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.

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.

I hate to dredge up an old thread, but seriously, the only difference between the two are the grips and the capacity?
Looking at the specs on SS, they are practically the exact same pistol. It just seems strange that Sig would make two weapons that are essentially the same, but for a two-round capacity. Would it not be somewhat redundant having both weapons in your stable?
Due to the grip difference, is one better for smaller hands? I'm sorry, but just trying to figure out why they are both available.

The 220 has been around for a long time and has quite the following. It's grip has pretty much the same dimensions front-to-back as the 227, but is slimmer due to the fact it's made to house a single-stack magazine. It also has the option of coming in a single-action-only configuration, an option that I'm not sure is (or ever will be) available for the 227.
I've handled both several times because I'd like to have one or the other, but I keep going back and forth. Right this minute I'd like to have the 220 in either all stainless or Equinox, with the SAO fire control. But I don't see that configuration on their site, so I may have to get a regular 220 SAO and do my own slide work and buy nickel controls to get what I want.

Thanks Kenny for your input. I hope you get the weapon you're looking for, even if you need to do some mods on it yourself.
It just seems to me that the entire weapon has the same dimensions, save for the minor grip differences.
I wish I'd handled both prior to the used P220 purchase, but the deal and condition of the gun were too good to pass up, especially considering the 6 factory mags that are included (three still in original factory packaging). The guy hardly used it, as his duty weapon was provided for him, so I think this one sat in the safe for a number of years as well, unfired.
So, bottom-line, I guess getting the P227 will be much lower on my list of Sig priorities, until I fill-in some of my other holes in the lineup. That is, of course, unless I find one in a deal that's too good to pass up.
