P227 Discontinued

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 they were only offering the Nitron and RX model.

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.

Yeah, the P227 demise has been forecast for some time, now. So, no surprise at all.

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.

I wonder what pistol the Pennsylvania State Police will switch to.
They have had the P227 for about 4 years.
Will any of those duty pistols ever see a commercial resale ?

Yeah that’s weird. P227 to me always seemed like a good full-size duty pistol in .45. Probably just another victim of the move back to 9mm. But it makes you wonder how secure is the p226 even, and how the p220 keeps trucking along.

A classic. Have the 227 SAS and a great shooter. Disappointed to see her phased out. But not surprised.
