I recently purchased a Sig 2022 9mm pistol. It was $349 brand new in the box. Good deal? Well – that is a matter of perspective.
This past weekend I had an opportunity to shoot it and – for me at least – this thing…..and please excuse me…..it sucks. It is accurate, reliable, has great sights, feels decent in the hand, is affordable, and the trigger pull………absolutely terrible.
This is a double action pistol with a decocker. If the hammer is down – you can pull the trigger like a revolver to move the hammer back and fire the round in the chamber. Subsequent rounds will be in semi-automatic. The double-action pull is extremely long. Just awful. The single action trigger pull is not heavy – just long again. Quick follow up shots are not easy.
I had great difficulty shooting this pistol. It just felt uncomfortable. I cannot deal with the trigger pull. The price of this pistol is inline with the S&W Sigma pistol – which I have had one. I would much rather shoot the Sigma than this Sig.
Obviously I am disappointed. There are many people out there that like the Sig – and that is fine – but not for me. I heard the name Sig – which has a reputation for quality and reliability. This pistol may have both but I will take my M&P or XD over it any day.
I will be getting rid of it this week.
