So the weather eased up today and I got out to the range to run 100+ rounds through my new Sig 226 "Navy". Let me just say, all the positive comments about this gun are true. First, the ergonomics are great. I'm not a big fan of the plastic grips, but I plan on replacing them with Hogue's so I'm not concerned. Second the accuracy is amazing. The target in the picture is at about 12 yds. with fairly rapid fire, not taking much time to aim. Even so, it was hard to miss what I was pointing at. Third, the recoil is actually pleasant, very easy to keep on target. fourth, the trigger is awesome. Very light and clean break, takes little effort. Lastly, function, 100 rounds of Rem. UMC and S&B 115 grain FMJ followed by a magazine of mixed Cor-Bon and Hornady 124 grain JHP with zero malfunctions of any kind.

I must say Sig is fast becoming my favorite pistol brand. I know they have gotten some bad press lately, but my 2 Sigs have been top notch and everything that they have built their reputation on.

All have been flawless to every extent.

Congratulations on a great pistol. I've had several Sig's over the years (P220, P228, P250) and they have never let me down.

Fantastic gun. Sigs are just easy to shoot.

In general, I've found the mechanical accuracy of Sigs from the bench to be about as good as it gets in the business, outside of high end 1911s.

And for whatever reason, I've been able to make that mechanical accuracy translate well for me when I shoot them. Plenty of accurate guns that I don't shoot as well I want to. But Sigs have not let me down.

I rented a 9mm P239 recently and was amazed at how little recoil there was. I can imagine the bigger and heavier P226 would be that much better.
