Trickn' out your Sig?

Saw a post on the Sig Facebook page posing the question about the merits of tricking out your sig. They specifically referenced Salients' project with modifying the p226 mk25 (Day 1 with the Salient MK25 (SMK25) | Ballistic Radio on 55KRC THE Talk Station).

What are everyone's thoughts on tricking out your sig? Have you made any mods that you feel made a difference to your weapon and were worth it?

I only wonder because I know sig makes an awesome product out-of-box, and I really question the value other than making your gun look like a case queen.

I personally only do things that would help performance. Not interested in fancy grips unless they improve grip. Etc.

I changed the sights and have replaced springs, other than that it's pretty well stock.

As far as being a difference or worth it; the Trijicon HD sights are by far the best thing I have done to any if my Sigs.

My favorite 2 Sigs have adjustable sights and Nill grips, I think that is two improvements over stock.

Thanks for the reply. In your opinion would you say the Trijicon HD sights are better than the Siglite night sights?

The fluorescent front sight and wider u-shaped rear make it a lot easier for my aging eyes, as well as being more robust and orthogonal so as to "bite" better while doing one handed manipulations like the other cool kids.

Tricking out a Sig?

Those two things just don't go together. Kind of like pimping out a Bentley or a Rolls-Royce.

I agree with Bearone. I'm a purist. I've even kept the contrast sights on my 229.
I have a question that is chasing a rabbit a little- is this 229 original? I can't find it on the Sig site, or on any google searches.

I like the form and function concept in a handgun and that is why I buy Sigs. Improving on the performance with trigger work etc... is a good thing but improving on the looks without hampering performance is what makes owning a Sig that much more fun.

There are so many ways you can customize the look, feel and performance of a Sig. That custom MK25 looks like it accomplishes all three.

Other than G-10 grips I leave them alone, functional and basic all business look.
Course I've never been a bling gun guy.

Guns these days are like cars, if you can make it your own a lot of people do. I have a bunch of Sigs. Most are OEM, a few are custom as far as to my liking. Why have something very one else has when you have have something unique.
