It's up to you..
Decide if you want a double stack 9mm or a single stack 45acp..
Both are great guns that are the yard sticks that most others are measured against..

I prefer the feel of the single stack SIGs such as the P220, P225, P239..
They just fit my hand better than the double stacks..

I've sold all my SIGs, P220ST, P225, P228, P229X2, P239..
I miss them all BTW..
Down to just a Glock 19 & a few S&W Snubbies that make the "BEST" Carry weapons I've ever owned, Better than SIG, Hk, Glock, Ruger etc etc..
It's all about what your gonna use it for..
For range, carry, house etc.??

Aside from the P210, the P226 has been recognized as the best Sig has to offer and has been a mainstay for decades. Incredible ergonomics and trigger for a combat pistol.

Since you already have an assortment of .45s, why not go for Sig's best 9mm?

This seven year old and has 20k on the clock...

wow cobra, nice collection. looks like all are US made uppers and all fairly recent, except for the back one in the last pic, must be an early us, milled slide but still running an internal extractor, pro series?.

my favorite is the p220, mine is pushing 40k, full german rolled and welded slide. I do really like my custom shop p226 though.

the 9 will be cheaper to shoot, but if you have small hands/short fingers fair warning, the p226 is one of the longer reaches on the market, works well for me but I do have family members that simply can't reach the trigger on my DAK equipped p226. outside of that it's one of the best handguns made, at least it used to be, I haven't been to impressed with sigs quality control over the last few years.

Thanks!

Of the ones shown, the P220ST was born on May 29, 2007, and is one of the last of the P-Series that I bought...

The first one was the P232SL bought in 2003. Up until this year, all 232s were German production.

I say go with the P226 9mm. Everyone needs a little variety. Right now I have 9mm's and .22lr's. I think my next gun will be a .45ACP. Most likely the Glock 21 SF. I will be using my GSSF membership discount to get my next Glock and Im leaning towards the 21 SF.

Hard chrome looks awesome on a Sig. I like the frame in the black, with slide and all controls in HC. Or, if you prefer, a baked on finish like black t or Roguard will provide a businesslike all black pistol.
And for what it's worth, I have carried my 226 quite a bit in Al. and Tn with no ill effects, albeit not in summertime. I just don't think I would like to do that. I know it CAN and HAS been done, I just never tried.
Good Luck and be safe.

I'd take the P226 over the P220 if I had to choose one.

Not too uncommon for one to get a 226 in .4oSW, then purchase a .357SIG barrel and a Bar-Sto 9mm conversion barrel with a 9mm mag and shoot three rounds out of the same gun.
