"It pays to be a winner."
Nice, time to go shopping.
Got one about 8 months ago in .40 S&W off the big green gun auction site, but it had a mag disconnect, was an LEO turn it. Had to send it to Robert at the Sig Armorer to get that crap off.
Then I bought a brand new .357 Sig bbl from Sig themselves, but it would bind up on the slide catch lever's post that runs through the barrel and slide, I would get a failure to go fully into battery about every fifth round. I sent it back to Robert to fit, but it still didn't work 100%, still had a noticeable grinding feel as the slide travelled its last 1/8" back into battery. Didn't want to have pay for postage *again* to Robert to get it done right, so I took it to a local gunsmith who polished it up internally. It functions 100% now, but still has a slight grinding feel that last 1/16" of inch or so going back into battery.
Lesson? New wine into old wineskins. Putting a brand new barrel with sharp edges into a used SigPro may not result in perfect functioning right off the bat, smithing may need be done to get it to run right.
As far as the gun itself? Fantastic 'tackle box' box. That's not damning it with feigned praise, either. It's a great, functional, accurate alternative to your expensive Sig P226 Stainless Elite with wood grips that you don't wanna hork up by dragging it around everywhere.
It's like having an older daily driver hotrod, like say a '99 Firebird Formula, that runs like a banshee, works every time, is tough as Hell, a lot of fun and easier on the mind when out in the wild doing your thing. You're not going to worry about a few rock chips or a door ding or two. But it helps keep your very nice 2015 Corvette Stingray ragtop in the garage and off parking lots away from careless, dumbass louts that'll run their crappy rice-boy Honda VTEC into your rear bumper when parking, or let their shopping carts roll into your door. You get to save the really nice piece to enjoy it on occasion, but have the older, less pricey understudy to use everyday without worry.
The SP2340 is accurate, tough, feels good with the correct size grips and requires no touch ups to your muscle memory if you have any experience with the Sig Classic P-Series pistols. Nothing to dislike here!

I appreciate the replies, unfortunately that Sig ia unobtainable; but I gor a SP2022 9mm instead.
