    468 bucks a pop.

    Not too bad, but not that great either.

    Did it say which Sig? 226 perhaps?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Finally no more Beretta jams! Sorry Beretta fans but Ive had too many of them jam when I was in service.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    The pistols are sigpro 2022's and they're going to the Columbian government, not U.S. troops. TACOM handles foreign military aide purchases. SIG has been working on this deal for more than two years.

    Dang it all to Heck. Why does Columbia get the combat pistols, and we get target pistols? I know the Beretta is good, but its not a combat grade pistol, and this is not anything against the caliber just the design.

    Having worked for both Beretta and SIG, and having shot literally hundreds of thousands of rounds through both companies' guns, I'd take a 92FS over a 2022 in a heartbeat. Make it a 92G and it wouldn't even require that long.

    Being a Sig guy, I got to agree with this. The SigPro's are good guns, but not quite up to the Sig classic standards. I actually really like the 92 series.

    It's probably the P228, military designation M11. It was adopted around the same time as the Beretta M9.

    The M11 is the issued sidearm of Army CID, Air Force OSI, NCIS, and some combat aircrews.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    See above.

    But... Either way, I don't think they make 228s any more.

    We should start seeing these pop up in Mexico shortly!

    EXETER, NH (April 28, 2009) SIG SAUER, Inc. announced today that it has secured a multi-year contract to provide pistols to the U.S. Army’s Materiel Command. The potential value for all quantities and the related customer support package is $306 million. The initial order of 55,890 units is to be released as the standard sidearm for the entire Colombian National Police force. Shipments are to begin immediately with a second release of 42,000 pistols to follow.

    A 229 chambered in 9mm does not a 288 make. Granted mostly, but not quite.

    SIXTO is correct, SIG does still produce P228s for certain specific military contracts. They're usually only sold to the commercial market as overruns which is why the model is not listed as a standard item in the commercial catalog.
