Rented the Sig P220 (.45) today, I liked everything about it But the trigger was long to pull and long to reset after each shot.... not a fast gun to shoot.
I was impressed with the accuracy at 50ft and 100ft.

Any thoughts on why the trigger has such a long pull? I asked the salesman and he responded with that's the way it is with Sig firearms.
Then I compared it to the FNP45 and that had a very short trigger movement.

Can anyone here explain why either would be better then the other?
thanks

sig makes actually a short recess trigger. Just ask you salesmen to give you one with SRT and you can see the difference. At least that's the case for my P226

We chopped it down to "commander" length, manufactured a custom barrel bushing, custom barrel, thumb safety and other small parts. Coated with our Isonite QPQ treatment, slimmed the grip down .300 and made some grips out of a pair of take off S&W grips.

Nice work. Thanks for the response.

Krbczech took me to the range for my birthday today!

Gotta shoot a P250 which was pretty fun!

But the real present was 50 rounds of .357 through an sp101!!!

Well, my steel heroin dealer came by a loaded Caspian at a price I could not refuse. Damnnit. This baby has been built to the hilt from Heinie to Wilson to Kart. SHit.

Ordered a CZ SP01 today, woohoo!

I can clearly see that I NEED a HP similar to the one The_Commander posted though, beautiful work!

Is the same finish applied to the controls? Hard to tell from the pics but I think I see some contrast...

I've had a few Sigs, they make what they call a short trigger, which is just a thinner trigger for short fingered people. My .40 has their DAK trigger which is supposed to be all that, but, I shot a friends Smith M&P and was more impressed with the trigger on that gun. The Sig I carry most is my wife's 232, it's a .380, but I like the size and trigger and single action capability of that piece.

Same finish, different texture application. The frame/slide was blasted with aluminum oxide then hand sanded, the small parts and controls were glass bead blasted.
