    Anybody else tried SIGs SRT trigger?

    I recently had a SRT (short reset trigger) installed on my P220. I am very impressed with the way this trigger feels. After you hear that reset "click", there is virtually no travel before the hammer drops. For $35, I think they are well worth the money.

    I am not sure of this is a fairly new trigger system that SIG is putting on their new models or not, but I am very impressed. Anybody else have experience with them?

    I had one installed in my P226 .40 and it is fantastic. Resets almost immediately making followup shots as fast as my 1911s.

    To make everyone jealous. I sent my P226 to SIG for an action job and SRT. It came back in a hard case with an invoice that said," SRT installed, enhanced action completed. Repair! NO CHARGE!" I stared for about 60 seconds, smiled and took it home. I have no idea why and do not care.

    I have them in my 220 and 228, and love 'em. 35 is the armorer price. I paid about 15 for each of mine and installed it myself. Street price for the parts and install is over 100.

    Well, sure, I can do that.

    So what was your impression of the SRT?

    I really like it. It makes the reset very much like the Glock, maybe even a little shorter. Follow up shots are much quicker and smoother, but it took sometime to get used to again, its fast! I don't recommend them for somebody with poor trigger control.

    Interesting you should say, "I don't recommend them for somebody with poor trigger control." A guy told me he observed some guys shooting SRT's in a class, and they were having trouble with second shots that were suppose to be one shot.

    So you just ordered them from SigArms?

    CDNN has a good deal on the trigger:

    They had black listed for less earlier but I think they're out for the 226. What other parts do I need?

    Thanks.

    Is this the same trigger that comes with the "Elite" series?

    It isn't a different trigger. The name is a misnomer. The parts that are actually changed are the sear, the safety lever (which is the internal part that cams against the firing pin block when the trigger bar moves rearward), and for the P239 a different trigger bar spring.

    There is a significant difference between a short trigger and a short reset "trigger".

    The SRT is fantastic. I got to run the prototype parts through a P226 for months before they went into production and they worked perfectly.

    The SRT was developed in response to CHP demanding a short reset for their last pistol procurement ('07?). The very first prototype had a reset so short we mistakenly thought the hammer was slipping during dry cycling. What was in fact happening, though, was that the trigger reset was so short that it was simply able to move forward enough by compressing the skin of the trigger finger pad and reset!

    Ahhh, thanks!

    I'm new to the SIG world. I've read elsewhere also that this is a great mod to do. I'll have to put it on my list of SIG mods/stuff to get. I just spent about $250 on mags, grips and sights so it may have to wait.
