Description:

The SIG SAUER® P226 is the pistol that set the standard by which all other combat handguns are measured. Designed as SIG’s entrant in the military trials to replace the 1911, today the P226 is in use by the U.S. Navy SEALs, Federal agents, and numerous law enforcement agencies including the Texas Rangers, Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Michigan State Police to name a few. The exceptional ergonomics and balance make this full-size pistol easy to handle. Available in either 9mm, .357 SIG or .40 S&W, its longer barrel yields better ballistic performance and accuracy.

    This is my weapon of choice. Nice Gun and it fits well in my hand. I had a problem with the .357 sig round and this gun though. According to the professionals the 226 frame was initally made for the 9mm round and was adopted for the .357 and .40 rounds. From what I gathered the frame was not "beefed" up enough for the higher energy. I started with the .357 round and blew the sear pin set up out. Lucky I was on the range. Sig was more than happy to fix the gun for free. I changed to the .40 barrel and al has gone great since.

    I use this as my competition and winter carry piece. I love the way it fits like my hand like an extension. I have one in .40 S&W and one in .357 SIG. Both are fantastic shooters. The only thing I wish they had is a little more capacity.

    Firstoff, I was apprehensive about a firearm ISSUED by my agency, as the agency's rep in this area was dismal. That's okay, so was training (at that time). After actually using the P226, I was so impressed with it, I personally bought a pre-owned - and pre-ban (in 1998) P226 complete with the two full-cap magazines. Following Sig's care/maintenance instructions, this weapon has performed flawlessly ever since. There was a temporary issue of RUST from my keeping it in a nylon holster exposed to extreme dampness, but a cleaning and regular application of Sig's specified cleaner stopped the rust "cold" and prevented further rust. I'm very satisfied.

    Good weapon. Accurate. Sights are less forgiving but more precise than Beretta or Glock. Reliable. Less rust prone than Beretta, but you still need to keep it oiled in humid environments...it ain't a Glock. Probably one of the single most accurate issue duty weapons out there, rivaled only by H&K. Highly recommended for the officer who is gun-savvy and likes to shoot. It's smaller framed sibling the P228 is better choice for females, small handed males or undercover officers who need to conceal a weapon but prefer a higher capacity and more substantial grip. The P226 is still one of the best weapons out there for patrol.

    This is by far the best semi-automatic handgun I have ever fired. I was issued the 9mm version in 1994 and transitioned to the .40SW when Sig began producing them. Never even realized a difference, except the stopping power was dramatically increased with the .40SW. I loved this weapon so much, I bought it when I retired. Carry it now.

    Sig Sauer is the gold standard of handguns bar none! I used a Sig 226 9mm through my basic academy and switched to the 226R in .40 S&W when I started patrol. I have a SIg 232 .380 for off duty carry. I would not trust my life or my family's life to any other firearm.

    Have carried the P226 .45cal. for several years now. It is an excellent weapon that is dependable (even in adverse whether and environmental conditions such as sand and dirt). Easy to break down and clean and the Trijicon sights make shooting a breeze. None of the violent kickback of the old military .45's. A great weapon.

    I love this gun. After I bought my own, I sent it off and had it K coted. Ive had mine for yrs. I also own an H&K USP 9mm, and a Glock model 26. My dept issues the Sig 220 (.45). I carried the 220 for a couple yrs, but after I went back to plain clothes, I returned the 220 and resorted to carrying the 226 again. I dont like to carry spare mags on my person and the 226 holds more ammo than the 220. I love my 226.....

    Have had two "issued" P226's in the last 13 years on the department. First was a 9mm that was one of the first semi-autos the department changed to about 5 to 10 years before I hired in. When it was empty you could hear it rattle a bit as there had been 1000's of rounds put though it, but it never failed and was still accurate. Currently have the .40 cal. and it has functioned flawlessly. I understand that our department is changing again. Believe it will stay with the P226 (per rumors). Hope so, this is the best weapon I've fired in a long time.

