Trigger reach on P226

I find the the trigger reach on my 226 is too short. Does anyone knows if there is a way to increase the trigger reach on 226? In the DA position the finger is in correct position, but when in SA position the finger tip gets pinched after discharged. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania.

Does your 226 have a standard trigger or a short reach trigger? Many of the newer ones have been coming through with short reach triggers.

Example of a standard trigger:


I do not have an image of the short reach trigger but the difference is in the front to back width when looking at the trigger fron the side, The Short reach trigger is much thinner and has more of a curve to it. Look at the Sig Web site for ones that are advertising the short trigger (not to be confused with the SRT)

To increase the trigger reach you may need to install a standard trigger
SIG Standard Trigger - P226, P228, P229 Black - Top Gun Supply

My son put a short trigger on his 226 and when I shot his pistol I had the exact same problem you are describing.


Edited to add ---- Found an image from The Sig Website of an Equinox with a Short trigger for comparison
This one has a Short trigger:

Do you have a SRT (Short Reset Trigger) installed?

If so you should be able to get the parts or have a gunsmith switch to the standard reset trigger system

Because they both start of with 'short' and their initials are similar, many get short trigger mistaken for short reset trigger. They are not the same and serve two different purposes. For clarification:

Short Trigger = short reach trigger is used to reduce the distance for the shooter to reach the trigger. Mainly beneficial for those with small hands or short fingers.

SRT = short reset trigger is an upgrade to some Sigs to allow for a quicker trigger reset after the slide has cycled. This would allow faster follow up shots because the user would not have to let the trigger travel forward as far as one without the SRT to reset the trigger.

The SRT is not visually different when looking externaly, it is composed of a different sear and safety lever and uses the same trigger as any other Sig.

What has made it even more confusing is that Sig has been putting short triggers on more and more models, those with and without the SRT. It is not always mentioned in the specs and therefore easily misinterpreted as the 'other' trigger.

Thank you for your reply. I do not have SRT. It does appear that I have the “skinnier” trigger than the “standard” that you suggested. Although, in the photos it does not appear that the standard has significantly further reach, at least not in DA position.

I’d be curious to know whether you found that the standard trigger feels further out in the SA mode. How do you explain that it does not pinch your finger tip when firing? Thank you.

The difference is about an eighth of an inch in reach. With the short trigger I feel that I have too much finger in the triggerguard. Ideal placement should be the center of your fingertip pad should be on the trigger. The pinching you are refering to. . . Where is your finger getting pinched? between the frame and the trigger? or between the triggerguard and the trigger? My pinching with the short trigger was the result of being too far into the triggerguard and 'pinching' into my support hand, I may have misunderstood your original post.

Too little finger in the triggerguard can cause one push the shots left.

Too much finger in the triggerguard can cause pulling the shots right.
