    I have recently seen one of these and kinda liked how it felt in my hand. Anyone have a Sig 220 I can shoot, just to satisfy my curiosity?

    I do. I'm planning on being at the range in Cumming on Sunday. (There is another thread on it) I can bring it there if you would like.

    I think I may be interested in shooting in my old stumping grounds with you nice gentlemen. I would appreciate it if you can bring the P220.

    Has it been 100% for you? How many rounds have you fired? Thx

    I don't recall any issues with it, it isn't one I shoot all the time....probably shot 300-400 rounds thru it since new. I'll bring it on Sunday.

    Cumming is a bit far north for me to drive to shoot, but if you're in Atlanta and inside the perimeter, I'm willing to let you shoot mine and see how you like it. It's been well loved (bought it used and have shot several hundred rounds through it since), but it's still a great gun.

    I've got a couple at the shop you can shoot if you're on the Northwest side.

    I own two. The first has over 60,000 rounds through it. I change the recoil spring every 4000 rounds, and at ~42,000, the trigger-return spring had to be replaced. That's it.

    At this point, the gun has earned its retirement, but it's still truckin'. Rifling is still intact, and although fit and finish are pretty rough, it's still as accurate as it was ten years ago.

    Easily one of the greatest .45 service automatics ever made.

    I live in Grant Park, so maybe we can meet up at the Forest Park range sometime?

    tace,

    I didn't get a chance to ask you how you liked it. I suspect it was shooting off to the right, I noticed the front sight was hard to see at the range, now that I've cleaned it, I see something must have whacked it. It isn't aligned anymore and the trijicon tube is broken. Sorry about that, hopefully it at least gave you an idea what one shot like.

    Really? I didn't really notice, since I am not used to night sights anyway. I was shooting fine with it, straighter than my own XD. The difference is that with my XD I was shooting everything to the same exact spot, 6 inches to the right and with the 220 I was shooting more straight. Maybe, the bad sight is what I needed. :lol:

    Thanks for letting me shoot the P220. I appreciate it. I had the same thing as other .45s, when I try to shoot fast, I get fliers. I wonder if its because I am not used to the .45.

    The 220 is a great fighting pistol!

    It isn't that far off, if you were shooting fairly close, it might not have made much difference.

    Not a problem. Could be the .45 or maybe just the trigger pull being different than an XD.

    Grip, trigger control and follow trough.

    Hey Ken,
    My problem at the moment with the XD Sc is that even though I am shooting most shots at the same spot (nice groups), that spot is about 3-4 inches to the left at 10 yards, even more at greater distances.

    Do you think its partly the gritty trigger?

    Could be but more than likely the gritty trigger finger. :lol:

    Turns out it's the grip. Took about 200 rounds to fix :)
