P220 Legion Carry SAO
Seems this little rascal is back limited 500 run.
Does anyone have any experience with this pistol?
I own a 229 Legion SAO and love it!
Been wanting to add a .45 Legion to the safe.
Maybe this is the one? ...unsure of the price.
Then there is the matter of actually finding one.
Maybe easier than ammo right now? lol
Please don't reply with the usual "legions are overrated junk" etc etc
This is not a thread to debate the merits of legion vs non-legion
I like them and that is that.

I don't experience with a 220 Carry Legion SAO, but I have a ton of experience with a 220 Carry SAO. Not a huge difference between the two.
I like it a lot because there's no grip safety, something that gives me problems in the 1911 platform because of the size and geometry of my hands and this eliminates that problem.

The safety paddles look nicer on this gun compared to my 229.
Mine are huge!
I'd rather huge than the piddly little things on the 365xl
The paddles on this 220 SAO look just right.
My right paddle has a ton of "play" in it.
I asked Sig about this and the said "that's part of the design" mmmk
I'm no gunsmith so maybe this is true.

I've got a P220 Carry Equinox DA/SA that's been my daily carry and it's been superb, as has the SAO setup on my P220 Super Match.
Unlike as with a 1911 or P226 SAO, you can clear a chambered round from a P220 SAO with the safety engaged which is a great feature IMO.
I'd love to own one of the P220 Carry SAO Legions; if you have the opportunity to buy one, grab it.

Ah, so this is the first time they have offered this platform is SAO?
I really want one! Hoping my LGS can get one pinned down. Then I can stare longingly at it and dry fire until ammo prices come down. (kidding) Grateful I have a good amount of ammo on hand. The current prices are ridiculous! QC seems lacking too, at least the last case from Federal was. Separate topic that has been beaten to death, I digress.
The dimensions seem similar to the 229. Can anyone confirm?

You must be thinking about the X5 series that lock the slide with the safety on (afaik, that feature exists on the P226 and P220 X5s
