Sig 220 in 10mm is On It's Way!

Just a heads up in case you haven't already heard.

Sig has prematurely announced their release at Shot Show 2015 to be a Sig 220 in 10mm. I believe there are three P220 version offerings.

Here's the story. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...sig-p220-10mm/

Very cool I love the 10mm round I will have to pick one up when they're released.

I wonder if there will be a P227 model to follow.

I don't buy American Sigs, but it sounds cool.

That's unfortunate. I have four American made SIG pistols and they are as good or better than my German made 226 I bought in 1989. My SIG 1911 has been flawless and is built like a Swiss bank vault

I really really want a A320 sub-compact when they finally come out.

Heard about it and can't wait to go hands-on with a Sig 10mm.

I've got a "Made in W. Germany" Sig 220 (1994 production) that's a great shooter.

"W.German" Sig 220.

Although I carried a S&W 1076 for over a decade, I always thought the frame-mounted decocker on Sig's autoloaders was more robust than what Smith came up with.

I'm also curious about the magazine capacity for the new 10mm Sigs.
I can't remember what the GrayGun's conversions held, but those were stock Sig .45 mags modified to feed the 10mm cartridge. If Sig .45 mags hold 8-rds, I'm guessing the 10mm mags would hold ... 10?

My guess would be 9 rounds, based on capacity of the 1911 flush fit (modern) .45 magazine = 8 rounds , 10mm = 9 rounds.

Well, if Colt's Delta Elite mags are any guide, they are 8-rounders only but use a "flat" metal bottom plate, not a base pad as found on other aftermarket 10mm mags like Wilsons.

Tripp's 10mm Cobra mags, for example, use base pads and are 9-rounders, so the Sig 10mm mag could be a 9-rounder unless Sig devises some sort of special base pad that allows for loading an extra round beyond that - thereby making total capacity 10 in the mag and 1 in the chamber.

It's for real. Sig had two 220 models in their booth at SHOT. Same gun, but one was a "match" version...and came with fixed sights. Why not adjustable? The magazine is single stack and numbered up to 8. It's a big, heavy gun, and by the looks of it will handle any 10mm you can fit in the magazine. Not sure what the advantages are over any other 10mm out there as it's probably one of the heaviest, has the lowest round capacity, and doesn't come with adjustable sights. Still great to see another manufacturer making a 10mm!

Thanks for the update.

FYI, "adjustable" sights aren't needed on a pistol intended for CCW, duty use, or mil-combat. So for me it's a non-issue.

Adj sights are for guys into target shooting and gun-games. The fixed Novaks on my Smith 1076 & 1006 always shot to POA across a wide variety of 10mm loads.

What disappoints me a bit, though, is I was hoping that the magazine capacity of the Sig 10mm would be at least equal to, or more than, Smith's 10XX-series mags. Those held 9, so your load-out started as a 9+1 proposition.

OTOH, the slim profile of my 1076 always concealed much better than my Glock 20, and so too my old .45acp Sig P220. Sounds like that will be the case with this 10mm model.

Yep...Especially since they already have the P227 staggered 12 shot 45 ACP. I like both my 227 and my 220 for different reasons but I already have a Delta Elite and a Glock 20 that I barely shoot already. So I may not venture into the 220 10mm pool for a while.
