The only problem I ever had was with the SP2340. I bought it used and the 40 caliber barrel was shot out. I was lucky and grabbed a 357 SIG barrel to replace it and it is now one of my favorites.

The Pros I own have been fantastic. I have one Swiss (SP2340), one German (SP2022 9mm) and two Exeters (SP2022 40SW). Those dealers just want you to drop more cash on a more expensive pistol. Pros are good to go.
serious? a Sig Peg board??

It's actually a picture I just made looking down on my kitchen table. I was missing one pistol. My wife had my other P6.

The four Pros are included in the picture with the other SIGs.

My very first SIG is the nickel plated P226 and I got it around fifteen years ago. My latest was bought this past weekend and is the P226 above the nickel. Both are dated 1991. Then I looked at the rest and found the the P228 that I bought two years ago is also a 1991. Kinda weird.

It has been fun collecting them (shooting them too).

My 2022 in .40 cal is a dream to shoot. Felt just as good as the 229 and HK USP and is $500 less. That extra $500 will buy you lots of extra magazines, an under-rail light and lots of practice ammo.

Nope....... you're missing 2. Where's the 1911? What? You don't own a Sig 1911?

I doubt that will be happening. I am one of those that don't like the 1911 platform. If I got another .45 it would be a P220. The P220 is a much better pistol in my opinion. I don't think I would get a 238 either. If they had copied the Government 380 instead of the Mustang I would get one but the 238/Mustang is too small for me.

Love my SP2022. It shoots as well as my P22x'es. The lighter polymer frame requires a little more technique to manage recoil for rapid fire, but that's the only significant difference I can come up with.

Had an SP2340 too some years back and sold it to my brother when he was looking for a modern, high quality, reliable semi-auto that wouldn't break the bank. I wouldn't have sold it to him if I had any reservations about function or reliability.

Well, I like the gun in the 40 cal. It is very easy to strip and clean for starters. The recoil is not that bad for me.

I will say this and it is the truth. Roughly 700-750 rounds have been fired and it is jammed about 15-18 times when I have used it. Now, I use good ammo, keep it clean and do not limp wrist. My bro and GF shot it and it jammed on them too often also.

The last time I shot it alone, only one jam after 200 rounds. I'm not totally convinced it will not jam again. After my next range trip, if it jams I will contact SIG.

Perhaps something is faulty or I did something or I'm not doing something. I don't know.

I love it when it works and will not sell it short. I will keep it even if I have to send it off. Who knows? maybe they will give me a new one.

I have one in .40, for the money its an outstanding handgun...very happy with mine, for a mid-size combat style pistol its ultra accurate in my experience, even at 25+yards i can still make head shots on shiloutte targets without much problem and has feed every ammo I have put through it

Only downside to me is the grip sizes, i would like a little longer grip for my pinky finger....similar to the XDM size

But all in all you cant go wrong with the SP2022, and if you dont like it there is a good market for it used

mine has been also been reliable for 1000+ rounds

I've put over 2K rounds on my sp2022 9mm and I am deadly accurate with it up to 20y even in DA mode. I've never had a single malfunction and the only issue I have with it is after I shoot other pistols my right thumb rests on the slide lock so it doesn't lock after the last round but that is user error! After the first or 2nd time it happens its easily corrected. I don't know exactly what it is about the 2022 whether it's the super smooth trigger or grip angle but it is always a pleasure to shoot.

I have roughly 1500 rounds through my2022 9m and I love this pistol.I have had a major malfunction with it and had to return it to Sig, no reason for the failure given. Im beginning to belive it was failure on my part (being a noob!)maybe not lubing it properly? Sig repaired it and shipped it back (5 day turn around) NO charge. I would Recommend the firearm to anyone as I use it for my ccw

My SigPro 2009 is older than the 2022, and it still kicks ass. It may not be everybody's cup 'o tea, but I like it. No problems in thousands of rounds over the past 10 years or so.
My wife shoots it better than I do though:-)

Same here..... my 9mm 2022 had a defective slide lock retaining spring so the slide wouldn't lock back after the last shot. I sent it in to SIG and they fixed it all up (including "adjusting the barrel"). Since then, I've poured at least 2,000 rounds of every cheap crummy crap junk ammo I can find through it, and it just eats it up. There are cases of this gun going 450,000 rounds without a failure, and I believe it.

It's very comfortable to shoot, and I've shot up to 300 rounds in a single session without any fatigue whatsoever.

Note: when you buy one, check the magazine size. Some come with 10 rd. mags, others with 15 rd. mags. The 15 gives you 15+1 rounds total, which should get you through just about any self defense situation.

99% of the time, I just click the hammer back and fire it single action. The SA trigger pull is almost as clean as my old high-end IPSC pistol. It feels good in the hand (I switched to the smaller grip that came with it) and is absolutely accurate. I wish I had ten of these puppies.

The only negative is me not being rich enough to buy all the ammo I want to shoot through it. (-;

I've had nothing but good experiences from my 2022 as well. But I will say that the first time I took it apart and put it back together i was having problems. I didn't realize that my slide lock was not pushed in all the way when I re-assembled the gun. This resulted in having magazine ejection issues as the button was "mushy". After resolving this issue, I've had no problems

I had one problem out of the box. The hammer didn't come back enough to reset trigger after a shot or racking the slide. Have to use your thumb on the hammer to reset the trigger. But Sig replaced the hammer/trigger box and was quick about it. I loving this gun now and when I not shooting it, I'm waiting on more ammo.
