Sig P227 - It Is A Reality

Word leaking out of Sig is that the P227 is a go and will be built sometime in 2013. It's a double-stack .45 ACP, will come with 10-round flush-fit mags, and will also have 14-round extended mags available. The gun will accept P220 slides and is very close to the current dimensions of the P226. Sig is hoping to show this gun at SHOT but may not have it ready until the NRA Convention.

Honestly....the gun is probably of no use to me. Too big. The P224 DAK in 9mm, if it ever exists, may be something for me to consider.

Interesting.

I'd rather see a "rebuild" of a 2022 to .45 than the older technology aluminum frame version, but whatever, I think those who like the .45 will at least be somewhat intrigued.

Better yet, I really wish SIG would produce a 10mm.

You are right. A "227" as described will be a big gun.

Hmm. Interesting. From what I'm reading it's going to have roughly the same dimensions of the 226. If it were the size of a 229, I might be interested, but not if it's bigger than that.

For being double stacked I'd rather see something like 13 14 round capacity, something like the K2 45

nope, just something that came up about a possible double stack 220, so teh 227 will probably be pretty close i'd bet.

here's another early 229 with w german slide.

Just checking...I have always been interested in that one but I think the double stack might lose its charm for me if it is too much thicker than a P226...

Yeah, from what I've read, they are going to be put out with E2 grips, but because it's a .45 the E2 grips will be about the same thickness as the standard two-piece grips. Here's the link to what appears to be the most comprehensive information I could find on Osage County Gun's SIG Sauer site.

Yup! Agreed! Time to be a leader again and not a follower, Sig! The Colt Delta is OK, the S&W is OK, I just traded in my Glock 20C (10mm ported) in on my MK25. It was OK too.

GREAT cartridge, just needs a nice gun to make it fly. Sig would be a great platform for it!

Multiple sources are saying that the gun will come with E2 grips. For most, that's yet another reason why this gun is DOA. I've not yet found a single shooter (male) who has shot a gun with E2 grips and actually liked them. They were invented to satisfy the government's demand that women be able to shoot the guns effectively and that is the only market who has shown a liking for them.

That may or may not be so. I know a lot of folks both male and female that like the E2 grips better. It is all a matter of perspective. Having seen propopsed guns stories before, until somebody outside of SS actually handles the hardware I would consider it a vapor gun. Rumours are a dime a dozen.

DOA: Dead On Arrival in the market because lots of guys won't like it.

Yes, oh yes....then I can finally get rid of my last Glock. I detest how the Glock points. I was one of the first IPSC shooter to shoot the 10mm years ago. I have 10k of 10mm brass and a note book of every possible 10mm load. I dont want to carry a 10mm limited gun and I begrudgingly use a Glock 20.
Give me a 10mm Sig and I would be first in line to buy one at MSRP.
