I have that one. My little,UID Label slipped off after a couple cleanings. I saved it, but I like it better without the label.Thanks everyone for the feedback. I went with the P226 MK25. It seems like it can fill all roles since I don’t need for any specific one and the engineering to make it more moisture resistant and durable was appealing since I live in Atlanta, which is incredibly humid.
I started . . P229 . . then P220 . . . Then P266 . .my vote on Poll . P229 Of Course I remember the 224 (?) good OR bad . . I've got two ..40 cal with Belly Pack for carry ! Fat old Man , , white sock and tennis shoes . . . Shoots fine for me after Sig fixed both of them . . Got to have Extended 12 rd Grip !!!!They all are must owns. I think a better way to look at it is the order you work toward getting them. P226, followed by p229, followed by p220. That would be my pick. I personally think the p226 is the perfect firearm.

I carry a P224 357sig in the summer with an extended mag in the pocket. The Signess does not stop with the 3 the OP mentioned lol.I started . . P229 . . then P220 . . . Then P266 . .my vote on Poll .

Same here. I also find that the P220 carries better than the P226 and P229. Although a big gun, it’s slim and feels good carrying. Although on paper the P229 seems like the better carry gun, I can’t wait to take it off after a full day of carry. It’s a chunky monkey. Not so the P220. The P226 is a great gun also but always seemed to me to be overbuilt for a 9mm. I found a .357 top end for it and now it seems just right.I also have all three. But, a P220 (45 ACP) hits a soft spot with me. Steel frame or alloy, full size or carry, I think they’re great pistols!
There are steel-framed variants for the P229 and P226 in 9/40/357, and P220 in 45/10, but they're very hard to come by these days. Therefore, snag the first one you see if you feel right about it. They're all great shooters. As for the metal alloy frames, I'd get the classic P226 in 9mm (my pick is the Mk25).I am debating on which pistol to get. It’s not really meant for any specific role, as I have a P365XL, PDP 4.5 and a Q5 Match to fill various roles. I want a steel frame, hammer fire pistol to have something outside of polymer striker fire pistols. I plan on settling down on buying so this is my “last buy” (which I know it’s not). Of the 3, which is really the “must own”?
File a warranty claim with Sig! I would love to hear their reaction. Did it come off after a lot of carry or as a safe queen? I bought mine a few months ago and haven’t even fired it yet so label still in tact but wouldn’t expect it to hold up under ongoing use.I have that one.
