New SIG P220R Compact

Sig Sauer is now producing an “R” model of their .45 ACP chambered SIG P220 Compact pistol. The P220R Compact does away with the beaver tail, reducing the frame length by 0.5″, and adds an accessory rail.

SIG P220R Compact (Two Tone model).

SIG lists two models, a blued model and two-tone model, although no price is given for the two-tone which I suspect means it is not yet able to be purchased.

  • Wow, good article Steve but in my opinion the price point is too high, the number of available rounds too low and the design doesn’t seem to make it as compact as it competitors. I’d just go with an XD or Glock and be done with it.

    I wish that sig would already make a steel framed hi-cap .45.

    .45 reliability (don’t worry, I love 9mm too) in hi-capacity magazines, with Sig quality : close from perfection.

  • .45. Because it’s silly to have to shoot them twice.
