Alot of web hype about welded German slides are better. The truth is the one piece stainless nitron coated U.S. made guns are more robust when it comes to service life,hotter ammo and not rusting. I got rid of my old out dated German pistols for the new U.S. made ones.

+1 on this one! I have 7 Glocks and bought my first P226 9mm last year. I shoot it better than any of my Glocks except my G34. I absolutely love the SIG and it's just as reliable as any Glock I own. Now all I can do is think about SIG's. Trying to decide which .40 or .45 cal SIG to get next!

You've got that right! I bought a 1991 P228 last summer for my girlfriend, and I've been looking for another one for myself ever since! It's incredibly accurate and has so far been reliable through almost a thousand rounds, and who knows how many were fired in the two decades prior. Hopefully it won't be too long til I find a good deal on another one of similar vintage, then I can start looking for other models.

I agree. The newer u.s. ones are more robust. They were made stronger to shoot 40 and later the 357. The older German made folded slides Would never hold up. What's there not like? And yes,they are just as reliable. All mine are u.s. made slides and NEVER had one problem with any of them.

I have six of them, some German some not. I favor the German made guns, better balance than US made guns. Sig's are great, lube em up and run the hard

I have five: two W. German P220, a German P245, a 1980 former W. German Police P6 and an early Exeter built P239-9.

Of that litter, I find the P239-9 to be most accurate.

Oh, yes....I have the highly contagious SIG-ness, too, as I'm awaiting the soon to be released 9mm P-938.

It is a Sig after all. Don't expect anything less!

Nice gun and nice shooting!

I haven't tried the G10's on the 220. Are they still as thin as the stock plastic grips?

The short answer is yes Sig still makes great firearms. I think the P226, 229, 220, 239 are my favorites.

Nope. No P250SC-9 either. I'm leaning toward SAO subcompact 9mm.
