Source for 220 slides?

Does anybody have any suggestions for a place to buy a new or used P220 slide? I'd prefer a full top end, but would be happy just to find a slide. So far I haven't had any luck with Sig. The way they're moving everything to plastic 9mm's, I'm not holding my breath on them for awhile. Numrich has a stainless stripped for $424 (could almost buy a used gun for that), a stripped nitron that is cut for an adjustable rear for $300 (the cuts on the back look like they'd cause trouble though), and a stripped nitron that looks right but the model says compact sao (I don't know if that matters or not). I'm looking to have a slide milled for an RDS but want to find an extra slide to do it to and keep my factory slides as they are. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I recently spent a few months looking myself. Eventually a lightly used one came up on eBay that I won. Just checked and there is one used upper on there right now. Expect to spend a good amount of money though, like you said, you may be able to find a whole used gun for not too much more.

I wanted it for the same reason and it is being finished up at the shop now. Was Nitron, and I’m having it cerakoted to hopefully come close to the Scorpion color I have.

The Compact slide has a 3.9" Barrel just like the Carry models, the Compact is actually an abbreviated grip model, that normally only comes with the 3.9" barrel.

I picked up one of the 5" slides, myself, and fitted a Bar-Sto barrel, they will all work on the P220 Locking Insert... here's my P220ST sporting all 3 lengths...

They are about your only current option, unless Sig decides to start selling Caliber X-Change kits for the Classic models again, but I wouldn't hold my breath, as they keep reducing the number of models yearly, as it is.

Unfortunately Numrich is currently shut down due to COVID-19, and Governor Cuomo...

Gunbroker is usually your best bet when looking for slides. Stay away from ebay, as the bidding usually goes too high.

Here's a P227 slide. I believe it's the same as the P220, just marked differently. I've purchased from him a few times. Price seems reasonable.

I am glad this thread was started.

I was just thinking about changing my full size equinox to a carry, and was wondering if it was even possible.

If I am understanding from previous post, is that i can almost convert to a 227 or 225.

P225 is totally different than the P220 or P227.
