    I made the following video as an introduction to the Sig Sauer P226 including a history of its developments, its features, how to field strip it and a shooting demonstration, along with a summary of results with the particular pistol featured in the video.

    Ahh the p226. People either love them or hate them. I like it. Gotta love the grip just wish it was a little thicker.

    I know it's not the same gun but kind of is, I just got my daughters a mosquito and these guns are amazing. I put 500 rounds of 36 grain federal hollow points through it and not one single failure. Perfect

    Get the hogue finger groove grip for it. Makes it thicker and it fits like a glove. I feel like I can't let it go.

    I just recently bought my 226 and my grip didn't come with screws. If you need screws and have a newer model, the p226 grip screws from the hogue website are too short. They ended up sending me some for p229 which ended being too long and wouldn't allow the mag to slide in. I ground them down a touch and everything works perfectly

    Oh great! Thanks for the info. I just told my buddy about them. I'll have to share that info with him. Lucky for him I'll do the fitting work for free.

    No problem. Hogues cs is pretty outstanding. Check the thread I started about it. Worked with me continuously to get the grip fitting right. Even sent me a free grip after a couple different problems. Now i have an extra one I'm considering modifying.

    See how it sticks out a little further on the left? It causes my thumb to be unable to reach the decocker and the slide release unless I change my grip to stretch my thumb. I want to sand the other grip down a bit and see if it will help out any.

    Oh wow. I'd almost think that was setup for a south paw.

    I love my new P226. In fact I love all of my Sig firearms.
