My new Sig SP2022

I never thought I'd go back to polymer framed guns. I had a love/hate relationship with Glocks for year (owned 5, 2 I loved, 3 I hated). I've resisted buy another polymer framed gin since i got rid of my last problem Glock. But the SP2022 has always appealed to me. I like the way it feels. So, at $400 I couldn't say no any longer. I bought one. Born day March 2012. External extractor and LCI. Contrast sights. 9mm.

I'm amazed at how well machined the slide it. There's not a tool mark on it, inside or out. The finish is even all over. The barrel seems very havy compared to my P229 9mm barrel, and there appear to be more steel around the chamber. The frame rails are beefier than the rails that were in my Glocks.

Overall, I'm very impressed so far. Can't wait to get it to the range.

That is how they keep the price point to $400 or less - astoundingly low for a quality SIG hammer fired pistol. It is easy to pick up more magazines if one wants to.

Congrats on your new SP2022. I love mine and it has been flawless through over 2000 rounds now.

Really super pix, too!

These are really excellent pistols.

Hey Mic, good to see you over here, too! { }

IMO these guns have gotten the shaft. When you examine all the new engineering that went into them they are not just a "plastic-framed SIG". Really, it would seem the ergos and trigger reach issues common to the 200-series guns have pretty much been addressed while keeping the DA/SA many of us prefer.

I'm enjoying mine more than I ever thought I would and glad I got rid of the other plastic-framed pistols in favor of these.

Thanks for posting. SIG should buy those pix from you!

I love the SP2022.
I kinda wish mine came with the LCI.. then again, I hear the conversion barrels wont work with them? So maybe it's a good thing cause I wouldn't mind turning my .40 into a 357, too bad the ammo costs a ton.
Hope your 2022 brings you peace and prosperity

Yes, they do.

When I left 226's for a time I found trouble shooting small varmints with Glocks. They demand the utmost in forst shot accuracy and being just a little "off" makes a big difference between a rat for the coyote bait bucket or a wounded critter sliding down his hole.

With the 2022 I am back to the same performance as the 226's and 1911. Dead rats.

My son still has my old 9mm 226 and now also has a 2022. He likes the 2022 as much as the 226.

One thing we have found with the 2022's has been noted byothers; for some hundreds of rounds the SA trigger pull just gets better and better. Great pistols.

A while back I priced out mags and found, of all places, Miday had them just about the cheapest. Not sure now, but they all seem to go around the $33-$35 range. Top Gun? Not sure.

I wish SIG would being out a 20 or 30 rounder...

Enjoy!!!

Enjoy! They (sp 2022's) are adictive, have 9's and a .40, external and internal extractors, Exeters and German frames and slides. Can't get enough of them.

I like mine also. I'm not so sure that I like the double action pull though. Sometimes at the range I'm pulling on the trigger, and pulling and pulling to the point that I can't pull back any further and start over. Does anyone else ever have this happen?

Me! My 9mm P2022 is my first Sig and the gun is great except for the trigger. It's currently sitting in the safe as I'm much more comfortable with my M&P 9c as my home defense side arm. My dad said the same thing at the range. Hopefully it drastically improves with break-in (or I get used to it). A Sig has always been my grail gun but the loooong trigger pull on this thing has soured me on the P2022. Sorry to thread jack.

Sounds like you guys don't like the DA half of DA/SA.

Practicing helps, but one other thing might help, too. I have one 2022 w/ the short trigger and one with the long trigger. The short trigger releases very close to the frame, allllll the way back, requiring the trigger finger to be very close to the frame. I spend much time in back country with my pistols in winter and will test this trigger to see if a loose glove can bind behind it. Haven't checked yet, but...

The long trigger breaks with the trigger finger farther forward. This may give you a sensation of more control.

If you have the short trigger on your pistols you might try the long.

I like both. If I get any binding or glove fouling of the space between the frame and rear of trigger, I'll use the long trigger.

I have shot a lot of auto pistols and the 2022's are, along with the Browning High Power, my favorites of all of them.

Also remember, there is no safety on SP2022, making the DA pull the closest thing we've got.
