Sig 220 slide/barrel on a 226 frame?

Will it work? Or can I just change the barrel?
Just checking.

I dont think it will work one is single stack frame to double stack and barrel is too wide for a 226 frame I think

What cartridge do you hope to use for the hybrid?

You can't make the P226 into a 45ACP or 38 Super. The frame is too short for the cartridge.

Aside from that.....the P226 slide is about .010" wider on the inside rail. I would not have guessed this, however; the P226 slide will fit on the P220 frame BUT! the 9mm barrel ramp overhangs the P220 frame ramp which will make it a jam-o-matic without more detailed modification.

The P220 slide does not fit the P226 frame.

I was wanting a .45.
What slide and barrel would fit a 9mm 226?
After thinking about it I would say a .40 or a .357.

This is the niche that the 45GAP was dreamed up to solve. Mags would require some thought.

SIG has the P227: https://www.sigsauer.com/products/fi.../pistols/p227/
