Incoming P227, but wanted to tweak and play around with hammer spring weights like I used to with a 226. I know all the new guns migrated over to the E2 strut / base, but is the frame capable of taking on the "normal" 226 spring base (using Hogue G10 grips; not E2)? Obviously, I can just order the parts and do some trial-and-error, but if anyone has both the 226 and 227 at the same time, it'd be swell to know if I can just swap it over to tune with Wolff springs.

"Standard" hammer spring seat:


Thanks.

E2 seat and standard seat use the same mainspring. No need to change anything but the spring. But to answer your question, yes the new style mainspring assembly should fit. Both assemblies have the same geometry and same overall length.

Welcome to Sig Talk!!

Here's P227 SAS above P226 Mk25. Yeah, look the same...



Cheers

Thanks for taking the time to post a pic.

Weird... I swear I read somewhere long ago, when I was still running my 226 SE that the E2 plastic bases required a very slightly shorter hammer spring. Guess they're all consolidated going forward; smart business move by SIG.

Got a hammer spring variety pak (17, 18, 19) incoming :) Can't wait!

I looked on Wolffe but they didn't show separate springs for the P227. Are they the same rates as required for the P226? Hmmmm, makes me think. I have 18# &19# springs left over from my 226. I'll give it a try, can't hurt :)
Nugget, you're right. You do need the hammer springs cut for the newer plastic bases if that's what you'll be running.

And tandt's correct too. 227 & 226 hammer springs are rated the same...

Cheers
