Would you like to see Sig make a double stack(Hi-Cap) 45acp?

This is a wishful thinking question and it's probably been mention before.
Would anyone here be interested in a double stack version of a Sig P220?

I don't see why Sig would not make a hi-cap version of the P220. They had to redesign the P245 to shorten it up(I know the slide was resigned/remachined, they can get way with using the existing frame and just trim a little off). I think Sig could get 12-14 rds in the new version.
Yes, I'm biased on this subject because I love "HiCap" guns but "Shot Placement" is always #1. I'm also biased because wide grip guns(double stack) feel better in my hand(that's strange even to me because I have small hands and stand only 5'3-4" tall). I think it would sell just because I believe the USA crowd appeals to the "bigger & more" factor/package and I think Sig can make history again by squeezing in a 'HiCap" 45acp model(P220 or something else) before Congress makes another HiCap restriction on US(tax payin/law abiding citizens).

Does anyone think there is a market(USA & worldwide) for the "HiCap/double stack" P220?

Would any of you existing P220 owners buy the 'Hi-Cap/double stack" version?

What kind of sales projection(#'s sold) do you think Sig want before even considering to make a "Limited" run?
What would happen if handgun enthusiast(club members, forum members & etc.) from all over the world to sign a petition to show interest in a "HiCap/double stack" 45acp made by Sig(everyone who would want it send Sig an e-mail, that would get their attention)?
Anyone think this could work? We have to start somewhere, we could get another piece of history(I believe a ban is coming back)!

the 220 is a fairly large gun. why make it larger.
the 245 might fare well as a double stack if they fixed the trigger stroke.
Yeah it is large, but I'll take both when/if they come out.
I think Sig has one of the best DA strokes on the market(smooth w/ no extra tension as it breaks). Just my 2cents!

I'd consider a GSR double stack. Outside of that I'm happy with my 229.

Truthfully, I don't see a whole lot of one. The fixation on the .45 is a US phenomenon and the domestic shooter is so fixated on the 1911 it's something that I don't see them bothering with.

Then again, I never thought they'd do a single action only with safety 220/226 - and won't be buying one regardless.

I love Sigs, but don't need another double column 45ACP. Mine beats all comers IMO. :wave:

Para P14-45>HK USP45>Glock 21>XD45>Witness 45

Heck.. my P12-45 holds the same capacity of the HK but with the same size as an Officer's 1911.

Moon,
Are you sure you don't want another double stack 45?
I think a double stack Sig 45acp would fit right in with your fine collection!!!
I'm with you on the size and cap of the P12, I have one also. I'm still amazed how Para pushes the envelope(P10, smallest Hi-Cap 45)!

Nah, only Sigs that make me weak-kneed are the X-5 & 226R tactical. I like the GSR, and have been thinking that a single stack 1911 would be a great gun just so my Paras know their heritage. :biggrin2:

Actually... there is another double stack 45 I want. It's the Para LDA Nite-Tac. :biggrin2:
