    Call it blasphemy but I'm not in love with the 1911. I do like the P220 i used to have but wanting capacity I've taken a shine to the FN45 any opinion on them? Have considered the new P227 but haven't seen on or seen how they look with the 14rnd mag. This would be a truck gun range toy and I'd probably put it on layaway as that's how I buy most my handguns.

    It's nit blasphemy to be in love with a 1911; rather, its blasphemous to be in love with anything else.

    Edit: just saw you said you're NOT in love... Terrble. Juss terrble.

    Get the p227

    Haven't seen on in the wild id like to know how much those extended mags protrude.

    The magazines are double stack, so they shouldn't protrude significantly. The 10 round should be flush and the 14 shouldn't protrude any more than the 10 round P220 magazine.

    Guess my top choices are the FN and the SIG, the FN my first choice does anybody have one? I used to have a P220 liked but not enough to stop me from trading for a SW M19 Snubby.

    Handled an FN a few times, never got the chance to shoot it. Fits the hand nice, feels kind of bulky IMO, and that's coming from a Sig shooter.

    My first modern pistol I ever bought was my W. German 226 my favorite and potentially the gun I'm most accurate with. So I know what your saying. The 227 just doesn't have what I want with the big extended mags. I have two of the old 18rn Mecgars for my 226 and I hate them though they are reliable just ugly.
