I just purchased (2) brand new Sig P-239's 40's for $825.00 total along with a leather Bianchi holster which I don't like it seems to be trying to rub the bluing off of the new gun already so I went with a fobus holster,

The one gun has Sig night sights & the other has standard sights & I don't like them at all, I was going to send the gun in to Sig & they will install Night Sights for $130.00 which seems like a very good price, Since I only paid about $400.00 for the one gun do You think since it's going back to Sig anyways I may as well have them install a SRT on it ? for a $100.00 that seems like an awefully good price to Me..



I understand how the SRT system works but I have never had the opportunity to shoot a Sig with the SRT trigger system on it... I have heard nothing but praise about the SRT trigger...



I can't go wrong with the SRT for $100.00 Can I ?



Any Cons or anyone not happy with the SRT trigger system?



Thanks..

The only thing I have read but not experienced myself is the DA is not quite as nice (it may stack a bit more). I have not noticed it to be the case with my 226 Elite. Just remember to decock the hammer before removing the slide from the frame on dis-assembly. If you've ever short stroked when firing, you'll enjoy the SRT. By feel, I would say that my 226's reset is as short as a Glock's reset.

The only Sig I own has an SRT trigger. IMO its a very good trigger. I would also agree with Reliable its as short as my Glocks. Being your Guns are going back to Sig, I would go for it.

$100 is a fair price on SRT installs, I do them all the time. $130 for NS is a bit high - I think that is about $30 high but that's just me. The short reset is awesome - it cuts reset down about 60%. There are no cons save for writing the check.

The $130.00 was for the Sig night sights & installation, I thought they cost at least $80.00 or so, A few gun shops didn't have them & wanted to much $$ & a few said they didn't have the tool,

Sig has the right sights & knows what they are doing... I don't like the factory sights...Reminds me of a pumpkin sitting on a post & I can't see anymore... lol

Reliable: Thanks for the reminder, I've read something about decocking the hammer before removing the slide, Aren't You suppose to hold down the decocking lever when removing and installing the slide or the extractor may break or something like that? Different procedure for guns without the SRT system..



Thanks for the input..

Night sights usually run about $80 or so - so you are right on the money. However any gun dealer that dosen't have a sight tool lying around is unprepared in my view. I like the Trijicons over the Siglites personally but that's just me.

I totally agree with You Going Quiet.



When having a SRT installed besides shortening the trigger pull for a crisper trigger & follow up shots is it kind of like almost getting a Action Enhancement Package in the way the gun performs in a sort of way? I know that they are two different modifications the action package deals with lightening the hammer also doesn't it?



Thanks

I do not know what sig does when they do an action job. On an SRT - I'm changing two parts typically - sear and safety lever. The trigger does not get crisper, the reset point changes. I don't alter any engagement points nor should anyone have to when doing an SRT install.

The trigger doesn't get "crisper". The sear to hammer engagement is increased with the SRT, so it actually introduces more creep (Sig had reasons for doing that), but the shorter reset seems to offset that "negative". The safety lever also remains "up" after you fire the pistol, if you keep holding the trigger against the frame. Once you release the trigger for the next shot, the safetey lever drops back down, letting the firing pin safety block re-engage the firing pin.

Its CA legal as you're not altering prior to commercial sale. Its no different than a trigger job.
