will do and thanks...one thing I will need to get used to and that differs from my P220 is the lanyard opening at the bottom back of the grip plates...it is sharp and catches the meat om my hand...nothing that will I hate but I ma look into G-10s from Hogue...

I shoot 2 inch groups with my tacops 40. I'm no dead eye Semore.
Best $900 bucks I ever spent.

I never thought I would like aluminum grips but a couple years ago SIG had a factory blowout clearance on those grips for $65, which was less than half regular price, so I bought a set. I love them! They are noticeable thinner than the factory plastic prips and have a great "grippyness" without being too aggressive for me. I only shoot indoors however. Some say they are uncomfortable when they shoot outside in the colder weather with bare hands.
without "uu" it's a german frame

FWIW - My 1997 vintage P226 (Exeter slides/German frame) has worked its way to become my #1 pistol of choice. I bought it used and boy was it. The only issue of any sort I have had is light pin strikes on S&B .357SIG ammo. All other ammo tried so far (many brands of 4 calibers) fired and ejected without incident.

Work horse she is.

Well it shot just as a SiG should...I have to admit the Von Stavenhagen dot the i sights are different than I am used to and I had to aim higher than I would have to with 3 dot night sights...

The Mec-Gar 18 rounders are a great addition and worked perfect...I don't know why anyone would buy the SiG 15 rounders...

Just thought I'd share...
