You would go for a 220 SAO over DA/SA? .45 or 10mm?I already have a P220 SAO Carry two tone, P220 SAO two tone, P220 SAO Dark Elite, P220 SAO Legion, P220 SAO Match and a P220 SAO Super Match. With what is currently available, the P220 SAO Legion would be my first choice.
I have several P226 DA/SAO P226, Having one manual of arms, in moving to a P220 .45 does the SAO P220 .45 have any advantage?Since the heading question was about .45 ACP, I limited it to that. I also have a P220 SAO Elite 10mm and a P220 SAO Legion in 10mm. As you can probably tell, the P220 SAO is my favorite in either caliber.
The only thing the P220 and 1911 share in common is caliber. There is no comparison between the two in terms of format and function. It’s beyond a stretch to call that an “evolution”…they are different animals.I think that the Sig P 220 is an evolutionary development from the 1911.
Both are fine weapons and it really depends on you! When I say that, I'm referring to which grip accommodates you best! If you have a smaller hand, you may have more difficulty getting a controlling grip on a P220. The 1911 platform has a more adaptable grip, for the most people.Which models would you find comparable ? And why?
