Nice price for the parts kit even though it says out of stock right now. Do you need the whole parts kit or just the recoil spring?
It`s out of stock here aswell, but usually they deliver in 10 to 14 days, or so.
My idea was to do a general maintenancejob on the P226, since I don`t know what the previous owner has done.
I do know that he or she didn`t really take much care about the cleaning job, siince there was lots of crud in there.
I am waiting for my friend, a gunsmith at the german police, to have some time and we will fully dissassemble the p226 for a good clean.
For that I was thinking to change all the springs in the gun.
Mainly just to be on the safe side.
