    The SP2022, Could Be All The 9 You値l Ever Need


    The SP2022, Could Be All The 9 You’ll Ever Need

    To me, the P226 has a permanent place in the top tier of all 9mm autos—traditional DA/SA, DAO or single action. This is probably a bit of nostalgic bias on my part—the best 25-yard group (rested) I ever shot with any 9mm was with a P226. It was dead-reliable, fit my hand and proved easy to operate. Not as easy as a striker-fired pistol, but pretty easy. The controls—slide lock, magazine release and safety/hammer drop were all easily accessible. The only drawback? It was—and still is—on the pricey side.


    But the newer SP2022 costs considerably less (roughly half), and has garnered an excellent reputation among various European LE agencies—notably in France. The SP2022’s polymer frame also buys you 5 or 6 ounces less weight than a P226. The curb weight, unloaded, is 29 ounces.


    Not surprisingly, the pistol is also chambered in .40 S&W, a cartridge experiencing a precipitous decline in popularity over the last several years. I’ve heard explanations for this ranging from the “re-adoption” of the 9mm by major LE agencies to the burgeoning popularity of ultra-compact and micro-sized CCW autos in which a .40 simply generates an unacceptable level of recoil.





    Our test pistol came with a proprietary synthetic holster cut for
    OWB carry. Each SP2022 comes with an alternate set of smaller grips.











    Little big gun? The 3.9-inch SP2022 rates as a “compact” in
    company terminology, yet its 29-ounce weight makes it exceptionally
    comfortable to shoot.

    My favorite Sig. The trigger is better than my West German P228's.
