P226 Extreme Legion RX (from SIG)

SIG is releasing a "Frankensig".

A P226 Extreme Legion RX!

It is basically a P226 Extreme with standard SRT and short reach trigger, but outfitted with a Legion RX slide.

Osage County Guns has the details.

Interesting....

Larry's in downtown had the Legion SAO RX. If it wasn't priced so high it would have come home, but I think I'll go for the regular Legion SAO since I already have the P226 RX.

Oh jeez. Let's just slap together parts that don't look right together, and charge a premium for it

Um. Pass. Respectfully.

If it doesn't earn a place as a true Legion but has the name, why include the name in the first place?

Looks neat and all, though. Maybe if I were looking for a home gun. But EDC? I think not.

I think it's like this because Osage may have done a special order. They move allot of Sigs. They took what parts where in stock and had them build up the guns for them. So since it has the Legionized upper and a basic lower (extremized) then you get the name.

Possible. SIG could be getting rid of an overstock of non-elite frames and Extreme grips from discontinued models (including discontinued Extreme line). The gray slide complements the Extreme G10 grips.

I've been seeing quite a few CPO SIGs on GunBroker over the last few months with gray frames and standard Nitron slides. Even some non-rail P229s. I assume that it is the same Legion finish applied by PVD, but not positive.

i have a P229 enhanced elite (Legion series not on our roster) and might put a P229 Legion RX slide on it if/when they become available. rumor is that Osage might see some in september.
i got my P226 Legion used from an LEO, and put the RX slide (from osage county guns) on it.

anyway, being relatively new to optics on hanguns (although i have used red dots on rifles), i am not using it as the home defense gun.
once comfortable that the optics don't make me slower in any conditions, i'll probably run the P229 hybrid.

Agreed. Just crazy. I am sure we would all rather see them deliver on other promised guns such as the P229 Legion RX SAO.
