SIG 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.
