Sig 226 or HK P30

What say the outdoor board? Better suggestions?

Not getting a 1911 yet so we can leave that out.

I have a 226 and I love it. I don't have an HK so I can't speak for that.

I only have about 200 rds in a sig 226 but I have thousands down the barrel in a p30 in both .40 and 9mm and a p30l in 9mm.

The p30l is my most favoritest handgun ever, I love her.

I tried to buy one at Jefferson Gun today and they didn't have one in stock. Asked the guy about ordering one and he said they can't. WTF?

It was a mad house in there. I did see the P30 and liked it a lot.

Couldn't get close enough to see and it was too busy to get help. Guy took ten seconds to tell me my 226 I had my mind at on was sold and that threw a wrench into everything.

Well that's why you didn't walk out of the store with it. Pick it up and it is unlikely you will give it back.

Most common is the v3 DA/SA trigger with the rear decocker. It has a spured hammer as well. More rare are the v1/2 LEM which have a bobbed hammer and have the same trigger pull each shot.

My .40 is a standard size with the external safety and my 9mm is a L version with no safety. Both are awesome.

On just reputation I would go with HK.

I don't own either but have handled both. I liked the HK better.

$950 is a good price locally.
Buying online you would only save about $40 but then you have to pay transfer and shipping.

LINK

Just make sure it is a BC, BB or BA date code.
BC = 2012
BB = 2011
BA = 2010

I wouldn't pay full price for one older than that.

I love my 226. Don't have a P30, so I can't compare those two. But I have a do have an HK P7 that is very cool. I think you'll be fine with either one.

My buddy has a p30, and it may is one of the best handguns I've ever shot. My uncle has a 226 and it is a great piece as well. Out of the 2 I'd go p30 though.

I have 2 226s and a USP in 45. I love the Sigs but I prefer shooting the USP

Never held the P30. It caught my eye and I know HK is a solid brand.

The P30 is an ergonomic masterpiece
