Sweet! Thanks for posting that. That was pretty cool to see. It really is true (about the older Sigs at least) that they are sort of like older Porsches as far as the hand craftmanship and precision goes. There are certainly far easier ways a handgun could be built, but who cares! The Sigs I've owned have always run like lawnmowers as far as reliability goes, but with the precision of say a 911.

I love my milled-slide P220, but I've handled a few stamped-slide Sigs and am impressed with how they got around the weaknesses of a stamped slide (weld-in front end, ejector port/lockup area and pinned breech block).

I've hit 12" targets with my 220 at 50 yards.

Yeah those old reaper style push mowers always work.
