Personal Opinion on SP2022

I am a Glock fan. I will never sell my G19. The simplicity, the ease of field stripping, the proven reliability... It is one great weapon.

Sure, the Sig SP2022 has more working parts - the decocker comes to mind. More things to possibly go wrong. But this hasn't been a problem in the metal framed Sigs so I don't expect it from the SP. And, it is a bit tougher to field strip than the Glock. But that is tolerable.

My personal opinion on my SP2022 is this. Since Glocks are such great guns, it is obvious that polymer framed guns CAN pass the muster. The rails that the Sig slide rides on are steel - the polymer doesn't take much damage aside from residual stress. Just like the big "G".

Now, nothing I am saying is very scientific; simply my untrained opinion. But this, and the proven track record from others gives me great confidence that I purchased a winner. The Youtube vid of the 5,000 round endurance test is what pushed me over the edge to finally purchase it. It fits great in my hand, is a reliable shooter, and is a good looking weapon.

I write this for anyone else on the fence trying to decide. While I score my Glock a 100, my Sig scores a solid 98. And that is not bad at all!

The SP is to European law enforcement what the Blocks are to American law enforcement. I've said a thousand times that the SP could put a major dent in Block's percentages here if SIG marketed them better. Blocks are only so plentiful in police departments because they are typically the lowest bidder, not necessarily the best pistol.

I am obviously a Sig fan as much as a Glock fan now. Next will be an M11-A1. I do love the standard P229, but those 3 mags are nice to get.

Have not tried a 2022 yet and have no interest in doing so. I buy a Sig for the full-metal frame, weight, quality, reliability, etc. For polymer framed guns, I like Glocks. I've shot other polymer framed guns, and so far, Glock and FNH are my favorite.

It's great that we have so many fine firearms to choose from. I am glad you found the ones that suit you. I look forward to discovering the next one on my list.

Glock makes a great gun, hard to best for the price and reliability. Plus all of the accessories available for it.

I wish I had not read this thread. I have been thinking of a 2022 but said why when I own two Glocks. Well just maybe I may have to pick one up. I really wish I was rich!

Re: Personal Opinion on SP2022

Have you shot your SIG yet? How do you adjust to the change? Most people seem to strongly prefer one to another with these brands. (100 to 98 is not a big difference).

I shoot my 2022 reasonably well but when I try glock it is all over the place.

I ask because I'm getting that itch and think it's time to add a striker to the collection. Its is between the glock and xdm.

To the op, my two 9mm handguns are also the Glock19 and Sig 2022. I do not feel you can go wrong with those 2 firearms (although my 2022 was defective out of the box, Sig fixed it and had it back to me in two weeks, so it is all good as it is working perfectly now)

To the poster above, I took both out with me along with my AR-15 last Friday and I shot the 2022 better than the G19. If it remains malfunction free to where I am confident enough to literally "bet my life on it" I will switch my concealed carry from my Glock19 to the 2022.

That should tell you how impressed I was with the 2022. I have only had a Glock 19 in semiauto going back almost 20 yrs owning both a gen2 and gen4 Glock19. I have no complaints on that gun and love it, but the 2022 really bowled me over I must say.

The Glock 19 is a great gun and I have owned a Gen2 brand new since around 1993 and it was my first autoloading center fire pistol.

In recent years I have found myself easily preferring shooting SIGs, including my SP2022, and my Walther PPQ to anything else as far as non 1911 pistols.

The SP2022 is a terrific pistol and mine has never given me a problem in just over 2000 rounds now.

I live in Illinois and don't have CCW yest. We are supposed to get it in the next couple months but who knows exactly what we will get and knowing Illinois if shall issue does pass they will probably budget for one part time person to do all the work.

If I finally do get the capability for CCW in Illinois I may go with my Glock 19 or Walther PPQ in that role. I shoot the PPQ better but the Glock 19 is perfect in size/shape for CCW out of my options. My SIGs, including the SP2022, are bigger and heavier. I have tried shooting smaller/thinner pistols like the m&P Shields and Walther PPS but I find I shoot my other pistols much better. I know that plenty CCW the Glock 19 without any problem with a good holster. I want to have high confidence in my CCW choice and worry less about ultimate comfort with a smaller/thin pistol.

The SP2022 is my favorite hammer fired under $700 new pistol bar none.

Target from shooting 15 rounds offhand at 7 yards.

I am no expert marksman with either of them. There is a slight difference, but after a few rounds you adjust. At "in the house" defensive distance, I can hit the silhouette in the vital areas no problem, even switching from one to the other with the first round.

It's like Mountain Bikes or even Motorcycles. When you go from one to the other, you notice the difference. But you adjust really quickly.

I would give the slight edge to my Glock, but probably because I have had it longer. Had I bought the Sig first and had more time with it, it could easily go the other way.

You adjust to what is in your hand. That has always been my experience. Even with DA Revolvers.

They are both excellent firearms and I've had a Glock 23 for many years and it has performed well. I just prefer the overall "Feel" and comfort from shooting my Sig 2022. I think it boils down to "Some say Tomatoe, and some don't".

I've never held or shot a Glock that felt good in my hand. Every one has been like holding a brick. Blech.
My Steyr's on the other hand, feel better than any other gun and I love to shoot them. IMO, the absolute best polymer pistol on the market.

That being said, my second favorite gun is my SP2022, but that may change since I just got a P226, but haven't shot it yet.

Re: Personal Opinion on SP2022

This is a very interesting topic. Being a Sig owne r for over 15 years. Were I still owe my first sig abd still shoot lije day one without chan changing any spring. I say am a big sig fan. Never been a fan of polimer. That why I have never try tge SP or the block. I agree with the coment about thr lower bider. However I still read somewhere tgat sig still have the 1/3 of law enforcement market. Additionally the army just renew wth bretta for sidearm for 5 more years (Btw I hate bereta) but still uses P228 for conceal carry. And Navy uses 226 for side arms not sure what's their cc weapon but also sig. I was an armorer in tge army and with tg e type of punishnent soldiers give the guns the 228 take way less maintenance than the beretta. Buy tge time a replaced one spring in tge 228 I had already change 10 on 1 beretta. Even gad to change cracked slides on berreta and non with sig. In my opinion that say a lot of a gun. No I can't imagine how would be with a polimer hun. No matter what they said plastic is plastic. Againg nothing sgsinst Block but when you depend on a weapon that take so much punishment I don't think polimer will take

I have a Sig Pro 2022 (with a 2009 frame, thanks Buds...). I have put over 1,000 rounds through it with zero issues. I've cleaned it twice, once with mere mortal oil and lube and the second time with Froglube.

I really wanted to like the Glocks, but after shooting a G3/G17 and a G4/G19 I didn't like them. Shame; they have a massive amount of inexpensive parts available.
