After waiting 3 weeks, picked up my new sig yesterday! Shot yesterday and today(a friend of mine got his today). Its a .357 sig and it shoots great! Was getting nervous about it considering some negatives about the guns lately, but all is good!
On sig forum I saw where there were different problems with quality of new guns and service there after. Just wasn't sure what I got myself into after I ordered it. Seemed to be more negative then positive which had me concerned.
Nary a problem with my SIGs for the last 13 years...no problem with service either.
That's good! I'm glad I decided on a sig, it is really nice. I rented different guns at the range to help make the decision. I bought a taurus 24/7 last year just by reading up on it. . . wish I had tried some out before i got one, but, it is what it is.
You can never go wrong with a quality firearm...although I'm predisposed towards SIG (I own 2 and want at least 2 more), it comes down to how it fits in your hand and comfort while shooting.
SIGS are classy autos, love that trigger huh?
A witty saying proves nothing.
229 is the one that's missing from my collection, but I've managed nicely with the Glock G23C. I've owned a P220 (sold it a couple years ago), and currently own a P226-40 and a P239-40. I've never had one issue with any of my SIGs (no FTF, or FTE).
They have all eaten EVERYTHING I've ever feed them without a problem, so I've never had a reason to call SIG - 10 years and counting.

I own 3 Sigs, the P229 in .357 Sig is my primary carry weapon....not a hiccup so far.

See I have to sustain the comments about the Sig P229 in 357Sig. On adverage, out of ten weapons turned in at the 10,000 round mark, only half return. In five years, I'm on my 3rd Sig. Cracked slides is the most common problem followed by pins that arnt suppose to come out comming out, without being messed with. Just something to keep in mind. Many work great, but Sig is not likely to make money on our bid, since their replacing the broken ones.

Wow....I've had about 15-16K rounds through my P226/9mm without a problem...smooth action, still driving tacks.....until it got stolen out of my apt while I was moving in.
Why the cracked slides? +P ammo??

Gad I feel awful My 229 in 357 Sig has at least 3 thousand rounds through it and it still works perfectly. I used it to stop a holdup last June. Good choice and great caliber.
Good choice in a handgun. I wish my P229 Elite in 9mm would show up soon. They're trickling out from Sig so it could be a little while. I'm guessing the M&P 340 that I ordered yesterday will beat it here.
