*When I started making this guide I had no idea there were so many newer variants so this became a lot more detailed than I originally intended. SIG puts all other pistol manufacturers to shame (even Kimber) with their catalog variety. I threw in quite a few discontinued variants but there are dozens, perhaps I'll finish it later. Since I obviously don’t own all of these variations please let me know if a correction or addition should be made. Very little in here is authoritative and I'm sure there's a mistake (or two) somewhere.

*I purposely omitted the SIG P516, P556 (SIG AR and 556 pistol variants, respectively), and Mosquito guns. Mosquitoes are pretty simple --- they are all .22LR and the cosmetic scheme is described in the model e.g. Mosquito Multi Cam is (surprise) finished in Multicam camouflage.

Quick summary descriptions (models in red are out of production as of June 2012):

P210: 9x19mm or .30 Luger, 4.7” barrel 8rnd mags
P220: .45 ACP (some rare early 9mm and .38 Super), 4.4” barrel 7/8rnd mags
P220 Carry: .45 ACP, 3.9” barrel 7/8rnd mags
P220 Compact: .45 ACP, 3.9” barrel 6rnd mags
P224: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, 3.5” barrel 11/10rnd mags
P225: 9x19mm, 3.9” barrel 8rnd mags
P226: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, 4.4” barrel 15/12rnd mags
P228: 9x19mm, 3.9” barrel, 13rnd mags
P227: (new) .45 ACP, 4.4” barrel 10/14rnd mags
P229: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, 3.9” barrel 13/12rnd mags
P230: .32ACP, .380ACP, 3.6” barrel 8/7rnd mags
P232: .380ACP, 3.6” barrel 7rnd mags
P238: .380ACP, 2.7” barrel 6rnd mags
P245: .45 ACP, 3.9” barrel 6rnd mags
P250 Full Size: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, .45 ACP, 4.7” barrel 17/14/10rnd mags
P250 Compact: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, .45 ACP, 3.9” barrel 15/13/9rnd mags
P250 Subcompact: .380ACP, 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, .45 ACP, 3.6” barrel 12/10/6rnd mags
P290: 9x19mm, 2.9” barrel, 6rnd mags
P938: 9x19mm, 3” barrel, 6rnd mags.
SP2009: 9x19mm, 3.9” barrel, 15rnd mags
SP2022: 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, 3.9” barrel 15/12rnd mags
SP2340: .40S&W, .357SIG, 3.9” barrel 12rnd mags

Detailed descriptions:

DA/SA = Double Action/Single Action. First trigger pull with the hammer down is double action, subsequent shots are single action. Can lock hammer back manually for single action first shot.
DAO = Double Action Only. All trigger pulls are double action, hammer does not lock back.
DAK = Double Action Kellerman. Proprietary double action only system with a more consistent trigger pull than DAO.
SAO = Single action only. To fire the first shot the hammer must be back and locked, pulling the trigger with the hammer forward does nothing.
SRT = Short Reset Trigger. SIG design where subsequent trigger pulls can be made without the traditional long trigger reset.

P210
• 9x19mm or 7.62x21mm/.30 Luger 4.7” barrel 8rnd mags. Heel magazine release, SAO operation, manual safety. Made in Switzerland.
• P210 Legend 9x19mm 4.7” barrel 8rnd mags. Grip magazine release, SAO operation, manual safety, Nitron finish. Newer model (2010-present) made in Germany.

P220
• 9x19mm 4.4” barrel 8rnd mags. Heel magazine release, DA/SA operation, decocker, no external safety, early model, not common.
• .38 Super 4.4” barrel 8rnd mags. Heel magazine release, DA/SA operation, decocker, no external safety, early model, very rare.
• .45 ACP 4.4” barrel 7 or 8rnd mags. DA/SA operation, decocker, no external safety. Only P220 model sold in the U.S. from about 1981-2002.
• Early guns will have a heel magazine release.
• All P220 slides with a split roll breech block retaining pin (about 1” behind the ejection port) are German-made mandrel folded carbon steel with breech block inserts and internal extractors.
• All P220 slides with a solid breech block retaining pin (about 1” behind the ejection port) are U.S.-made milled stainless one-piece with internal (older) or external (newer) extractors. Changeover to milled stainless was later with the P220 starting around 2000.
• For the newer models (all in .45 ACP caliber except for the Classic 22) refer to the table below:
Image

*All DA/SA models have a decocker and no external safety.
*All DAK models have no decocker and no external safety.
*All SAO models have a manual external safety and no decocker.

P224
• 9x19mm 3.5” barrel 11rnd mags. No decocker or external safety.
• .40S&W 3.5” barrel 10rnd mags. No decocker or external safety.
• .357SIG 3.5” barrel 10rnd mags. No decocker or external safety.
• Variants:
Image

P225
• 9x19mm 3.9” barrel 8rnd mags. DA/SA operation, decocker, no external safety. Known as the P6 in Germany, essentially an early model P220 9mm with a grip magazine release along with a shorter barrel and slide.


