Short Reset Trigger: P225 A1 vs P239

I've been searching on this and have found nothing conclusive so am asking here:

I've read reviews that the p225 A1 has SRT. However, the Sig website shows no indication of this that I can find.

It also seems that the regular p239 (non Gen2 SAS) doesn't have SRT, but the Gen2 does - again, according to the Sig website.

So, I have both of the above mentioned models: 225 a1, regular 239. The SA feels the same to me, leading me to believe that the web reviews are incorrect and that the 225 a1 does NOT have the SRT as standard (or the regular 239, in fact, does have SRT).

Does anyone out there know for sure what's true?

For the record, I really like both as they are and wouldn't modify them until I become a massively better marksman.

Thanks,

The SA triggers will feel almost the same since the SRT affects the reset. To compare pull the trigger (make sure gun is unloaded) and keep it held in all the way and rack the slide so it cocks the hammer again. Then slowly release the trigger and compare the distance it has to travel to reset. That is where the SRT makes a difference.

As far as I know all p225A1’s have the short reset trigger. The 239SAS does have the short reset trigger but not all p239’s do. The SRT kit can be easily added to any p series sig, the kit can be found for around $40 and installation takes just a few minutes.

You mention that the ‘SA feels the same’ to you. The SRT kit will not change the feel of the trigger in DA or SA, it only changes the reset distance in SA. If you didn’t notice it, I wouldn’t worry about it. Personally, I immediately install a SRT kit in all my sigs and am very used to the short reset.
While the SRT doesn’t change trigger ‘feel’ In my experience there is significant variation in trigger pull weights and feel between guns but that has nothing to do with the model or version or SRT kit.

Thanks very much for the suggestion. Doing it this way, side by side, the reset on the 239 is indeed longer. SRT on my 225a1 but regular on 239. However, not sure how desirable SRT would be on an 8 round mag ccw - you could pump someone full of 9 jhp very fast perhaps.

P225A1 does come standard with SRT. I have one and several other Sigs with it. SRT is the only way to go for me. It's all about discipline.

SRT or Standard Reset?

One sure way to know is to look at the mechanicals in the frame.

Remove the slide and use this pic as a reference:

Yes, the 225 A1s all have the SRT. I called sig and they verified. I received mine yesterday, made in Nov 16, and to my delight on the box it said Made in Germany! I am thrilled.

But when I took it to the range I was initially concerned because it was shooting 3" low and not tiny groups while my Micro 9 was putting them all in one large hole at 5 yards, dead on. But alas I was relieved when a range sage said it was likely me just getting accustomed to a new gun. He has 2 and they are said both are very accurate. By the end of the session most rounds out of 16 were touching other holes though not yet in one solitary hole.

It wasn't until about 6 mags in when I turned my attention to the SRTness of it. Oh yeah, it's short alright. And it makes rapid fire a hole :-) lot of fun! Get one, you'll love the way it feels in your hand. The ergonomics are great, better in my hands than a M11 because of the M11's hump by where my right thumb wants to go. A slightly longer grip makes it a little more comfortable than the 239s I handled. G10 grips and serrations fore and aft anchor this puppy firmly in my grip. I was thinkin wood, but when I felt the G10, fagetaboutit, I was sold.

Can't wait to take her out again!

Yup, this is my first with SRT and now I want to upgrade my 226. Problem is, the SRT makes you want to burn through more ammo.

Short Reset Trigger: P225 A1 vs P239

I set out to buy a 239, and ended up with a 225a1 when I got to the shop. I really like it, the grips, the SRT, the radius undercut where the trigger guard meets the frame, it is a really sweet shooter.

The 239 is probably easier to conceal, and it is definitely a nice looker, very "alphabet agency" or spy movie looking. Someday I'll pick one up, but for the money and features the 225a1 is tough to beat.

You're lucky to have both. I'm partial to the SRT and plan to put one in all my sigs.
