My new baby... SP2022

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share my joy today in bringing home a new firearm, a Sig Pro SP2022 in 9mm. Did a quick clean and lube job to it and put only 50 rounds through it with no problems at all. Still way too early to tell, I know, but I'm happy so far. Anyway, I look forward to shooting this baby.

And, just in case anyone was curious, my SP2022 was manufactured in June of this year. There's no LCI and it has an internal extractor. And, my contrast sights are the dot-post version.

Thanks for posting.

An SP2022 made in 2012 w/ an internal extractor? I thought that was long ago changed to the external extractor. But then, I also thought all the new production had LCI's...

Great pistols those SigPros!

Congratulations. Sounds like you got nearly the same 2022 as I have. They're a dream to shoot. Enjoy!

Great pistols those SigPros!
Could have been some new old stock slides that Sig had already made, and with the current production runs, they may have ran out of the slides that have the LCI and external extractors and finally reached the back of the shelves so to speak.



OH BTW, Welcome kuyawil to the forum from Texas and a fellow SP2022 owner.

Thanks everyone! I really am loving this pistol even though my first range trip with it was brief. One of the things I wanted to see was if I liked the dot-post sight that it came with. And honestly, I'm actually able to acquire the sights faster than the three-dot sights that are on my 1911 and my M&P45. Because of this, it has definitely got me re-thinking my situation... Heinie Straight 8's, anyone?

Lastly, one thing I noticed with my SP2022 is that the shells were ejecting directly rearward and a little to my right. In fact, a few shells actually landed on my forearm near the elbow (OUCH! It did burn a little but it's nothing like a 45ACP shell). Anyway, is this trajectory something that will improve with break-in? Just curious.

Cheers!

I agree about sights, tho I wound up filing off the front dot, filing to zero and blacking in the rear dots on my field pistol.

As for ejection, bad ejection problems were one of the many reasons I got away from Glocks, but I have read reported similar ejection issues to those you describe occuring with 2022's. For myself, the first shot out of the gun hit me in the head, then after that, literally, all was well.

My recommendation would be to shoot it a bit more, see if ejection pattern improves, and then if not, send it straight back to SIG. I have a feeling you will be OK with these pistols. In reverse to some Glocks, the ejection pattern seems to improve with these pistols, not get worse.
