Sig Sauer's P227 is expected to be unveiled at SHOT Show 2013. So far, we know just a little about them.
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):
- 227-45-B – P227 with contrast sights
- 227-45-BSS – P227 with night sights
- 227R3-45-SAS2B – P227 SAS (Carry ? – waiting to verify) with Night
Sights – I don’t have dimensions on overall height, barrel length, or
mag capacity yet.
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
