    I've never warmed up to sigs because as a lefty the decocker was on the wrong side:crying: However Sigs now come in different configurations, and now I'm thinking I need a Sig. CDNN has Sig P220 limited edition SAOs for $689. I trust CDNN, but I gotta ask why is this gun so inexpensive(for a Sig)??? Is it okay, or did this model have issues? Any info/opinions are greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    I got my last Sig P220 at a LEO price of $635.

    Did you see these online or in a flyer some where?

    With all due respect, the de-cocker is not necessarily "on the wrong side" once you understand its purpose, and learn how to "run-the-gun."

    Furthermore, why would you decide switching from a DA/SA to a SAO because of the perception that a lefty can't operate a de-cocker? Since the manual of arms is totally different, it leads me to believe you don't know what you want.

    Regardless, as a lefty, I've had no difficulty effectively running these DA/SA Sigs over the last seven years.

    Finally, the cost issue is, or should be, one of the least important considerations in choosing a handgun.

    YMMV :)

    Sometimes Sigs come up in that price range. Don't let it scare you. If you like the pistol buy it. BTW, they made a lot of those SAO 220's. Limitted edition? I guess but there's a lot of those things runnin around. A few months ago I even saw them for sale as CPO's and police trade ins.

    Best to you on your decision.

    PEACE!

    The decocker, and slide release are very easily operated by the trigger finger for leftys. I find it easier than if I try to decock with my thumb when shooting right handed.

    You are correct with using the left trigger finger to manipulate the de-cocking lever and mag release.

    However, I don't recall the last time I've used the slide lock lever to release a slide. My preference is slingshot or hand-over.

    That 226ST now has over 20k on the clock. :)

    CDNN buys closeouts and dealer over stock I have been buying from them
    for many years. Most used guns are almost new when you get them

    I don't think that particular gun is so inexpensive as to make me question something...perhaps you've been seeing a lot of overpriced Sigs :dunno: Price seems just about right to me, if that's what you're looking for.

    Is this with the external or internal extractor?
