Anyone here had any experience with this little big-bore SIG? Just curious how anyone feels about it...it doesn't seem to get much press that I can find, but the idea seems interesting.

Thanks,

Eric

I bought one a little while ago. It is my first Sig. I stopped at the gunstore on lunch break and bought it on impulse. :grin:
Reasons, Sig quality, good carry size,45acp,
MA approved as I live in The Republic of MA.
:sad: It is quite accurate and simple to break down. I have mostly Glocks and recently got 2 1911's which are hard to get in MA.The only thing I don't care for is the length of trigger travel. The Glock has a shorter travel and reset and the 1911 is best IMHO.
I like it enough that I ordered a VM II from Milt Sparks for it. :grin:

I got one in June and I really like it. About 300 rds through it without a single failure of any kind. I use it as my desk gun and off duty gun now. I still carry a 1911 as a field gun. If you try a speed reload with it be careful as you can pinch yourself really bad with it. Carry 220 mags if you want to speed reload. Mine came with nite sights and I don't care for them, but I can live with them. I carry mine at work in an Alessi DOJ holster and its comfortable. The ammo I carry is W-W 230 JHP.

Think the 245 is under-appreciated. Had a Glock 30 that could never get used to or shoot well mostly due to having large hands & long fingers. The 245 fits same very well and the 245 have shoots typically soft like most Sigs. This one is very accurate & has the best stock trigger both DA & SA have had in 6 or so Sigs right out of the box. Excellent pistola!

Bought a 245 about 6mos. ago, what a great gun. Agree with the other shooter, watch those speedloads. This little workhorse feeds and digests any ammo I have put through it. I've been carrying the new Federal expanding ball. Fobus makes a great holster for it in a paddle model or beltloop, this gun is great!

just bought the p245 about a week ago. was wondering what everyone thought was the best ammo to use, both for cost and reliability.

also, does anyone know about an 8 rd conversion kit, possibly with the extra finger. heard about it, but not sure if it's available.

a2t2p... I've been feeding ALOT of 230gr. ball, both commercial and military through mine, and I just can't get it to malfunction....
I've used every commercial weight (factory load) and a couple of different reloads... this gun eats and CYCLES everything! I personally carry Federal's NEW fmj expanding ball.(200gr) It's the only thing a Jersey homeowner can count on...

thanks for the input, i picked up some 230gr. fmj from federal, no expanding ball, the gun fired perfectly through about 100 rounds. no misfires.

i have a friend who does reloads, much, much cheaper, but is there anything i should be wary of?

a2t2p Obviously use QUALITY components in the reloads. The only thing my 245 doesn't shoot very well is a bunch of semi wc 185gr. I've had laying around for a while. Other than that, mine digests whatever I feed it...
Have fun & good shootin".

I bought one about three weeks ago. It was after comparing with a few other manufacturers. It is an excellent pistol that is easy to shoot well. It took me a couple of trips to the range to get myself dialed into it, but now that I am, it is a sheer pleasure to shoot. The only thing that I would like is an 8 shot magazine with a finger rest on it.

500 rounds later this little gun is gettin' smooooooother by the shot! I called Pearce grip and inquired about an extention like for the Glock 30's, they said that it is in development!
My $.02...anybody considering a small .45 should look at this one seriously! :grin:

please keep us informed of that extension. like i said before, i've heard of it with the +2 capacity, but haven't found it anywhere.

after about 300 rounds of reloads, this gun just won't misfire. it groups amazingly well at short distances, and believe it or not, i was hitting a 6" x 6" target about 60-70% of the time at 100yds. unreal for a handgun, let alone a compact .45
