The AirSoft P226 (Tokyo Mauri) is an interesting video.

I am still not clear on how much of it, if any, is a real SIG and how much is the various add-on AirSoft parts.

Any AirSoft folks here that can talk about what you see in the video? It's the second one in the first post.

My biggest problem with AirSoft is that the guns look so real. You or any LEO could easily end up shooting someone thinking it is a real P226.

Hence the legal requirement for some type of red or fluorescent orange tip (see image below)! If anyone paints it black or otherwise removes the red/fluorescent orange, they're just a law-breaking dumba$$ asking to be shot!

Yeah.

I used to brush them off as "mere toys," but after seeing the video... These things are feats of engineering that rival even our pet SIGs

SIG Sauer® P229 Centerfire X - Change Kit Fitting

As you align your glowing front sight with the target in the twilight, your excellent stereoscopic vision briefly visualizes the logo.

"***, dude!

This logo totally sucks!
"
This activity involved an M11-A1, already fitted with a regular (non - Short Reach) trigger, preinstalled factory Short Reset Sear, E2 grips + Mainspring Housing + Strut. The goal was to replace the hokey faux military "M11-A1" Garden Maze Slide with a classic Euro - looking P229 Slide.

Some of these Caliber X - Change Kits sold on Goonbrokaw are there for a reason...

This one, for instance, had major fitting issues! I guess that's what happens when JimBob and BoJack pretend to be Hans und Siegfried...

Like, caramba! No ethics, people nowadays!...

'Muricaaa!

001.jpg

The slide assembly simply wouldn't go beyond a certain point, and was stopped by a very solid "thunk" which could only have been from improper contact between the barrel and locking block.

Process of elimination... Mix and match parts known to fit with those that don't!

M11-A1 Slide + M11-A1 Barrel | M11-A1 Frame: FIT (naturally)
P229 Slide + P229 Barrel | M11-A1 Frame: NO FIT
M11-A1 Slide + P229 Barrel | M11-A1 Frame: FIT
P229 Slide + M11-A1 Barrel | M11-A1 Frame: NO FIT

The M11-A1 and P229 barrels really were identical, and had consistent dimensions after being carefully measured with some really awesome Mitutoyo calipers. Both were labeled as "9mm Para SIG P229-1," and were probably entirely within spec.

It appears that I had just purchased a junker slide!

002.jpg 003.jpg

Luckily, my highly - skilled weaponers quickly took charge of the situation... After trying to force the slide all the way back, "witness marks" resulted on the locking block and feed ramp (the very same part SIG USA likes to attend to on its malfunctioning rifles!).

Not apparent on cursory examination was the fact that the barrel wasn't fully rising into the ejection port, and as a result the feed ramp was bumping into the locking block!

004.jpg

So... How to fit the in - spec barrel to the freakishly deformed slide?

...Why, with a hammer, of course! How else?

Hammering the barrel into the ejection port messes up the Nitron finish at areas with excess metal. More "witness marks!"

005.jpg 006.jpg

All that excess metal should buff out! Cover portions with painter's tape or something similar to prevent scratches on the inappropriate areas. Very important - pay close attention to the Extractor Gap mentioned in the prior post discussing barrel fitting!

Tadaaa!

Does anyone have detailed steps on the complete takedown of the P210?

I have some basic videos as well as armorer PDFs from incar, but they they don't elaborate on a step - by - step takedown...
