    Arrow Sig P220 Compact or Springfield Ultra Compact?

    I'm looking to sell my Kahr CW-45 and purchase a Sig P220 Compact or Springfield Armory Ultra Compact.

    I've heard great things about both guns, but am leaning toward the Sig since I own a full size 9mm Sig already.

    I'm looking for your opinions on either or both of these .45 ACP handguns as a main CCW.

    Post Script: I'm considering the P220 Carry as well. I just like the looks of the Compact better.

    I Do know between the 2 sig there's not much difference in size but there is difference in accuracy the carry is not as accurate if I was to buy one I definetly would get the slightly larger 220 for the better accuracy.
    Between the Sig and the 1911 that's hard..........general preference here. The Sig is going to have the edge on being slightly more accurate right out of the box unless your talking a custom 1911,The 1911 is going to conceal slightly better and unless your 220 is a SAO your not going to have the manual safety or that sweet 1911 trigger that we all love so much... but if you already have a few 1911's and no SIGS then the decision is easy,you definetly need a SIg in the collection just so you know what there all about! Sig is a great Combat gun,there super accurate and reliable . good luck

    This is kind of like saying,"I want a large black dog and have narrowed it down to either a Rottweiler or Labrador." They look close but are not really the same thing.

    I would go with the Sig. I have both and do not like 1911s or any gun with a safety for concealed carry. The "short reset trigger" for the Sig will be an improvement on an already fine trigger.

    I have a similar dilemma. My next .45 will be a 1911 or a Sig 220. I just can’t decide which size 220. Too many options! At this point, the Sig gets my vote.

    I once had the P-220 Compact and it was a sweet gun to carry and shoot. Must have been stoned or something to let it go!

    I have come to the opinion that I'll not again personally CC any 1911 design with less than a 4" slide. The Springfield Ultra Compact is 3.5". So, between your choices, it's the SIG.

    +1 from personal experience and seeing NUMEROUS other chopped 1911's give their owners fits. My minimum is actually 5 inches just like the original. That SIG will run and run. It would be my choice hands down.

    I would say the Sig sir, but then again I'm admittedly biased.
