I just sold my only 1911, and now find myself looking to replace it with another 45 that *isn't* a 1911. I'm considering some variant of a Sig P220, but would like to hear what else is out there that I should consider. I've handled an HK45, and while nice, it was a little too big for me.



Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice - pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

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

I have a Glock 21C, a Sig P220 compact and I gave my dad my P220 DAK.

Too help I guy out I bought his HK USP but I find it a little too big for my hands. I have always wanted to try the Compact version.

The one I play with the most is my stock S&W MP 45 full size. I enjoy shooting it and actually hit the target most of the time.

I do want to try one in Compact and I have been hunkering to try the FN.

Range and around the house HK MARK 23. For carry HK45 and HK45C. Like almost all 45s but those are my favs.

I still have a Ruger P97 and I agree, they're tanks!

USP hands down. The HK45 and M23 are also nice.

My vote goes to: P220. Closely followed by P227. In third place is P250 .45 Compact.


End of Earth: 2 Miles
Upper Peninsula: 4 Miles

Supposedly this would omit a Thompson 1927-A or a Kriss Vector?

I am kina partial for the P220 then...



My other Sig is a Steyr...

That's easy. The P220, my P227 is nice and my P245 and P220 Carry SAO and P220 SME are great but all can really be considered the same thing basically.

I also very much like my Glock G4 21, probably the softest shooting 45 I have. I enjoy my FN FNX 45 too, it just has a nasty cool factor.

My 1911 45s would be last on my list. I like them a lot, don't get me wrong, well enough to buy some but if I had to get rid of all my 45s but 1 I'd keep my old "Made in Germany" marked P220.
