Default Sig Sauer P226 COMBAT -- FANTASTIC!!!!

Finally got my new Sig Sauer P226 COMBAT variant out to my gun club and gave it it's first shake down cruise, and it performed flawlessly. Unlike the P226 I bought my son a couple of years ago this one did NOT come with the cheap/crappy Checkmate mags, but real-deal "Made in Italy" MecGar magazines. Sweet.

Here's the video:


Designed to meet, and exceed, rigorous military standards, the P226® Combat performs like no other 9mm available. Each pistol features the military's Flat Dark Earth finish on its alloy frame and SIG's Nitron® finish over a stainless slide. Internal parts and controls are phosphated for extreme corrosion resistance and reduced friction while the barrel is hard chromed and finished in Nitron® which easily passes the military's accuracy requirements. The P226 Combat also passes the military's 240-hour salt spray corrosion test. Additional features include a M1913 Picatinny rail, vertical front strap serrations and SIGLITE® night sights.

Happy to here about the mags. I tell you what...there is something about the Zen of a P226. The world seems alright when you are shooting it. Keep up the good work on your vids. I have watched them all.

Looks like you got another fine weapon! Glad to hear the mags are good ones too. I also have watched all of your vids. I really enjoyed your Glock 20 vid with the buffalo bore ammo and all of the smoke. Looks like great fun.

I don't know. The pistol was brand new....came with two MecGars. When I bought my son his P226 a couple years or so ago, it came with the crappy Checkmates.

go figure...no idea why some would come with Checkmate others don't.

Any chance that they are sent from Germany with MecGars?

I noticed the frame on mine specifically says, "Made in Germany" ... my son's P226 does not.
