I don't think you'll find that you can make a Sig SA/DA trigger ever feel as good as a 1911's... Maybe, but the fact that it pivots instead of coming straight back will always be its detriment. But still, for a non-custom-shop combat handgun out of the box, I don't think the Sig or H&K triggers can be beat. I don't think striker-fired pistols will ever hold a candle to a hammer-fired pistol's trigger.

Well I knoe it would be almost impossible to make every trigger the exact same and everyone is different in the way they feel the triggers I suppose. I just know that I have no complaints at all on my Sig or my Springfield triggers. Not trying to argue about it just saying that maybe one or two slip by Sig quality control is all.

Best I can recommend is G10 grips and a trip to your gunsmith to see what he can trick out for you. I see some folks put silver/nickel accents (trigger, decocker, slide release, etc) on their black guns.

There are a few guys on the 'net that have done some really nice work to Sigs...there's a guy in Michigan who does some really nice finishes. Just type "Custom Sig Sauer" in your search engine...you'll find something.

I've sunk plenty of money in my G19 to make it 'pop.' Fortunately, it still goes 'bang.' My Sigs do it alot more comfortably and accurately.

Only work I've done to my Sig is polishing the chamber. Did that cause the finish wore off I was thinking about polishing the controls too like I did my Springfield but I'm holding off on that for now.

Yeah I polished my barrel and controls, on my 2022. I only ask because the gun lends itself to aesthetic after market parts. Not something as… questionable as a punisher backplate, but skeleton triggers, custom back straps—the back straps alone snap on and off for the most part. as simple as the pistol is and the following it has you would assume there would be some Glock-like parts.

The Glock name carries so much weight it seems with new shooters so I understand the abundance of custom shenanigan parts. But something like prefabricated plated controls, triggers and custom molded grips would be something I would buy, and I'm sure you would as well. I guess I was just hoping one of yous would be all "Filthy, go to www.customsigthingsyouwant.com" or something.

I saw that looks good nice two tone. I wanted at some point to two tone polish certain parts of my slide but not sure how to go about it. Has any one tried acid etching the nitron off?

Haven't tried any acid etching. But the finish on the Springfield was some really thin coating that came off pretty easy. I did the slide becuase of all the holster wear that was already showing. I'm prett pleased with the turn out of it!

I think its a matter of personal preference whether a glock or a sig looks better. I like the way my glock and sig look equally. When it comes to abundant parts glock has absolutely more parts OEM and more custom parts. I have so many things done to my 4th gen glock. When it comes to my sig, only thing that comes to mind is a new trigger, trigger job, stippling in certain areas, and possibly night sites if yours didn't come out the box with em.

I totally agree with you SauerSig. It is a matter of personal preference. I've shot Sig and Glock both. The Sigs have always felt like the solid piece of equipment they were built to be. Glocks on the other hand which I have handled but shot sparingly have always felt like a cheap throw away gun. Almost feels like something you would have picked up at an old liquor store back in the day just before tying one on and goin to pop somebody and chunking the gun in the nearest dumpster afterwards. Its just not my preference. I had the opportunity to buy a G22 40 cal shortly after I bought my Sig for 500 bucks. That included 7 extra mags 2 concealment holster and all the work that was don't on the gun itself like the trigger job and extended slide and mag releases. Sounds like a hell of a deal but I would have just turned around and sold it for 700 without ever firing it. And before its asked I had shot that Glock before and still didn't care for it. So my preference is Sig my wife and daughter have both shot Glocks before and I'm not saying they're not reliable or inaccurate or actually anything detrimental about them in general. Just not the guns for me.

My $349 dollar police trade in Glock 22 came to me in like new condition with bright trijicon night sights. I installed competition springs throughout. I smoothed out and polished all connecting and bearing surfaces. I custom fitted, smoothed out, and polished a Ghost Rocket 3.5# trigger connector that has a trigger over travel tab that had be custom fitted with a file. I removed the black from my barrel and polished it to a mirror finish, never rusts. Installed and polished to a mirror finish an extended slide release. Installed an expensive 3 spring recoil reduction guide rod system. I also polished the ejector and ejector plunger to a mirror finish. I did the white nail polish mod on the magazines and slide so now I can actually quickly see the round count and all the markings on my slide pop out. Installed a Crimson Trace LG617 laser grip.
My Glock is fantastic but I had to do a lot of work and spend a bit of money to make it mine.

Yeah I watched a video on the nail polish job on a Glock. The thing had pink hogue rubber grip sleeve and a pink back plate on the slide and they used pink nail polish. I'm only hoping that the gun was for a girl but it was a guy doin the video!
