    Well I finally jumped on the Sig Wagon

    Strolled into the gunshop today with a buddy of mine in search of a P226. It was a pure madhouse (Bud's Gunshop). It looked like someone has robbed the place, and everyone had to take a number and get in line. Luckily I found what I was looking for, and hovered over it like a vulture on a corpse. I must say as a die hard Glock fan, that this weapon is the total package, the fit and feel are just what I was looking for in a sidearm. It came w/ three sig 15rd mags as well

    Very nice. I see the anchor. Does that make it the naval edition Sig had out for awhile that had the specially coated parts? Cant remember what the coating was.Or am I thinking of a different Sig?


    Oops didnt see where you said Navy edition. I got excited over the picture. Sorry.

    Congratulations, Tyler! Warning! Sigs are as addicting as Glocks....this may be your first, but it won't be your last. Best wishes; enjoy it for many years to come.

    Nice! What was the damage to your wallet (if you don't mind divulging)?

    It won't work properly until you take a dip with it in salt water, preferably while wearing a rebreather and black wetsuit.
    Nice Navy P226.

    Damage to his wallet was significant, as it always is with SIGs.

    But well worth it.

    I have four of the darn things. And I love 'em all. A pair of 229s, a 238, and a 220. Now I need to get a 226.

    OP, very well done.

    Well I finally jumped on the Sig Wagon

    Congrats on the new acquisition!

    I recently jumped on the same wagon with the same model. It's such a complete package, it was too hard to pass up. Feels great in the hand and the action is butter smooth. I haven't made a range trip yet, but will soon hopefully.

    Nice looking gun. I wouldn't even want to carry that gun. Since it is a special edition.

    I had a P226 Eqinox a while ago and loved it. A bit too big for carrying in the SC summer so I reluctantly sold it. It was the best and nicest looking gun I ever owned. Nice choice. You will love it.

    It dinged it a bit, but this is something I have wanted for awhile. Sometimes "buy once, cry once" needs to be applied
