Restricted .45 cartridge for P-220
Does anyone know if the SIG P-220 will not accept normal .45 ACP
cartridge, but must use a new shorter .45 made specifically for this gun and no other? A clerk in a sporting goods, gun section, told me he just heard that.

I've never heard of such a thing. Every .45 caliber P220 that I've ever seen has been chambered in .45 ACP. Is Sig going to be offering anything chambered in .45 GAP?

Not to worry. The 220 uses plain old 45acp.

Attn JessD: Considering P220
The SIG P220 can be found in three flavors: 9mm, 38 Super, and most commonly .45ACP. To the best of my knowledge, SIG is not currently manufacturing the 9mm/.38S versions, though I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one in .38 Super. If I ever come across one in good shape at a fair price I will probably pick it up.
If the gent behind the counter doesn't know what THE .45 ACP!!!! is, he has a lot to learn. Sounds like he got confused with the new .45 GAP (Glock Auto Pistol), which is actually a little shorter than the ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) version, made by Glock to put a .45 diameter cartidge in smaller 9mm/.40S&W size handguns.
Also, for what it's worth, I posted a late reply to your inquires to me a few weeks back concerning the 220 under the other topic. Sounds like you may have already picked up the 220 tho.
Look over what I put on the other reply and let me know if you have any further questions.
Regards, good luck, and stay safe,

why is it that the people selling you guns these days (with a few exceptions) seem to know less than you do about the guns they are selling? I was looking at a Sig GSR tonight and I had to tell the Salesman about it he had no clue.

Because with the few exceptions you mentioned, it's a retail
job in an industry that is barely kicking over. The only times
the gunshops are selling enough guns to afford quality help,
is when Klinton and Kongress passed another stupid gun law.
Most of the old time guys who had the knowledge are moving
on or clinging to the one or two 'good' gunshops in anytown
USA. I'm not saying that this is the situation in every town,
but from everyone I've talked to, that's how it is. It's damn
hard to support a family at $10 an hour(or less). If you make
more than that, you can be replaced by a recently graduated
high school kid at $6 an hour! It's hard for the employer to
be loyal to his employee and still open the door in the morning.
It's a horrible problem, and a solution is nowhere in sight.
Thanks for listening to my rant. :roll:
