Although this is outside the criteria you laid out, the P226RX SAO is an outstanding pistol! I was shooting near one hole groups while resting my wrists on a sandbag at 20 yards with mine today. Very similar to the Legion but with the nitron finish.

Either a MK25 or a P226 Combat.

If I had to pick between the two I'd say the Legion. With that said I've attempted to buy a Legion twice now. The first time I came home with the CZ tac II shadow the second time I came home with the 226 tacops. Third time has got to be the charm right??

Although this is outside the parameters you set the P226RX SAO is an outstanding pistol, very similar to the Legion but in Nitron. I shot mine into nearly a one hole group at 20 yards while resting my wrists over a sandbag today. Something a little different!

Thanks for the replies so far Gents! I'm enjoying reading them.

I should clarify for all the folks recommending the Legion SAO or other SAO models...I will never buy another SA pistol. I have one 1911 remaining and although I'll never part with it, I will never buy another SAO pistol. Words cannot describe how much I loath SAO pistols.

So it's between the standard Legion and a Mk25. Right now it's pretty close to a tie for me, with maybe the Mk25 ahead by a hair.

I own both the Legion P226 and the Mk25. They are both great guns in very different ways.
The MK25 is a great gun due to the fact it has a rail that should IMO be the standard rail sig should be using. Much better fit to lights etc than the "sig" rail. I also use my MK25 for a suppressor host for those days I want to run it a little quiet. All it really needed for me was the upgrade of a SRT trigger. It already had the factory threaded barrel and night sights.

My p226 Legion is better feeling in the hand with those awesome G10 grips. I also like the mini beaver tail when being pushed hard shooting fast at steel targets. The X ray sights are a really nice upgrade, as well as the trigger.

If the MK25 was a Classic 1970 Chevelle 4 speed 454, the Legion is the same car with modern fuel injection, 6 speed, and better brakes.

I dropped my MK-25 off with Robert Burke last Friday. Since the MK-25 doesn't have the SRT, I went with the QTR and carry level package. So by the end of the day the prices are going to be very similar.

Consider the Legion SAO

Like others said, you might want to consider the P226 Legion SAO. I own both the MK25 and the Legion SAO. I've polished the trigger mech on the MK25, installed the SRT kit, 17 pound main spring and an Armory Craft trigger and still like my SAO trigger much better. But having said that, I sent the SAO to Robert Burke for the Classic Series trigger work and it is sooooo nice! Even when both were stock guns the SAO trigger was much smoother.

Legion. No doubt. I've shot the P226 in 9mm, 40, and own the 357.. you will not regret it.

Sounds like you are getting it for collecting ? I think the MK25 has more historical value and is more collectible.

Otherwise, the Legion is a better shooter. Better grips, better frame ergo, better trigger and better sights.

Undercut trigger guard, grips, trigger and color = Legion win.

I recently spent some time at my LGS mulling this very decision. I love both! But when it came down to it, I made the decision to pick the Legion as my next Sig purchase. The grip, with the G10s, is "grippier" (yes, I just made that up) and somewhat slimmer than that on the MK25. I like that. I also like the undercut trigger guard as well. The trigger itself is very nice. I do like the quicker reset over that of the MK25s standard trigger; however, nothing wrong with the ST on the MK25. The thing that really sets the Legion apart for me is the lower profile levers.

On the guns with the standard levers I sometimes tip the slide lock sending the slide home on the last shot. Not really a big deal, but the lower profile levers on the Legion guns are totally out of the way, and I think Sig should put these on all their guns. They're perfectly designed to be more snag free. I actually prefer the finish and phosphate coating on the MK25, but there is nothing at all wrong with the PVD finish in the Legions. Some have said they don't like the way it wears, but I find the wearing of a gun to be much like a the patina of a fine leather. I think it enhances the look of the gun, and makes it personal to your touch. It represents the "work" you've done with the gun, and that ought to mean something to you, IMO.

So in the end my plan is to purchase the Legion 226, MK25, and/or a German made 226, in that order (depends on when I can find a nice German 226), in time. I find all these guns to be classics every Sig enthusiast should own, IF you're a real "Sigger". I would also love to acquire the P229 Combat & Legion, a P228, and a German made P220, along with a P6 and a P225A1. I think that would be my perfect Sig collection.
