Sig 220 legion VS Stock 1
« on: February 03, 2018, 09:05:58 PM »
So I have this problem...

I’m trying to decided between my Sig 220 legion and my new EAA Stock 1 10mm. They both shoot like a dream and I do like them both very much. I’m trying to replace my plastic 10mm woods carry piece. I have sold off all my Glocks. I have is down to the sig having a decocker which I really like and the Stock having greater ammo capacity. What do you guys think would be a better Woods gun?

I'm a Witness guy. My Stock 2 is the best shooting, best all around 10mm I've ever owned. But it's too pretty to be a woods gun. That's why I bought a 2nd one to carry everywhere I go!

But if you want serious firepower, you can do what I did. Purchased a used Witness hunter for $700. Sent it to a gunsmith and had it converted to DA/SA. So now I have the 6 inch barrel for extra power, with 15 round capacity and a DA trigger that I'm comfortable with.

I do like that idea! What was the cost to convert to double action?

It was about $200. However I already had the parts he could use to do the job from an old Witness steel model that had a cracked slide. Not sure if/how the parts could be ordered or if a gunsmith could manufacture the parts needed himself.

Any thoughts on going to the new Stock 1?

On paper, the EAA Elite Stock 1 looks to have the edge with the HC finish, polygonal rifling and some may prefer the bull / conical barrel.  I'm sure the new Stock 1 is quite nice though.  The new grip frame looks like it might feel even better.

LOL, do not use +P 10mm. There is no such thing.

Didn’t notice that on the manual till now. I pulled it out and looked it over.

 So are these not ok to eat a steady diet of Underwood? That might have made my mind up right there.

It is a generic manual they include with all guns of that model family, regardless of caliber.  9mm and 45 ACP do have +P designations.

I guess none of mine had the +P manuals with them  :-X

I'm confused though. Your Stock I should already be DA??

IC, What Patriot was referring to was buying a used hunter and having it converted.

Still on the fence here.. I thought the Stock would have sold and it would be an easier choice to make. Will the stock hold up to a steady diet of underwood ammo? Let’s say I update the guide rod and go with a 20lbs recoil spring. I only shoot full power ammo in my 10mm guns so want to make sure it will be up to the task.
