I am in the market for a new modern handgun and am liking the sig pro 2022 in .40s&w. I almost bought one a couple years ago and am thinking about making the leap. Only thing that scares me is the 3.86in barrel length. So if anyone has any opinion or insight on the .40cal sp2022 i'd love to hear it. Also can it handle hundreds of +p loads?

happy shooting, be safe

I have one in 9mm and think it's a teriffic weapon. One of the better polymer pistols. Sorry I can't speak from experience on the .40, but see no reason to think it's any different than my 9.

I had two. I got one early German finish with med grip. I liked so much decided to try to small grip. But instead buying a $20 grip, I end up with a 2nd 2022 with small grip. :supergrin:

They are good, reliable pistols. But I dislike the later Nitron finish. And the small grip did not fit my hand as well as the med grip.

2022 it's rated for +P, so worry not.

Great pistol value. Overbuilt and will last a long time. Sig knows how to build soft shooting .40's.

I just got a 9mm SP2022 a few weeks ago. It's a great pistol. After a little bit of breaking in, my trigger is AMAZING.

How is accuracy? i am talking at a decent range like 25yds? i have heard only good things. Also i will most likely be swapping my G20 for this handgun because the glock's grip is too large for my medium-sized hands to accurately use. So i figure this smaller double-stack .40 grip should fit me well with the proper sizers attached.

If I needed a quality mid-size pistol for $400 or less, the 2022 would be at or near the top of the list.

2022 is as accurate as any other service pistol.

As much as I recommend 2022, I do not suggest you to trade in your G20 for 2022. Not until you try out the 2022 in person and really have your heart set on it.

Yes you are right, it would be a gamble at the least. My immediate attractions to the pistol are

1-I hear it is VERY accurate for such a short barrel
2-the grip is most definently going to be easier to wrap my hands around (with proper sizer attached)
3- .40S&W is most definently cheaper and easier to find than 10mm auto, and would be plenty of stopping power against an attacker (or food (deer of course) when Schit hits the fan)
4-although there is no possible way it could be as reliable as a Glock, i have heard in terms of durability, and reliability, they are vvvvvvery close

1) don't worry about the stock pistol's accuracy. I can promise you both Glock or Sig will be more accurate than you are.

3) don't forget you can always convert your G20 to 40s&w by getting a conversion barrel. It will be cheaper than buying a new gun and avoid trader's remorse.

4) both my Sig 2022s and all 3 of my Glocks have perfect record in reliability department.

Check your local range to see if they have one for rental. Or ask members near you. If you live close to me, I would be happy to let you try out my 2022 (though it's in 9mm).

"Uncle Mikes" has a kydex OC Paddle type. It isn't really "concealable yet it's a paddle type:dunno:works well for the range but it is adjustable via two screws and different holes. Once you choose an angle loctite the screws or you will lose one (like I did)

I can't find a model number on it, but they make the same model for a bunch of pistols molded to the pistol.

My 9mm 2022 has been fantastic. I figure the .40 will be to. Can't find a better value in a quality handgun IMO. I paid $399 at buds for mine.

It is my understanding the American made coatings are NOT as good as the European coatings due to Enviro issues and Greenies running the USA.:crying:

Mine has the Illafon (I thinks that's how you spell it) finish, which is shinier, darker and smoother than nitron. Both are good but not perfect. Having a gun that functions all the time is what counts.

With a few site in shots we were hitting a empty one gallon milk jug about 2 out of three times two handed at 50 yds with a 9mm Sig 2022. The USA Ionbond vapor coating used by Sig today and still called Nitron is the most durable finish Sig as used worldwide. And yes its on the SP2022 made in NH Exeter. There were a few generations of Sig Nitron finish and the USA is the best of the bunch. Same finish used on the the Navys Mk-25,s Slides. Hello salt water. One piece stainless slide coated with Ionbond Nitron finish same as 2022,s. The 2022 is a military&LE pistol overseas with near a Million in service in 6 countrys even sold some to the DEA,USA.

I liked mine a lot, never had any malfunctions but I probably put only 800 rounds through it. The one thing I didn't like was lack of aftermarket things for it, specifically holsters. I tried to carry it concealed but it just didn't work for me. I know many XD holsters fit but didn't work out. I sold it only to fund my new Sig M400 AR-15.

I had one in 9mm and it was a very nice pistol. Sold it because I couldn't find a descent left handed holster. The only issue that I had with it is that during reloads my pinkie finger got wedged between the frame and mag heel. I slammed the magazine in like I always do, and it freakin hurt. Never had this with any other pistol that I have shot.

