Does the full size 227 use the same grip screws as the 226? 220? I need the screws and bushings (P227)and where to find them.
I believe that the larger no-lip bushings are for the P224/229C. Those models use the same design concept for grip mounting as the P227, but different parts. And, no, I have no idea why they are different.It took me a couple of tries for Sig to get the right ones to me...the larger
no-lip bushings kept showing up....not even sure what those go to....but I have plenty of them now.
I just sent Chris an email inquiring about the hardware. I can only assume no matter what, between the cost of the hardware and the G10 grips from CDNN it still has to be way cheaper than buying from Hogue & Sig Sauer.I would recommend that you get the bushings that are specific to the P227. They are made a little different. The P224s will work but the P227s are a bit "meatier" and fit flush into the recesses in the P227's grip frame.
I bought mine from Chris Opila at Opila Arms P.O. BOX 43. Merrimack, NH 03054-0043, [email protected].
I have attached pics to show the differences.
The first pic with one bushing and one screw is the P224 grip screw bushing.
The second picture of four bushings are the P227 bushings. You can see how they have a "step" in their shape that allows them to recess and create a flush surface inside the grip frame. They also come in the P227 Parts Kit if you want too get that from him for a little more.
This is true! The deal on CDNN is a steal. I had to check model numbers and do a comparison of pics just to make sure I was looking at the right grips. Too good to be true? Not this time. Outsourcing the bushings took a little bit of forum reading. I'm hoping my bushings come in the mail today. I'd really like to check out the new grips this weekend.I just sent Chris an email inquiring about the hardware.
