SIG_Sauer_P227_Nitron_45_ACPSIG Sauer has long produced the P220, a single-stack .45 ACP pistol. With so many companies producing high capacity 45s, SIG moved to fill that market with the new SIG P227. The P227 is chambered in .45, but features a 10 round double stack magazine. Even with the double stack magazine, the feel is much the same as the P226.  For those in duty roles who need more ammo, a 14 round extended magazine is also available.

SIG has 3 models available in the P227. The Nitron model pictured above sports a 4.4 inch barrel. The Carry and Carry SAS both feature a 3.9 inch barrel. The P227 Carry still sports the railed frame, while the SAS does not. The SAS further differentiates itself with the SIG anti-snag treatment to round the edges, as well as the short reset trigger.

For those who love the SIG build and design, but are looking for something with more power and capacity, the SIG P227 may be just the ticket.

    Although the p 227 looks really cool and I have owned both a p226 & p220, my considered opinion is that the Glock 30s can’t be beat. It doesn’t have any hand operated safties, unless the trigger is included, and it’s every bit as reliable and accurate. The .45 ACP has long been considered the best compromise between controllability and stopping power. Some individuals still insist that the 9mm or .40 S&W will do just as well. Tell that to the contractors and protection personnel the world over. Some few years ago my co-worker and myself were confronted with a roomful of Jihadists with AK’s. We were in Falujah at the time. Of the two idiots who picked up their weapons and tried to use them, I dropped my target with 2 well placed shots to the upper torso. I had my trusty 30s in a Blackhawk inside-the-pants holster right next to my “hydraulics.” I was able to quickly get that little Glock into action whereas my poor co-worker took a full 4 or 5 seconds. She also had to fire 8 rounds from her Beretta 92s before that stinking Jihadist stopped moving. And make no mistake, they do stink! Kudos to Gaston!

      I just wanted a bit of clarification from Madison McDonald, you stated you were running and gunning the mean streets of Fallujah with a glock 30s a few years ago. Were you part of the elite glock beta tester unit? The 30s wasn’t released until 2013.
