With a good suppressor and maybe a binary trigger, this pistol and it’s arm brace could be a poor man’s HK MP5SD, which IMHO would make it an excellent choice for home defense. (If you think this SIG is still pricey, check out what pre-86 HK MP5SDs are going for if you’re in a state that will let you own one even after jumping through all the Federal paperwork hoops!)
It looks cool, but, what’s the point ? Does it perform any better than the typical semi-auto 9mm hand gun ? If it doesn’t why use a gun designed for two hands when you can use one designed for one hand and actually be able to conceal the thing.
One point is having easily/quickly interchangeable 30-round magazines. Which provides significantly more capacity, if needed.
Glock. They make 33 round and a 27 round 9mm magazine that fits all double stack pistols.
