View Full Version : New Sig

Picked this up this afternoon.

Did a quick clean and lube of the internals and the trigger feels pretty good dry firing.

I've got 500 rds to run through it on Sunday so I will have a range report after that. Better pics will follow too.

The local shop had a Sig sale about two months back and the rep from Sig showed me his personal Blackwater Tactical and I thought it was a mighty impressive pistol at least from my cursory inspection. Congrats on your new acquisition!

I love my P226ST. (all stainless version of a P226)

I took it out to the range this AM and ran 250 rounds through it without any issues, 150 115 gr FMJ, and 100 124 gr +P Hollow points. It was dead nuts accurate, has a great trigger. It's made in the USA and has a born on date of 6/29/2009. It came with a hollow steel guide rod and acts like the chorman 226 I had about 10 years ago.

I see everyone knocking current Sigs but this one lives up to my expectations, I really like the sights especially the front one.

I tore it down before shooting it and carefully lubed it the same way I did my old 226.

What is a chorman 226?

Check the recoil spring, make sure it is the triple strand type that SIG is "known" for. For a while they were shipping these out with a single strand spring (mine come with a single strand). I made a call to their tech guys who sent out the correct recoil spring right away.

Chorman German

Normal Stranded Sig type spring

Nice! Just wondering why the slide does not state "Blackwater USA"
