SRT vs regular trigger

Yesterday at a LGS I was able to compare a new P226 Elite with a SRT to a P229 with a regular trigger. In SA the SRT had a nice short pull and recovery as I had expected. However, even though both guns were new and not yet broken in, I was surprised to find that in DA the SRT had a noticeably harder and rougher pull. I was planning to send my P226 back to Sig this week to install a SRT, but now I'm having second thoughts. I would appreciate others opinions on whether the SRT is worth it.

Coincident. I had one with and one without SRT. Trigger pull was the same. I highly recommend getting the Action Enhanced Package while it is there. That made a big difference. Now all my Sig's have to have it. In fact, the AEP is more important to me than the SRT.

There is a shortage of SRT kits but Sig will do it for $70.00 and warranty the work.

I had SIG do the AEP and SRT to my P226 and now have to do it to all my SIGS. It is a must! I actually just shipped my P239 out yesterday to have the AEP, night sites, and 11 barrel recrown done.

I heard that SIG stopped selling them to civilians because the work involved required a certain amount of skill to ensure proper operation. Like the others here said, SIG will install one for you for $99.95 and their work is guaranteed. While it's there, you can also have them do the Action Enhancement Package for little extra but from everything I've heard it's well worth it (I'm having it done to my P228 right now).

After adding the SRT to my 226 stainless it cleaned up the single action pull(pre travel) but added some weight to the double action but changing the hammer spring to a 19 lb corrected it. Before changing to the SRT I polished the friction areas as listed in the online trigger job but not much of an improvement. I really like the feel of the SRT.

Thats not true!!!

The SRT Kit is EASY to install and only takes a minimal amount of skill if you are mechanically inclined to do the install yourself. You swap out the sear and safety lever..... thats it. Its not hard. Anyway, ALL gun owners should know how to disassemble and reassemble their firearms.

MidwayUSA, Brownell's, Top Gun Supply all sell the SRT Kit when they have it in stock!

Today I added to my confusion. At another LGS I was able to compare a P226 Enhanced Elite (w/SRT) alongside a standard P226 (w/o SRT). Neither the sales person nor I could tell any difference in the two triggers. I wondered if Sig somehow forgot to instal the SRT I'm the Elite.

While I can't explain these inconsistent trials, the positive feedback from those of you with SRT's has convinced me that it's still worth doing. Thank you for the feedback.

It's unlikely an elite came out without the SRT. Make sure you are cycling the action to feel the single action reset. Dry fire in fouble action and hold the trigger to the rear while cycling the action then feel the single action reset. The difference between the standard and SRT is pronounced. Absent that, pull the right grip panel off and take a look.

Not quite correct. The longer safety lever is actuated by the trigger bar as the pistol is fired in double action. The geometry is quite different and changes the feel of the double action trigger.
