Can anyone recommend any type of grips for my P220 in 45 ACP? I am currently using the Hogue rubber, which feels good, but I am just not crazy about.

Thanks for the help.

I have some Hogue wood grips for mine that I ordered from their web site. They look pretty good, but they're much wider than the stock grips. They weren't cheap, either.

You might also want to check out the Nill grips for your Sig. I don't have them, but they look nice (and are even more expensive).

Thanks, Craig.

I like those. They look good, especially that dark red against the matte finish.

How expensive is expensive? 50 to 75 bucks for a set?

The width is a factor. I love the width and thickness of the factory grips, and am not crazy about the thickness of the Hogue rubbers.

Is that a 220 in 45 as well? What type of magazine are you using?

Yes, mine is a .45 also, and the mag is standard factory. I tried the Hogue rubber grips as well and took them right off. I didn't like the look or feel of them at all. However, the wood ones are even a bit wider than the rubber. Mine are cocobolo and were $70. The checkered ones are $95, which is way too much. The wood grips feel good in the hand, but I wouldn't use them for everyday carry. Since I use the Sig mainly as a bedside gun, the width doesn't matter so much.

I tried some hogues on mine didnt like 'em too thick, i dont like any grips w/the finger grooves on them on autos (ok on some revolvers) i would stick with the std grips or maybe try some of the wood grips SIG sells, IIRC they arent a lot thicker than std anyway, nill (iirc the name) makes some SIG grips, i think the site is nill.com or nillgrips.com i used to have a link till my PC crashed, all the wooden grips i have seen for SIGs are $80 and up/up/up, some are $150, too much for me though for grips. the grips on my P225 are funked out from gunscrubber and was gonna get some nills for it, $125, i'll live with the funk at that price lol.

Now you tell me! :D I just ordered a set of the finger groove Hogue grips for my P220. I'm hoping that they'll feel a little more comfortable.

The wider stock grips on my other caliber (double stack) SIGS are just fine.

Panella,

Please don't misunderstand. I like the Hogue finger groove grips in rubber. They feel good in my hand, and stay comfortable longer on the range.

I just can't stand to carry them IWB, or under a coat b/c the rubber is always hanging up on clothing.

This never seems to affect anyone else, but I can stand this. This is the very reason I have always disliked extreme/sharp checkering.

I also think they don't look as good as a nicer set of wood, but that is purely an aesthetic(sic) reason.

As far as the thickness, they are thicker than the latest factory grips, and thinner grips always feel better in my hand.

If you are a fan of Hogues I think you will enjoy your purchase.

BTW I talked with one gentleman in MI that does high end grips for Sig 220's, but they are very costly. The link shows a set of grips they made for a customer that cost $225. :D

I must say they are sweet, but I would have them scarred up in a few days.

Thanks for the clarification. Since I live in Kalifornia, I don't carry. But I can understand how the rubber grips might be uncomfortable.

For some reason, out of all my handguns, the P220 grip is just hard to get a tight hold on for me. The angles just don't quite fit my palm. It wants to squirm a little when shooting and it affects follow up shots. I'm hoping the slightly wider, rounder and grippier Hogues will feel more like my other Sigs.
