    It's a Sig. Of course it's worth buying. Still prefer the 226. There are others just as worthy. CZ-75 comes to mind.

    Max Michelle seems to do ok with one. Lena Miculek too.

    The Sig Sauer P320 - that may or may not have actually cinched the deal? Doesn't do a thing for me personally, having Sig's typical overly high bore axis. Comfy enough on the grip, but pretty much consider Glock to be building the superior beast.

    Now if it was a Sig P210. . .

    It has my attention. The modular system is a smart choice for an entity working in such large quantities as the US Army. I've handled a civilian version and the trigger is OUTSTANDING. Far better than any Glock or M&P trigger I've ever tried, to include the Apex units in my M&Ps.

    I'm about 80% convinced to switch personally.

    It's a little fat, bore axis not so much of a problem for me as they shaved some mass off with them slanted reliefs they cut on the slide to reduce flip, but with a frame for something like $30 REALLY has me stroking my chin about it.

    we used 226's in the TEAMS in the 90's. had to rework them at 10,000 rounds.
    can only imagine why army would go to a gun company requiring so much upkeep............

    Yeah. . .but the P226 with the Navy SeAL K-Kote that washed off in a hard rain or flaked off in a stiff breeze would be a museum piece for either (a.) Gen-1 paint finishes or (b.) an example of how NOT to do one.

    I would think that you have to rework about any military weapon at 10K rounds. That's a lot of lead downrange. When I was a CO of a training company, we had our M 16s re-done twice a year.

    Define "rework." Somehow getting new springs and some small parts at 10K rounds doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Spring kit and guide rod once a year on a striker fired gun is the way to go unless it's a safe queen.

    And the Teams are known for being exceptionally hard on their weapons. They're the ones that broke the M9 back in the day with NATO+ loadings.
