    I agree it is a nice gun. I don't like the stock stamped metal trigger. Mine is a P6 so it isn't a P225 per se, even though they are the same exact gun with minor differences. I keep looking at a P225 NIB at my LGS for 800, but can't justify spending 800 on it when I have the same exact gun already. If I had an extra 800, hands down, buy it in a heart beat.

    First describe the properties that make the SRT an "awesome trigger."

    The SRT was developed primarily for the double stack magazine pistols because of the long reach to the trigger. Single stackers like the P225/P6 don't need it.

    I know, I know, the SRT trigger came on the P239 which is a single stacker. But that's why lots of people didn't like the P239. SRT trigger on a gun that doesn't need it acts as a bane and not as a boon. I don't care much for my P239 just because of that damn SRT trigger.

    From what I've heard the DA and SA is very crisp and the reset is very short. I have no experience with it and was hoping to try it out. I did short stroke my P6 once or twice tonight.. The reset is longer than the reset on my Glocks.

    Also, everyone who writes anything about it has good things to say. I think I've only seen one negative comment. But, this is the "internet".

    What many seem to recognize is that unless you are a competition shooter, few are able to acquire/re-acquire the next target quickly enough to leverage the short reset attribute.


    This is a standard SRT kit.

    Depending on who installs the SRTt and the other associated action work, it can actually increase trigger creep. There are many reports of this by other SIG owners.

    Knowing this, last year I had a Competition Action Package that included a proprietary SRT installed in my P226ST by one of the finest SIG pistolsmiths in the country. Not only is the reset shorter, but creep was reduced to almost a 1911 break.

    Here it is after I also had the tac rails removed, Dawson fiber optic sight, Warren Tactical rear sight and Superblack finish.

    If you are short stroking your P6, then the SRT might be a good option for you. Some folks have had a new hammer fitted along with the SRT sear for compatibility reasons; so you might wnat to keep that in mind.

    Best of luck.

    My question to the OP was rhetorical since many hear "SRT" without actually knowing what it is.

    In fact, some folks thought they ordered a short reset trigger but were so confused or misinformed that they actually ordered and installed a SHORT TRIGGER. :supergrin:


    So not only was the reset unchanged, but the trigger press was compressed. :rofl:

    That is a slick P226. Very nice. Who did the frame work?

    Cobra, is it worth the $100 plus shipping it costs to install? For a carry gun, or should I just train, adjust, and shoot the gun proper?

    Thanks. It really was slick after I Flitzed the slide slats. :supergrin:

    Seriously, I had the entire gun gone over with the owner of Grayguns under whom I've trained several times. I asked him to turn my old beat up P226ST with 20k rounds on the clock to look like current production German stainless steel P226 SL (still in production but not imported), and also work the trigger action to his competition specification standards.

    Six months later and $600 is what you see in the post above. Upon completion of the project, Grayguns told me that he won't do any more tac rail removal work.

    There is another outfit that also does excellent frame work:

    Cheers.

    Thanks. Glocks are excellent weapons, very reliable and an excellent value, but the grip angle doesn't work for me, and all my HD and SD pistols are DA/SA SIGs. I want the manual of arms (controls) all the same for serious work.

    My 1911s are relegated primarily to target shooting.

    Yes he is. I posted an article here yesterday where he discussed the geomtery and physics of shortening a pistol.

    Here's and example of his 1911 work:

    He also worked on the development of the Devel Gannon. (I challenged Bac to buy one of these. :rofl: )

    I don't think that there is enough demand for them to release one for the P225. Having said that I shot a P220 with the SRT and really like it, but not enough to send mine in to have it done. I might if I could buy the kit myself and install though...

    Yea, the $60 for shipping is keeping me from doing it.
