Default Sig Sauer P226

First off I haven't been on here in awhile, I hope everyone has been enjoying their holiday season so far. Also I just recently purchased this Sig P226 limited Gadsden. Just wanted to know if anyone else has a Sig in their collection and their opinions on them.

Never owned a sig, but I've rented one at a range and handled many. I love them, nothing fits my hand like a sig does. They're also known for being good reliable guns. I should probably be getting one of those instead of a 1911 because of the way they fit me, but I've got my heart set.

I have a P226 in 9mm.
These are very accurate and high quality firearms, that are fun to shoot.

I love mine....with the E2 grip kit installed.

Sigs are great guns. I've got one of the older, single stack P6s and love it.

Default Sig Sauer P226

I have a Sig 226 E2 with three conversions, .22lr, 9mm, .40 S&W the more I us it the more impressed I get.
The .22 conversion required some break in the two center fire conversions have functioned flawlessly from the first round.
Overall a very satisfactory pistol.

I just brought a used sig p226 home this week. It was made in 95 according to info that I have found. It looks a little rough with missing finish and scratches, but I think it has been carried a lot and shot a little. I can't wait to get to the range with it. That makes two sigs for me...a P239 in .40 and now the P226 in 9mm.

The P226 is one wicked firearm. My nightstand P226 (357sig), with Sig STL-900L laser/light:

P226 E2 9mm, it's my daily carry gun. Bought it this spring, put several hundred rounds through it with no issues. Fits me better than any other pistol I have shot.

Scheme well, scheme often.
Please add "In My not so Humble Opinion" to the end of all my posts. Thank you.

I love the heck out of my 226 Extreme w/g10 grips.Before I bought it I did a bunch of research and found out that if I bought a 40. cal I could buy conversion barrels for 357.sig and 9mm.and this pistol shoots awesome with all three.The only problem with this gun is me.I found out some really cool stuff along the past year like if you don't want to burn money on 40.S&W mags that the 9mm. mags work for all three cals. and I was able to buy two Mec-gar mags for almost the price of one at Greg Cote LLC.That Gadsden you bought is a sweet pistol and I thought hard about buying one untill they came out with the Extreme and it had all the options I was looking for for a pretty good price on top of the fact that you can't convert up.Still it is a great looking model.
