P226 and P229

I have a new to me P229 in 357 Sig. I want to get a SRT trigger put in and was wondering if there are good smiths to do it in Central Texas area. I will probably get it cerakoated in FDE while I am getting the modifications done.

My wife got a new to her German P226 in 9mm it was a police turn in and it has good amount of scuffs and wear on the outside. Would a makeover with a short reach and short reset trigger and other modifications be worthwhile and what/who is a good smith to do that?

She also has a 1911 Fastback she loves and a P320 carry but wants to get back to DA/SA guns exclusively.

I have a P229 in 357sig and a P226 in 9mm. Watch the Sig website next week. Around holiday time they often will offer nice specials. I got SRT for my P229 and Sig threw in new Siglites and discounted replacing the springs and cleaning her up nicely.

The SRT is extremely easy to install yourself. Watch a couple of videos and do it yourself. It's definitely worthwhile to do.

If you are not...

....comfortable doing the SRT installation yourself:

Sig has a service for refurbishment of used guns, check it out. I bet they'll give you a deal on the SRT install with the service package.

If you want your SIG to be as good as it can be, there are just two choices IMO -

do it yourself (if you have the tools, time, and aptitude) or send it to Robert Burke (TheSigArmorer).

And welcome!!

Oh, and watching the video and installing SRT really is pretty much dirt simple, requiring almost none of the above

Watch this video and it is easy. I used a really small screw driver and a larger one for the grips. Took me 15 minutes even after trying to initially put something in backwards

Robert also has a local Cerakote guy that he says is the best there is. I cannot say enough about Robert's work - top notch.

+1 for doing it yourself. I have done it 3 times now and I had no prior experience.
If you want to try, have a look at my thread and the video therein:
