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 online) and would like to have a second opinion about it. Besides that particular question, Im so far delighted with this beautiful german made piece :)

Copied from SigFreund from the other forum:

Barrel: If the pistol exhibits keyholing or unacceptable accuracy.
Decocking lever spring: 10,000
Extractor: 20,000
Extractor spring: 20,000
Firing pin: 20,000
Firing pin spring: 20,000
Magazine spring: When magazine fails to lock the slide open. *
Recoil spring: 5,000 †
Roll pins for breechblock retention (pins, HD): 5000 ‡
Safety lock spring: 20,000
Slide catch lever and spring: 10,000 §
Takedown lever: 20,000
Trigger bar spring: 10,000

You can also consider sending it in to Sig for their service package. They'll detail strip it, give everything an ultrasonic cleaning, and replace any parts that need it.

TW-25B is a great grease and many here use it.

Congrats on the 228; it's one of the best combat pistols ever made.

The main thing is to keep it clean and lubed ,I personally clean my pistols every time they have been used, or if carried at least once a week.

Take the grips off and check inside to see how dirty or not it is inside.

Don,t over lube it.

if it,s an older 228 I would think about getting the springs changed, if you are competent enough do it yourself or get a gunsmith or sig armorer to do it.

what DBS has posted above is perfect. we must have been replying at the same time. :)
