    I'm considering getting the Navy P226 as a range pistol and am wondering what the personal experiences with this model (P226) are. I'm hoping to get it in .40S&W but can settle for 9mm.

    I'm absolutely thrilled with mine. They don't come in .40 just so you know. It's an exact replica. So that includes only one caliber choice. Only thing is, the trigger wasn't an srt. So I ordered a srt kit from sig and couldn't be happier. It's my favorite gun so far. (And that's favorite out of multiple 1911's sigs glocks etc. ) go for it!!

    From what the Sig website, Cabelas and Wiki say, it comes in (P226 Mk 25 aka P226 Navy) 9mm and in fact it twas the P226 TacOp that came in 9mm, .40S&W and .357SIG. My bad, but I'd still get it in 9mm mostly because of the anti-corrosion coatings on controls and internal components. The only problem I have with the Mk25 is that it starts at 1,142.00 but it DOES carry a 15 round mag which I like, and bullets are cheap. Anyone see a P226 for less than 990.00 USD?

    Aye carumba! And yes I know that's not how you spell it lol what was the mag count and limit ie 12 round or 15 round or did you buy an extended mag of 20?

    I was also looking at the Sig site and they said the Navy model was discontinued (the same model US NCIS used) but the US Navy SEAL P226 Mk25 is still round and basically the same as the Navy model.

    Before sandy hook and this buying craze you could. I picked up a P226 Combat TB for $909 off GB NIB. They are also phosphate coated.

    Yes I knew about the special water resistant coating on the pistol since the SEALs were bringing these pistols underwater they kinda have to be lol so there isn't and P226 in general that is less than $990.00 USD?

    If you like the cool factor of having a SEAL version then go for it. If it is just going to be a range gun and wont be exposed to harsh conditions then a normal p226 will suit you just fine and will save you a couple of hundred dollars. If it were me and I had the money I would buy the SEAL version just to say I own one :)

    I could care less about the SEALs to be honest, there have been longer and better serving Spec Ops, Black Ops and Tier 1 unit than the SEALs, the reason I'm wanting that specific model is how it's made, what it's made with and the known reliability of the trigger since its set different from the combat, TacOp and normal P226. (And lighter)

    Well then it looks like a p226R SRT is the choice for you.

    Outside of Chicago, GatGuns had a fewP226 .40 on display earlier in the week and a 9mm Nitron in the back for about $835. Midwestguns also had a couple on display last week. Both do transfers.

    The MK25 does not come with a SRT (short reset trigger) so I'm not sure what you are talking about in comparison to the P226 Combat. The MK25 comes with a fat trigger (standard trigger) and the Combat comes with a Short Trigger. DA/SA pulls are the same between the two.

    SIG firearms are a bit pricey but worth the cost IMO. The SRT is worth the cost to upgrade as well. Get it done by SIG and you'll keep the lifetime warranty that comes with it too

    Check out the SIG M11-A1 as well it's a bit smaller (think P229) and has similar markings and coatings to the MK25 but has the SRT trigger installed already I believe. It's the same gun issued to the elite forces if you want the cool factor.

    You're right it was the P226 Elite that I was thinking of that has the SRT. But as much as I would love to look at other Sigs, M11 or the P228, I prefer the P226, plus, the P228 comes with 13 round mag in 9mm and the P226 Mk25 come with 15 round mag.

    You are wrong about the trigger. In fact, since the trigger bar and associated components are phosphate coated, they will have at the very minimum, a worse trigger than a standard 226. If you knew anything about guns you'd know that phosphate coatings have a rough texture to them.

    You can get mecgar 228 mags with 15 rounds flush fit.
