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 include the P226 in their arsenal of weapons.

p220 euro .45, p6, and a p232



p239 .40



I also have a 522 heavy barrel that I love! It is much more accurate than I ever thought it could be.

Had a hard time finding a good holster for my Sig SEAL MK25 but Crossbreed made a snapslide for me and it arrived today and the Sig with that true 1913 picatinny rail fits perfectly in it.

Mrs 3T highly suggested I show her "Pink Lady" Sig P238, so here she is.

Sig P938 Grips

My "Birdseye Maple" grips arrived today and were an easy install.
Sure changed the look of the SIG 938 9mm. ;)
