Mink, thanks again for that long ago purchase!
Much better looking guns when they nickled the
controls, not just the slide! At one time, you
could buy the nickle controls: but no idea if
you can now?
Well, lets just say ... my wife knows where the bug-out case is...
Here there is no failure, only varied degrees of success!
Now that's the way a 2 tone should look!
All this talk about "Sig Steel" and not much mention of the smallest offering! Here's my all stainless P238 HD (with nickel finish). I love the additional weight on this little guy as recoil is so greatly diminished. What about the rumors? Is a P938 in all steel going to make a showing?

Only steel Sigs for me. Two stainless steel and one with the alloy frame. One day may have to give the P365 a try just for the ease of carry.
gundog, I have a 365 and it is a nice light gun
with a good trigger; but if you get one, buy one
of recent manufacture, so all fixes have been
I was a die-hard SIGaholic...P226, P229, P239, P220. Then i picked up a G19, then a G30
Now I'm back with my new (to me) P245 as my EDC
Also picked up a P320 Carry...eyeballing a P365 or G48
We're still hear but probably not as vocal since tupperware framed pistols rule these days. Love all steel pistols, and if given the option to buy a handgun with a steel frame that is presently offered with only a polymer frame, I'd take the steel one every day of the week. That's just me though. Having said all this, my steel SIGs are: P210-2, P226SL, P229(this one's a 40 S&W) and lastly P232SL. Always wished SIG/SAUER had made all German P220 and P225 with steel frames. IIRC some SAO P220s were made but I like the conventional SA/DA set-up.

Full stainless, except the super match with black alloy frame. I also recently bought a 320sc and a 365. Great for carry, but can’t hang with the stainless.

They went the way of the dinosaur.
There are a few of us still alive: P220 9mm (Hawes import) and a new (relatively) 220 in .45 ACP.
To be honest, I spend a lot more time on the range with my 320 than with either of the above pistols.

pays the best interest
I’ve been asking that question for years. Hoping that it’s announced at next year’s SHOT (like several previous shows) but I have greater faith in Exeter producing more rainbow colored Sigs than something that makes sense.

Get off my lawn!!! Damn kids these days with your plastic pop guns.
Save the whales. Redeem them for valuable prizes...

go with the flow
I'm an old school guy. I have a few Glocks, and they excel at what they do, but I tend to view polymer guns as tools. Whereas, IMO the older metal frame guns are more appealing to enthusiasts because they have more character and "soul".
Heck, same goes for rifles. I would much rather spend a day at the range shooting old rifles with wood and blued steel than any of the modern variety.
My current nightstand pistol is a S&W 5906. These things get very little love. You can buy one all day long for around $350 in good condition and you'd be very hard pressed to find a better made pistol by any manufacturer. Of course, it's a tank at around 40 oz unloaded.
My only Sig pistol is a P226 stainless 9mm DA/SA. That's my typical daily carry gun.
|Leave the gun. |
Take the cannoli.
Cuz there’s nothing to talk about. Wicked accurate, wicked reliable, but kind of boring. Haven’t been the least bit tempted to look at a plastic Sig. HK has taken care of my plastic urges.
Here are a few more of the crew:
Top to bottom-
P220 9mm, old school P220 .45ACP (which I like better than the new one),
P-226, P-225 and P-230 (which is wearing P232 stocks).
|Cogito ergo sum|
I have eleven, none of the polymers.
All steel here, but maybe one day will procure a striker fired Sig.
I never said never. I’ve got a P6, P229, G26 and G19.