My brother just picked up a SP2022 in .40 and we shot it for the first time last Saturday. All I have to say is...get it and shoot the snot out of it. Really nice pistol for the price.

10-29-2012, 11:34
I know several people who have the 9mm version. Best deal out there today. Same price as the Ruger SR9, SR40, SR40c, & SR9c series but a better pistol IMO. My friend who owns a gun shop buys them by the hundreds and can't keep them in stock. Don't know anyone who has a .40 because it is a high pressured round so people I know go either 9mm or 45acp. I say why not get a Sig for $399. You can't go wrong. They seem great and are a couple ounces lighter than a P-229. Best of luck.

I like mine a lot, to me it matches the reliability and ergonomics of the original P-series Sigs but costs less than a glock.

I have a 2340 in .40. My favorite of three .40s I own.

Do yourself a favor and go to,

http://www.handloads.com/misc/saami.htm

and look at the pressure maximums. The .40 works at the same pressure as the 9mm. In facth the 9mm+P is higher than the .40.

The ".40 is a higher pressure round" is simply an internet and guncounter Canard.

i really like the trigger on the Sp2022 better than most DA/SA polymer handguns that and i do have a soft spot for SIG

if you can snag one for a good price might as well get it

I just got a Galco Silhouette for the Springfield XD that fits my SP2022 with 1913 rail. The thumbbreak was tough to get snapped, but it stretched a bit and is fine now. The holster also fits my P228 & G-23.

I have one and I love it- one of the best triggers I have shot "out-of-the-box."

I bought mine for $466 at a local gunshow - not to shabby.

as far as holsters go- any Springfield XD holsters will fit perfectly (exept the XDS) - I got a Galco Kingtuk IWB for an XD - fits perfect. also I have a Versacarry which will fit any 9mm - so it works well in that too. - a sptringfield paddle holster will fit too. you can also buy a sig holster to fit the actual weapon if you want I know they do make them.

**also - you can easily modify a Beretta M9/92 magazine for this by filing the mag catch hole on the magazine down a little bit - a very cheap alternative for the expensive Sig mags- the downside to this is a little bit of the mag sticks out of the bottom of the handle - but, if using for the range or a "survival" situation, I can deal with it. always nice to have a spare mag or (2) of 15 rounds/each - plus you can pick up a Berretta mag for a 3rd or Quarter of the price as the Sig mags- like $10-$15 instead of $40-$50 for the Sig Mag.

I love mine it's 9mm, great value. It's my 1st Sig.

It's happiest when cleaned/lubed every 200 rounds. I do that anyway, but you know how Glocks are, yo can almost forget to clean them.

The only gripe, and you've heard it already is the price of the magazines, around $30!

I like my 2022 in 9mm. Did take a bit of racking the slide and firing to make it reliable as mine had tight frame to slide fit. But now fine.

Sig is regulated for what they call a "combat" sight picture where you cover the target completely with front sight. Naturally holding a sight picture off top of front sight results in low hit.

I replaced #8 rear with a #10 from CDNN. This raised point of impact, but may still be about inch or so low at 25 yards or it may be me. And the rear sight is in tight. I had to buy MGW sight pusher to remove and install new rear sight.

Mine cost $370 plus tax and transfer fee. So under $400 out the door and price included frame mounted laser. Only came with one mag, but I got some more on special with CDNN, before the madness, for just under $34 each in hand. I am happy camper.

I rarely miss a gun when sold but I did miss my 2022 so I just bought another, in 357 Sig though. So far, only 275 rounds but flawless out of the box. So hard to come by ammo, even 357 Sig ammo now. Very soft shooter with the 357 ammo compared to my old G23 with the 357 barrel.

I've never heard this before. I've had my 2022 for about a month, working on my grip, stance, etc. My last range trip had me shooting about 3 inches low. I've been having a difficult time figuring out why since I was working hard to control my trigger pull. I wonder if this might be the issue.

I know an old thread but my 2022 in .357 Sig went south shortly after I made the above statement. Back to Sig 2 times and just got rid of it. I think the 2022 is still a fantastic gun, as my 9mm version was excellent but I just happened to get a lemon. It happens though if I buy one again, it will be in 9mm.

I have two of them... one in 9MM one in 40... both are real accurate... I use the 9 in PPC compitition... the 40 shoots 2.5 inches at 25 yards and the 9 shoots 2 inches... the 40 holds 12 rounds and the 9 i have 17 round mags for.... I have around 4000 rounds thru the 9 and a thousand thru the 40 and no stopages.... now tell me ... whats not to like.... I think some of the xd holsters will take a 2022 and I know crossbreed and old faithful have iwb that take the 2022 and are real comfortable to carry all day long'
