The steel framed Sigs MADE IN GERMANY are awesome guns. Since they switched over to American production and added the polymer frames, their quality has dropped.

I owned a German P226 9mm in Nickel finish... It was AWESOME. It was heavy, the trigger was heavy, and the DA/SA action made for a tough transition from first to second shot... but the build quality and accuracy were amazing.

I ended up selling it to finance my first AR. It was too heavy to carry, and my poly 9's (M&Ps) had higher capacity with less weight.

I have to disagree with you.My 226 holds 18 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber for a total of 19 who needs more than that?With a spare magazine that's 37 rounds.The stainless slide is much more robust than the folded slide.Not all SIGs have a polymer frame.And I have found that if you lose a couple of pounds you don't even notice the weight.Quality is fine on my P226 and on many I have examined.

I have my shield for EDC, but my next handgun will be a SIG P226 (probably an mk25). I got to shoot one at my local range and loved it.
I'd use it for the range and for home protection. I wouldn't really use it for EDC but I'd OC it if on the motorcycle or if I'm out canoeing.
Concealing that thing on my frame would be pretty tough.

The MK25 (Navy edition P226) is a sweet gun. My friend has one and I've shot it in a few drills. Agree the Da to SA transition takes some getting used to but man is it an accurate gun.

My full size range gun is a P226 in 9mm. It shoots great and it is easy to change calibers. The .22 cal conversion is a fun an inexpensive way to shoot (it shoots about every .22 round I throw in it, but does FTF A LOT with lightweight .22 loads, Slide does not lock on last round either). My compact auto is a 9c, so no small Sigs for me!

I am definitely a Sig guy. I have a P229 Stainless Elite and a X5 Competition. I want a P229 in 357 Sig next. I can CCW a P229 or even P226 with the right holster : Milt Sparks VM II. The springs break in and the trigger smooths out making the DA to SA transition easy. You can buy a Grayguns spring kit to lighten the pull too or get a trigger job from the factory pretty cheap.

I have a P938 for a pocket gun. I like it so well that I'm actually considering a 226 now.

But SIGS are very dangerous to your bank account.

Favorite to shoot is my 226 9mm.
Favorite to carry is a 229 .40.
Best "feel" is a 220 in .45.

They all have their strong points and maybe a couple weak ones.
The 226 magazines end up digging in to me when I carry it.
The 229, while a bit chunky, carries well but the grip is on the hairy edge of being too short for me.
The 220 is pretty great all around, but the 8 shot capacity is a bit short.

I haven't handled a 227 yet.
It's supposed to be the size of a 226, but in .45 ?
Might be ok, but it's hard to say.
I'm sure it is pricey.

I can attest for the SP2022, I love it and for the price is unbeatable.. Shoots accurate and I've never had it jam and I've shot all types or rounds through it.. from Steel cased to reloaded.. There is a reason SIG is chosen for duty..

SIGs are "go to war" and "to he'll and back" guns. They are fantastic weapons. If you have the means to pick one up, I highly recommend it. They are so choice.

I really like my SP2022 but still hoping to "graduate" to a 226.

I had a 320 full size 9, it was a fantastic weapon! I had a hard on for full size, but DAMN the thing is 9 feet long, I would have been better with a compact... it would be the size of a G17 or M&P more or less..

Id love to have a 2022

Id love to have a 226

For a super tight budget, search on CZ999, its a knock off- close but not true sig.

I have a P320 compact 9mm here, and it's a fantastic shooter! Eats anything I feed it. Great trigger right out of the box. A very good value with SIG reliability.
