Oh wow, I wonder if I put the standard on there if it would be even better. I love the Large grip they sent me. Feels way better than the two it came with and looks better too IMO

Sig has two types of grips on the SP2022.

The stock grips are the "SigSauer" labeled ones, which are pre-installed on the weapon out of the box.( Using my own example for the shots )



Here's the same gun with the "SigPro" grips installed.These grips fit my hand much better than the original ones.




By the way, when I was shopping for this gun online I noticed a handful of Gunbroker auctions for factory two tone 2022s.

Edit:Found one here http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=288255778

Cool man thanks, but we were talking about the triggers I couldn't tell the difference between the regular and the short trigger, but the two grip that came with it before I received the large grip, I also couldn't tell the difference as far as size goes. As for the two tone, yeah I saw some online, but usually the 9mm and not the .40. But also, I bought this one new with factory night sights and a SIG factory laser for $429 local at Turners If I buy something online, the FFL here charges at least $75 and some places even more

This looks awesome! I have a 2022 in 9mm that i bought for my wife, and I plan on buying one in .40 and want to get the slide bead blasted on it. Do you plan on buying a steel guy rod for it as well? I wonder if sig will do the barrel as well.

I thought about it, but it is not necessary for me anymore. I polished my .40 barrel, but I like the looks of the black now, Even in the front the g rod and barrel look sweet in black. I did just received my 357SIG Barrel today that I am going to keep black. Its up to you but I like the black accents on it. My FNP has the all stainless barrel and g rod

Front


357SIG Barrel Black


.40CAL Polished Barrel


Here's How it Used to Look Black With Polished Barrel

The third grip for the 2022 doesn't come with them. You have to order them from SIG, but they are the best for me. They feel much better too. They are like $30, but they hooked me up because I bought a lemon. It's been great since I got it back though

Wow, that black barrel and grod is a great contrast to the slide. I might do that as well. Can't wait to buy a sp2022 in .40. I love the 9mm but the idea of being able to shoot .357sig as well is awsome. And the mags of the .40 are so much cheaper. Thanks for sharing all of the pics!

Where did you get it bead blasted at? I noticed you are in Orange County close to me. I have a Large Fixed blade I want bead blasted and maybe my P226R.
Thanks

I'm loving how many SIG enthusiasts are starting to customize the SP2022 especially since it is the most affordable pistol (the Mosquito not withstanding of course) in the SIG Sauer line-up.

Love the two tone look! What did you have to mask or disassemble to get that look?

How are those slides going to hold up over time after being exposed to body salts and moisture from handling or are they just safe queens?
