The thickness of the grip and the capacity are the two biggest differences. Because of the double-stacked magazine in the P227 it has a slightly fatter grip. The grip is nearly identical to that of a P226.

220/8 rounds, 227/10 rds....so you really don't get a lot more with the 227.

227 will have 14rd high cap mags. That's really the selling point.

but you have to buy them, i'll stick with my g3 g30 & 10+1.

now i could use the 21 mags, which are 13's but that sorta negates carrying a compact with a full size mag.

I have both and they are identical from muzzle to the point where the trigger guard starts to flare out to meet the wider grip. I think the P227 has a comfortable grip for a double stack 45, but the P220 has a better grip. I can "point" the P220 more naturally because I can index the position of the muzzle by feeling the flat sides of the grip. The P227 is has a more "round" profile if you were to look at a cross section of the grip. This causes some left to right shift when I "point" the gun without aiming... at least for me.

With my P220, I can hit stuff pretty accurately without even aiming.

Mike
