    Sig P220 S.A.O.

    Anyone have this gun? Im thinking of buying the P220, dual tone, Single action only. I really dont like how stiff the saftey is on all the models ive handled, Im sure it will loosen up. but I would like to hear it from an owner before i purchase the gun.

    I had one for a while, the safety will loosen up, when I first got mine home I took it apart and found a lot of grease in there, I removed that and polished it a bit, coated with oil when done and it was significantly better, it will also get smoother with use.

    ETA:

    Forgot the mandatory pics...

    Not really, I think the safety needs to be a little larger and the trigger pull is a little long for a SAO gun. I bought it trying to fix a problem that didn't exist IE I was looking to get away from the 1911 family of guns, but the SAO didn't do it for me. IMHO the 1911 is still king of SAO .45s.

    The gun was fantastic. I carried it in a VersaMax II and has no issues with concealment. It shot wonderfully, fed everything I threw at it, it was a very nice gun, just not what I wanted. I ended up going to the double stack 9mm in the form of a FN Hi Power and a Springfield XDM.

    Also,

    For what it's worth, if Sig would ever make a standard sized 226 in SAO (other than the master shop Sig 226 X5 Short MSRP of around $3K) I'd be on it like white on rice in a snow storm.

    You're quite welcome. Also, be advised that unless it's been changed recently the SAO doesn't come with a SAO Specific users manual, just the regular 220 manual, I seem to remember that I found more detailed SAO specific field strip instructions on the Sig forum, but can't remember for sure. Looking at the Sig website I don't see an updated manual.

    I've got a P-220R Carry SAO and I love it. It's been 100% reliable through many hundreds of rounds.

    A Desantis scorpion IWB... its a hard shell and keeps its form. I'll be looking for a belt rig soon. Any P220 rail open end rig will work.
