Nice weapon choice, When I purchased my Rami I was at a gun show looking for a deal on a P239. Now that I have my carry weapon one day I will buy a P229R Equinox. Be sure to give us a review
What's a Rami ? Is it a model by CZ , as indicated by the arrangement of the rounds in your profile pic? Neat idea, by the way.
As for the review, I don't know enough about guns to be qualified to give a review. I've only owned a shotgun and now this one. But here goes:
This handgun seems nice and sturdy. Sig's site says it's got a polymer frame, but it sure seems like metal to me. At least, every part I can see but the grips seems to be metal... So, must be some really sturdy polymer! (Note that I have not taken the grips off). Its weight feels good in my hand. Makes it feel like it will last a while.
The DA/SA action on this is traditional sig style (based on my experience shooting my friend's two different sigs): long pull for the first DA shot, then nice, perfect hair-pull trigger during SA. I personally love SA mode, I find it helps me focus more on aiming and less on trigger pulling.
It has an external hammer. I like that. I like to be able to pull the hammer back with my thumb, if I know a round is already in the chamber. With any gun that comes with single-action capability, a de-cocker is always nice. Lucky for me, the P239 does indeed have a de-cocker. Perfect for conceal carry, I can load a bullet in the chamber, then de-cock and stick in my conceal carry holster. Mexican carry, while dangerous and uncomfortable, will at least be an option with this gun, since the first shot is a long pull (I don't ever plan on carrying this way, but it's nice that it remains an option).
So far, I have shot exactly 51 rounds through it. I used cheap Blazer TMJ ammo (non-brass) for the first 50 shots. The last round was Speer Dot Gold. I noticed no difference in feeding, shooting, or ejection between the two different types of rounds. I had no FTF's. I can't say how the groups were because I've only done plinking so far, no real target shooting.
I know if I'd shot a few hundred more rounds, this review might be worth more. As it was, I actually had 50 more rounds of HSM ammo that I could have shot, but I didn't want to use any of them for fear of voiding my warranty. The warranty says I can't shoot reloads--I'm not certain whether that includes factory-reloads or not. So far, I'm not taking a chance on it.
All in all, I really like this Sig. (but then again, how many first-time handgun owners do you know that did NOT like their first gun? -- so take all this with a grain of salt
Once I decided to get a .40, I decided to get a Sig based on recommendations from friends, and shooting their guns. I ended up choosing this model because it was the smallest Sig I could get (that I know of) that is chambered in .40. (I plan on carrying this gun regularly, once I get my CCP).
