    Sig 220 Carry Finish

    I have decided to go with a Sig 220 for Home Defense as opposed to a Glock 21. I was suprised but Sig maintained a slim but consistent lead throughout. Now I have to sory my way the mryiad of Sig Pistols to determine which model I would like.

    I have narrowed it down to the following
    Sig 220 Carry Regular Model, cheapest but have lots of black guns
    Sig 220 Carry Elite Stainless, always like SS guns, most expemsove
    Sig 220 Carry Equinox, finish looks very cool but its hard to understand what it would look like in person.

    This is strictly a vote on the finish. I have decided that the 220 carry is the way to go for me but now I need help in determining which finish. Thanks.

    Black is beautiful! (And Stealthy too!)
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I agree but add a few SS trims here and there and whoala, you get the Equinox, stealthy and shiny!

    I love stainless but I really thin its gonna be the Equinox vs the regular Black

    PS - I would really love to See Pictures of any of the models in my poll but most importantly the Equinox. I've searched all over the internet and just cant seem to find any decent pictures of this model. I am having a hard time understanding exactly what it looks like. Please, if you have any pics of the Equinox, please submit them, they would be very helpful. Thanks!

    excellent choise. I voted stailess but black would be great as well. the equinox is a safe queen, a collectable, I dont think that finish is all that great for shooting, its just too reflective and could be distractive in some rare situations.
    For HD go with black or stainless, whichever you prefer.

    sigsauers website has some decent pics, if you want better ones, go to gunbroker.com and search for them, otherwise, google them and click on the images link on the top of the page.

    Almost want to ask, are you shooting it or looking at it? I think you'll find the black is just as good as the other choices, use the money saved for ammo or a good holster! If you want a great trigger, see if you can get it in SAO!

    Black - all the corrosion resistant benefits of stainless without the glitz. The picture that matters is the SIGHT picture.

    Equinox is the best finish in the business, but I wouldn't want to beat it up carrying it!
