If in CA, you'd better get one of them, as once CA's 'must have mag safety, chamber loaded indicator' specs hit, they will not likely be on CA's infamous 'approved list'...

To many people love the 220 to stop making them.

Too many people loved the non-railed stainless steel P220ST to stop making them, but they did.

Too many people loved the non-railed stainless steel P229ST to stop making them, but they did.

Too many people loved the non-railed stainless steel P226ST to stop making them, but they did except in Eckernförde.

There is no rhyme or reason to what Sig's bean counters will or won't do.

I'm not so sure it's always the bean counters. Look at the cast of characters running the company. Director of Marketing made some comments at the 2010 SHOT show:

I think Sig need to fire the marketing round table guys . They are really starting to jump the shark with these two. I want to see the test market they used for them. Guess the next one with be all chrome and fake pearl grips and called the (Pimp) and a fake pink pearl grip model called the (hooker).

Agreed. Where are the shooters? Better yet, where are the adults?

With thirty-two 220 models, you have to wonder if all of them are worth production cutover time.



Here's the P220 Match Elite.

"The SIG SAUER® P220® P220 Match Elite defines accuracy..."


They should have added, "... at night. With it's tacti-cool tac rail, you can mount your Sig accessory light to enable you to shoot like an Olympic champion in a dark alley."

I think I'll get one of these and take some bulls eye, precision shooting, low-light, dark alley classes.

That is one 220 they didn't need rails added. I believe they take a blank frame and sit around a table and think of what to add to it. I do wish they made the option of non rail or rail on the pistols. If they would ditch some of there models they could afford to cast and sell them .

Sigsters have been b1tching and moaning about the rails for years. There have been poll after poll. About 2/3 of us want non-railed Sigs.

Several times I've written to Exeter with the poll results; no response from the arrogant ones.

BTW, the steel frames are machined out of stainless steel bar.

Yeah , I knew the stainless models were milled but are the aluminum pistol frames cast then milled or milled from stock . I know the rifle pic on top was cast and then milled correct . Great pic of the stainless blank.

I don't remember all the details from a Sigster post long ago.

My issued P220R is great. I plan on buying it, when I retire. Mine has Sig NS, short trigger, and Hogue rubber grips with no fingergrooves.

I don't see rails as a big issue. It's a popular trend like hooked trigger guards used to be. Shooters clamored for rails, now they don't want them. Take them off and watch the outcry of them being gone. There will always be a segment of the public you can't make happy.

Beretta is now making a version of the 92 FS guns without the hooked trigger guard. People pissed and moaned forever to have that option. Now it has gone out of favor. The public is fickle and goes for every popular fad that comes along. If some pro shooter mounted a full length turd under the barrel of his gun for better balance, the next day there would be a hundred guys griping because their gun isn't made to mount the "turd option".
