    Brand New Sig P220 Carry "Equinox"

    I just picked up this:

    <img src="http://render2.snapfish.com/render2/is=Yup6aQQ%7C%3Dup6%3DzqH%3AxxqUD7qRUrKxzX7BHpUUKx gXP0l%3F87KR6xqpxQQJPxeoaxPoJxv8uOc5xQQQoannJaeaeo qpfVtB%3F*KUp7BHSHqqy7XH6gXP0l%7CRup6lQQ%7C/of=50,590,442" alt="" />

    My picture does not really do it justice but man what a sweet gun, both ooks and shooting.

    I have only ever fired a Sig Pro before as my Sig pistol experience. I traded my Beretta PX4 Storm and my Springfield XD-45 for this gun...and while I lost a little $$$ in the deal I could't be happier.

    My fist time out and about 50 practice rounds in I could put all 8 rounds in a ragged hole you could cover with a quarter at 15-20 feet.

    What a shooter...for anyone who has never tried a Sig, don't start now or you might have less money in your wallet!!!

    Any holster suggestions, she needs somthing befitting her royalty...OWB or shoulder holster, paddles are cool too...any suggestions?

    -Rob

    P.s. Of someone wans to help me out posintg the pic at the link above I would be most appreciative...or shoot me a link on how to do it...thanks so much!!

    Try copying the img file once again in the URL box. I tried with the img file on your post , but it reads invalid file.

    this is a generic photo of the Sig 220 Equinox:


    Basically, you can use a photo hosting site like photobucket.com to upload the photo. Once the photo is up, find the address that will allow you to post it. the address will look something like [img]this_is_rifleming's_sig_photo.jpg[/img]
    Once you have the address you are good to go, just remember you start off with [img] and end with [/img].
    Also, if you need to get the url from a photo, you can right click over it, go to properites, and get it from there.

    Can't go wrong with the SIG, you lucky dog!
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    I really like the two-tone of the Equinox. I've come rather late in the game when it comes to Sigs. In my 10 years of shooting firearms, I shot my first Sig a little over a month ago. For some reason I avoided them, mainly because of my own prejudices. I've always thought they were guns "for people that wanted to be Navy Seals or Air Martials." I thought that way, until I ACTUALLY shot one. What a Sweeeeeettttt gun!!! I love the way it indexes, and the grip angle is just like the 1911. I can tell you right off the bat, my next gun will be a Sig. I'm leaning towards the 229.

    I have the 226 ST as EDC but could happiliy live with that one

    Re pics - as a generalization, if the properties on a pic do not finish up with a valid image file extension such as JPG or GIF then it's unlikely it'll display even between ''img'' tags.

    One trick - another option - when looking at original use ''alt printscreen'' which should put a BMP image capture on clipboard. Then if you have an image app and can use ''paste special'' - you can import that screen grab and crop down to the image part you want. Then save it, not too huge and attach it with a post.

    I was looking at the 220 carry DAK in .45 in the new Combat carry mag, such a sweet looking pistol, to bad the barrel lenght makes it prohibited here. (All barrels less than 4" are apparently more evil than their longer cousins)

    Lets try this:



    I must say my experiences are simular. I used to think Sig's were un-immaginative dull boring pistols that yuppies liked overpaying for.

    Now mind you I am a wheelgun and 1911 fan so I have my idosuncracies, but when I went to buy a defensive pistol I choose tupperware, I had a Beretta PX4 Storm in 9mm for plinking and a XD-45 for serious social work. I am not busting on any polymer guns or the people who like them but man they had no soul...none, zip nadda.

    I traded both of those for this and I am so happy, fit and finnish are impeccable and I learned the only thing boring with a Sig is the reliability!

    I want their new STX 1911 and who knows what else. But I am now a confirmed Sig fan. You really do get what you pay for. I liked the other guns I had but I jst feel the ergonomics and asthetics are better with this beauty.

    The reason I originally took notice was for those beautiful wood grips, they fit my mishappen mits very well.

    I also really like the milled top strap and the TFO front sight:



    So holster suggestions?

    Beautiful gun!

    Does that come with a DAK trigger option?

    No DAK on the Equinox BUT of course for a fee Sig will convert it for you, I saw the prices on the website.

    Is the DAK nice as far as DAO goes?

    I don't mind DA/SA at all, I am no IPDA champ and I know there are training consideraions but if I cannot have SA I will take it.

    I think the Equinox is a wonderful combination of function and beauty! Congratulations on a great buy...

    I also love the SAS Sigs, for months I've had my eye on the 229 SAS in .357 SIG....maybe would bring me one...

    ....for a fee huh.....my agency is sending me to the armorer's course in 2007; maybe that conversion will be something they teach us.

    The DAK is one of the best DAO triggers I've felt. I prefer it to the HK LEM and Walther Quick Action. I like my Steyr's "DAO" trigger, but they are, IMHO, different DAO animals with the Steyr trigger replicating the Glock trigger.

    The DAK is, to me, more akin to a nicely done revolver DA trigger.

    When are you going to the Armorers course, I was planning to pay my own way there in the beginning of the year?

    If you end up in the same class as me you are free to piss through as much ammo on this beauty as you like.

    Hope to see you there!

    Not sure when I'm going to the course....my agency wants to first send me to the FLETC firearms instructor course...then SIGARMS and finally Remington for the 870 armorer's course.

    Are you an LEO rfleming? I ask because I thought that the armorer's course was for LEO/mil-types only, but I'm probably wrong.

    Anyhow, this is a nice gun! Now if SIGARMS would only bring back the P245 and "Equinox" and "DAK" it out.....I'd be a very happy hombre!
