"At the high cost of quality .22 ammo these days you don't save much over just training with the real deal."
Where are you buying your .22 ammunition?
I'm finding suitable training .22 ammo for less than $.06/round compared to $.19/round for 115 gr. 9mm FMJ...that's a 3-to-1 advantage.

I have the 22 conversion for my MK-25 and it works great. I shoot the cheapest **** I can find and they all work well. You get a stove pipe every now and then but that happens with the CCI's too. I just purchased a x-caliber conversion to kick my 9MM up to 40SW and a 357 Sig barrel to shoot those out of the 40 slide.

Ah, I wasn't sure if that was because mine is a Calif. legal 226 or it happens on all of them.
In answer to the OP, I like shooting it; super accurate, no recoil, looks nice, BUT frequent FTEs with all 3 ammo types I've tried so far. Since it's not for SD, just plinking and maybe shooting a coyote or small varmint in a place where I don't want to make much noise. I haven't considered it a priority to report to Sig. Maybe they have a weaker spring that can be put in.
I got a good deal on mine when Sig was running a weekend special so I jumped on it. It's great to be able to practice the trigger pull at .06/round.

Not exactly a P226, but when I got my P250 i originally bought the .22 model and got a 357SIG exchange kit; the overall cost of the gun ended up being almost 80 bucks cheaper getting it this way, which is why i did it like that lol. That being said, the P250 in 22LR is super awesome. It's actually how I got my lady to like shooting a lot more. It is super reliable, and eats ammo better than my Ruger 10/22 surprisingly. Mexican surplus, CCI, Winchester bulk packs, etc all cycle with no issues. Only thing I really didn't like were the 10rd mags and the slide not locking back.
