Sig Legion SAO vs Elite SAO?

Is it really worth the price difference? I know worth is subjective but what is your opinion? Is the trigger really that much better on the Legion?

Can't say about the Schweet Legion, but my Elite is my only SRT that I compare it to. It shoots like butter and the reset is right there. Those Legion right out the box are smoking and shoots tight groups. Tough call, but both you won't be disappointed with either. Merry Christmas.

I own both & the Legion SAO trigger is superior imo vs the Elite SAO trigger. I also like the weight of the Legion vs my Elite. The grips on my Elite are pure ***** vs the Legion. I've added the Grays Guns Fat solid guide rod & Hogue G10's to my Elite to help in both those areas. Now they both feel the same except that sweet Legion SAO trigger. I'm on the list at Grays to have him work some magic on my Elite trigger. My Elite is also the SAO RX model. I love both of these pistols & will NEVER part w/ either of them.

Yes. I own both. The legion sao flat trigger is better. The legion (hogue grips) are better. The sights are better.

I like the flat trigger enough I sent my elite sao to the Sig Armorer to have the legion flat trigger installed. My elite sao has aftermarket hogue g10 grips. The stock elite grips are plasticy and flex when you grip them hard. I added the solid guide rod that the legion comes with. And I replaced the sights with Trijicon HDs. The elite ended up costing me more to take the great elite sao and bring it up to the excellent legion sao level.

So you are saying you have a flat Legion trigger in your Elite SAO? This was discussed a while back, but I thought it was never done, or couldn't be done?

I've done everything but the trigger, and then some. X-rays and grip.

It will. It's with the Sig Armorer currently. He is waiting on SIG to ship the parts. Had to switch the trigger bar and safety lever as well for the trigger to work.

It's all a personal thing, depends on the feature set you like best. I like the Elite trigger better myself. But I'd end up replacing the sights and grips of either. The Elite would be a better fit for me. If I hadn't picked up a used X5 tactical last year I'd be on a Elite SAO for sure.

I was all set to buy an Elite sao with the rx - romeo1 sight for $100 more than a legion. After shooting my friends legion, I felt the additions of the Legion package made it enough of a better gun to get it instead. Instead of adding Grips, Xray sights, and a trigger job to the Elite.

So, even though I could have had a red dot P226 for just a little more. It will cost more in the long run to add a mrd to the Legion, but I will do it. Just have to decide if I send my slide out, buy another, or try the Sig kit that replaces the rear sight.

This is basically a range gun for me, so I dont worry about the technical difficulties of a mrd on a pistol with no backup sights.
