THIS. IIRC you can swap in the barrel for the P225 to get good function with hollowpoints. There are also some gunsmiths who know how to change the angle of the feed ramp for reliable function with hollowpoints, as my fuzzy memory has it the P6 uses a 22 degree feed ramp and it needs to be 20 degrees to work well with hollowpoints.They are great little guns but not all P6's will feed hollowpoints reliably.
Hi,What are the dimensions on the P6/P225? I'm looking to swap my XD40 Service for something slightly more concealable and the Sig line of pistols has piqued my interest. Many are a bit outside of my budget, but the P6/P225 fits well. I'm looking for something that is less than the advertised 5.5 inches tall that the XD is.
Also, what's the empty weight of the P6/P225? I know it's a steal frame pistol, so it's likely going to be a bit on the heavy side.
I just noticed the content in your post, that's really informative! thanks!The P225/P6 is currently at the top of my "buy" list. I have researched the P6 feed ramp issue and found the following post on SIGforum ...
"Dear Mr. xxxxxxx,
We checked our drawings and found out that we change the angle of the barrel ramp on the 14th of June 1989 from 52 degrees to 54 degrees.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

So, there shouldn't be any HP feed issues with a P6 made in 1990 (KA proof mark) or later. And, the feed ramp on the older P6's can be modified to reliably feed HP ammo.
