    Best Full Size Sig

    I know I want a Sig. I have a p238 and I love it. I'm looking for something full size tho and am wondering if I have around a grand to spend, what is the Sig that you guys recommend the most. I already have several firearms, and I understand that there is no "real" best, and that it depends on what works well for me. I'm not talking about that, I just want to know your opinion. I was looking at the 226 Scorpion in 9. I am open to all calibers though. Thanks!

    Well, I'll throw my vote in for the P220, in particular I personally favor the SAO version. Good .45acp knockdown power with an outstanding trigger. I own 3, 2 full size and a compact. I carry one of them depends on the weather and my dress as to which one.

    Sig finally came out with one of my dream guns, a 226 SAO Elite.

    It's pretty boss! My 226 is one of my fav pistols only gripes I had with it was I really didn't care for the DA pull on it and the way I grip it I rarely the get last shot to hold open. I think that SAO elite pretty much gets rid of those two problems being SAO and i could ride the thumb safety like a 1911. Thanks for the heads up! Now how to come up with the funds by April?

    Amongst other things a manual safety.

    Sig US production was also non existant at the time, not sure where Beretta was regarding US made guns at the time but guns being made in the US was a part of the deal if I'm not mistaken.

    Take a look at the Sig SP2022 at a LGS. It has the best DA/SA trigger Sig has ever produced. They are around $400+ now. If you like it find it on-line, but go feel the trigger.

    I missed out on the voting I see. My suggestion was going to be a 5" 1911. It was to be funny but now it is kind of dumb to suggest since the guy all ready bought a gun.
