This polymer Sig weighs less than the aluminum framed 200-series. But not by a lot; maybe a couple of ounces. I am always flabbergasted at manufacturers who produce a polymer pistol and it ends up weighing near 30 ounces. But once I get past THAT, things turn brighter on the Sig SP2022 in TNP fact it was downright surprising to me how well this gun ran. It is the successor to the marginally successful Sig Pro 2340, SP2009 series and is better. Better doesn't mean perfect however as the earlier SP2022s, with some bad parts and sloppy QC from Sig US had reliability issues. Upon its reintroduction, Sig got smart and had the gun made in Germany from 2008 on and those models seem to be 100% with good reports from various users. The gun shown and tested here is a good example of that. After 100s of rounds, the internal extractor equipped 9mm 2022 ran like a champ (even with Blazer aluminum cased ammo) and also showed very impressive accuracy. It is easily capable of 2"-3" groups at 25 yds. Ergonomics are excellent with swappable grip panels (shown), great night sights, a decent trigger, squared and roomy trigger guard, standard Picatinny rail, perfect slide serrations, easily accessed slide release lever, and the ideal Sig grip angle. Take down is a snap (shown). I prefer the standard DA/SA Sig trigger for its speed, safety, and precision and the SP2022 happily includes it. Firepower in this SP2022 is an adequate 15 rds but you can run extended capacity MecGar mags for a bit more (recommended). The standout POU will be combat service pistol but some may press the 2022 into concealed carry roles. Though adopted in large numbers by some foreign agencies and smaller security establishments, the SP2022 as of yet does not yet enjoy the widespread fame, track record, and fan base of the other warrior pistols in the Sig line up. It's a stealth Sig. As such expect fewer accessories for the is gun. But you may not care when you see the price. Value is excellent for a gun that in TNP testing showed itself to be on par with its more expensive stablemates; around $425 or so for the night sight version. This German made SP2022 is a standout winner in the high value pistol game. ///////////////Likability Scale: 8.5 out of 10 (price considered)/////////Music licensed from J. Shaw
