    Talking Just got a Sig 226 ST and a Norinco 1911A1C

    Life is good!!!
    In the last seven days I received in the mail a gunsmith prepped Norinco 1911A1C and a Stainless Sig 226 in 9mm, I am hoping to christen them both this weekend!!

    The 1911 has a nice clean trigger and I think the gunsmith also installed a recoil buffer but am not sure. The fit of the gun is quite nice and grips are decent for a Norinco, although I have set of Hogues for it, but will try it stock first. The finish is fine, but not as nice and glossy as the NZ-85b, this is a pure utility gun. Later I might add a nicer beaver tail, the stock one is a bit sharp on the edges. The sights will need replacing, but the bank account needs replenishment first!

    The all stainless Sig is gorgeous, like all Sigs, it fits the bigger hand nicely, sights are easy to see. Will get night sights later. The stainless finish is sort of a matte, rather than shiny. Compared to the NZ or even the CZs, this is simple to rack the slide, big and well grooved. Trigger feels good. Since I have cut my teeth on Norinco trigger and sights, this is a big step up for me. I still plan to keep the NZ-85b and will shoot all three.

    Need to get a middle of the road holster for the Sig, any suggestions in the $50-70 range?


    I am one happy camper!!!

    Colin, as a fellow 226 ST owner I congratulate you - one super nice gun. I think it is Tom also who carries one. I had mine already fitted with night sights and they are good - also nice to add CT grips, partly for laser but also the feel with those grips is awesome.

    Mine lives daily in a K&D Defender rig - OWB and holds real tight - ideal for me. Check on Kevin's site for options and prices - should be about manageable and I recommend it if OWB would suit you.

    Meant to say too - no personal experience with Norinco 1911 but have heard some quite favorable feedback and IIRC not a lot of negatives.

    Just three weeks ago, I bought a Sig P226R with Crimson Trace laser grips. Absolutely love it! I'm sure you will enjoy yours, too! Just ordered a holster from K&D, an Anaconda Eagle Defender OWB; can't wait but quality takes time! Shoot safe!

    Congratulations, Colin. Both sound like good choices. Nothing I have ever bought feels as good as a new gun. Enjoy them.

    Congrats on your acquisitions. As Chris mentioned, I carry a P226ST daily. I started out with a Safepacker (Wilderness Tactical), which has served me very well OWB for some situations, and I will continue to use it for camping and hiking after my Max Con V arrives. I added a used Galco NSA II for IWB, and it does OK, for now. Can't wait for my Max Con V and VI, though.

    Well the bank account will have to wait for the CT grips and nite sights, how about the Gold trigger and hammer offered on the Sig Sauer site?

    Forget the gold ''bling'' - IMO adds nothing to function and just puts money in an area with little benefit.

    Save for the sights and get them when you can - be worth it.

    You just got yourself one of the finest combat handguns in the world. IMHO, it speaks for itself. Save your money.
