I am completely unfamiliar with the SIG line of handguns. I am looking for a .22 target pistol and have read a lot about the Rugers and Brownings, but not the trailside.

Anyone have any information, opinions, comments on the trailside or the SIG line of pistols in general.

Especially interested in accuracy and reliability.

Woodchuk,

I have no experience with the .22, but the Sig line has overall been very impressive to me. The weapons are well-constructed, and I have never heard a bad word about them. Seems to me it would be safe to assume the construction standards would apply to all of their weaponry.

My Sig 220 is one very nice, reliable weapon. I won't ever trade it off. I've got pistols with more power, more accurace, and more capacity, but I don't have one that's got even two of those over my 220.

The Sig trailside

Very nice gun, very accurate, all Sig Sauer handguns are the epitome of perfection. I've shot every major brand of handgun except Kahr and Sig beats them all hands down. The only Sig product I ever had any reservations about was my SP2340. When I bought it new from the factory it didn't want to push the round completely into battery. They recommended burnishing the slide and rails a little bit, worked fine after that. I wouldn't look at anything other than a Sig from now on. I traded in the SigPro, I should have bought my 229 earlier.

I had a Trailside. The trigger pull was above average but I didn't like the plastic trigger. It grouped about 1 inch at 25 yards, but it was hard to mount a scope on it. I traded it for a Smith 41 and never looked back.

Do you want a plinker that is super accurate or one with adjustable sights, equally as accurate. Get a Sig Trailside..I recently got a Trailside with fixed sights. I will admit the molded grips and the molded magazine made me a trifle leary until I shot it.. The gun has a good trigger and the balance is very good. I need to get a rear sight one increment higher as it shoots about 1.5 inches low at 25 yards. I am now looking for the target version with wood stocks and adjustable sight. These Trailsides are designed by Hammerli.. from cbagman
