I have a P226 w/ K-Kote from the late eighties. I put checkered wood grips (I like wood grips) and installed Meprolight night sights (I like three dot sights). Other than that no other modifications...

I agree with the poster above me. Slap on some new night sights and maybe some new springs if it needs them and be done, then go shoot the **** out of it!

I second what Reliable said!

Maintenance-yes....upgrades--no.

You have a classic Sig and it is as fine a pistol as ever made.

Perfect, Thanks everyone. I am very pleased with the gun as is. I shot about 100 rounds with her today. Any recommendation on type of night sights?

Between Trijicon and Meprolight, I would get the Meprolights. The Trijicon is a tad bit brighter, but not to justify the added expense. I have Meprolights on my P226 and the SigLites made by Meprolight on my SP2022 and P229R.

Rail on P226 Navy

Looking at possibly getting a light/laser possibly down the road any suggestions? Was thinking a green laser vs. the red but any opinions on great brands? Would like maybe light steady and option of strobe and green laser. Thanks in advance....

I have the Streamlight TLR-1 weapon light. It works great and its about half the cost of a Sure Fire weapon light. With that said, Streamlight has the TLR-2 which is a weapon light/laser combo. I would check out the TLR-2.

Just got and older P226 myself, a few planned upgrades
to update the springs contacting Bruce Gray at grayguns
for his competition spring kit, or may send it to him for the full
monty service and competition or upgraded carry work, he
does some great stuff making a great gun even better.
