It is Cheap and it works!!!

Ok been in a dilemma finding a grip for my CCW, a P220.
Bought a walnut last week from Grips4U and it didn't fit because of the mainspring housing. Nills grip is out of Stock
I find the regular grip of the P220 kinda small for my hands and very slippery. I'm used to double stack P series Sigs. I wanted the Aluminum but I thought it's still gonna be small or practically of the same thickness compared to the plastic grips my 220 came with.
Ordered some Hogue rubber grips. Paid $18 shipped to me (cheap) and set of Hogue grip screws. Its perfect!!!! I will go to the range to shoot it tomorrow. It's not as pretty as my other grips but it feels great on my hands. Besides, this is a CCW so function is very important to me.


Stainless Guide rod(replaced the Plastic)

Glad you found some that worked. I think the ones on the 220 Equinox would also work for you if you still want wood ones.

I will check that out. I just noticed also that my 220 doesn't have any checkering on the front strap. That's why it gets slippery.

I hope you do a lot of practice drawing from the holster you use for carry with the rubber grips. I find they bind on the draw too much for my taste. YMMV.

Yup, they are nice, however, for plinking.

True. We'll see. If it won't work. I need to look for another grip while waiting for the Nills to become available in Mactecsales.

Have you considered having someone do the easy mod to the Grips4U so they will fit?

Nope. I don't know anybody here who can do it. They might just mess it up. I can't do it either. I don't have tools

I love the way Hogue rubber grips feel, but for concealed carry the covering garment would always hang up on me. I had to take them off of my last P225 and my Walther P5.

They just don't work for me for concealed carry. They sure do feel good though.

Mickey, if you are around Dallas, I would think Robert Burke (The Sig Armorer) could get the grips to fit.

220

stainless guide rod looks nice too. another cheap fix is pachmayer slip on grips? with or without finger grooves. i had them on my duty pistol(m+p) until firearms instructor said "take them off"- not issued by the company. felt nice to grab on to if i had to draw in a hurry.

After years of trying "pretty" grips, I now have Hogues on most of my guns. My P239 is my EDC and has been for 4 years, no problem with shirts hanging on it. The Finger groove grips on my primary HD P229 and my P226 TacOps I use 2 weekends p/mo for IDPA.

I like the basic Hogue rubber panel grips like you got.
I replaced the Rosewood grips with those on my SSEs.
Compact/slim and comfortable with any loads.
I've had the finger-groove models and I prefer the basic ones like yours over the finger-groove myself.

I wrapped up and safely stored the Rosewood in case I ever want to put them back to original.

You need some nickel grip screws to go with that nickel slide.
