I have a SP2022 in 40... I cannot say anything bad about it. It's a great shooting pistol at even greater price!!!

Well, considering that you're asking a Sig enthusiast board, you're probably going to get mostly favorable reviews here. But there's no right opinion - you just have to decide what you like or don't like about it.
Do you have any questions about how they operate, reliability, ammo preferences, accessories, etc?

I heard a guy that worked at the gun store say i should stay away from them because they are nothing but trouble and people bring them back because they have problems. what are these problems?

wolverine, I think if people take them back, it is the people who have problems,
not the pistols. People can find things to complain about no matter what. Most
people are sheep, if their friend has a Glock, they feel they should have a Glock as
well. Learn to use your tool. Don't try to find a different tool just to be like the
other kids you play with. I've lost count on the number of rounds through my 2022
without a failure of any kind. I shoot IDPA with it and use it as my bed side gun. Other
people may experience difficulties, but I can't say enough good things about mine.

If there were a lot of problems with the SP2022 I am sure that would show up on the SIGforum. Over there the SP2022 is HUGELY popular and rarely do I ever read about a problem with a SP2022. I have a German one that I bought in 2009 and it has been flawless through over 2000 rounds now and a pleasure to shoot.
I am just wondering if that store is trying to steer you towards a more expensive/profitable pistol. Just a guess.

Got a Sept. 2011 made in Exeter SP 2022 in 9mm. Hums in there w/o fail. Eats up everything I feed it. Some of the best gun money I've ever spent. Hell of a buy, IMO.

Only problems I have with mine are:
- Not enough rounds to fire through it
- Can't get enough range time with it
To be really nit-picky, the only real issue I've had is finding a decent holster for it. Other than that, I love it. I still love my M&P9 more though, but this 2022 is growing on me Really fast.

100% perfection. My EDC and I trust it will stay reliable, as long as I take care of it, it will do the same for me.

I had a guy at a LGS say the same thing to me, that the 2022s were just terrible and he didn't sell one that didn't get returned or sent back to Sig. This shocked me, because I had been reading positive reviews. So I went back online and actually tried to find bad reviews, and I couldn't find one that I could determine wasn't a personal preference thing. The worst someone said was that they didn't like the feel of polymer guns.
I bought an SP2022 and it has been incredible. I have compared it with my friends 229, and they are exactly the same except his metal framed 229 recoils slightly less, and I mean very slightly.
I determined that one of two things probably happened, either the guy at the LGS was thinking of the 250 which is their other polymer gun and has had some terrible reviews, or he was thinking that because 2022 has 22 in the name it was a 22LR gun (wouldn't be the first time I have to explain that my 2022 is 9mm and not 22LR) and was thinking of the Mosquito which also has a polymer frame and has some terrible reviews.

It seems weird that we have two instances of dealer feedback being so at odds with owner reports. If anything, dissastisfied owners tend to be more vocal about their opinions, so it's particularly noteworthy that the user reviews on the internet are so overwhelmingly positive.
I researched the heck out of affordable pistols before settling on the 2022. Believe it or not, the fact that it's a Sig had no bearing on my decision. The three big takeaways I got from that research were:
1) It's quite accurate for a low cost gun
2) It has a great single action trigger
3) It's dead reliable
Almost makes you wonder if dealers are badmouthing this gun for some other reason. Like maybe they make very little profit selling a 2022 versus a metal frame Sig?

I was able to purchase my new (5 June 2012, nearly a D-Day gun!), SP2022/40 for $341 plus ship & FFL transfer on GunBroker.com. What a deal! Cheers.
