    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.

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