Default Factory Sig replacement grips - P220 SLIM

Anyone has experience with it?
I do not like wrap around Hogue grip on my SIG 220R.

15$ versus 90$!

My P220 Stainless came with slim grips,
and I ordered another set from Topgun Supply
for my Sig P220 Combat.

I tried some Hogues but my accuracy was not as good
as with the slim grips.

The factory slim grips fit better for my medium size hands.

For me, the P220 is a better pistol with the slim grips, but I feel that way about most handguns.

Cheap is not paramount, but I see no point in spending extra 100$ on a police trade in.

I have a factory slim grip with slip on tube. It fits my hand perfectly.

I replaced the original grips on my P220 with the slim grips. The slim grips are a little more gritty compared to the original ones. I shoot MUCH better with them.

Hope you like them! Topgunsupply is a great place to buy stuff from too. Their shipping prices are a bit steep if you're only ordering a few small things, but their speed and customer service rocks.

The slim grips are not only...uh...slimmer, but they are also give a shorter reach from the top curve of the backstrap to the trigger, plus the bottom "hump" is not as pronounced (the part that presses into the fleshy part of the base of your hand).

I just got my p220 slim grips from top gun and cant tell any difference from the factory ones that came with my p220 carry. Does anyone know if the p220 carry already comes with slim grips? Or how can I tell the difference? They look identical from every angle and feel the same. Is there any marking designating 'slim' on the inside?

Sorry to revive this thread but I recently purchased the P220 SLIM grips and I'm having trouble with the factory flat head screws being too long and intruding into the magwell.

Did you guys purchase the screw set as well like the one that Sig sells on their website?

http://sigsauer.com/SigStore/ShowPro...5&productid=40

I purchased this gun PPT and it came with Hogue wrap arounds that use the hex screws. I tested both the OEM flathead and the hex and both are binding. Am I supposed to have washers?

I am almost embarrased to say this, But i got the Hogue extreme G10's. they were 130 dollars and honestly transformed my pistol into the slimest, nicest feeling gun i have ever felt. The grip is solid, i can hold onto it with vegetable oil on my hands.

The reach to the trigger is less, and makes my sig feel slimmer than my XD40. I will put them on every sig i get in the future. (4 of my friends also purchased these after feeling mine.) the hogue wrap around are nice, but unless you have massive man hands, the g10s are the slimmest available and make a thumbs high hold an amazing feel!

Got it. I decided just to purchase new grip screws and grip screw washers from Top Gun Supply.
