I have been sorely tempted a few times to pick one up.

But, ultimately, it won't be more accurate than my RIA 10mm (not even semi customs are, in my hands) and I just like 1911s better.

Yet, I still remain tempted :)

Edit: I should mention I shot a 220 SAO legion in .45 and it's VERY nice, maybe even a better fit for me than my 226 Legion SAO (which I adore).

I have a 220 Stainless Elite in .45 ACP and it is easily one of my favorite pistols. The fit and finish is similar to a high end 1911 in my opinion.

The triggers are just not as good as even mid range 1911s in my hands, much as I wish they were.

And fit and finish even on Elite and Legion don't approach a Wilson or Nighthawk, it's just not close.

I had one. Definitely has a heavy build so should stand up well. I really wanted to like it but the trigger was just ok. Maybe it could have broken in over time or i could have swapped it out for an aftermarket, but I had other 10mms I liked more. The SA trigger on the SA/DA 220 Legion is nicer. Still i'd consider another down the road if i found it for a deal.

I disagree. The semi custom 1911's from the major shops are well beyond anything Sig mass produces in the States from a fit and finish standpoint, in my opinion.

I agree. The P220 that does in my opinion, is the P220S from Germany. Here's a couple used models in decent shape on Gunbroker. Awesome pistols from the Sig Sauer Mastershop. All steel.

Still haven't bitten on 10mm yet. One of those things I've been meaning to get to.

But I think, for me, if I was going with a SIG, I'd get the DA/SA version. If I'm going 10mm SA, it would be a 1911.

I've handled both SIG models, haven't fired them, but I too like the all steel construction. They seemed like nice pistols to me.

This will be my first 10mm so I'm thinking I'm better off with the SIG rather than a 1911 as some 1911's are finiky about ammunition. SIGs in my experience just work period. If I was going to go 1911 I'd go with a DW Razorback 10mm. Thanks for the advice on sticking with the DA/SA.

Sounds like a plan.

Good luck with your purchase

Solid logic, I don't think you'll be disappointed in the least.

I also see they added the stainless frame to the 10mm, smart, should tame the beast some.

I want! I have a West German Sig 220, just a regular one. It is a fantastic gun, the trigger and accuracy blew away my modern 220. This gun would be awesome IMO.
They are great shooters, bunk. There are a couple on Gunbroker right now in decent shape for reasonable prices.

I also like the WG models. I’ve got a couple 9mms
