    Can you say sticker shock? O.K. I've pushed my eyeballs back in my head and wiped away the tears. I do like it. Very handsome piece. I might even take a look at one.

    Very close to the same size as Ruger SR40c, although slightly heavier. Overall I really like the dimensions. The price is crazy though, they are pricing it assuming demand is going to be really high, no way that gun (even a Sig) should cost the same as, or more than, its bigger brother.

    Still would be a nice fit in my collection I think.

    I'm a huge Sig fan as my handle suggests, but the MSRP of this gun is ridiculous. I fear Sig has lost its way, i.e. P250, P290 and now this.

    Does anyone here actually pay MSRP for a gun?

    If you want a gun in those dimensions and half the cost go with the CZ RAMI. It will accept the full size CZ 75 magazines if you want additional round count.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    No, but even a couple hundred less still seems kinda high to me for a compact.

Sigs, 1911's, and other higher cost firearms sell all day long here.
    you hit it right on the head, my friend. My local GS owner said that SIGs do well up north and in more affluent areas as
    money is not near the object it is in Mouseville where husband and wife are working two minimum wage jobs just to make ends meet. I could afford a SIG, but could never justify an $1,100 subcompact pistol when my Glocks and M&P's do the job just as well for 40% of the cost of a new SIG. I drive a Toyota, shop at Walmart, and have a very modest home. Owning a SIG would make me think I actually had money.

    Climate also has a lot to do with SIGs not selling in Orlando. When its 95 degrees every day for six months out of the year, gun owners want small and light.....and that does not describe many in the SIG lineup. Glock 19, G26 are about as large as I can go in the dead of the summer blast furnace.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    If the P224 accepts P229 magazines, that makes sense for Sig & Federal agencies and for me too, as p229 owner, the new P224 is the perfect gift for my wife!

    Yeah, it's an old thread, but I took a look recently since I thought it would be nice to have a BUG that takes 226 mags. Nice pistol, but big for a BUG, and even at LEO/Mil pricing it's steep (just shy of $800 with nightsights). For $100 more, I could pick up their TACOPS 1911 with 4 mags. Not that those two pistols have much more to do with each other besides their manufacturer, but I want the latter one more!

    Even if you're dying to buy one...I'd wait a year to get the 'kinks' out...
