View Full Version : PRO'S AND CON'S OF SIG P2022
02-21-2012, 6:23 PM
thinking of getting a P2022 and not sure why they are so much cheaper than the other Sigs? I have a P220R that I really like,even more so after the SRT was installed. So are they not up to par or what?

From what I hear they are very good guns. A lot of positive reviews about them all over the internet. I've actually fired one and it feels great to handle and shoot. I'd say the trigger is on par with the P series. I guess the only reason why they're so much cheaper than the classic P series Sigs is because it has a polymer frame.

I've had a SP2022 in 9mm for 6 years, no issues what so ever. It's a great gun and has a nice trigger. I am selling this gun soon, but not because its a bad gun. It just doesn't feel comfortable in my hands. My hands are small and it feels bulky to me. If it feels good in your hands there is no reason not to get it. Just my take on it.

This is true.
I have a German made 2022 - I don't if there's any difference between the German and American made ones.
Mine has been a great pistol - reliable and accurate.
Some of the Sig purists don't consider these "real Sigs". I don't know, maybe they're right.
But, IMO dollar-for-dollar the Sig Pros are one of the best deals out there.

I have one and it shoots straight. Hasn't had any issues, no fte or ftf. I bought it used from a calgunner and am very happy. Heck, I might even buy a second I love it so much.

Pro-its a Sig

I have it in the .40 and just love it. It feels great and I really like the trigger. I really have nothing negative I can say about it.
I carry one daily, because of the silky smooth trigger in both DA/SA, accuracy, reliability and build(like a tank). Take one a part and look at the frame and compare it to other polys, you'll see what I mean.

The SP2022 is a fantastic pistol. I have had the German made SP2022 and the current U.S. production SP2022 (w/ 1913 rails). Both chambered in 40 S&W. My German SP2022 (2009 production) had started to experience some frame issues after putting down 2000 rounds through her, which Sig Sauer fixed by replacing the entire pistol with the newer U.S. made ones (mine was made in 2011). It was my first pistol and having fallen in love with Glock and the 1911 platform, my SP2022 doesnt get the love she deserves. I took her out this past few weeks and I had problems thumbing the slide release lever. I understand that this was a training issue since I held a Glock or a 1911 with a high grip. This caused me to lock the slide after every other shot. It's an outstanding pistol...just not the system I seem to like anymore YMMV.

The SP2022 is one fine pistol. Have had mine for over a year and after 1k rounds fired not one problem. Extra mags are a bit spendy but other than no problems.

I bought one off a fellow Calgunner a couple years ago and it's still my go-to pistol. I absolutely love it and it will be my beater gun for a long time.

Had mine since 05, .40cal very accurate, nice trigger pull, put thousands of rounds downrange with it and zero problems.

I love mine. It has been extremely reliable. You can get mags from CDNN for around $15 each. They are identical to the factory mag. I can't tell which mags I got from CDNN and the mag that came with the gun.

thanks to everyone, sounds like a lot of BANG for the buck, will be my next purchase
any out there for sale from a calgunner ?

I got a 2022 in 9mm back in November and really like it. It is accurate and reliable for me so far, definitely a good bang for the buck.

Im getting mine today and when I tried it out, it felt comfortable for me to hold. I have big hands and it shaped to me just right. I was debating on the SP2022 or the Glock 17. In my opinon and shooting, I was able to shoot better with the SP2022.
By the by, has anyone found some good deals on 9mm mags for the SP2022?

Good pistol. .40 and 9mm are excellent rounds so whatever you get it in its good stuff. According to the website they only offer .357 sig in the two tone variety which is sad since I'd love to have it in that caliber.
Its a P series in a poly frame for less money. Its a win win assuming you dont mind DA/SA. That and a XD .40 are my next ones.

I also bought it in the 40. and it is a very nice gun and you cant beat the price. It is very accurate and feels great in my hand.

Get it, there are so many sig 2022 threads on calguns asking pros and cons. There should be a sticky about it.

I had a 9mm that was really nice to shoot. Ultra reliable and accurate enough for me.
They are cheap because they are polymer framed and they are being mass produced for a very large govt contract.

Pros: its a Sig with a Glock price.

I had the same problem shooting my cousin's 2022 as I grip high on my Glocks as well. Recently I started developed the same problem on my Glocks as I've adjusted to a different style or grip (more accurate yet I'm thumbing the slide stop).
Love the gun and are considering picking one up in 9mm. Now just need to work on my thumbing the slide stop. =\
