P226 advice

Ok, I have a certified pre owned P226 and like it but the other one I looked at had a rail and a longer factory grip. I know the rail is not an option for this weapon but the grip is, so how di I know which one I have and which one the other was? Also, I am not sure if I will like the DAX trigger, how is the factory swap to the DA/SA? I may like the trigger it has but just curious about the other, any other things I should do to it? Hard to improve on a Sig, right?

I'm not sure what you mean by the rail not being an option. From what I see on Sigs sight all new 226s come with a rail so you are correct.

The longer grips you refer to might be the Tac Ops version:

P226 Tactical Operations

I prefer Da/Sa but that's a personal choice. As far as converting it once you've bought it, it can be done but not sure how it would effect the warranty unless you sent it back to Sig or its authorized dealer. The actual parts are around $100 maybe but getting to them is a little complicated.

Anyway, hope that helped.

I had said my 226 did not have the rail, therefore it was not an option for me to change like the grips are. If I do the DA/SA conversion I will be sending it to Sig, they know their guns and the warrantee wouldn't be affected.

Big Bird, The specific model number should be on the right end of the case.
I bought a 229 that like your 226 didn't have a rail. Give the DAK trigger
a try. I feel that it is the best trigger Sig offers next to the P250. Don't
try to "stage" the trigger, just pull it smoothly to the rear. I find I shoot
my 226DAK better than anything with a DA/SA trigger. If you
decide to have Sig convert your gun, let me know, I will buy the DAK
parts that they return. Shawn

How does $199.95 sound? Just kidding, that's what the conversion costs. I do want to shoot it a few times tget a good feel for it, to make a better decision. Seems that alot of people like the DAK trigger, I just wish I could shoot the DA/SA 226 to compare.

Big Bird, $199.95 is a little high, but you can PM me if you decide to change.
I think if you dry fire the gun you will find the trigger system (DAK) to be
surerior to just about anything else including Glocks. Just be sure to reset the
trigger each time by partially depressing the trigger or pulling the slide back
between each dry fired pull. Like they used to say, "try it, you'll like it.".

I was kidding about the price, that is what it would cost to get swapped at Sig. I may love it, will shoot it in a few days.

Yes, I should have picked up on that since your OP was so concise.
