Score: 9.0 Amazing!!
I have used and owned one or another variation of Sig Sauer’s pistols for almost 25 years. During that time, I have never been disappointed by any of the pistols that I have had the pleasure to use. I purchased my Sig P220 in 2010. I’ve fired my pistol at local ranges, on my deer lease, and in local “bragging rights” competitions with my friends. The P220 has never failed me and I have come to appreciate the pistol to such a degree that I would stake the lives of my family and myself upon the knowledge that this pistol will work every time I pick it up. I know that we have all heard others talk about this or that pistol being better than all others. I’ll not say that here. I will tell you that my P220 stands shoulder to shoulder with the best pistols out there and I’ll defend that statement to the bitter end.
