I've had a SIG P220 for almost 10 years. I'm a LEO and I needed the blued finish redone. Sent it to SIG it came back with issues. Forced to get a G22 and I just qualified with it. MAN I SHOULD HAVE SWITCHED EARLIER!!!!!!!!!!OF COURSE THE GUYS OVER IN THE SIG FORUM SAID IT WAS MY FAULT SIG SCREWED THE GUN UP!?!?!?!?!?!?!? GO FIGURE

Welcome to the world of Glock. I converted from Sigs to Glocks a long time ago. I once had an earlier P220 made in Germany and I just never warmed up to it. Lousy trigger, reliablity issues, terrible finish so needless to say it's long gone. I'm assuming your P220 served you well for 10 years or you wouldn't have kept it so long? What type of problems were you having? Weren't interested in giving the folks in Exeter a chance to make it right? Dont get me wrong, I think you did the right thing as I am partial to Glocks.

well the cheap blue finish was worn down on the slide...Sig told me 6 weeks to redo in nickel and it took 2 1/2 months.... they screwed up the thickness somehow because the ramp of the barrell was striking a part inside the frame when I got it back...I called them they said since it was an elective service that I could send the whole gun back to them and they would see IF they would fix it but the shipping cost would be on me and I would again be without my duty gun (the loaners at my PD don't have night sights) I want a lighter gun...and I like the Glock rails....the list goes on and on

My first try with a G19 was pitiful. Shyed away for a few years.

I went through my Hk phase, then tried Glock again. I think there is nothing better.

I get bored every so often and get a 1911, or wheel gun, or whatever, but justified only by wanting to cross train in other platforms. But I always go back to Glock.

It's Bush's fault. He works at Sig.

I carried a Sig P226 in 9mm for about 16 years. I hated it.

We're issued Glock 22's now.

Welcome to Glock World.

agencies should set standards then just let cops carry what they're comfortable with. You think getting stuck with a sig sucked? Imagine cops in agencies that issue SIGMA'S

My friend has a SIG P239 (40 S&W) he likes it but what frightened me was that it is his carry pistol and he says sometimes he'll even hit the target at the range! What's worse about SIGs is their mags are super overpriced.

Welcome to the world of Glocks! Low priced quality mags and AK-quality reliability.

We were all issued the Sig's. For back-up/off duty, they have standards for weapons we are allowed to carry.

I would still pay attention to your sidearm as much as before.

I don't baby my issue or personally owned weapons but I don't abuse them. My back-side and everyone's else depends on them.
