Ha, first post.

Speak of your love for the P226


Mine is my favorite pistol, The balance and the way it shoots far outshine anything else I own or have shot.

I'm a p220 fan myself, but will probably branch and have a p226 at some point.

By the way, if more people show up and want different model forums we can do that.:)

I own 4 220 Sigs and love them all

I have the SIG 220 SAO, the Match 220 SAO, the Stainless 220, plus the Equinox 220. They all are tackdrivers and found them one of the easiest guns to get a great trigger on. None of mine have over a 3.3/4 LBS trigger pull.

Man. Somebody likes his 220's! :shock: I just posted that I don't like Sigs,but maybe the SAO could bring me into the fold...I might have to try it out.

The sig sao is really nice. It's not a 1911 trigger, but it has a real short reset and I think it's one of the best non 1911 triggers out there. I recommend trying it out checking one out anyway. I only have the super match in sao, but at some time I wouldn't mind having one in the carry model.

The Sig P226 .40 s&w was my 1st Pistol, I was using for IDPA, And I got a CPO P226 in 9mm that I shot the Caifornia Prado 2006 State match..(avitar) that was made in 1990 w/ the Carbon Germany made slide that was never even shot for $550 that probbly sat on a LEO Dept shelf for years and was never issued, so they got sent back to SIG SAUER The Mother land and got upgraded with new springs and was sold as CPO (certified pre-ownd )...But SIG People already new that (DUH)...

Back in the '90's, I shot IPSC locally with a P226 in 9mm. I had the slide Hard Chromed by a place here in FL. When I received the gun back, they had bent the extractor. This was the second gun I had them hard chrome, and both came back with problems. I sent the 226 back to Sig in NJ, and they replaced the extractor and did a trigger job...all for $40. Why I ever got rid of that 226 is beyond me. It was the best shooting gun I've ever had. Am hoping to get another in '08.

I really like my Sigs, second only to the 1911 as my favorite combat handgun. I started out with a P226 in 9mm, then I bought a P226 in 40, and sold the 9mm. The guy who bought it shot a target match with it that night and came in second place.

I found a guy on gunbroker that had a parts gun in 9mm so I bought it and put the slide assy on my 40. Even though the ejector is a little different on the 40 it functions just fine shooting 9mm using a 9mm magazine.

A few years back I bought a P220 parts gun. The frame was 100% but the slide looked like someone had learned how to gunsmith on it. I found another P220 parts gun without the frame and put the parts on the original frame. It shot really well but didn't look that great and probably would win the turd award. Recently it was sent off to CCR refinishing and I should have it back any day.

Last spring the guy I sold the Sig P226 9mm put it up for sale. Needless to say it is back in my stable. :biggrin:
