Yesterday I took a recently acquired P-6 to the range. This pistol feels so nice. Never paid much attention until I laid it down and picked up the 226. Perfect for carry. SA trigger is OK but have to do something about the DA. Accuracy is spot on and one hand shooting is a breeze, in fact I shoot this one handed better than 2.
Wonder what SIG can do with the trigger.Wonder if a SRT would tighten up the DA a bit.The present reset is acceptable and I think the "enhanced" one by SIG is a bit too delicate for carry. Any suggestions?

more will chime in here soon enough but I believe that the P6 will have a heavier trigger pull (DA) than a similar P225...perhaps you can get the parts or spring swap to make it more similar to the P225 in feel and that may be enough...

Hey Sgt Ed,
Congrats on the P-6! I got mine only a few weeks ago. But it shoots like a dream...when in SA DA takes a considerable amount of focus and effort since its a super long trigger pull.
Anyways, I am sending my P6 to Gerry over at Total Automations for
1) Quick-Trigger Reset TM (QTR) and SA Take-up Reduction Hammer Modification. This modification allows quicker next-shot reset of the trigger leaving the firing pin safety block intact and essentially eliminates trigger take-up after reset in SA. When you go to pick up the trigger for the follow-up shot, it is "right there" with very little additional travel to engage the hammer and sear. The Sig SRT can compromise the firing pin safety block, defeating an important factory-installed safety mechanism. This package is recommended for both Concealed Carry and Competition. (Hammer modification and a new replacement Safety Lever: $75.00 plus round-trip shipping of the pistol.)
2) Smooth-Operator TM: Fit and Polish of all trigger components for a masterfully smooth trigger. This package is recommended for both Concealed Carry and Competition. ($150.00 plus round-trip shipping of the pistol.)
4) "High-Torque Trigger TM" Mod: P6/P225 specific change (other Sig’s by request) gives about a 15-17% decrease in trigger pull using the standard 24 lb. hammer spring (13-15% in other models). It is common for Sig owners to install a lighter-than-factory mainspring, which compromises the power to the firing pin, resulting in light primer strikes, and, subsequently, failures to fire. This mod gives about the same reduction in trigger pull utilizing the standard spring as installing a 19 lb. mainspring, but eliminates the possibility of light strikes due to a lighter spring. ($75.00 plus round-trip shipping of the pistol.)
This is my first time sending in a gun for a trigger job, but I've heard and read great things about Gerry so I'm looking forward to seenig how it turns out.
For the record, I tried changing out the mainsprings (hammer spring) to lighten up the DA trigger pull myself, and put in a Wolff 19lb mainspring. While it was lighter, it staged INCREDIBLY awkwardly, making it difficult to shoot. This is why I've opted to have a professional gunsmith do mine.
As for the SRT, you can drop in the P220 SRT kit into the P6, if you want to install it yourself. Figured that out lurking on sigforum
