Haven't handled a Pro but I shoot a P226 and it's a exceptional firearm. I'm sure the Pro is every bit as good. I was leaning on getting one but got a great deal on the 226. I'm sure you won't be disapointed and Sig's are very good and dependable firearms.

My father-in-law has one in .40 S&W. It was easy for me to shoot, no trouble putting them where I wanted 'em.

The only "problem" he had with the gun was the trigger not always "resetting". He took it back to where he bought it, they could find nothing wrong. Talked to Sigarms, seems my father-in-law didn't lubricate the slide rails sufficiently, the gun's so tight. After lubricating properly, no more problems. ;)

Hello Harbour,

"Can't stand my Glock"... familiar word to me: life is just to short to shoot Glocks.

Had the opportunity to shoot a few mags through a SIG Pro: the gun works fine but I wouldn't put it in the same class as the P 22x serie.

Fact is that the French police ordered a variant of the SIG Pro - more than 200'000 for replacing Berettas and MASs - after testing it against HK P10 (another variant of the USP Compact) and Walther P99... you take it your way!

For me, in the SIG Sauer line, the P225 (compact single stack) and P228 (compact double stack) are kings. I would wait till I find one if I didn't already have a Walther P5 that I put in the very upper class, design-, accuracy-, quality- and finish-wise.

Thanks for the info guys :) I'm going to check one out tommorow to see how it fits.

My new Argentine Detective has me spoiled though. especialy after I added the new Hogue rubber wraparounds.

Having shot several sig pro's, and being a factory trained armorer for them, I can provide several insigghts.

Generally, the SP 2009/2340/2022 are very reliable and have relatively smooth axctions compared to the competitors. They are accurate and lightweight and are very corrosion resistant. They also hold up well and have a fully supported chamber in all calibers (IMO a big advantage over the glock 22 and 31). There are several things you should know however:

1 the trigger pivot pin is held in place by a plastic snapper sleeve which is a single use part, so, if you detail strip the frame, you will need one of these on hand. They only cost a few cents each, but if you are out it can be annoying

2: some folks find removal of the slidestop hard on new guns. they loosen up over time, but initially ity is pretty tight.

3: It is virtually impossible to get someone to do a trigger job on the weapon (except the factory custom shop) the trigger box is a modular unit which is very very dificult to break down, and I know of nobody outside of exeter who will try.

I would recommend is highly, it will serve you well and I have never seen one malfunction of the 20 or so we have in service in my agency.

Not a big fan of polymer framed pistols. I can tell you though that the SIG Pro is a nice gun, very good ergonomics for me. Sold my Glock 23 this past fall. If I ever change my mind and buy a polymer framed gun again it will be a SIG Pro

I have a Sig Pro 2340 357 Sig. It is a fine pistol that works perfectly.
They don't seem to be making the Sig P225 anymore. It looks like
they are steering people to their P239 series.
My 2340 came from CDDN for $399 with five factory mags...

John!
