    Sig P226 vs. CZ SP-01 ??

    With a bit of research, I have found these two guns (Sig P226 and the CZ SP-01) for about the same price (both 9mm and both with a rail)

    In terms of a gun for home protection, which of these two guns ranks higher in terms of reliability and being most accurate? I realize both Sig and CZ make quality handguns, so we may be splitting hairs in this one -- but anything you can offer would be much appreciated!

    thank you in advance!

    If you aren't going to take them outside I'd say toss a coin. In a harsh environment I'd go with the SIG. If I was going to compete with it I'd get the CZ and have a trigger job done on it.

    Either will do if you learn how to use it. They are both high quality firearms.

    I have shot both and I own two Cz's...a Cz 75 Shadow 9mm and a Cz 2075 RAMI.
    They are lighter and better than the Sig's...more accurate than a Sig, and you can get a better hammer/trigger job on a Cz than on a Sig.

    Hands-down, the Cz is a much better choice.

    But every hand is cut different and every finger is a little different. For some people, the Sig is a better fit. I personally find the accuracy of the Cz and its weight the two key differentiators.

    But, get an Angus Hobdell hammer/trigger job done on it....and you will be then envy of the gun club.

    Good training is more important than the gun, though.
    Good luck with your decison

    There is no doubt in my mind the CZ is the better weapon in this case.
    This is just my opinion, but it is a good opinion with a lot if quality criteria to base it upon.

    Again as it has been said: It's a toss up!

    For ME.... I'm a SIG owner! But for you????
    Shoot each if you can and then make YOUR decision !

    Good Luck,

    Lateck,

    I think the CZ is one of the best fighting handguns ever made, but for me, the ergonomics of the 226 are better. Both will serve you well. Parts/magazines may be more difficult to find for the CZ.

    Sig. CZ is a nice gun. Reliable, shoots well. Mine NEEDED a trigger job because of "trigger bite". Made it no fun to shoot at the range. Sold it, and bought another Sig.

    Right now, I only own two Sigs (three if you call the Trailside 22 a Sig). No CZ's.

    Have you considered Glock? I have found the Glock 17 one of the easiest pistols to shoot. If you train with it, you will become proficient.

    Anyway, my preferences are just that -- mine. You, on the other hand really should buy the one that fits you better. You will be shooting it.

    By the way, practice, practice, practice.

    I own both and both are excellent guns.

    My preference by far are my Sig's

    Here's my P226 - It's a Swiss Police gun - trade-in in 9mm -



    I bought it for $300 .. sent the slide to CCR for a $79 slide job and added Hogue Aluminum Grips

    I sold my CZ SP01 but here is my CZ 85 Combat in 9mm



    Not to confuse the issue, but I'd suggest that you also look at the Beretta PX4 Storm - they are great too.



    To me ... my Sig's feel better / point better / shoot better.

    But that's just me.

    You should shoot both ... you'll know quickly which brand you like / shoot best.

    Hi
    I have both a sig p226 and a CZ shadow and although I had always wanted a sig, my CZ out of the box walks circles around it. But like others say, you have to have one that fits you and practice a fair bit

    My personal preference is CZ, but more Sig experience might sway me the other way.

    It's a great shooter too.

    I didnt look at the sig but i went looking for a CZ75 they had both the 75B and the SP-01. I felt the 75b first and then when i felt the SP-01 i bought it.

    The feel and the weight of the SP-01 and i was sold.

    I think the weight of it really cuts down on the recoil it shoots really good i like it alot.

    sig 226
    the gun actually won the army contract but Sig's maintenance costs lost them the contract to beretta
    the sig is a better pistol
