P226 Mk25...newest edition to the family
 
1 Attachment(s)
I was looking for either an Equinox or a Mk25...this one (Mk25) was on the shelf so I couldn't not buy it! :D

My first Sig...I kept reading the range reports and feedback so I started getting antsy to buy one...I am complete...for the moment. Cleaned/degreased it and managed to fire a box of 50 through it today and I can say that I was not disappointed!

Last weekend, I struggled to hit anything with my Browning...this gun shot well for me and was very controllable under recoil. The sight picture was excellent and I found the trigger to clean and crisp and not overly heavy for a combat weapon. The stock grips were comfortable for me.

I've read that the Sig's can have spare magazines from two suppliers, but I could not see a logo to tell which manufacturer provide my spare mags.

I believe the MK25's only come with Mec-gar mags

Nice weapon, congrats!

Congrats on the new heater. Caution though, buying a Sig leads to buying more Sigs.

Congrats on the addition!

Fordracing is absolutely correct. Congrats on the new gun. You're gonna love it. Any idea what holster you are going to use?

The gun shoots real good and the recoil is light for sure...as far as holsters go, I don't really know what kind of holster. I am not going to CC it, mostly a range gun, maybe home defense....having said that, what holsters, non-CC would you recommend?

Judge 08-19-2013 02:47 AM

I do not CC my mk25 because its just a big handgun. I use an IMI holster for the range and it works really well, but I'm sure there are other holsters that are available. From what I've read, the mk25 typically doesn't work with other p226 holsters because of the rail on the mk25 (trust your research about this instead of relying on mine though)

I'm actually thinking about making the MK25 my first 226 purchase. I have 2 229s and 2 220s. Would y'all recommend the MK25 or another 226 for my first? Another question, can I order a MK25 from factory with a threaded barrel?

X2 on this question. I like the navy model but I REALLY want a threaded barrel on my first 226
