The SIG Sauer P226 is a full-sized, service-type pistol made by SIG Sauer. It is chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .22 Long Rifle. It is essentially the same basic design of the SIG Sauer P220, but developed to use higher capacity, double stack magazines in place of the single stack magazines of the P220.

ERGONOMIC WALTHER GRIP: Comfortable shape. Non-slip cross-directional grip surface. SEVERAL MAGAZINE OPTIONS: Choose from standard capacity, high capacity, or compact.
Beretta 92 series, Government 1911 model and Glock 17 are some of the most famous and common guns in the world. Each of these models has many admirers and harsh critics. All three pistols use different mechanics, shooting mechanisms and different calibers, even though we used the classical .45 ACP and the 9 mm (parabellum or the strange 9x21 used in Italy).
The Glock doesn't have, or need, a manual safety, that must, be manipulated to fire. Lastly the Glock has greater ammunition capacity, over the 1911. With just carrying the one mag in each firearm, the Glock has 14 rounds, with the 1911 I having only 9! That's 5 more, if needed, in the Glock.
In 1985, Springfield Armory® in Geneseo, Illinois first offered newly manufactured 1911s to the gun buying public. The next 28 years firmly established Springfield Armory® as the leading manufacturer of 1911s – and the standard by which all other 1911s are judged today.
It’s time to compare apples to badass apples with the REAL argument: which is better, the 1911 or the Sig Sauer P220? (TL;DR: The Sig P220 is way better). I’ll admit I’m a Sig Sauer fanboy of the highest accord, and it all started when I got my first Sig Sauer P220 in .45 ACP years ago.
