I have an older 1998 P220/45 DA/SA with a stamped steel slide and factory nickel plating.
Don't know what you mean by Gen 2?
When they switched to Stainless slides maybe???
I also have a P239/357 DA/SA that's just a few years old.
And has a stainless steel slide with black Nitron finish.
The P239 has a more refined glassy trigger than the P220.
They both have nice triggers though.
I had an SRT kit installed on the P239,
but honestly couldn't tell the difference shooting it.
I'm having professional trigger jobs done on both Sigs
as we speak and having an SRT kit installed on the P220 as well.
SRT is Short Reset Trigger
and is a newer thingy that I don't think existed when my P220 was manufactured. But upgrade kits are still available for it.
I don't believe you're not going to be able to tell the short reset from dry fire anyway.
The short trigger is a newer thingy like the SRT, and can be had and installed in older guns as well. It's literally a shorter length to put your finger on the trigger for folks with short fingers.
I have small hands. And fingers are short as most girls.
And I don't need or want of a short trigger
Even though some trigger internals, springs and such have
changed over the years.
Lots of the parts are still interchangeable within the same model.
The newer stainless steel slides with slide right on and work on my older pre-stainless alloy P220 receiver.
