I had it in my head that my first polymer duty-sized pistol would be one or the other. The latte drinking, plaid shirt wearing hipster in me wanted the CZ, but I went home with the Sig instead.

The 2022 started out life as the P2340 in 1999. At the time, Glock’s polymer framed striker-fired pistols were cutting into Sig’s share in the military and law enforcement world.
