One day we will all wake up to find the entire Classic P series has been dropped. Then there will be no distinguishing between gluuck and Sig. Trimming the assembly line to pay for Cohen's bail money!

That's a bummer. I don't think the P227 ever recovered from the 14-round magazine fiasco. I sold mine because, like many people, I was excited at the idea of 14-round mags, and had a bitter taste in my mouth when they didn't work. But truth be told, as a 10-round pistol, I'd take it any day of the week over a P220. I have never owned a P220 and never will. Single stack guns are more difficult for me to load under stress. The extra 2 rounds of the P227 is just icing on the cake...the tapered mag going into a larger magwell was reason enough alone for me to like it way better than the P220.

I've got a 227SAS and it's one of my favorites. Feels much better in my hand than the 220 I traded for it. Easy to carry too!

The p227 carry I have is one of the last I’d ever let go.

I hope you are wrong but all indications do point to that conclusion.

First and FORMOST, Sig is a business, they have to make money to stay in business. P227s sold like doo doo. I never owned one nor did I want one. Two Sig classics I never planned to buy were the 227 and the 224. They just seemed to not fit the line.

Plastic guns are 60-80% cheaper to manufacture and have a better margin for sales. All metal guns are heavy and expensive. Expensive to manufacture and to purchase. Just the facts from an economic view.

The 226 and 229 will never go away unless Sig folds. I see more special edition versions in the future, just because they will be going the way of collector pieces.

The 220, 225, well the 225 for a second time are on thin ice. The sales of those two models are low. 45 ACP guns that arn't 1911 are selling poorly. Admit-ably I prefer the 220 over the 1911. But lets be honest, who carries a 45 over a 9 anymore? 9 is the glory gun of the moment and has really taken off more and more since the FBI jumped on it.

The biggest thing is that Sig has diversified and thinned so much that they have to sacrifice certain things just to keep manufacturing up. Between optics, ammo, pellet guns and other stupid endeavors they are just trying to keep up with contractual demands. Look at their careers listing.. They need people.. When a company needs employees other things fall through the cracks... It's evident we have seen many QC and parts shortages.

But you gotta give them credit, in a time where gun demand is so low they are doing really well.

I carry my 227 SAS so I'm keeping her. And yes, my Mitch Rossen for my 227 fits my 229 SAS in .40. That's a win - win for me.

I bought a P227 SAS Carry a couple years ago. IMHO its a great .45
I like it better than my Colt 1911 Govt. Model.
Liked it so much I went and bought a second one that I have never fired ... never loaded....it still has the factory grease on it. I was thinking of selling the second one and getting a P225A1 but will more than likely hang on to it.
Something about all metal, hammer fired, no rail handguns just appeal more to me!

Carried the P220 while working for years and it is safely at rest in the safe. P227 is my house gun. Neither will be sold during my lifetime. Doesn't bother me that they stopped making it.

My P226 is secure until they pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

If I'm not mistaken, the Indiana State Police carries the P227 in addition to the Pennsylvania State Police.

I had a 227 ESE. Nice gun but for whatever reason I couldn't shoot it nearly as well as any of my other hammer fired P-Series guns. Also watching youtube and reading forums this seemed to be a common occurrence with others.

I see this gun failing due to a number of things:

-Its a 9mm world
-The P220 is still around
-The 14 round magazine failure
-Fewer grip options, E2 grips as standard on almost all models(yuck)

Me. I carry a .45 over a 9. That the F.abulous B.ureau of I.ncompetents worships the 9 means nothing since that over educated Gestapo is the enemy of not only the state but of its people.

Oddly their bb guns, optics that need outside power sources and such might be diversification in the eyes of business majors but it is exactly the opposite of the gluuck business model of make one thing and make it right. Its seems to work for those socialists, maybe Cohen ought to try that too when he gets out of BundesJail.

Sig has been firing and laying off employees for ages now, there stories riddle the net. Needing people and crapping on your people.....oh yeah that's another policy of those over educated business majors. So, no change for the future.

Whoa... didn’t see this one coming.

Interesting that the P220 single stack .45 is STILL in production. Maybe those two extra rounds don’t mean so much?
