mine.

$499 is a great deal, especially with night sights. I guess $529 at Reeds is the best i found. Most gun shop in nor cali is cleaned out.

I noticed the prices in NorCAL gunstores are higher than those in SoCAL. Guns also seem harder to come by up here compared to down there. Just looking at the sales section on this site, all the nice guns are down south.

Thanks. All my other guns are similar; stainless steel color, all metal, heavy, and full length barrels. That's why i'm looking for my 1st, light weight, short barrel, polymer pistol.

I notice that too. Maybe it's easier to get guns in south cali.

One complaint I've heard is that field stripping it is a lot harder compared to a Glock. Personally, I don't find it hard at all.

Another is that magazines are expensive and hard to find. I have to agree here especially for 9mm.

Great gun! i have it and its fun to shoot. Mags are the problems though, impossible to find. Ebay has them but they are selling them for almost a hundred. I bought a spare one for 60 and I thought that was expensive.

I'm glad I jumped on those 9mm (formerly .40/357) Sig mags for about $15 each on here a while ago. Yes, they seem to be hard to find these days. As for field stripping, it's seemless after 2-3 times. Very easy.

Yes, the only problem with the sp2022 are the mags. I had to buy all my mags for ~$65 each.

I guess it isn't much of a problem if you only carry 2 mags. But I personally like to have 6 for each gun.

I have a 9mm variant. Great gun. Picked it up right after Christmas. Just over 300 flawless rounds through it.

As mentioned in other posts, only comes with one mag. Mags are like gold these days. 9mm ammo can be tough too.

I have one and absolutely love it stripping it takes some time to get used to. Mags a pricy I found them for 42 each about a month ago so I have three now, I also found mine for 399 in November with standard sights.

Only draw backs are only comes with one mag, comes in a box instead of a case.

But is a great shooter out of the box no need to break in like he trigger on my m&p

Ah, just beware. Some advertise a Swiss made frame. They do *not* have the Picatinny rail. They have the older SIG proprietary rail. Not a real problem unless you want to add accessories.

I'd say about 95% of 9mm Sig 2022's I've seen for sale in the marketplace are in SoCal. There seems to be a dearth of these up here... I blame the lack of a Turners for that.

That's a good gun, and $549 is not too crazy a price considering the madness in the marketplace right now.

Be sure to source some magazines for it also, they are hard to find right now.

just picked up 2 from exile machine...

as for ammo, I only have about 100 rounds of JHP...
I usually just pick up reload at the range for target, but would like to have a bulk stash as well..

I sold mine simply because the height of the grip felt off. I would recommend holding it yourself before buying.

Thanks all. I'll check to see if mags are available at Reeds. Can't wait to get off work. I'm SF and Reeds in SJ; nice commute for me. They have a lot in stock too so if i see a scratch, i'll ask to get another one.

I have the 9mm version picked it up new with night sights for $410 last year, from someone in the Commercial sales forum.

Came in a sweet case too.

Only issue I have are the night sights, its like lining up three paper plates.

Not a problem for hitting targets but makes it difficult for being precise IMHO.

Other than the sights I have had only 2 Failures to feed and that was from using crappy reloads.

Go for it! I have my older Sig 2340. Thousands of rounds no problems. Super accurate, I can ping plates at 100 yards with it. Don't change the polymer rod though, it changes your point of impact.

I have the 9mm version also and love it. It eats everything i've put in it so far. Definately made me want nothing but Sigs from now on. Go for it you won't regret it and if you do it will sell.

Probably only for 40/357. I used to check Reeds every few days but I've given up. Hopefully you have better luck.

Im planning to polish the barrel so a matching ss guide is a must. Just like what i did with my 226. Just called Reeds to make sure they still have it. Headed there now.

9mm or .40? Did you change out your guide rod right away or did you shoot the polymer one for a while before making the switch? I was surprised at that as well. Also I saw some scrapes and groove marks on my ss guide rod after 50 rounds. Did you see anything like that on yours? Maybe it's just me

Are you putting a fair amount of grease on the guide rod before shooting? I do and my polymer rod is almost nick free.
