SIG P-220 Elite 10MM

    SIG P-220 Elite in 10mm after a lot of shooting.

    After having spent a week at the SIG facilities back in June I really didn’t expect to see many new guns. Well I was wrong there were many more handguns than I expected.

    There were several pistols that caught my eye and the SIG P-220 Elite was one of them because it’s the new 10mm! This particular sample I shot is a stainless pistol in the “Elite” model which is single action.


    Sights: Tritium fixed

    Barrel: 5 inch match

    Grips: Rosewood with optional black steel grips

    Stainless steel slide

    Safety: Manual

    Capacity: 8 Rounds

    Price TBA


    Targets were steel 1/4 size silhouette placed at 15 yards. My first group was slow fire with all rounds touching. Recoil wasn’t as bad as I expected and I found it easy to get back on target slow fire. The second mag I fired as fast as possible and hit the target with all 8 rounds. The 10mm seems to just work well in the 220.

    From what the SIG range officer said you will also be able to purchase the match version in 10mm.

    So many times when we write an article on a new pistol several readers ask why no 10mm. Well here it is and it’s nice! For those who hunt with a handgun the 10mm will certainly do the job. For you 10mm fans this is one you need to take a look at.
