Realizing that some are classic, and others are wildly popular, but these are my no buy:

1- The P230/232 - Clearly classic SIGs, but I've never liked the .380.
2- The P320 - Obviously SIG's latest and greatest hyped gun. But, after fondling them, and shot the "X-Five" Roll Eyes , I was totally underwhelmed.
3- The "1911"- A 1911 with a long external extractor? NOPE!
4- Any long external extractor SIGs - To me, a SIG just doesn't look right with this thing on. Yes, purely cosmetic, but I do care. That's why my M11A1s are gone.
5- The P238 and P938 - Never been a fan of the Colt Mustang types.


What are your no buy SIGs?

Not even sure this counts as a SIG, but a Mosquito.
238 is a close second, only because it's a 1911-style .380.
Just about everything else I'd have no problem picking up if the price was right.

I carried a SIG on duty/off duty/CCW etc... from 1990 to 2005. I attended numerous classes with one, shot various forms of competition with one, trained other shooters with one, etc...

But as of today, I don't think that there is any SIG pistol that I would buy or buy again. I recently tried out the SIG P320, after all; lots of people really are liking them. Nope, not for me.

Time will tell, but for now - no more SIGs in the foreseeable future.

My Mosquito is one of the worst guns I have ever owned. It's been back to Sig twice, still doesn't work. It's so awful that I would feel guilty about selling it to someone, so the piece of crap is still occupying space in my safe.

like you, any of the 1911 stuff, including the little 938. I'm just not into 1911s.

The P224 doesn't turn me on either.

P320. I tried, I really did. At one time I had 4 of them. The only one I kept was a FS 9mm because my son likes to shoot it.

And it may be because of ignorance, but I have no interest in the MPX line, either.

Pretty much exactly what he said!


For ME:
DA/SA= Sig 9mm
Striker fired= Glock 9mm
If it's a .45= 1911
Suppressed= HK in .45
I like anything in 10mm

Anything SAO-I like all my Sigs to be DA/SA
P320- I have a G32 and shoot it well
P230/232-Don't shoot .380 much and have an older PPK/S
P224-Don't see the need.
Anything with bling on it
The new P225 or M11A1-I like my German ones

I ONLY buy the Elite P Series Pistols in DA/SA configuration! Considering the 227 Elite right now, putting it up against the HK45. LOVE large Beavertail, won't buy a Legion because it lacks the Large Beavertail!

No fly list: DAO (had a P250 and couldn't shoot it worth a poop). DAK. Striker (P320).

V-Tail approved list: I like SIG DA / SA, might consider SAO.

Any Legion. Overhyped and overpriced.

Had a mosquito for a while. Quite accurate but too many issues so ever again.

First Sig ever was a 226 equinox in 40. Probably never get another of those heavy pigs.

No current sigs but I'd like to get another 226 or 228.

Mosquito, ( had one and it ran ok, but was never really happy with it, so off it went. )

250, never impressed with it, never bought it.

320, feels good and shot good for me, but I'm pretty much locked into Glock for the polymer framed gun department.

P239. A tweener. Heavy and big as CCW go along with low capacity. P225 fits this application better IMO. And of course a P228/P229 and G19 blows it away.

P250. Not a fan of DOA

Anything DAK. Tried it, didn't like it.

P938. I've got a P238 and like it well enough not to sell it right now, but the 9mm version doesn't do much for me.

Anything Sig has trick-up. Rainbow et al

The rainbow & diamond plate are near the top from the aesthetic perspective.
Don't know that I'd carry a SAO, so the P238/98 are out.
Wanted a P250 when I registered here, but have since acquired a P320, so the 250 is a good bit down the want list as well.

P227. Wanted to love it, especially for a suppressor host, just never could get comfortable with it.

P238/P938/1911. As others have said none of these have any attraction for me. Owned one 1911 in my entire life and never cared for it.

P239. Like NavyGuy just too big to be good for CCW, too low round count for anything else.

My Mosquito for sure- I had to get rid of it after really wanting to like it. It always let me down at the range.