P226
• 9mm, .40S&W, or .357SIG. 4.4” barrel except for TB (threaded barrel) and X-Five models which are 5”. Older models do not have rails while all newer production models do. Ergo grips on some newer guns.
• As with the P220:
• All P226 slides with a split roll breech block retaining pin (about 1” behind the ejection port) are German-made mandrel folded carbon steel with breechblock inserts and internal extractors. These guns are only available in 9mm, one of the key reasons SIG went to milled stainless was to produce .40S&W/.357SIG versions.
• All P226 slides with a solid breech block retaining pin (about 1” behind the ejection port) are U.S.-made milled stainless one-piece with internal (older) or external (newer) extractors. These guns (with internal extractors) started production around 1996.
• Newer Variants:
Image
*All DA/SA models have a decocker and no external safety.
*All DAK models have no decocker and no external safety.
*All SAO models have a manual external safety and no decocker.
*Extended Magazine: Standard magazines for the P226 are 15rnd 9x19mm and 12rnd .40S&W and .357SIG. Some newer models come with 20rnd 9mm or 15rnd .40S&W/.357SIG, X-Five models typically come with 19rnd 9mm or 14rnd .40S&W.

P228
• 9x19mm 3.9” barrel 13rnd mags. DA/SA, decocker, no external safety; there are some DAO with no decocker or safety. Essentially an early model P226 with reduced length slide, barrel, and grip. All are German-made mandrel rolled slides with alloy frames. If it has a split roll breech block pin it’s a P228, if it has a solid pin it’s a P229. U.S. military model M11.

P229
• 9x19mm, .40S&W, or .357SIG. 3.9” barrel. 9mm models 13rnd mags, .40S&W and .357SIG 12rnd mags. All have U.S. made stainless slides.
• Variants:
Image

P230
• .32ACP or .380ACP 3.6” barrel. .32ACP 8rnd mags, .380ACP 7rnd mags. DA/SA, decocker, no external safety. Replaced by the P232 (milled stainless slide changeover) starting in 1996.

P232
• .380ACP 3.6” barrel 7rnd mags. DA/SA, decocker, no external safety. Standard, two-tone, and stainless (with stainless frame vs. alloy).

P238
• .380ACP, 2.7” barrel, 6 or 7rnd mags. SAO operation, manual safety. Essentially a mini-1911/Colt Mustang with SIG scalloped slide.
• Variants (mostly cosmetic differences):
Image

P239
• 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG. 3.6” barrel. 9mm 8rnd mags, .40S&W/.357SIG 7rnd mags. All have U.S. made stainless slides with external extractors.
• Variants:
Image

P245
• .45ACP 3.9” barrel 6rnd mag. DA/SA operation, decocker, no external safety; there are some DAO with no decocker or safety. Essentially a carry version of the early model P220. There are both older carbon steel and newer stainless slide P245s but all have an internal extractor, if it has an external extractor it is a P220 Compact. Much easier way to tell is look at the number on the slide --- it's either stamped P245 or P220, no guesswork needed.

P250
• .380ACP, 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG, .45 ACP. 4.7” (full size) 3.9” (compact) 3.6” (subcompact) barrels, 17/14/10rnd mags (full size) 15/13/9rnd mags (compact) 12/10/6rnd mags (subcompact), DAO operation, no decocker or external safety, modular design where slides, trigger groups, and frames can be swapped and changed.
• Variants:
Image

P290
• 9x19mm, 2.9” barrel, 6rnd mags. DAO operation, no decocker, no external safety. Variants include Laser, Two-Tone, Diamondplate.

P938
• 9x19mm, 3” barrel, 6rnd mags. SAO operation, no decocker, manual safety. Essentially a slightly larger P238 in 9mm.
• Variants:
Image

SP2009
• 9x19mm, 3.9” barrel, 15rnd mags. DAO operation, decocker, no manual safety. 9mm version of the SP2340, replaced by the SP2022.

SP2022
• 9x19mm, .40S&W, .357SIG. 3.9” barrel 9mm 15rnd mags, .40S&W/.357SIG 12rnd mags. DA/SA with option to convert to DAO, decocker, no external safety. All models have a Picatinny rail.
• Variants:
Image

SP2340
• .40S&W, .357SIG. 3.9” barrel 12rnd mags. DAO operation, decocker, no manual safety. First Pro series guns, replaced by the SP2022.

Very early heel-magazine release model:
Image

Early split roll breech block pin, mandrel folded German-made carbon steel slide:
Image

Solid pin U.S. made stainless steel slide with internal extractor (note that it's only about 10,000 down the line by serial number from the one above):
Image

Solid pin U.S. made stainless steel slide (Nitron coated in this case) with external extractor:

As I have no clue when it comes to Sig other than the 238 and a couple others. I am clueless on this brand.

thanks for taking the time to contribute this quality information.


Maddick thanks for making this a sticky I don't have to search all over the world to figure out which is which any more.

Yeah I am realizing there are a ton of variants made in the last decade that didn't last long. The current production ones are easy --- they are on SIG Sauer's website. They have a handful of discontinued models on there as well. Most of the other ones I found were from trolling GB or SIG fanboy sites.

Would be a shame if a magazine restriction kills SIG's latest push to build a double stack P220. From what I understand AWB 1994 killed the "P221." Hindsight is 20/20, but why they didn't hit the market hard in 2004 or 2005 is odd since the market was definitely there and waiting. Some guys (and gals) like big handguns.

Well done.

Sig may make a lot of "variants" but one thing is common among all them. Quality and Reliability.

I sure love mine. :4couple:
