    Hey Guys. Just joined from SW Ohio. Currently on my second Sig pistol. My first was a P225 A1 Classic. It was such a sweet little pistol. It was a smooth shooter and so nicely made. I did not however care for the way the mags were made. Seemed like such an after thought. My latest is a P228. It...

    I just bought a new to me P228 red box JK (101 1XX) in excellent condition and today I noticed a P229 SAS .357 slide for sale, so being from California where those are very rare I bought it anticipating 3 scenarios: 1). Being able to use the SAS slide on my P228 and maybe get a 9MM barrel from...

    I’m trying to understand a couple of light strikes I got on my W. German P228 (KB,1991). Gun had been renewed with new springs and also thoroughly cleaned and lubed. After that, over a couple of months I shot five boxes (total) of Speer Lawman 124 gr and 147 gr. No problems. Two weeks ago...

    I know. I know. There are 16,000,000 threads devoted to "pre-ban" magazines and the different methods to determine whether they are actually "pre-ban" or not. These threads generally devolve into some sort of "who cares", "get the heck out of Massachusetts", or "its not worth taking the risk"...

    Hi Guys, I finally did it! I got my first Sig. :D I had read a lot about the P228 and had been in the hunt for a long time. I saw prices on the on-line auctions and watched them slip out of range. Others I saw had some markings but looked like they were hybridized or german parts but...

    I just got a triple-serial-number 1991 W. German P228 from 12131. Very nice gun, and it fills a gap in my growing collection. I've been reading about the German-made P228's for so long that I had to try one. This one's in great condition. I cleaned it this morning and fired a mag of Speer...

    Project "Junkyard Dog" begins now. This old IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) P228 (1993 production, should be KD) was decommissioned after being used in any number of abusive ways. It's got more wear, scrapes, and dings than I've ever seen on a firearm. The original grip panels are worn down from...

    Hello Everyone My name is George, I'm from Cleveland Ohio (Parma) for now, retired and own two Sigs. Actually both are recent acquisitions. A sweet 9mm P938 with Hogue rubber grips and extended mag. that replaced a Ruger LCP. Only slightly bigger, but a SO much more capable weapon. Just...

    Hello everyone, new here but a longtime SIG owner (P228). I am 1 day away from picking up my P224 Extreme that came up on CalGuns.net. Can't wait to get that. I was out shooting on Friday, and for some strange reason, my P228 - after I shot the last round - the slide didn't stay open. I suspect...

    A "gun smith" jammed a drill down the barrel of my west german p228. Advice? So this gun seems to have a dark cloud over it. I got a basically nib west german p228 with 3 matching serials a long time ago. It's the nicest pistol i've ever fired and it's served me very well and i take...

    I have a complete P228 slide and wanting to revive this old charm back from the dead. I am looking for a compatible frame. I've been looking for a while and now I am setting my ego aside and asking for help. Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Just found an M11 US marked. B SN range. Is this for real? I heard a story that the AF had "released" some M11s several years ago. Do not know what this means. Can anyone help? P938 P220 S4 P220 Carry P226 P226 Navy P228 M11-A1 P229 P230 P232 P239 9mm P239 .40 Mosquito

    I used to have a P229 SAS gen2 and loved the thing, I regret ever getting rid of that pistol. I love Sigs and now trying to get back into the scene. So, here's my situation: I'm trying to build a P228 pistol. I've got a complete upper without the sights yet and I am looking for complete lowers...

    Ok guys, I've been lurking for along time but now it's time to dive into the deep end. Have a lot of pistols but no Sigs and have my heart set on a German P228. Want a shooter that I can be proud of and see triple serial number guns for big bucks or cheap and beat. Have a bead on a frame only...
  17. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Hey guys, I recently picked up a 1991 West German P228 with original box and docs in a trade. Has the night sights, 3 mags etc. Very good condition; there is a bit of holster wear as it was a LEO backup carry, carried much and shot little. The internals look brand new. I had a guy try to say...

    Just swapped out the OEM Sig grips on my M11-A1 with the E2 grips. Took roughly 3 minutes to complete. I ordered the Sig p229 E2 Grip Kit from Top Gun Supply (which arrived in two days). Since my M11-A1 already had the new de-cock lever I only had to make the changes to the hammer spring and...

    Just bought a Sig p6/p225 and I am unable to confirm what the crest/logo is on the side of the slide hoping someone can fill me in.

    Hi guys!, Im a relatively new Sig owner (got the P228 a couple of months ago), and I was wondering what would be the best maintenance regime for this particular pistol?. Also I just got a Mil-Comm TW25B grease (don't know if its the best option out there, but it seems to be for what I read...
