    Thumbs up Go SIGARMS! (and other musings)

    During the recent SHOT Show, I met a California-based SIGARMS rep. We were chatting about the SIG 556 carbine and when it will be available under the LE individual officer program which is similiar to the Glock military/LE program: direct sales of weapons without agency letterhead from LE/military stocking dealers (in the case of Glock) and directly (maybe from dealers?) from SIGARMS, again, minus letterhead.

    Well, I informed the guy that I was issued a P229 and that I wished we were issued P229's with DAK triggers. I'm a big fan of the DAK trigger.

    The conversation drifted to my appreciating the accuracy of the P229, but not the weight of the gun or the length of the DA trigger. He suggested I get a short trigger; I responded that I've requested one from my agency months ago, but they've not completed my request.

    No problem he said.....give me your business card and I'll send you one....free of charge.....

    ....well, I got it today!

    I sent him a thank you e-mail and requested the name and e-mail address of his boss to pass on my appreciation. He said, that wasn't needed and glad he could be of help.

    Now that was cool!

    Oh.....on my SHOT thread, I mentioned C&S's .45 ACP custom 1908....they have a video on their website:

    Wild, huh?

    By the way Bill Laughridge is a great guy....very humble and eager to chat with folks....another gunsmith I found to be the same way is Marc Morganti of Gemini Custom. Laughridge, who worked on my first gun, my BHP Mark II 9mm 20 years ago, will be getting her back for upgrading.....Morganti, cause I like the guy and he does stunning work, will be getting my S&W 65 .357 Magnum for some work as well.

    Who's the lucky dude then !

    Nice result, for sure.

    I really want to try a DAK but so far no luck - altho my DA/SA SIG stable is still good enough.

    Chris, the short trigger would be a good addition to your P226. I hadve the 226 with the stock trigger, and had it replaced with a short one (which is mainly utilized for people who have shorter fingers) thus the "short trigger" not to mention, it's easier to shoot the gun as well. Feels MUCH better than the stock one..

    I had one on my first duty gun, a P228. It's a necessary addition for us "digitally challenged" folks.

    I'm jealous. You are a lucky guy.

    That trigger should make shooting that P229 easier and more accurate. Enjoy it.

    Bob - I have large hands and no problems over trigger reach and so - really just curious to try DAK one day.

    I get on well with the stock 226 trigger and hardly notice the longer DA pull these days on first shot.

    SIG sort of has the reputation of doing things in a good way that people don't expect, especially in the way of repairs. Seems like there is an entry similar to yours on the SIG Forum almost daily.

    Hey srfl,

    I'm a certified Sig armorer. Installing the short trigger isn't really that hard, but the DAK disassembly is a little different than the DA/SA.

    If you decide to try it I'd be happy to help with instructions or walk you through it.

    BTW, I've got a 229R DAK too, and love it.

    Mick
