Can short reach trigger be switched for standard reach among all P series Sig's?

Have a buddy that bought a 229 Legion that has the standard reach trigger. He wants the short reach. I don't have a 229, but I have a 220 10mm with short reach, and two 226's with short reach. Can we just swap? I assume he'll still maintain the Legion trigger job, and nothing will be disturbed, since we are just swapping the actual trigger?

Parts is parts and you should be able to swap. I believe the Legions have the Bruce Gray P-SAIT trigger, though. He may not want to get rid of that.

Sure, should be no problem.

Keep in mind that when removing the trigger bar/trigger from a P-Series that has the newer, longer lower leg, version of the Short Reset safety lever, the safety lever will need to be removed before you can maneuver the trigger bar out of the frame. Original, shorter lower leg safety levers don't need to be removed.

To easily do that, move upper leg of sear spring to right to remove tension. Push sear pivot pin to the left only far enough to clear the safety lever. Using a magnet or tweezer, lift safety lever straight up and to keep things from wantering, push sear pivot back into position - should be no need to retension sear spring. Now proceed as normal to remove locking insert and trigger/trigger bar. Reverse procedure to install, installing safety lever last.

The answer is yes having installed a Grayguns P-SAIT trigger in a standard 229. It's drop in. Vise versa is not necessarily true if the over travel needs to be adjusted. Just so you know the P-SAIT is not a standard trigger. It slightly narrower than the short reach hens the "Intermediate".
I'm not sure what benefit you get with a short reach other than a slight ergonomic difference. I never have liked the short reach or flat triggers much, but that is just me. I also wouldn't mess with a Legion trigger, it's pretty much flawless.

Yes, the Legions have the Gray Guns PSAIT trigger. It's adjustable for overtravel, so that adjustment may need changed if you put it in one of your guns. It's no overly difficult, but could possibly make the gun it's put in not drop the hammer if adjusted too far one way.

So your friend would be losing some of the pluses of the Legion trigger.

Ok, everybody. Thank you for the info. It sounds like we better not swap, or he won't be able to maintain the same feel that the Legion series comes with.

So, does Sig sell a Legion short reach trigger that he can buy and install, or send his gun in to Sig to install?

There's a flat trigger on the SAO (Single Action Only) I have no idea if this is compatible with a DA/SA model.
