I like the size and style of the 226 but want a .45. If I remember correctly, the 220 was much bulkier than the 226?
The base (they have 90 configurations of every pistol now) P220 has identical dimensions to the base P226. The only variance is the P226 is listed as heavier with magazine (and who knows what ammo they're loading), which makes sense because 17 9mm rounds should weigh a couple ounces more than 8 .45.
(ETA: My West German P220 was the best pistol I ever fired, and I shouldn't have sold it, no matter how noble the intention. My Exeter, NH P245 - is the second best, and I'm keeping it until I die.)
