Sig P6 Project Complete!!!!

Hey guys, Just picked up my Sig P6 from my FFL after it got back from Gerry over at Total Automation, and thought I'd share my completed project










And a much nicer photo from when it was refinished by Twisted Firearms



Here's everything that was done/added to my P6.

-Parkerized with magnesium phosphate and Cerakoted by Twisted Firearms LLC out of Oregon. Twisted Firearms LLC
-Trigger job by Gerry at Total Automation Total Automation Virginia's Premiere Sig Sauer Gunsmith
-Standard P225 length Barsto Precision Barrel
-Bedair Stainless Steel Guide Rod
-Trijicon Night Sights
-Hogue Extreme G10 Grips SKU:27179

If you need a refinishing job done, I would definitely consider Jake at Twisted Firearms. His customer service was great, and gave frequent updates to the progress of my Sig.

If you need a trigger job done, I would also take a look at Gerry. Here's what he did for me.

- "Smooth Operator" (MUCH smoother DA pull, no gritty-ness)
-Quick-Trigger Reset (Gerry's version of a SRT modification)
- High Torque Trigger (Mod to the trigger/triggerbar to reduce DA pull with standard mainspring in place)

BEFORE:
Average Trigger Pull: DA 11lbs, 9.7 oz, SA 4lbs. 6oz

AFTER
Average Trigger Pull: DA 10lbs, 3oz (13% reduction), SA 3lbs, 6oz (23% reduction)

I can't exactly show you how "smooth" the DA has become, but it is much smoother and feels nicer than my SP2022 DA pull.

Also I want to mention that Gerry told me he made the scratch you can see on the Bar-sto close up. He also told me that he would pay for the cost of refinishing it again. Gerry's trigger job speaks for itself, but simply put, his customer service was outstanding.

Other than the scratch my P6 is flawless and carry ready Let me know what you guys think.

Love it!
The cousin of the P6, the 225, was one of my all time favorite pistols...
wish I still had it, but at least I get to look at yours!

Any way you can sink those grip screws to be flush with the grip?
Seems like it might be a drag when shooting, could cut your palm?

Something to do with the G10 grips?

Thanks for sharing, looks great!

I put new washers under the grip screws, so that might attribute to them sticking out a bit, I'll try tightening them, but I dont think its because of the new grips...I hope not lol.

I'll do a range report within a week too, and comment on whether they cut up my hands.

Gerry has worked on two 220 hammer and sears for me, he does great work.

Congrats on a fine weapon.

225's a little bit different, some folks think worth more than a p6 but a p6 is a great investment & fun to shoot.

my 2 were very accurate but a handful da.

A great, classic SIG. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and won't ever get rid of it. I certainly wouldn't.

the grips look like the stock 225 grips.. are they a softer material?

were the barrel and guiide rod drop in or did the need work?

I picked these grips because some of the other Hogue options were matte blacks that didn't seem like they would go well with the black cerakote. That being said, it isn't softer material but the texturing is much more aggressive. The texturing digs into my hand after dry fire practicing but I don't mind because before when my hands would start to sweat the stock grips became somewhat slippery. These Hogues are also slightly slimmer in my opinion. Definitely worth the money imo.

The guide rode is a simple drop in, and i got it from topgunsupply. Bedair stainless steel guide rod.

The Barsto barrel had to be fitted by Gerry when it was sent for the trigger job. This was my first Barsto barrel (or any aftermarket barrel for that matter) and from what I was told when I ordered it the barrel is a "semi-cut". Sometimes it won't require fitting and other times it will, in my case it did.

I haven't shot it yet, but I'll give a range report on the Barsto barrel soon. Barsto has 9 P225 barrels left last time I checked. The P225 barrel is the same as the P6 dimensions wise.

Hope that helps!
