I’ve only fired a few Sig Sauer pistols. In the back of my mind I think Sig guns have seemed like snobby weapons to me. MK 25 9mm as used by the Navy Seals for years and years? Don’t care. At least I haven’t cared.
Really I don’t know why I’ve steered clear of Sigs. I have nothing against them, or even the people who swear by them. For whatever reason they just haven’t been for me.
During our GunUp.com bloggers tour of the Sig Sauer booth at SHOT Show 2013 I got to spend some time hearing about and fondling the brand new Sig Sauer P227 .45 ACP pistol. It’s a classic style sig, which means DA/SA trigger, decocker, hammer driven AND a double stack magazine. Adam from Sig who gave us the rundown described it as a .45 caliber P226. And honestly it doesn’t feel much different at all. Their innovative E2 grip was slimmed to cut down on bulk and the way the palm swell contours to and lays in the web of your hand really feels spectacular.
