At SHOT Show, I took a look at the new SIG 224. And I’ll be honest. I didn’t like it.
It’s standard SIG, the way we prefer our SIG’s. Alloy frame, DA/SA with a Rebounding Hammer. Add some night sights, and controls that were tweaked to still be used when made tiny… and you have a real SIG and not… well… not a P250.
After playing around with it… it’s grown on me. A lot. The gun is a serious Pinky Dangler, but thanks to the shape, texture, you can still get a solid hold on the pistol.
Which is good, because it’s a .40 cal. I like that. And I like the P224.
But it’s not the gun that I want. I want something different.
This is my Holy SIG Grail. A P220 Compact SAS. If you guys want to chip in and by me a birthday present… this is it. I’ve wanted one of these for 20 years, when I first read of guys spending big bucks chopping down standard P220’s. And we have one now at the Gun Store I work at. 999.99. Oh man… And there is nothing I can do about it thanks to the Bride’s new Expedition.
