My new pistol. I love it

Will be shooting it tomorrow. man this thing is a beauty (to me at least). then again, the only other pistols in service calibers I've had were various glocks, so this may be why I think it's a beautiful pistol.

Since my EDC is a G19, I don't think it'd be too hard to CC this. I know it weighs a bit more, but still think it's doable. Anyone else carry something similar in size/weight?

I predict you will love it. Sigs are certainly among the best!

I carry a HK45C on the weekends that I think is similar in size and weight without a problem.
A good holster and belt make a lot of difference.
In dress cloths, during the week, I switch to a P2000SK.

Awesome, thanks Barth! I run an MTac holster and a CBST gun belt. so the belt should be stiff enough to hold up the gun. just ordered an MTac for the 226.

I really like those grips. I can understand why you are excited.

For a decade or so daily I carried a P226 first in 9mm and then in .40.

You'll be just fine.
Get ready to enjoy carrying your new gun.
And Congratulations.
I've got a Sig P220/45 and a P239/357 myself.
Fine weapons indeed.

Thanks guys ! I'll follow up with a range report tomorrow. I'm sitting on quite a few Speer lawman and wwb. So I'll run a few hundred through this gun tomorrow.

Eh alright so range report.....

I brought 400 rounds total, 200 speer lawmen, 100 WWB, 50 monarch, and 50 american eagle.

I started with the hottest - Speer. I got 2 failure to extract + double feed with this. (a spent shell was left in the breach, while the slide tried pushing another round in)

I had my range buddy try this, to rule out the shooter, and he got one with the speer as well. So at this point I'm pretty concerned, but still haven't ruled the ammo out. We switch to monarch, which fired all 50 fine, then went to WWB and AE. I got another 2 failure to extract and double feed the same way.

I know since it's brand new sig's warranty should cover this and make things right, but what could this be? The extractor? Or an out of spec chamber? I verified the extractor claw was grabbing all the non-fired rounds just fine.... If anyone can help me out with this I'd appreciate it.


Also - Does anyone know off hand what sig's customer service number is? I can google it later, just figured I'd ask here as well. Thanks.

Both my Sigs (P220/P239) eat any ammo like candy.
I've shot over 1000 hot LE Speer GDHP and Winchester Ranger T-Series without an issue.

My P220 45 I've owned since 1998 and lost count of how many rounds fired.
I do only shoot quality brass ammo.
But have never ever had a FTF, FTE or light primer strike with it.

A NIB Sig should run on Speer GDHPs right out of the box.
I would send the weapon back to the mother-ship pronto.

Nice looking P226! Sorry to hear you are having some problems.

I have to ask though did you clean and lube your new P226 before going to the range?? If not you should do such and be sure to lube the frame rails and barrel exterior well. Alloy frame SIGs like to run well lubed. They do not need to be dripping wet but the entire length of the frame rail on each side and barrel exterior should be visibly covered with lube. I use either Slide Glide grease, Weaponshield CLP, or M-Pro 7 LPX though there are plenty of other great lubes available.

Also if you did break down and clean your new P226 know that the recoil spring goes tight end onto the guide rod first.

I did the rails with EWL. you're saying I should have lubed the chamber, too?

Beautiful gun and Congrats! Sorry you're having some issues with it. I'm sure they will straighten it out. My brother had a similar problem with his SigPro at first, but after I disassembled it and lubed it again, it ran like a top. Good luck with yours.
