Sig set trigger

Hi all ,

I was wondering when sig started installing the srt trigger.

My current project pistol is a 1987 p226 two tone marked w. Germany. The gunsmith currently is installing new night sights. He suggested to shoot it before installing the srt trigger and using the money on ammo. I will be renewing the springs.

Now the question about when the srt started being used occurred to me when I checked my other sigs.

I have a p239, p245, p229 and a p220.

The 239 was made in 07 and has the trigger.
The 229 and 245 was made in 98. Bought them new and they have the trigger.

Now the 220 was made in 95 and I got it in 97. It was a police trade in. I was surprised it has the trigger.

All shoot like a dream and I am accurate with them. They are in my carry rotation.

So I was wondering when sig started using the srt.

to confirm, are you talking about the short/thinner trigger or srt/short reset trigger??

Short reset trigger. I am trying to update the 226. Never even noticed the srt trigger on my other sigs until I checked.

My 229 has a smooth trigger and is my carry gun for around the family ranch. The 357 Sig and this gun has claimed a doe and coyote because of the smooth pull.

I think you may be mistaken as to whether or not your guns have the short reset trigger. I purchased two new P229R's, one in 2007 and another in 2008, neither came with a short reset - - I added it to both guns.

To be clear, here's how to check to see if your gun has short reset:

Dry fire gun and continue to hold trigger to the rear.

While still holding trigger back, rack and release slide to cock hammer.

Now watch the trigger from the side to see how much it moves, as you slowly release the trigger until you hear and feel the reset click.

If you have a short reset installed, the bottom of the trigger will move only about 1/8" to 3/16" to reset (even less if you have a trigger overtravel or post travel stop installed.

Or you can remove the right grip and look to see what's installed . . . in the picture, the safety lever on the right (or one similar but with a longer lower leg) is the short reset part. The one on the left is the regular (long) reset part.

I put the SRT kit in my 1990 P226 and what an improvement. A ton of videos on YouTube going over this upgrade.

So I was wondering when sig started using the srt.
I first shot the SRT in (around) 2008. I discovered it by accident when I got my 229 Elite. I didn't even know what "Elite"meant. I traded a 229 in .357 Sig for a .40 elite b/c ammo was cheaper. That accident started my Signess.
