    I was under the impression that new Sigs were shipping with only one magazine these days. My new P220 Carry Stainless Elite came with two. Have they stopped the one mag nonsense or did I get lucky?

    Correct.

    Some Guns might be old stock with 1 mag, even though they are "new".
    (old production, old stock, or sometimes error on the part of SIG.)

    To quote Sig Sauer's press release from its web site sigsauer.com:

    "SIG SAUER® Standard Commercial Pistols To Resume Shipping with Two Magazines

    EXETER, NH (May 21, 2009) – SIG SAUER, the leading manufacturer of military, law enforcement, government agency and commercial firearms, will resume shipping all standard commercial pistols with two magazines. SIG SAUER suppliers increased production to meet the heightened consumer demand, thus allowing SIG SAUER to resume shipping two magazines with every commercial handgun.

    Previously, SIG SAUER had announced effective March 20, 2009, that all standard commercial pistols would ship with a single magazine. Models that included more than two magazines were not affected. Shipments to distributors and dealers with the two magazines in each pistol will commence immediately."

    (End quote)

    My Oct. 2009 purchased P232 came w/2 mags.

    I have the same kind of material inside my case-really terrible, cheap
    looking. I don't know why Sig decided to go with these-hopefully it's a temporary thing. I prefer the old type interiors or the all-foam kind in the cases that Sig sells now on its site-much better and probably more durable too.

    My 220 carry I bought a couple of weeks ago came with 2 mags and the same blue case.

    Does anyone know of a good gunsmith to do a nice trigger job on these sigs?

    GrayGuns IS the best.

    Bruce is the only true master SIG Smith that I can think of, and the only one I have trusted to work on my weapons.
