Nicest Sig I've ever shot.

And the first double stack version to actually fit my hand!

An acquaintance just got a used sig P226 Legion in 9mm (Single Action Only) and installed a Grey Guns Straight Trigger. He is blessed with Carney Hands like me.

Being pleased with the feel, he wanted me to borrow it and give it a try. Never being much of a Sig fan for the inability to find any of their double stack guns that fit me.........I was dubious.

Lord have mercy! The sucker fits!!!

And shoots well from a bench!

Was also able to hit pieces of clay pigeon on the berm fromoffhand.

I've never fired a single action only Sig before and this was my first experience with a straight trigger on a Sig. wow! It's quite nice!

Don't mean I'm going to run out and buy one. They ain't cheap. But, I can say I finally found a double stack Sig I like.

    Very nice! I like the Legion series. If they ever make the Legion in SAO in 10mm I may have to get one.

    Looks good.

    Most accurate 9mm I ever fired was a Sig P-210 (?) single stack.

    That's a big hunk of serious looking hardware.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Check out the new FN 509 if you like that grip.

    Sweet shooting and pistol! I feel your pain Zee, I can't get around the triggers on a CZ75 or most Sigs either. There was a Sig E2 model a few years ago the I could actally reach and shoot. The Sig rep said it was for small handed folks.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I've never found the 75 to be unfriendly to folks with wee hands. And I have wee hands.

    Never been a CZ fan. Don't really know why

    Love mine - it was either CPJ or Ned who first suggested I try one, and it was love at first shot. But there certainly is no one gun fits all as we all know.

    Need to shoot a CZ75 SAO with a flat trigger and flat aluminum grips. Much more carnie hand friendly!
    I'll have to scrounge one up and try. I can appreciate them, I love their rifles.

    Here to give you an idea about my carnie hands....

    Well done! I've never been a Sig fan, but I cant deny they work. Results speak for themselves.

    Exactly why I went from SIGs to Glocks for my working guns. The SIG "Classic" models (P226, P228, etc.) are wonderfully made examples of German engineering, and I carried a 228 regularly. One day I shot a buddy's G19, his EDC, and fell in love. It was as surgically accurate as my P228 with little to no muzzle flip.

    So the SIGs went bye-bye and I went to Glock, then M&P.
