Man I think it's hard to go wrong with any P226. They are all pretty awesome, I say the Legion has a slight edge over the MK25 though. It has better factory sights, G10 grips, the grayguns trigger. The finish I would say is a non issue in your case since you aren't planning on carrying it.

My votes on Legion. It's just a different brand of Sig, everything one it just feels a bit more premium IMO. Maybe it's just me, but my Legion just feel more smooth and solid than my regular nitron or combat.

Wait for the Legion upgrade when they put a real rail on it, of course it will be called something else then. But, since this is more a collector piece then the rail doesn't matter, but then nothing else does either.

The legion just checks all the right boxes straight from the factory. Nothing else needs to be done, right out of the box, one of the few pistols where I didn't have to upgrade the grips, sights, trigger, ect . . .

Legion. It's a complete pistol. Never have given the MK25 a second thought. Yes, it's the choice of SEALs in decades past, but the Legion is the result of continual improvements of the P226.

I agree GCBHM, I like wear on a gun, it gives it character. But...the exception to that is baked on finishes. I haven't researched it enough regarding the legion, but if the Legion uses a baked finish like Cerakote, that would put it in a huge minus column for me. I like the wear of bluing, Parkerizing, and Ionbond, but the "chipping" of baked on finishes looks really trashy IMHO. Neverenoughsig makes a good point that finish wear will not be much of an issue with this pistol, but still, if the Legion uses a cerakote-like product, that would bring it down a notch for me.

I had forgotten about the smaller profile controls of the Legion. That interests me a lot, just like the trigger. The Legion sights are actually a small move in the minus column for me. Grip on either the Legion or the Mk25 is a non issue, since both would likely be replaced by the E2. I have Hogue rubber, hardwood, G10, stock SIG, and E2 grips. I prefer the E2's by a huge margin over all others. Which brings up another question...can the Legion accept E2 grips even with the smaller controls? That might be a deal killer for me if it can't.

I don't know enough about the legion as I've stated I don't want one. But I do have a question. Is the legion frame hard anodized under the coating? It seems like some have gone straight past the legion coating to exposed aluminum with wear on the rails. My cerakote MK25 is hard anodized under the cerakote.

Yes. Only the levers/contact points for your fingers changed in size and texture. Members, including myself, have successfully swapped controls to P224 controls without issue.

See also the P229 Carry. It uses the P224 decocker, but oddly not the slide stop. They probably didn't want to make a whole other P229 grip outside of the Legion series that's flush with the P224 slide stop.

I chose the Mk25 and basically "legion'd it". I have the GGI trigger, G10 grips, SRT, low profile slide lever, fully polished internals and XRay sights.
I did all the upgrades prior to the Legion's arrival, minus the sights, but if I hadn't gone XRay when they became available I'd have put Trijicon HD on. I still might with the HD XR series.

I prefer the short extractor and true 1913 rail. I'd have liked the trigger undercut, but would rather have the short extractor.

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.


Wow. Not only did you reference my two favorite Sigs in one remark, you also related them to my absolute favorite muscle car. Good job sir!!

I would go with the Legion, for all the reasons posted by others. Plus if you still want the MK25 later, you will be able to find it no problem.... The legion could be a little more difficult to get.

Agreed. And as another poster stated, it seems the E2 grips can be added, so you may be in 'ere!

I agree with what jwperry says here, but the one thing you can't do to the MK25 to Legionize it is the undercut grip. That was a big seller for me when I had this same debate a year ago. I ended up with the Legion and don't regret my decision at all. It is the best trigger of any gun I own. That being said, the one game changer for me since I made the decision would be the MK25 RX. Not sure where you are on the red dot's, but with my aging eyes, I am ready to try one out.

I own both, prefer the MK25. My MK25 has a better trigger, despite not having the SRT. My reasoning is primarily the pic rail and short extractor.

I have both the P226 Legion and MK25 but the Legion is the winner for me. Love the X Ray sights, custom trigger, look and the feel of the Legion.
