Default Sigs

When I got into handguns after I retired, I kind of gravitated towards Sigs. I found them completely reliable, inherently accurate, and extremely well built. Over the years I discovered many other platforms, especially the 1911, but it seems like I'm coming back to Sig. With the one I picked up on a swap last night, I now have more Sigs than any other make. My one real complaint is they are priced to high - but then again I never pay retail for anything as I get most of my guns via the trade route.

The latest one to find its way to my safe is a P226R in 9mm. Yup, it has a rail & night sights, and it will probably serve as one of my HD pistols. If nothing else, they are great trade bait...

Those are really nice looking. I've never shot a sig. No one I know owns one. If they can afford one they just get a 1911. But, I would like to try one out one day.

I've liked the two I've had, a P6 and a P226. The 226 grip is too wide for my strongside thumb to ride comfortably. The P6 was fine because it's single stack.

They shot accurately and reliably and were pretty stout. I liked them fine, but to buy a gun, I have to sell a gun, so they went.

My P6/225:



My P226:



I love them both, and don't think I could ever part with them. I am a Sig guy through and through.

i like em too. a small gripe i have is all the little wire-like springs to make everything work. i have a p220 45acp. fabulously accurate easy to shoot. they are pretty lightweight for the size. good for carry but makes it harder to get back on target than a 1911. never had a failure with it.

The primary reason I like (DA/SA) Sigs for defensive guns is that once they're chambered & decocked - they are like high capacity revolvers. With the inherent double strike capability they also work well with hard primers...

When I lived near Atlanta, a good friend had 2 of them. Very good shooters but not really a "pure" 1911. They have external extractors and other small differences. I shot one and it was very good...

I've personally never shot one, but a buddy of mine just picked up a 226 that I'd like to try out. He shot it and loves it, so I can't wait to try it. The one I'd really like a chance to shoot is the 238. Ive been looking for something to carry on those hot days here in Florida that doesn't have a 10 lb. really long trigger pull. I fondled one a bit at a local gun store last time I was there and it felt awesome in the hand and had a really nice trigger, so once I get the funds I'll probably pick one up. I know you are really happy with yours NGIB and I'm sure I'll feel the same.

I'm hoping to find a used one in nice condition but we'll have to see how things pan out.

I have three 226’s, a 9mm, .357 sig, and the .40 in the pic, also have a 220 in .45 acp and a 556 rifle.
They are all incredible guns.
I had never owned a plastic gun, so I bought a P250 in .40 (pictured) and was a little disappointed, others I know that have them have only good things to say about them, but mine has had numerous FTF and FTE issues, and when I grip it my L/H thumb rests on the magazine release. Am sending back to Sig to see what’s causing the malfunctions.
