New P220 Compact

Impulse buy, I like my 1992 P220, it was my duty weapon for 17 years. This gives me a carry size slide but much easier for me to conceal.



Slide is tight, imperceptible wiggle, came with (2) 6 round mags but I have plenty of 8 rd. SS and they work. I'll get to the range next week and give a update on performance.

Don't see that one in the catalogue. Looks like a Scorpion treatment. What's the model number?

Congrats
I have thought about a SAS
I've wondered with the same grip and shorter slide, do you find a real difference on carry?
With other guns I looked at grip and thickness as big factors on carry. Less so the barrel. That's just me. Sounds like you carried a lot. I never carried my 220 or my old 229.

I really like my P245 (now the 220 compact, from what I can tell) and it's slender build. It comes close to 1911 slim (by about a 1/4" in width) and the weight carries nicely. I find it a very shootable gun too. It's not a punisher.

dwg, his compact has a smaller frame than the carry 220's. This is more compact by a good deal. The grips are at least a half inch shorter. The slides for the two are the same length though.

The 220 carry on the left is not a SAS carry, it's railed. The 245 is right both shots.

Yea I blanked on the Compact version. I was thinking carry. The Compact I like much.
I have not looked at 220s seriously long. I have looked over SAS with SAO on gun broker with lust. A couple or years ago a 245 was on local armslist and I thought hard about it. I didn't know enough about them at the time.
I don't think about carrying a 220 much because of my 239.
I am not real interested in a carry 220 because the difference is not enough. For a carry 1911 I don't like the 4" models with Government grips. Mine and my preference is a 4" with Officer grips. I have owned before, but not anymore, any 1911 shorter than 4". I did get an EMP but it is not a true 1911 and was built to be smaller.

Yes to pretty much all of this! I love my C3. Best of both worlds size in a 1911.
You mentioned your 239, I would compare the overall size of the 220 CO/245 to that of the 239 (the round counts are only off by one, 6+1 for the CO, 7+1 for your 239), not a bad trade off if you're as much of a fan of the .45 round as I am. .. Of course, now there's the .357 sig to contend with

I shot my 357 enough to trust it. I just haven't found any 357 HPs yet. Don't want a lot so I need local. For now I carry the 239 in 40.
I like 45 and like the idea of a SAS in SAO. Someday. I found and got my full size 220 sooner than I planned to. Oppourtunity

Last I looked, Underwood had a few different loads in 357. His variety is down a bit, but chances are something suitable for you here.

Yea next time I need 400 I will try them again. I just don't want shipping on one box. They were out when I got some 400.
I plan to take my 400 to the Dallas shoot so I may need more 400 sooner than I want.
