What can you fine gents tell me about the SigPro? Specifically the 9mm. I want to get one but wanted to see what others thought. My research has led me to believe that it's a killer dealer; low price for high quality. Is this correct? Thanks.

SigPro is a fine weapon.

not all that many polymer guns are available in both DAO and DA/SA. It's priced between the HK's, Beretta PX-4, and FN Fnp's, and is as good in quality as any.

I used to have a SIG Pro 2009 and it was a great gun. I sold it though. Regretting selling it.

2022 here and it has been 100% from day one! Fantastic gun!!!!

I have a 2009 9mm to save money at the range, and a 2022 .40 decked out for home defense.



Both great guns, highly recommended.

I've shot a friend's 9mm Pro (think it was a 2022, the newer style). Probably the most controllable 9x19mm that I've ever shot.

I was considering picking one up recently, but went with the classic P226 instead.

My wife has one and it's great to shoot. I regularly see used and cpo ones in the $400 range around here at the gun shows. It's roughly the same size as a 229.

I purchased a CPO sigpro SP2340 in 357 SIG a couple of years back. It came with three mags, night sights that are still very bright, documentation, and a lock. When I inspected the gun, I was surprised that it was used...the gun looked new. The price was great too....$370-something.

It's a great gun; I like it a bit better than my duty SIGARMS P229 in .40 S&W.

I have the P220, P226, and P229 and I love them all. The slide lock on the SigPro protrudes a little too much for my personal comfort, particularly in comparison to the other Sig models. If you use a high thumbs hold -IPSC style- you may find the slide lock lever quite sharp against the meaty part of the left thumb, assuming a right hand hold.
For this reason, coupled with the polymer frame, I personally consider the SigPros to be second tier Sigarms products. Although they are still engineered fairly well, and are comfortable for many shooters, those with discriminating taste will more than likely forego owning the SigPro.

Right now I'm looking at the SIGPRO 2022, along with the FNP, Beretta Storm, and HK 2000. I really want a railed, DA/SA 9mm for a house gun (with a laser/light combo), as well as at the range, that doesn't mind averaging 100-200 rounds weekly. I have a 1911 and SIG 229 SAS in .40, so I want a 9mm to "round out" the range bag. Are there any other good candidates in that $500-800 range?

There's always the glock 19 or 26 in 9mm.

So my decision is between the SigPro and the Springfield XD-9. What is the better choice for the money?

I traded my 40 cal XD sevice model tor a Sig 2022. The 2022 had a better fit and finish and a tighter lock up.

I've owned a 9mm Sig Pro SP2022 for about a year now. I have ZERO regrets! The only problems that I'd had was a few failures for the slide to lock back after the last round. Wouldn't you know it, it was operator error. I was riding the slide release with my thumb. After a minor adjustment to my grip, I was off and running. The DA trigger on my SP2022 is one of the best out of the box triggers that I've ever felt! The reset is pretty much the standard SIG reset. The SA trigger is the standard.

While I don't own an XD, I have shot one on a few occasions. I do believe it is a quality pistol, but I prefer my Sig Pro. The XD has a DAO trigger with quite a long reset. If you're a revolver shooter, then you may feel more comfortable with it. I generally shoot DA/SA autos, so I'm more inclined towards the Sig Pro DA/SA trigger group (although you could get a DAO trigger, but I am not familiar with it).

I can't really add anything else to what others have said but this: selling my 2340 is probably my only gun related regret.

Selling my SigPro 2022 was a big mistake. I'm getting another one.

I see on gunbroker.com there is a NEW sp2022 two tone/night sights/two mags/9mm for $400. This seems like a great deal to me. what do you guys think?
Link Posted: 10/5/2007 7:28:32 AM EST
I have 4 Sig's, one is a Sig Pro 2009. Also have a Springfield XD-9. Even after some trigger work and putting a short trigger on the Sig Pro, I myself still like the XD-9 better. Both are fine guns and both shoot well but I like the trigger on the XD-9 better and it seems to be made to fit my hand and is much easier to strip for cleaning. Just one opnion !

Jump on it. Seriously.

For a NIB 2-tone w/night sights, $400 is a killer deal. It might be an inexpensive new age polymer pistol, but it sure runs like a classic series Sig. At $400, it's priced to be more than a bargain.

+1

it was a factory reconditioned "demo" gun from the local sig shows... the thing was practically brand new... i paid like $350 for it... came in an LE marked hard case with interchangeable backstraps and 3 12rd magazines...
Link Posted: 10/5/2007 10:20:03 AM EST
It is the most accurate handgun I have.

I now shoot a 2022 (40cal). Used to shoot 2340. Unless you find an early 2340/2309, the decock lever's curve is shaped in the wrong direction. They fixed it on the 2022s. This is only a comfort issue, not a function issue. I much prefer the 2022, plus the large grip is stippled and you get a 1913 rail instead of the proprietary sig rail.
There were some other minor improvements to the internals as well, but both guns were rock solid reliable.

Some people don't like the polymer sigs but for many, the price is right and you get a sig. I stake my life on its performance and sleep well at night.

SigPRO is THE best polymer gun on the market!

Agreed, I own 9(P-series) Sigs and my 2340 is just as good as the P series in my opinion.

I have a 2340 and 11 magazines for it. I love it. The trigger is like no other.

The only gun I have that comes close to as nice of a trigger is my 70's vintage 357 magnum N-framed Smith but thats a different type of trigger but they are both very nice.

I am thinking about getting another 2340 and putting a 9mm barrel in it or getting the 9mm version of the sigpro.

The nifty thing is that if you get a 9mm barrel for the 40/357 sigpro, you can still use the same 40/357 mags with the 9mm conversion.

Surefire sells a conversion rail for the early sigpros like mine so that it makes the strange sigpro rail into a totally normal rail like all other tactical guns.

A lot of sig fans admit that the sigpro has a nicer DA trigger than the metal framed sig classic models.
