Of course grips change things a tad.

SIG doesn't know, so you have to know yourself.
Just weighed my P226 with a 15rd mag - 32.85 oz.

Any recommendations for good scales to use when I test weigh the gun I’m about to buy via an online purchase?

A more simple solution would be for Sig to either get the weight spec right, or delete it. And no, I couldn’t discern a 4oz difference nor do I care to. But, the OP’s point does imply a basic question as to why Sig ever bothered to list the erroneous information. The point is not about reliance by a buyer, it’s about a seller’s odd insistence to publish sloppy data.

I am curious about a scale as well. I use I have a small Centech with 200 oz capacity that I use for calculating postage,but pistols have to be put in a box to get an accurate reading.

Slomo, I bought an "AWS" labeled scale a few years ago for such purposes. About $20.00 or so.

Go to your post office and buy a inexpensive postal scale.

Differences in weight can also depend if weight includes magazine or not and often that is not clarified for most any manufacturer. The more important measurement for me is width of pistol for concealed carry and that also varies a lot by manufacturer as some use slide width, others frame width, and others also include controls in width while some do not seem to accurately. I would consider any published specification to be an approximation and always best to handle a firearm for personal inspection to get the pertinent details.

The mag is not the issue. My P226 is 32 with the mag. Sig says 42.

Says 42 where? The product page for the P226 shows 34.

Yup, none of the P226s on their website show 42 oz. All are 34 - 34.4 oz.
The only 40+ oz P226 would be an all stainless one, which they don't produce any longer.

Except, of course, in Deutschland.

Man, I'm getting a big headache just reading thru this thread. I think we all can conclude that the Sig specs, the website, and whatever Sig CS tells you about weight is either outdated or inaccurate. Peace. Just weigh your gun anyway you want, and be done with it.

Childish drama!

If your selected piece is too light or too heavy for one to pack on any given day-

Purchase a Little Red Wagon,a wheelbarrow or ATV to pack said too light or too heavy of a firearm around.
