    I just bought one of the full size ones from Keith's and will have it next week.

    Really want the Carry version and have a deposit down for one there for when it comes in.

    Any thoughts, advice, criticism you would like to offer is appreciated.

    Thought the wider grip was a bit unconventional, guess I'm just use to the 229/226/220. Like the stagger stack but wish it held more rounds so I could convince myself to drop my 220's in favor of it. Overall it's a P-Series Sig so you know it's gonna be an awesome workhorse.

    My P228 has this hogue grip so i am used to the wider grip and loved the feel in the store when I held it.

    I'd be interested to see whether the 227 has an arched or "coiled" trigger bar spring.

    It's coiled...you can't put E2 style grips on the old style trigger bar spring.

    Thanks. The arched spring is the only thing I dislike about the 220. The other day I tried putting a coiled spring on a P220 SAS that has slim grips, and while the trigger worked, I could hear the spring clicking against the grip's underside. I don't think there's enough material on the underside to remove so the spring can work without rubbing.

    Just offhand, do you know whether Sig manufactured Rosewood 220 grips would permit a coiled spring?
