Does anyone here have any experience with this firearm, good or bad? Asking due to the fact I seem really attracted to one near by. Being a six round mag are these mags hard to come by?

The P245 uses the same mags, they are readily available. No downside tothe weapon, other than limited capacity. However, you can use the standard P220 8 and 10 round mags in the Compact/245.

I have owned two, and love them!
For many, they are too heavy, limited capacity, and outdated DA/SA trigger system......

but for me, I love Sig pistols for their amazing triggers, and with the new short reset triggers, the P-series of pistols are top notch!

I love mine! It is a great pistol. If you bought one, you will not be disappointed. As far as magazines are concerned, I bought three extras from ebay (the Sig mags with blister pack on cardboard, 6-round capacity). There always seems to be plenty available there. Mine came from Reeds Outdoor Outfitters in Walker, MN.
I'd have to say the P220 Compact SAS Gen 2 has been as reliable as one could ask. Can't speak to the SA/DA qualms (if there are any...carry or otherwise), as it's really not an issue, IMO. Plus, let's face it, it's a good lookin' weapon. :D

Why would DA/SA be considered outdated. I think it's the safest way to carry a semi and so do many more. The beretta Storms, FNX's and many others use this system. I am sold on it fir a carry weapon.

I know, but striker-fired pistols with DA only, or SA only, or.....whatever they consider those triggers, seem to be all the rage!

I own and shoot my P-220 compact.
Mine was made in March 2010.
It is single action only with a manual safety just like any 45 auto.
I carry it "cocked and locked" as it was designed for.
It has an "extended beaver tail".
It came in a Big blue plastic carry box.
It is made for off-duty carry, and is heavy compared to lesser size calibers, or poodle shooter calibers.
I love this firearm.
The recoil is comfortable, but I'm an old retired LEO.
The magazine holds 6 and one in the chamber = 7 rounds.
Larger magazines fit A+ if you want to use them.
7 shots are available very quickly.
When wearing shorts, Tshirt and out shopping, I feel very safe in the parking lot.
But that's me. 24/7/365 awareness of my surroundings is an acquired habit.

I have a 220 compact SAO and highly recommend the compact. I seem to prefer the smaller guns to full size.
You can use full size 220 magazines and have a very comfortable grip using x-grips.
I use them on my 1911s also. helps use my mags for double duty.

Those type of triggers may be the rage but have someone run 100 yards to get their adrenaline pumping and see which is safer. I own both but I carry a snubbie or if I need larger one of my Sigs.

I really like mine. The only negative I could think of would be the 6 + 1 round standard capacity. Mags are easy to find & sell on ebay & in most gun shops in the $30-$40 range brand new. If it's priced right I would grab it.

There are veterans of WW II and each war after, to today, that used 1911s. I never really heard many that said they wanted a DA.

I have one and really like it. It is surprisingly accurate for a small 45. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.

Don't get me started on the SA vs. DA/SA debate. I own SIGs because I prefer one of those over the other.

Have one, good gun, like it better then the full sized 220s that I have a couple of, they seem too large and gangly for my taste. Only downside is the capacity, I end up carring an Ultra 1911 instead for the round count.

Had mine about 4 months and couldn't be happier with the way it shoots, carries, and feels. The only thing thats noticeable is the weight, but that becomes a no-factor as soon as your get a decent belt/holster. A purchase you won't regret.
