P220 Elite

sig p220 platinum elite pistol

The Sig Sauer P220 Elite is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered for .45 ACP. The P220 Elite is one in a family of 15 pistols, but what makes it unique to the family is that it is available in stainless steel or alloy steel.

All of the Elites (the Elite Stainless, Elite Dark and Elite Platinum) have a beavertail grip and Short Reset Trigger System. The SRT system is supposed to help increase trigger return time for faster, smoother firing. The Elite Stainless also has custom wood grips and Siglite night sights.

The P220s use the same action as Browning’s Hi-Power pistol, which is a locked-breech system where the recoil is absorbed by a spring and guide rod rather than the frame.

Features include a short Picatinny rail for easy mounting of accessories as well as the Sig four-point safety system. This system includes decocking lever, so shooters can switch from a double-action or single-action trigger. It has a patented automatic firing pin safety block and a safety intercept notch, which is an internal safety block, and trigger bar disconnector.

Sig Sauer recommends the P220 Elite Stainless, P220 Elite Dark and P220 Platinum Elite for speed shooting.
