The P220® Carry Elite Stainless is an 8+1 capacity carry-sized pistol with a full-size frame. Chambered in .45ACP, the P220 Carry Elite Stainless features the new Short Reset Trigger or SRT. The new SRT was designed by SIG SAUER® to deliver the same great safety and smooth action of the SIG DA/SA with a comfortable reset 60% shorter than the standard DA/SA. This short reset provides for faster trigger return and surgical control during high speed shooting making it ideal for competitive shooting. With its enhanced ergonomic features of a beavertail grip, front strap checkering and front cocking serrations, the P220 Carry Elite is an excellent choice as a big bore carry pistol. Its beavertail grip allows the shooter to obtain his or her grip quickly and with confidence even under stress. Each P220 Carry Elite Stainless comes equipped with SIGLITE® Night Sights and the all-stainless construction provides shooters with greater control over recoil. The additional weight of both a stainless slide and frame, along with the enhanced ergonomics of a beavertail grip, make this .45ACP an absolute pleasure to shoot all day long.

This is my first Sig. I really like the double action and Decocker lever. The short reset trigger is awesome. This is a well balanced very accurate extremely well made pistol. This 45 is a pleasure to shoot the weight of the gun completely tames the cartridge. I will still carry my Glock 30S but this will be the first out of my bag at the range and will live in my nightstand safe. Buds as always did exactly what they advertise when it comes to buying from them which is exactly why I keep buying from them!!!

Wow! My wonderful "1st wife" as I have called her for over 40 years gave me one of my best ever Christmas presents! This has become my new favorite. 100 rounds today with zero problems.
Big thank you to my still trophy wife and Buds!

This was my first order from Bud's. I placed my order on Monday about noon. I received two email the same day that my order was being processed and when it was in the shipping department. First thing Tuesday morning (less that 24 hours) I got the shipping information with tracking number. By Thursday I had my order in my hand (would have been on Wednesday if not for the largest snow storm in the Midwest in years).

The overall process was easier than driving to the gun store. They even had my favorite FFL already in the system (Gun Galaxy if you are in the Northeast Ohio area) so I did not even have to call the dealer. Just placed the order and within less than 72 hours my order arrived. Everything looks perfect so far; new in the box in spanking new condition. All that is left is to go to the range tomorrow and do a test fire....stay tuned.

I have been pondering this purchase for a long time. Every time I got ready to pull the trigger, the gun would sell just before I could get it. This time I jumped, and wow am I glad. This is the steel frame version of the Sig 220 with the shorter barrel. I have so far fired 90 rounds of Blazer ball and 50 rounds of LSWC reloads all with no feeding problems. The gun I got has the new 229 style external extractor some don't like. There have been no issues, though I wonder why they bothered the change. The old internal style has worked for years. I am a Sig Armorer, and I do admit the new style is easier to replace, but I suspect perhaps more necessary to replace in time.

The wood grips are certainly a bit "chubby", and I suspect I will either go to factory plastic grips, or perhaps the aluminum grips. This gun would probably be perfect with the Black aluminum grips Sig is putting on the new Dark Elite. I long thought from dry firing the SRT trigger in these Elite's was all hype. I must say this trigger really is an improvement. The reset is not only short, the pull is AMAZINGLY light. I shot a 47 out of 50 on my agency qualification course with the gun, only having shot 50 rounds of practice the day before. Those three rounds were all me, and most of the rounds chewed a hole right in the middle of the target. Accuracy is definitely up to P220 standards!

This gun is heavier then the standard 220 Carry I was toting around before. I wanted steel though, and I got it. This gun should outlive my kids. I often carry a full size 5" steel framed 1911, and this gun is no heavier on the belt, but certainly no lighter. If you are going to carry this gun, make sure you invest in a good belt and a good holster or you will not like it.

Mine also came with 2 magazines, so if Sig did cut back in the past, they are now still packing two. Many people complain about new Sigs and feel the quality has dropped from the past. I just do not see it. This gun is every bit as good as my oldest full size 220, and with a steel frame and solid machined slide, I have to imagine it will be far more durable in the long term. If it had slimmer grips, I would give it 5 starts, as it is with the chubbies, I will say 4.5.

This is a very hard to find item and with good reason, it is one of the finest handguns you will ever wrap your fingers around. There is really no need to review the gun as this gun has been talked about so many places before so my comments are mostly regarding Bud's Gun Shop. First there should be questions regarding the listing. The Sig part number shown on Bud's listing is correct, "220R3-45-SSE". This is Buds part number is "50916". The description is NOT correct. This is NOT the P220 with 4.40" barrel, this is the P220 "CARRY" model with a 3.90" barrel which is MUCH harder to find.

When this model "220R3-45-SSE" came in I was surprised to see it in stock so I put it on Buds layaway curious how that would work - and I knew they would not last long. Well guess what it was only a matter of several days when this item was quickly gone and out of stock. My concern involved the question whether Bud's physically pulled the inventory and set aside items such as this on layaways. Well I can say they really do - just as they state within their terms which is after they receive your initial/first payment. The item remained out of stock for a couple months and remains out of stock as I write this review. I sent a final payment and as promised the gun shipped right out to my FFL dealer and I have it in my posession. The item arrived brand spanking prestine new. Also note mine was shipped from Bud's on 12-Oct-2009 and included (2) magazines.

I have purchased several guns from Bud's and the experience is always the same. They answer the telephone (in English) and respond to emails in a very timely fashion. Their staff is cordial and very knowledgeable - Buds is fantastic and I will do business with Bud's again and again.
