    Hello. Unless something changes, I like it as well as my older DA/SA P220, although the latter has a crisper single-action trigger-pull. I am hopeful that as the newer gun is shot more, it will smooth up a bit. We'll see and if anything very good or very bad pops up, I will post it.

    Best and good shooting.

    Hi Stephen;

    Great report! The P220 stays in the back of my mind as a worthy pistol to acquire. I once got to try one out for some weeks and found it shot very well for me.

    I think I would prefer the milled slide rather than the folding slide. Is there an easy way to ascertain the difference when perusing them on internet gun auctions?

    Hello. You can see the pinned solid breechblock from the top of the slide. That is the only way I know of to tell the difference in photos.

    Best.

    Type 3 (double feed aka failure to extract). I know they're rare, but I have had them happen to me (M9s) and it's a useful tool for your tactical toolbox.
