Trigger Question

I snuck away this afternoon and enjoyed some rental guns at the local range. I finished the session with a P226. It was not a Legion, of course, but a very basic model. I liked it and shot it well, but was surprised with the trigger.

First shot DA was all fine. Trigger pull in SA was smooth, but the travel to reset, then travel again to fire seemed really long and not to my liking. I am used to shooting my P320 and like the trigger very much.

I have been seriously considering a P229 Legion, but now I'm concerned that with the DA/SA trigger. I know the Legion has the Grayguns trigger, but how much different should I expect it to be from the stock P226?

it'll have a shorter reset with ggi trigger but reset can be shortened on the standard trigger with the srt kit.

this pic shows gen 1 & 2 but gen 3 is what is being sold thru most vendors.

I think the model you were shooting didn't have the Short Reset Trigger (SRT). The SRT shortens the reset of the Single Action stroke by about 60%.

You'll like a Legion, the trigger on a P226 Legion is incredible.

The trigger reset distance on a standard P226 can be easily and dramatically shortened by installing the SRT (short reset trigger kit). This is not a trigger but a modified sear and safety lever and it is not a terribly expensive modification.

The reset distance can be diminished slightly more by installing a Grayguns P-SAIT trigger, the same trigger that is on the DA/SA P226 Legion. This trigger has an adjustment to eliminate over travel. By doing so, you will reduce the reset by the amount the over travel was eliminated.

The SRT (short reset trigger) is amazing IMO in any Sig. I love my Legion's trigger. A good friend of mine, after owing his MK25 for a year of so, finally installed the SRT kit in his pistol and now he's fallen in love with the P226 all over again. The reset is so short that if you blink, you miss it (embellishing a little)!

If it was a used gun it's probably already smoothed up and the Legion will already have the SRT. Having a couple of Legions to compare to my others I wouldn't invest in the Grey Guns trigger, I really can't tell the difference. The Legions come pretty smooth but not really smoother than my others after use.
The best think I've found for the Sig trigger is shooting H&K's for a while, a forever pull with a wait for it reset, made me really appreciate the Sigs.

Definitely not short reset trigger I'd say. It's just one of the many basic rentals on hand in the shop. Thanks for the good news on the P229 trigger.

The reset on the Legion is about 2mm, the result of the Gray trigger. It's hard to reduce it much more. A trigger job, however, can shorten the pre-travel of the DA pull to about the same 2mm. IMO, that's a real advantage.

The other advantage to a complete trigger job rather than simply installing the short reset trigger is that you can reduce the DA pull to about 8.5 lbs. Mine originally was 11-11.5 lbs, which was doable but not ideal. The SA will go from 4.5 to 3.5 lbs. In other words, the Gray trigger will improve even over its excellent starting point.

Save your money, I bought my Legion sight unseen therefore did not try the trigger. Long story short it is off to Robert Burke to make it decent. A norma P-226 with SRT will do you fine. If you want it smoother get SIGs AEP. If you want the ultimate get The Sig Armour Robert Burke All this a lot less than Legion and will be better.
