    Sig 245

    I know this gun is being replaced by Sig. What with? What improvements over the original?

    Does anyone out here own one? What sort of impressions do you have about it?

    I shot one years ago. I found the recoil to be snappy, which I don't usually say about a .45, and have never said about a Sig before.

    However, I am always open to re-evaluate something. Is this a smaller .45 worth looking into?

    Cool. Thanks.

    The new one looks like they might have improved things somewhat.

    The 220 Compact will be the replacement for the 245.

    Major differences include a milled stainless slide vs. the stamped carbon steel slide, a beavertail frame, and a redesigned magazine base plate to aide in a more comfortable three finger grip. If I were looking for a compact 45 this would be the one. I already have a 245 and find it very easy to shoot.

    Seems like a lot of the "new" ideas manufacturers come up with includes a shortened grip. That certainly could cause a snappy type recoil (not ususally attributed to .45 ACP). Don't know about this gun as I have not fired or even handled one. Only about $.01 1/2 cents worth.
