    I bought it solely on the "cool factor" of the pistol. Took it to the range today and I have to say I hate it. Maybe I'm just so used to the Glock/XD trigger, but I couldn't hit anything with it in DA or SA. At 15 yards, I shoot my 29 great, my 27 very well.

    I even shoot my Kahr P9 way better.

    Sig guys, that am I doing wrong?!?

    It's all metal, so you can still make some use out of it. Use it as a brick and hit someone with it.

    When my 29 runs out of ammo, I'll throw it like a boomerang.

    This is all my opinion, but the P226 and P229 are some of the best pistols around IMO. Once you master the DA/SA trigger the accuracy is fantastic, the shoot-ability is great and reliability is excellent. Also both come in 357 sig.

    Here's my strategy for mastering the DA/SA trigger: shoot primarily in DA, slow fire, and decock after every shot for at least half to 2/3 of your range session, every time. Works for me!

    It's not the Sig. You just need to spend some time at the range. Get some snap caps and practices trigger pull at home, it makes a huge difference.

    Gratz on a great pistol.

    Your Sig is most likely just a lemon. Pm if you wanna sell it. I'll take it off your hands.

  13. I have the same problem. It's just that you're used to the Glock trigger. I can group my Glock well. I can't with the Sig. Not the arrow, it's the Indian.

    I would venture to guess that the problem lies not with the pistol but with the shooter. My 229 9mm is one of the best shooting pistols that I own. As others said, just spend some trigger time with it and congrats on your new Sig.....I guess.

    Consider mastering this weapon a challenge. I have purchased my share of pistols that I didn't naturally shoot well. But when I challenged myself and basically relearned to shoot with a new weapon, I became a better shooter overall. My old standby, good shooting pistols, (1911) I could shoot even better after mastering a new pistol.

    Easiest solution for the DA/SA trigger?


    Convert it to DAK, obviously. :whistling:


    OP, definitely practice with it more. Coming from a Glock, you'll need trigger time to get used to a hammer fired sidearm. In DA, concentrate on a slow, smooth, almost "rolling" trigger squeeze - don't try to stage the trigger. Personally, I very much prefer the DAK trigger in a SIG. However, even that takes some getting used to, along with some time shooting and dry firing it to let the parts get nice and worn in.
