Are you refering to the recoil spring? P225A1's use the same flat wire recoil spring as the 9mm P239's.

Flat wire mainspring or recoil spring? All 225s have the flat wire recoil spring.

I own a bunch of sigs. The 225-A1 gets carried the most.

I have totally fallen in love my p225.
It may not be the smallest, or have the highest capacity, but it feels special and I love to carry it and shoot it.
It's a jewel!

I recall reading in Ayoob's review of it that it is on the list to get the Legion treatment. I'm curious when that will happen...

That would be interesting because I didn't think GG made a trigger for the 239/225a1.

I got one a few weeks back. I have about 100 rounds through it so far. It has been nothing but great in all aspects. I still have some more practice and training to do before I am comfortable rolling it into an EDC role. That said - I can see where my P239 SAS may be retired from EDC.

I have changed out several hammer springs in P225A1's and they all were red DAK springs. The standard SHORT P228-P229 hammer spring makes a world of difference in the gun. I've been running one in mine since the second week I bought it and with over a year plus over 8,000 rds on it.....its still going strong. Honestly its the cheapest and only needed upgrade the P225A1 needs.

I don't think I remember him saying that, maybe he did. If Sig does make a legion version and it has a rail like the rest, count me out. I really think Sig nailed this, I wouldn't change anything. I'll admit I was wrong, for initially thinking "to big, to heavy for the capacity". This thing carries great and has the best ergonomics I've ever held.

I believe Sig has already taken care of that. Mine did not come with the heavy red spring.

Neither did mine- it is the bronze spring.

That's my conclusion, too. At one point, I thought (and mentioned here) that it would be desirable to send a 225A1 in for an AEP, but I'm not going to do that with mine. It is perfect, for my needs and tastes.

Yep I don't want the AEP on a carry gun that already has a fine trigger. I was nailing a 8" target yesterday at 20 yards double action.

Thanks a lot for the status report, now I want one even more LOL!

In regards to your comment about the grip screws, I've found that G10 is such a hard material that the grip screws just don't get any bite. I've had the same problem on all of my guns with G10 grips not just the Sigs.

I just thought I would share a solution that I like better than applying Locktite. I put a tiny rubber O-ring on the screw before installing so that when you tighten it down against the G10, it compresses the rubber under the screw head and gets a good bite/friction contact. The screws never work loose with the O-rings and there is no chance of messing anything up with the Locktite.

Here is a link to what I use:
