    P220 Compact slim grips

    I'm looking for slim grips for my P220 compact. The only manufacturer (other than Sig) for P220 compact grips is Hogue. They're wood and actually marketed for the P245 which I believe will also fit. Does anyone know if these Hogues are thinner than the factory grips or know of any other source for P220 compac slim grips. Thanks

    I believe that the Hogue wood grips for the P220 are actually slightly thicker than the SIG factory grips.

    Not positive but, I believe that Hogue carries an Aluminum slim grip for the P220 Compact.

    You'll need to call Hogue. The last time I checked their website was a true P.I.T.A. to negotiate.

    I thought the grip length was shorter on the 245.

    Try here also. Marschalgrips.com
    Click on SIG SAUER P245/P220 COMPACT
    Some SIG grips in wood (in general) are quite difficult grips to fabricate due to the abundant amount of complicated inletting.

    I know that for the full size P220 there is only so much that you can thin the wood.
    The marschalgrips look thinner than the Hogue.

    I am actually trying to help you out while flying blind here since I do not own a compact - only a full size 220 that I do have HOGUE exotic wood grips on.

    Added note. Don't ever choose ROSEWOOD for any grips than have major/radical inletting done on one side.
    They will eventually stress warp even if the wood is fully seasoned.

    For a while ago I contacted SIG and they told me that the grip panels from the P245 SA/DA Compact also fit the P220 SA/DA Compact.

    Those are very nice grip panels! I wish they made them for the P220 Compact SAO too. I have aluminum panels on mine, and while they are pretty slim (for being a SIG) they are pretty heavy too.

    My P220 Compact came from factory with aluminum grip panels installed, but when I contacted SIG they told me they had aluminum and polymer panels in stock. Since the aluminum panels are slimmer than the polymer ones I decided to keep them. The P220 Compact SAO is a pretty nice pistol, but finding grip panels for it can be a real pain

    I called them for about 3 or 4 months ago. If you have a SA/DA it will be much easier for you to find grip panels for it. I called SIG several times, and two of the guys I spoke with did not even know that the P220 Compact SAO existed!

    Mine was DA/SA til I switched it over to DAK. If I can find some cut out for the decocking lever they'll work just fine.

    I do not think you will have any problems finding grip panels, just give them a call. The aluminum grips are pretty slim (for being for a SIG), but be aware that they weight 2.8 oz. You will also need new screws because the panels are slimmer. Good luck
