Did a trade with my P220 Combat but we kept our own slides and barrels. Traded for a German beavertail P220 out of jail today, greased the rails with Slide Glide lite and put on the Hogue g-10 od green checkered grips to tie into the od green slide. Usually G10 is a matte finish but I put a coat of tung oil which dries in this Summer weather in about 1-2 days. It really brings out the color and gives a satin sheen giving it the snake skin like texture.

Sig Sauer P232: Because I can no longer buy one of the many Bersa Thunder 380s collecting inside the display glass of all the local gun stores.

I do like it a little more than the Bersa 380 I used to own before I regrettably sold in a couple years ago.

The glow in the dark sights are great. The contoured grip from the factory is very comfortable. The finish on this CA legal model is quite beautiful. Having no real safety lever streamlines it in the situation that I would need to start getting rounds downrange asap. I've just barely gotten started with this new pistol at about only 50 rounds or so through it. No malfunctions at all with PMC, Remington or Winchester.

As I'm sure everybody but me knows, stay the heck away from the "Sig Sauer" brand replacement magazines with the dimples towards the top. They suck BAD! Does not let you load them. Very obvious design flaw in a magazine that cannot even load a round. Some types of .380 bullets would load while others wouldnt. (this is not an issue with the 2 magazines that come with the actual pistol because they do not have the dimples in them.) I still need to call Sig and get them exchanged for a no crap one. I considered shaving down the dimples on the inside and then thought "why am i modifying a magazine to enable it to load ammunition, which I overpaid so much for."

My first Sig is now home.

I'm told the sticker adds 30% more velocity to all bullets shot through this gun.


Ooo... it glows.

Here's my Sig Family Portrait...








Excuse the 1st pic... I didn't realize what it looked like until I posted the pic on SigTalk...

P220 Sport Stock
P220 Carry Equinox
P229 .40 s&w, triple serial
SP2022 9mm

The 3 P-series guns are all german-framed, with SRT kits installed
Also have a .357 Sig barrel for the p229, what a fun round
I really wish I had the SRT in the Sig Pro.

All in all the P220 Stainless might be my most favorite to shoot, it's super accurate.

P220 shot for the first time just a couple hours ago.




Robert De Niro sure made it look easy in Heat but it actually kicks quite hard. Any tips how to improve aim?

Check your grip. Make sure youve got both hands up high on the gun.

Are you shooting hot loads? My 220 makes .45 feel like butter.

make sure you have the fundamentals down in terms of accuracy. pull the trigger slow. Dry fire the gun to get used to the trigger.
enjoy your 220. I love mine

Thanks for the reply. The ammo was Remington UMC lead free.

I've just started dry fire practicing. Also, is this a good video on how to clean it?

Hey clunk,

The dry firing should help you. The goal is to let the recoil almost surprise you. That way, you wont be letting your wrists and arms anticipate it, making you inaccurate.

Also dont forget to practice the double action. When I shoot my 220 at the range i also decock the first shot, just like I would if I was carrying it or if it was a HD weapon. I love the Sig double action trigger.

In terms of cleaning, any video about "how to clean a semi auto pistol" will work. Everyone will tell you different methods and different cleaners to use.

One thing I saw in the video that I WOULD NOT do is dip the toothbrush into the bottle of solvent. im sure he used that brush for other cleanings, and it could contaminate the solvent. Sure he couldve cleaned the brush, but i just wouldnt do it. Lightly pour the solvent onto the brush.

In terms of the grip, make sure your grip is nice and high. As high as possible without getting in the way of the slide.

Thanks for the great tips. The part about letting the recoil surprise you makes sense.

Another silly question: how often should I clean it? How often do you clean it?

Yep clunk, you can beat it with practice... I had anticipation issues as a novice shooter, for quite a while actually -- because I never faced it head on for the longest time, and let it become a habit. Eventually I worked on it and beat it. Comes with a lot of practice, to the point that the round going off is something very comfortable to you and your brain can decide its not going to hurt you. The more practice the sooner you'll acclimate to it.

No prob man! Feel free to send me a pm if you have other questions.

Heres my thoughts on cleaning: People overclean their guns. I think I had put about 300-500 rounds through my Glock 19 before I cleaned it for the first time. I clean my guns maybe once every other range trip. and it depends how much I shoot it.

Another thing you could do if you dont want your barrel to stay dirty for however long until you shoot it again, you can just run a wet patch through your barrel, and then run a few dry ones to get the big chunks out.

but really, you will be fine if you clean it every other range trip... or even every range trip if you want.. I just think its a bit unneccesary.

It's true that you can probably get away with not cleaning every time you shoot it, but in my case for example... It might be 10 months before I shoot it again. I wouldn't leave it dirty for that long.

I downloaded a pistol correction chart target, print out a few, and take with me to the range. You're all over the place, so you just need to work on making the same mistake and correcting that. I'm still not a great shot, but my shots are always grouped down and to the left instead of straying all over the paper.

Thanks for the advice! I plan to put 100 rounds downrange on Saturday so hopefully I'll become more comfortable.

Where can I download this pistol correction chart?
