I never do anything on my Sigs past a regular filled strip and clean.
Some will suggest not to remove the firing pin being its not as easy as most gun and it being a bear take out. The way I see it when the time comes for a detailed filed strip and service its going back to the boys in blue.

Firing Pin removal P226
A way has to be found to move the firing pin forward slightly before removing or re-installing the FPPP. With the firing pin forward slightly, a wooden block with a hole for the FPPP is placed on a concrete floor or a solid floor. Using a very heavy hammer (21/2 or 3 lbs) and a cup tipped punch the firing pin positioning pin can be driven out right to left. Use the short punch first and then the longer punch.
If you press the safety lock in the slide the firing pin will shoot out the rear of the slide. Now you need a brand new FPPP. (do not drive back in unless the firing pin is pressed forward a small amount)