    Awesome firearm. I used this gun in 9mm for about 6-7 years. Our department has issued them in .40 cal. for about 5-6 years. Extreemly accurate and has a great feel to the hand. Simple operation and breakdown. Only problem I ever had was that I dried the rails and it started to stovepipe. This is a wet fire gun and needs to be kept oiled. If you do then you will never have any problems with it.

    My new agency requires the .40 S&W to be carried and although the heavy pull on the first round took me by suprise I still qualified the first time I fired this pistol. Having settled on the Glock 37 as my own weapon of choice, I found this pistol to meet and exceed the expectations set by prior reviewers here.

    My department has used this weapon, in .357 Sig, since 1998. We have 900 officers and have had no problems like the one described by Brad33. So far in 7 shootings with it 6 of the suspects have been killed. The one shooting where the bad guy lived was by a motor officer who had just ridden past an armed robbery where the robber shot the victim. The officer made a U-Turn came to a stop and fired while astride his motor striking the suspect in the abdomen. Our Special Response Unit, within the last year to year and a half have switched from .45 USPs back to this weapon platform and caliber.

    This is the standard for all weapons. Only because I am an owner of two. Does that make me bias, I think probably so. I have owned several other types of handguns and carried just as many. This weapon is by far the best I have ever used. It fits easily into you0r hands, whether they be small or large. Easy to carry on or off duty. It has either 10 or 12 round mags available to use.

    After a fatal in line of duty shooting of a brother officer in Lewiston Maine on July 23, 1988 our department replaced the Swith and Wesson .367 with the P226. The transition was extremely smooth and a nice comfort from carrying six in the cylinder to 15 in the semi. The weapon is easily maintained , quickly broken down, reliable and very accurate as long as you perform the required maintenance. When working plain clothes the weapon was easily concealed in such a way as to make access simple and effective.

    I don't have much choice in whether or not I carry this weapon but if I did, I would choose it hands down. Over 3,000 rounds down range with only a handful of malfunctions firing plinking ammo. The best handgun I have ever fired. I carry the .357 SIG but have shot the .40 with the same results. DA/SA is smooth and consistent. There is a reason much of the country is switching to SIG as a primary weapon, the perform flawlessly.

    Department issued in .357 Sig. I will buy one of my own. I have fire most of the Sig family of pistols and like that they share the same controls, this is a plus when trying to select back ups, no worries about changing to a different type of control system. This is also a good choice for those with thicker hands the slide sits high above the frame reducing slide bite, this was the only solution that worked for a fellow officer at a former agency.

    Great sidearm, reliable, durable, easy to operate and maintain. The excellent reputation of a Sig Sauer in a full size "duty" package. I own a 226 in .40cal and I am very pleased with it's performance, accuracy and quality. I easily switched the factory grips to Houge grips and I have always easily found holsters for this weapon (compatible with P-220 holsters). I reccommend this as an excellent primary sidearm, especially for Departments. The only drawbacks are that spare mags are pricy at $30-$45 per mag. And you do need to watch for specks or rust in damp/humid/marine condition (more the Mags than the gun). I am very pleased with my Sig, the only thing I would change would be to include Accy. rails when purchased, other than that it is perfect!

    This weapon, in the P226R model, is absolute garbage, IMHO. My department issues this as the standard sidearm and I HATE IT!!!! Mainly, the trigger pull is very long and weird. My whole deparement complains about this weapon. We originally carried the P226, which was a fine weapon, then switched to the P220 (.45 cal), then switched over to the P226R because some of the guys said the .45 "was too big". WAH!!!! So now we're stuck with the P226R and it's L-O-N-G trigger pull that makes you develop weird shooting habits. If you have a choice and you're going to spend the money, make sure you buy the P226 or P220. Stay away from the P226R. Better yet, buy a Glock; I haven't shot a bad one yet.

