That is beautiful. I've got to say every Sig factory re-blue I have seen has turned out great. Positively the way to go if you don'y want a specialized finish.

Yes, I did check to see if they had the Hogue markings on the backside of the grips and there's nothing at all. That surprised me and is why I'm not certain. They're either Hogue or very good copies.

I know if Sig would do a production run of 220s' in 38 Super they would all sell. Maybe Bruce could get Sig interested in this.

From your lips to God's ear. I'm worried that the words "inventory" and "warehousing" still send them into a blind panic, though.

I don't think your grips are Hogues or copies of them. They look like mine (not the best pic to show grips), and IIRC they came from Brownells several years ago. Don't recall the brand, but may still have the info somewhere, will take a look.

Someone posted here on the forum that they were in stock, inexpensive, and gave contact info. Myself and many others took advantage of it...

^^^Are those Siles? I could've sworn that someone here mentioned those were OEM on 220s for a while.

They were, but they don't look like the Siles I have, the checkering matches the Hogue panels so I'm really surprised they aren't marked as such.

I'm pretty sure these are Siles, and the checkering, particularly on the left side is a lot different. JC P220 9mm hard chrome by APW.

After comparing the grips with the Hogues and all your photos of Siles, I’ve concluded they’re neither. If you look at the cutout around the decocker, it’s quite different. It exposes a lot more of the lever than the Hogue or Siles. Also, looks like the Siles have a textured backstrap and these are smooth. I believe they’re probably knock-offs that are made in Thailand. In the end, it doesn’t really matter, as I’ve changed them for Hogue G10’s. Had to go with the checkered, as the European Piranhas have been discontinued (??). Although the wood looks nice, I didn’t like the smooth backstrap. Plus, when I released the slide with slide stop lever, it would pinch my thumb. Not a big deal, but it was a distraction. Never had that happen with any of the G10’s.

Here’s what she looks like now:

I like wood, but that looks pretty dang sharp, too. I have a black checkered set on a JJ EU, and they do a nice job of filling the hand without really adding any bulk to the pistol.
