This is a discussion on P227 Discontinued within the SIG Sauer Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Forum category; Just checked sigs website and the P227 has been removed all together. I guess it was only a matter of time considering last I checked ...

That’s unfortunate... but it was a *big* gun and still didn’t really hold a lot of rounds of .45ACP to justify the size. Even though a P220 holds even less, the grip shape is better.
I briefly had a P227. Couldn’t figure out why I’d shoot it instead of my P220 or 1911.

Makes one wonder just WHO is in-charge of the product line at Sig Sauer now-a-days?
Seems they're making a lot of changes, not all of them positive.
To answer haldir: I'm keeping my P227 SAS!

I recently bought a P227SAS here.
I had one a few years back and sold it. It was the only pistol I sold and regretted it so when I found a great deal I jumped on it.
The P227SAS is basically a P229 in 45ACP
It uses the same holsters.
My reason for having it is this: While I prefer having 15+1 9MM 124 gr if there is ever a national mag restriction limiting capacity to 10 rounds I would rather have 10+1 200gr JHP 45ACP than 10+1 124gr 9MM
I am sure Sig has their reasons but I can't think of a good one to discontinue this fine 45 pistol that can go 14+ 1 with the extended mags and 10+1 as a carry IWB EDC
As always of course, IMO

I haven't seen anyone publish a discontinued list for 2019.
The P227 ESE was discontinued for 2018.
As I recall, all they still had listed on the site was the full-size Nitron.
They had discontinued the 14-round mags rather than put some decent springs in them to make them reliable. After they did that, all the P227 was is a fatter P220 that holds only 2 extra rounds - which you get with the +2 mag for the P220 in a much thinner package.
Sad. I'll be keeping my full-size P227 Equinox.

Glad I got a P227SAS earlier this year from here.
Even though it only holds 10 rounds of .45ACP, it shares the holsters with my P229SAS.
It's in my carry rotation and when I travel in/through capacity restricted states it comes with me and the P229 has to stay home in the safe.
