Here's a pic of my favorite 9mm...a SIG SAUER P226...made in West Germany in 1988, which I bought used for $400 off a friend whose brother ( deceased ) had carried it alot and shot it little. I just swapped out the original recoil and firing pin springs with a Wollf 15lb (factory standard) package.



The P226 was designed for entry into the XM9 Service Pistol Trials (Joint Service Small Arms Program), which were held by the US Army in 1984 on behalf of the US Armed Forces to find a replacement for the M1911A1. Only the Beretta 92F and the SIG P226 satisfactorily completed the trials. According to a GAO report, Beretta was awarded the M9 contract for the 92F due to better durability during endurance testing and a lower total package price. The P226 cost less per pistol than the 92F, but SIG's package price with magazines and spare parts was higher than Beretta's. The Navy SEALs, however, chose to adopt the P226 later.

Nice pistolas guys. I don't have any Sigs......yet. Too cheap to buy one.:D
I bought my P6/225 West German police turn in for $269.00 when they 1st showed up. Came w/ hard case, Leather original duty holster, frog for holster to make it a hip tactical style, 2 mags, and I chose a pistol that had gone back to Sig for an overhall, as opposed to a strait turn in. If you look at the P6's above and this one, notice the cut out on the hammer. There are similar cutouts on other parts. They are intended to be used w/ a feeler gauge to make sure the parts are still within spec.

I love my Sig Sauer P-220. It was my duty weapon for about 5 years until we Switched to the Glock department wide.

I don't know what to tell you. I don't own a CZ but they are mighty fine firearms. I do own a Sig and I love it. See if you can rent a Sig at a shooting range and see if you like it.

Get the SIG...

The SIG SAUER® P226® is the pistol that set the standard by which all other combat handguns are measured. The exceptional ergonomics and balance make this full size pistol easy to handle. Its longer barrel yields better ballistic performance and accuracy. The P226 MK25 is identical to the pistol carried by the U.S. Navy SEALs-( NSWG...Naval Special Warfare Group ). The railed P226 chambered in 9mm and engraved with an anchor on the left side of the slide is the official sidearm of the SEALs.







P226 MK25 features
  • Nitron-coated stainless steel slide
  • Black hard coat anodize aluminum frame
  • Anti-corrosion coatings on controls and internals
  • UID identifi cation label
  • SIGLITE® Night sights
  • Custom engraved anchor on slide
  • Integral MIL Spec 1913 accessory rail
  • Certificate of Authenticity with each pistol

And it was only 10 years after the CZ 75 was introduced.;)

Same thing they say about CZ.

Huh, that's odd. The CZ 75 barrel is longer.
And has won a LOT more competition shoots, I'd bet.:p


Not that the Sig isn't a REALLY good pistol, just saying I wouldn't say one is better than the other, except in terms of personal preference.:)

Personal preference is a huge factor with Sig, just as it is with Glocks for some people. Every Sig going back to the 1970's has the controls in the same place, breaks down to clean the same way, and is 100% reliable. I have yet to have any FTFeed, FTE, FTFire with any sig. That little P230 PPK I have can empty 7 rounds in 1.5 seconds. That is with my old stiff bugger hook on the trigger. Those are on target shots!
I also like 1911's. Not a huge fan of the 92 series, but that is a new thread.

Do you have so many guns you forget what you have? Is it wise to post serial numbers online?

I've got 4 houses with safes in them all. As soon as I can find/deliver/install a big enough safe, I'll have them under two roofs. As far as the second question, you are correct....just lazy.
