Which SIG is best?

Without talking caliber choice. Within the opinion here at this forum; What is considered top choice SIG pistol for ultimate reliability? Past, or present models.

Not talking about CC choices, or price, but down and dirty will not fail as far as a mechanical device can go.

Hmmmm?

Any of you have a reason why you chose the way you did?

Or am I to assume that every model is equal in reliability?

Sig P226- up it one. P226x5L1 -up it to the top - P226x6L1 and its cheaper then P226x5L1 because that one is made in there master shop in Europe.
They are all great P220-P229. The P226x6L1 is a master work of art. When my son shot my X6- We though he miss the tarage on the 3rd shot. BUT when we looked at the tarage -he got 2 bulls eye -in the same hole now waitting for my Sig 357 nightmare.

Id say... wow hard choice. P226 with a very very close second and third of P229 and P220.

Sig P220 gets my vote! Why? you say? well because the Sig P220 was the first semi auto hand gun made by them after joining Sauer & Son. They used that model for their premier offering and continued making improvements from that point forward.

I had a 250 in 45/40 Nice gun hard to take down, long dao and bit ruff on finish.
Traded both in on a 226tacops in 40/357 . Worth the trade.

I've had my P226 since 1989, it was my second big bore pistol (I was 11), never have had an issue with it and I'll never sell it. I can't tell you exactly how many rounds its fired but it's definitely in 5 if not 6 digits.

So, was just wondering how many recoil springs you have gone through? an if you ever had it looked over by Sig for a tune up?

Quite a few springs! The most impressive thing about this gun to me is the lack of maintenance necessary and it just keeps going with very little evidence of wear. I do clean it religiously and keep it lubed but really it hasn't been much. I should probably change springs and parts more often but it just works so I don't bother. It is due to go to sig or Gray for an overhaul. Maybe I'll treat it this year but haven't yet.

A hot topic with sensible answers.

I have no idea which is the best SIG. My first SIG was 1911 TTT.
When bying it I had about 7 1911's in front of me.

The SIG felt the best in my hand, Balance, Weight, Feel of Grip.
