Sig P227 Coming!

November 9th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

This one came as quite a curve ball!

I have received some pretty reliable information that Sig Sauer is going to be rolling out a new model called the P227 as early as SHOT Show 2013 (January).

The P227 is going to be a .45 ACP double stack pistol with overall dimensions very close to the P226. The thickness of the grip will be pretty much identical to a P226 with 2 piece grips except it will be an enhanced ergonomic grip.

The P227 will ship with a 10rd flush fit magazine and there will be a 14rd extended length mag as well.

The P227 will accept standard P220 5″, 4.4″, and 3.9″ slides. If you have a P220 Match Stainless Elite or a Super Match, those slides should work too. The pistol will fit in standard P220 and P226 holsters.

Overall, the P227 is most similar in size to a P226 which is why it follows in part numbers (instead of calling it a P221).

The initial models will probably be (this is not set in stone but should be pretty close):

  • 227R-45-B – P227 with contrast sights – 4.4″ barrel, 10rd
  • 227R-45-BSS – P227 with night sights – 4.4″ barrel, 10rd
  • 227R3-45-SAS2B  – P227 Carry SAS with Night Sights – 3.9″ barrel, 10rd

Note that it is standard for there to be an R in the part number to indicate that the model has an accessory rail. I’m waiting to confirm whether or not the above part numbers are correct or should indeed have the R. Confirmed – the part numbers do have the R – updated.

Sig has been aggressively expanding the product line in both pistols and rifles and nearly every new model has been quite successful. A double stack .45 will compete well the .45 ACP  XDM’s, M&P’s, and FNP45 pistols.

No photos are available as of this post but I will share any information here as it becomes available.

    This is exciting news. Been wanting a 220 but might have to wait a bit longer!

    A P227 10mm would find a home with me. A 38 super as well.

    A 10mm would be nice.

    However, If they’d make the P227 as a two-tone Carry Elite with Rosewood grips, SAO and without a rail, I’d be at the factory waiting for the first production one to come off the line. : )

    @bill
    With that kind of attitude we would still be using pointed sticks to hunt with.

    Change can be good and no one is forcing you to buy any firearm you do not want to own.

    I will buy the SIG P227 if the price isn’t to high.

    A 10MM SIG would be an absolute purchase from me.The Ten-Bren has come come and gone and Vltor is clearly a non-event.

    Why? 10mm is an extremely unpopular round. It might be a best seller with the 10mm niche, but still not worth the R&D to produce it.

    The 10mm is on a steady come back, If more manufactures other than Glock made them ,I believe they would sell even more. R&D ? if they produce a 40 S&W then they are 3/4 of the way there. trust me, if you have never shot or owned a 10mm you missing out, they are highly efficient and powerful rounds. I was giving a demonstration last month by punching holes in steel with mine.

    If Smith&Wesson and the rest of the gang ramps up ,you see a rise in popularity, gun owners always need something new………right.

    I am going to purchase the P227 Nitron full sized. The difference in carry is 1.5 oz less and about 3/4″ shorter in length. Since this is a big bore gonna keep to a big version of this gun. Excited to see the new addition Sig!

    A 10mm Sig will probably never be made, it is more than just making the 226 or 227 in 10mm. It is a longer cartridge, therefore you have to extend the frame. Also the .357 sig round imo is better. yah the 10mm is crazy in gel tests and all, but all i need is a bullet that is quick and very accurate and it is shootable, that to me is the .357 sig. Also I have shot both side by side and the 10mm at night will make you go blind versus the .357 sig. There is a reason the FBI decided that caliber was a no go, I agree there are applications, but I do not see it as a defensive round against people.
