Coolness factor...
glocks are a dime a dozen...
so maybe a glock 20 and a 21 instead of the sig?....Hmmmmmm

I would choose due to full metal frame and feel. Also, I am a huge fan of single action apposed to the "safe-action" of the Glock. That's why I traded my Glock and stuck with my 1911. Good luck with your decision! -Ben

This is about as vague a question as you can ask. What's the intended use? Do you own any other guns? If so, what trigger platform? All this will get different answers from people except me. Go with the Glock.

Have both, carried both..............G30SF

I had the Glock 30 and the 30 sf, both were very good guns. I like the 1911 more though.

I'd go for the Sig. About the only Glock at this point I might considering owning is a G26.

I don't like .45's out of short barrels (G30SF) so I'd much prefer the many options available in 9mm or .40. If Glock and .45, G21SF. If I needed something more compact G19/G23/G26/G27.

I'm familiar with SIG Sauers in general but not too familiar with their SAO's. Their SAO mechanism is relatively new and I simply have more confidence in their traditional DA/SA triggers. In general I like to stick with the tried and true with any particular model.

Decide which trigger you prefer for yourself and go from there. That should be your starting point. The P220 is larger overall and the G30SF is slightly fatter overall.

Thanks for the feed back. Has anyone ever heard of a sig having a kaboom or catastrophic failure?

Love my G30SF!

It can happen with any gun and is caused by bad ammo. Glocks have an unsupported chamber (not a bad thing) which is partly why they're so reliable but partly why if they get a completely out of spec reload they could KB. Heck, 1911's can KB and when that happens you get steel shrapnel. Glocks (or any gun) are fine with factory ammo, but some people can overload a reload and thus cause a KB because the pressure is too high. Again, very rare considering the obscene number of Glocks in the world.

I had to use sand paper to get rid of finger grooves and a file to thin a trigger guard a bit (30SF).
