    Not real likely I'll carry it, but....

    ...I got one of the hard-to-find versions of the Sig 226 I didn't have today when it came in as a "we found it in the back" gun from the Sig factory.

    To start this off, no, I only got one. No, I can't get more. Yes, I'm shooting it.

    I came in to do my afternoon orders at the shop today and the owner surprised me with a box from Sig. I'd always wanted a 226 Navy to go with my collection of other 226s, and getting one in without a NSW prefix was a bonus in my book. Not surprisingly, I went into customer mode and filled out the paperwork quickly. ;0

    Like other navy contract overrun guns, it's got the phosphated internals, came with three 15 round phosphated magazines (non-LE marked), and the U serial prefix - it may be the highest I've seen mentioned though.

    Hopefully it shoots as well as my others, but that'll wait for another day.












    Now if I can only find a non-railed version to go with it. It's nice to have as close to a real issue gun as I can get.

    Don't own a Sig, but if I had your luck I would have many. Great find. I wish I could find one.

    Nice Sig! What a find!


    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Beautiful piece! I imagine you are still trying to put your eyes back in their sockets after seeing that on the counter!