    This was going to be my weapon of choice, some time back, but when I blindfoled my eyes and placed five pieccs in front of me to get an accurate fit and feel blindfolded, anoth piece fit my hands like a glove. It was revealed that this Sig came in 4th. I have big hands for a woman, but not as big as my male counter part,s so the fit may be a much better one for the males.

    I have owned two of these weapons, my first one in 9mm, and the second one is a brand new P226R in .40 caliber. As a duty weapon, you cannot ask for a better firearm. Tough, utterly reliable, and extremely accurate. You will not be dissapointed.

    I also have to strongly disagree with MPD about his review of the 226R. MPD, you recommended that people buy the 226, but stay away from the 226R. I'm curious as to why you'd say this, because the 226 and 226R are mechanically and functionally the EXACT same weapon. The only difference with the 226R is the fact that it has a light rail, hence the "R" designation. Sig does not produce a non-railed version of the 226 anymore, either.

    Also, the 226 does not make you develop "wierd" shooting habits. You might not be used to the double action/single action trigger, but learning to shoot one is hardly wierd. It's just different. As far as DA/SA triggers go, the Sig P226 is by far at the top of my list as far as the quality of the trigger. If there is anyone on the fence about buying one of these guns, DO IT. You will not regret it. You will not find a finer duty weapon. More money? Sure, they are pricey. More quality? You bet. If you have the means, pay the money for a Sig.

    When I first started shooting handguns I tried several different makes and models. As a left handed shooter, I had trouble with several other duty weapons. But then I found the Sig 226 which I had converted to have the magazine release on the right side. I have since shot my Sig 226 for the past four years and over 5,000 rounds later. I have never had a misfire, jam, or other malfunction, yet I also take pride in cleaning and caring for my Sig as well. I have outshot career officers who are shooting their various guns and I credit a lot of it to my Sig. It's accurate, easy to clean, and reliable.

    I made the switch to the P226 last year after carrying a Beretta 92 for 10 years, and I'm glad I did. Although I loved the Beretta, I've been very happy with the P226. I have not encountered a single problem with this weapon, and it has not jammed once in well over a thousand rounds.

    Great weapon! It was my gift from the association at retirement in 2004 and I still carry it today. Our department went from the Glock, to the Sig 9mm and then to the Sig .40. Several years ago I was chasing after one of my detectives who was on his way to the towing yard with a patrol officer. They ended up in a pursuit of some visitors from LA who just knocked off a bank. In the rear of an apartment comlex after a foot pursuit one suspect turned and pointed a gun at the detective who returned fire hitting him in the chest and gut. One 9mm round went through and through and bounced off a cinder block wall. The suspect ran two more blocks before giving up. Our next shooting with a .40 took a suicide by cop suspect down after a pursuit who died before he hit the ground according to the coroner. Both rounds did exactly what they were suppose to do. We all have reasons for changing weapons and this happened to be ours at the time.

    I bought the .357 sig P226 with the DAK trigger and couldn't be more pleased with it. I previously carried a P220 (.45) and have no complaints but I wanted the accessory rail, have always been an admirer of the .357 sig round, and was intrigued by the DAK. It has a beautiful, smooth trigger pull and is still one of the most accurate weapons out of the box. Factory-installed Sig-Lite tritium sights and I'm good to go.

    This is the gun I carry on duty right now. It's very accurate and reliable. The one complaint I have is the double action trigger all the time. I came from carrying a Glock 23 which had a single action after the first shot and this one takes some getting used too.

    Brand new out of the box, shot through the academy ( 1000+ rounds), at the range and through a few rounds of qualifying without one issue. If your life depends on it this handgun beats all others. Very accurate, if you're missing it's most assuredly shooter error not the weapon.

    I currently cary this pistol as my issued department service weapon. As a current firearms instructor, I have a lot of opportunity to evaluate the overall fit of this weapon for our agency. In general, the quality, reliability, and accuracy of this gun is outstanding.

