    I like the p226 elite SAO. But you've got to decide if you want DA/SA, DAO or SAO I like the 1911 style and function of the elite SOA but if you don't like manual safeties then cross that model off the list.

    I have my eye on either a MK25 or an M11-A1.

    Finding holsters is an issue with the MK 25 due to its rail size.

    I believe that pretty much all P226 SA/DA functions exactly the same. The only difference is the finish and exterior features. As the number of bells and whistles increases, the price goes up with it. On the higher end models, it may also come with the SRT (Short Reset Trigger) so it might feel a bit different than your usual SA/DA trigger.

    In the end, it all depends on which feature and look/feel you are after. It also depends on availability of the particular model.

    I am a bit of a utilitarian when it comes to my weapons, but I have had my eye on the Sig 226 Elite stainless, or the 226 scorpion. They are both sweet looking guns.

    As a big fan of my current 229 Elite Dark, I'd switch it up... just a little. My vote goes to the 226 Elite Stainless.

    Have an old JJ code P226 made in W. Germany. Simple design, but probably one of my favorite guns to shoot.

    I'm kinda in the market for a P226. My EDC is a P239 and I like the DA/SA with the Sig de-cocker. I really like the Sig slow de-cocker...most of the others I have tested are just a button that you push and "snap", it's de-cocked. Those types scare me.

    P226 Navy/Mk.25 or just a standard P226R. They are all good.
