I have a Sig P226 .40 caliber that I've had for about 7-8 years. I added the correct Hogue grip, and it is has the best feeling grip of any pistol I have, or have ever had. I was thinking about picking up Sig P220 .45 caliber and adding the same Hogue grip. Is the grip the same size on both pistols.....or does the 220 have a thicker grip like Glocks when you jump from .40 to .45 caliber. I know I can go to a gun store and check, but was just curious to know before I started looking in fun stores.

The 220 actually is thinner than the 226 grip, because the 220 is a single stack design.

The 227 is a "almost double stack" .45 and is said to be somwhat comparable to the 226 thickness, but I believe it is still a bit thicker.  Doubt the grips are cross compatible there either.

To answer the question...Yes the P220 has a different size grip then a 229 or 226. If you want rubber grips, Hogue makes them for a P220. I have a couple of P226s and have the Hogue grips on all of them. I wanted a P220 but I did not like the size of the grip or the way it felt so I never bought one. I never tried a P220 with the Hogue grips on it so not sure if that would change my opinion or not about the P220.

The New P227 .45 has the same size grip as the P226 in .40 but Hogue does not make a rubber grip for the P227. In theory the 226 grips should fit the 227 but that's a theory. I have read the P227 does not have screw holes for changing grips but have not confirmed this yet for sure.

The P227 will be the next hand gun I buy.

That actually helps. I wasn't even aware there was a P227. But if the grip is a closer to the 220 and the magazine capacity is a bit higher, then that's probably the better model for me to look at. Thanks.......

Sounds like I'm gonna have to get into the fun store and try them out. I'll look into the availability of Hogue grips for the 227.

Just to be clear with what I meant about the P220 grips. I do not know the measurement break down difference between the 226 and the 220.

I like the size of the 226 in my hand. The 220 I find to feel bigger in my hand. Enough size difference that I never bought a 220 because of the grip size and I did not like the difference.

220 grip is longer front to back, and thinner.

226 is wider width and not as long as the 220 is front to back

I think the 227 without grips is also longer than the 226 to fit the 34 cartridge but not by much.