    However, the trigger needs a lot of work to clean up all the slack and the change from the double action to single action pulls. Coming from another agency that I carried a Glock 22 for almost 6 years on patrol, special operations, and SWAT, I am inclined to say that I preferred the Glock.

    First and foremost is the ease of use. The Glock has the same trigger pull every time, with a short and crisp reset. The Sig has a long hard double action pull on the first shot, followed by a lot of slack to be taken out after resetting the trigger for the follow-up shots. This creates a huge issue if your first shot has to be the only shot. Most shooters I work with are not comfortable with the double action pull because of how long and drawn out it is. Further, the slack creates a whole seperate issue when looking for quick, accurate follow up shots because most shooters lack the trigger time and training not to "Mash" the trigger. This acceleration through the slack in the trigger brings us to a slam on the actual pressure wall where the trigger starts to engage and causes accuracy issues.

    I think the size of the weapon is something else to be considered. The Sig is a full size gun with a full size grip. Many other weapons systems are going to interchangeable backstraps to accomodate different shooters hands. Also, this is a heavy gun.

    Overall, I think the Sig is a good gun for some, but it is ignorant to say that one gun is right for everyone. After all, we want LE Officers to be confident in their abilities with the gun they are carrying. They are the one making the decision to shoot/not shoot and the last thing needed in their mind is doubt in their ability to shoot the gun they carry.

Working in a high crime city in New Jersey this gun is acknowledged by all thugs and street trash. Not that im bragging but when I had to stop the threat against a suspect who was attempting to point his 9 mm at me , When that first round hit him in the shoulder he screamed like a Biatch !!!!!!!!!

The 226 I now own is my second Sig and I must say that it is a fantastic piece of gunmaking excellence. I am a civilian shooter but I have put thousands of rounds through my gun and it continues to perform flawlessly, time after time.

Designed as SIG’s entrant in the military trials to replace the 1911, today the P226 is in use by the Federal agents, and numerous law enforcement agencies. Easist gun to shoot, comfort is great!

    The Sig 226 is what our department issues. It’s a heavy plain jane looking gun but shoots as good as any gun on the market. The Sig 226 will take a beating and still function. So far I have put more then 4,000 rounds through mine and have not had a single jam or miss feed. I think the Sig is one of the best handguns on the market outdone only by some of the top of the line 1911’s

    I have dainty hands so other guns were never quite the right fit. I didn't want to pay for a gun then have to pay for different grips or sights. After trying out several different guns at a range I had the pleasure of firing the P226. It was love at first hold. I didn't even have to fire it to know it was a great fit. When I did shoot it was a noticeable difference in performance, both my aim and errors. It seemed like with several other pistols we had to call the range master over to deal with one problem or another, (true we were renting, but still). Never had one issue with the Sig! I recently bought the .40 E2 which has some great features and feels like it was made for my hand. Everyone in my family that handled it and the P229 we also have was amazed at how much better my E2 fits smaller hands. I'm biased because it's my first gun but I researched and it's everything I was looking for.

In addition to carrying it as a duty weapon it has also had approximately 25,000 rounds shot through it while engaged in competitive shooting. The stainless model which I have, is a little heavier but this helps with acquiring the target faster.

    this a well balanced handgun, the ability to hit what is aimed at. Smooth and light trigger pull whether in single or double action. The ease of working everything on the handgun

    It's a well balanced weapon that secures in the hand which enables you to have good sight alignment and sight picture.....which makes this hand gun a good choice for all round weapon for law enforcement and personal protection...I give it two thumb up........

    Lovely feel, landed first shot on much less than a mm precision on 50 yards or so.

    My absulute favorite. I find it easy to handle and rugged. It has never jammed. I live Sig Sauer.

    The P226 is accurate and reliable and fits my hand amazingly well. The quality of construction is very good, though mine was built a few years ago, prior to their more recent quality control and reliability issues.
