    Just had a bad experience on Sigforum trying to register, never visiting that site again. Anywho i am going to purchase a Sig Pro SP2022 in .40 very soon (within months) and am looking forward to it highly. however, i understand that during the last few years there have been some different sources of manufacture for different parts of the handgun (example: first the frames were made in switzerland and shipped to germany to be assembled, then everything was made in germany) and that now some or all of the parts are made in the U.S, there have been some problems in California with a specific batch of U.S made sp2022's (hate to say it but that's what you get for trying to own a weapon in that sorry excuse for a state anyway). Anyways, i have heard that the german made models are of highest quality. So should i look out for used or new Old stock German made frame models, or would i be O.K having my LGS order one from the factory new? or if i ordered one from Budsgunshop would that yield me a higher chance of getting a high quality 2022? i really don't know much about the differences in country of origin. what serial numbers should i look for or avoid?

    Thanks for any and all input. Seems like a GREAT gun for the price. and i will be trading my glock 20 for it sssssso id REALLY like to make sure the one i get is a good one.

  3. older ones are great. newer ones with the german frame and exeter slide seem to be good as well. either would be fine and unless you have a lot of .40 cal ammo, get a 9mm. just because .40 makes a bigger boom and has more snappy recoil does not mean it is a better platform.

    Why not just get one of the older ones from Mark at Summit Gun Broker? He's got the Blue Line 2340's for $325+$18 S/H and whatever your FFL fees amount to. For me it'd be $375 out the door, soon as we've got the funds I'm going to beg, er' I mean ask my wife if I can spring for one. :supergrin:
  5. I'm no expert, but I love my SP2022. :)
  6. Same here. Both of them (9mm and .40S&W).


    These were made in 2009.

    I dont have any .40 ammo actually. having a backround of only shooting (centerfire wise) .45's and .40's, i could never ever step ALL the way down to a 9mm, going with .40 was hard enough. For ME a .40 would be a great platform, whenever SHTF, i know i will be able to take deer with a placed .40 and not have to track the deer very far. Im not going to Give 9mm owners trouble, its just not for me (unless the weapon could fit in my pocket, like a PF9 which i love)
  10. do they make a 9mm barrel for the 40 caliber guns? conversion?

    The 2340 and the 2022 are both great guns. I would lean toward the 2022 only because the rail on the 2340 is proprietary, as opposed to the 2022s which is the same as the Glock. If the rail isn't an issue, then you have two fine choices.

    Do you absolutely have to have polymer? If not, take a look at the P229 in .40. Possibly the most accurate .40 I've ever shot.
  12. Are their any rail adapters for the older?

    I believe there used to be an adapter available, but they were hard to come by. I believe that was the reason for the production of the 2022.
  14. I like my 2022 also.
