Well, it so happens that I have always been a fan of the .45 ACP and I do own 1911s. However, many, many years ago, I was at the range with a good friend and he had with him a double action .45 which was rollmarked, "Browning BDA." I shot it, and was really impressed with it. so I asked him, "Hey, where can I get one?" He smiled and replied, "Just go get yourself a SIG P220 - it's the same gun." Well, I drove myself over to my favorite gun store the very next day, and walked out with this very gun, shown below.







This old West German-made gun is still wonderfully-tight and has held up quite well over the years.







I haven't bought a new SIG in eons, and only recently got back to some active shooting. I decided to check SIG out again and was amazed at the number of variations that they've come out with - something that diehard SIG fans have strongly criticized the company for doing. For better of worse, you can now get your P220 in any flavor that you can possibly want, besides stamped-steel black. Along the way, I acquired these other P220 variants.........



This is the P220 Match with the 5-inch barrel and adjustable rear sight. It actually has a tritium insert on the front sight.









Now, this is an interesting pair - an all-steel P220ST with a P220 Equinox. They almost have an "ebony and ivory" thing going!







The all-steel P220ST is a real *****-cat to shoot as all that weight goes a long way in reducing muzzle flip.







The Equinox features tritium night sights on the rear sight, and this green Tru-glo on the front, as well as the SIGARMS Custom Shop logo on the slide.







Cosmetically, they may look different from one another, but they're all superb shooters. And I really like them. :)

Some very nice looking guns you got there. I love Sig P220's - the only Sig I ever want to own in the future is a P220 Elite w/those sexy rosewood grips.
I would've bought one by now, but I buy too much other **** and always forget how much I want one.

I've never shot a p220, but I've shot a p226 in .40 several times. I must say, it is the smoothest .40 I've ever shot.



Some form of a Sig is on my "will own in the future" list.



Nice pics, thanks!

Yep. I picked up a pristine, used P220 last year as my carry gun to replace my 5" all-steel 1911 and love it. VERY accruate and easy to carry for extended periods. I don't have quite the "assortment" as you, but always enjoy the "gun porn." Thanks for sharing.

Big P220 fan. I really like my P220 single action only (SAO). But the M&P has it beat for lower bore axis and ergonomics plus comfort for long shooting sessions. That P220 is laser accurate though.

I'd like to get a Sig P220 (pref the carry) but they've been having such horrible QC problems I have been avoiding it. If I find an older one like a CPO I'd probably grab it up, especially if it's one of the earlier German made ones that aren't all aluminum like the new ones having issues. IF you go on Sigforum they have all kinds of problems over at Sig now.

It is the cover gun for the recent issue of American Handgunner.
