GUN Why do Sig Pro's get such a bad rap?

    Every review I've read said they're nicely built, reliable...etc...

    Is it just that Sig loyalists refuse to accept a polymer sig? Are there any actually documented problems Sig Pros are more prone too than any other polymer pistol?

    I have one and I love it. Several guys at the gun shop I go to carry them. The only problem I've had is shooting Wolf, and TWO XDs had the same problem with the same ammo, so it was probably the ammo.

    I actually like the 2022 better than the 229.

    There's nothing wrong with SigPro's at all. If Sig jacked up the price by $200 I bet people would love them, it's just since they're so much cheaper people think they're not as good as traditional Sig's.

    Sig is coming out with a new polymer pistol called the P250 which has an internal metal sub frame which has polymer outer frames which go over the metal sub frame and different sizes and colors are available, the serial# is on the internal metal sub frame and is seen through a window on the outer polymer frame so you can get new outer frames in different colors like OD green or brown without having to go through an FFL and whatnot. I think it looks awesome and i'm considering getting one when they come out.

    ^^^^^^^^notice the serial# is seen through a "window" on the outer frame.

    rofl, Sig's making a cross between an XD and a USP. I can see both in that design.

    There is no such thing as a CPO 229 DAK. All DAK Sig's that go through Sig's CPO process are convereted to DA/SA. You will not find a CPO 229 DAK and if someone is advertising one as such, they're lying about it being CPO or they converted the CPO gun back to DAK themselves.

    They were made to compete with other poly guns, hence the lower price. My local reputable gun store where I live has sent 3 sig pros back for repairs. No P-series has ever been sent back. Sig pros aren't that great.
