    New Addition Came In

    I picked my new P226 TacOps (9mm) up today and can't wait to shoot it. Even got one in the "blue" case as requested. Only thing, it appears that it did come with the grey mags (which denotes the Checkmate" mags they're using now ) which are giving feed problems. Looks like I'll be shelling out more $$'s to get the Mec-Gars because I don't want to go through all that mess with my brand new Sig. Really wish they hadn't changed brands. Man, it really feels comfortable in my hand. I'll post pics when I get it cleaned up.

    Thanks to both of you. I'm really looking forward to shooting it, however, not until I get the (4) Mec-Gar mags that I ordered Sat. I just don't want to shoot it with the crap Checkmates that it came with having seen (YouTube) and hearing all of the problems that their causing. Alot of extra "unexpected" money even though I'm getting them at cost but I'd rather just start out right. Funny thing, Mec-Gar nor Sig knew that the Checkmates were the mags being shipped now (at least with the 226) until they checked after I told them. And the mags I get should have "Plus 2" marked on them with the finger groves at the bottom as well. Still hadn't had a chance to clean it properly for it's pic debut but I will when I get the new mags. I'll also sell the Checkmates at the store in which I bought my.

    Lightbulb Sig mags

    In-Sight .. you might want to check out Top Gun Supply. They have SigSauer brand magazines listed on the website, along with Mec-Gar. They have fast and realiable service, along with top quality products.
    I picked up some factory mags for my P225 , and they are flawless ....

    Thanks. I ordered the Mec's Fri. from the shop I purchased my TacOps from, for their costs. I thinks Sig screwed up on this cost cutting deal but at least I'll be getting quality mags now and I'll recoup some from selling the mags that it came with.

    Cheaper than Dirt has the MecGar 18-rounders for about $25 shipped as well. Not sure if you're in the market for more mags, but they have'em. I purchased two of them myself, and they feed flawlessly. I'll probably get another when I start carrying closer to the end of the year (gotta get that ccw permit before November, lol).

    Found the 20 round Mec-Gars for $28 and change at 2nd Amendment Shooting Supply was going to get them there. Mid $30.'s at a few other places. I asked my shop if they's match the $28 price as I'd rather keep the business locally. . . . they did it for 28. even. He even showed me that it was his cost on his computer. Well anyway, they should be in this week sometime.

    Haha, sounds like I should have shopped around more (was going to get some +2 adapters from TGC for $15 apiece + shipping; I'm still satisfied with the mags I already got, though, since they're worth what I paid and then some). Nice find.

    By the way, I love the look of the '220. Happy shooting.

    OK OK already. Here are the pics and it's a 226 not 220.









    Limp wrist (ha)



    Shakey! Holding it lefty while taking the pic right handed. The chest is safe.



    Checkmates. Not the good mags . . . The Mec-Gars have the finger grooves on the bottom, says plus 2, and with their logo.

    Got a call earlier that my mag was in. Unfortunately, mag being singular. Guess the guy didn't hit his quantity button indicating 4 but hopefully he'll order the other 3 tomorrow and I'l have them all by Fri.

    BTW, without me starting another thread, what does everyone now use for a cleaning cloth? I'm going to use this "Strike Hold" (comes in a spray can) that's getting great reviews for c/l/p. Want to wipe it down since I've been handling it and to also do a clean before the first shoot. Also, has anyone heard of this one . . . only shoot 1 rnd or 2 at the most on the first firing, clean it and it's good to go. Just added protection he says. Found that on one of the sites that I've gone to. This guy is not a quack either but he says even though it can be a slight pita it will help the pistol initially. Something about some have been known to go full auto because of not being cleaned properly.

    Not sure about this "fire a shot, clean it, then resume firing" bit, or about this full-auto stuff (first time I've heard of either), but for a cleaning cloth I just use an old T-shirt (I actually have two of them, one to cover the work space, and the other to wipe it down when I'm done cleaning it).

    I need to stop surfing forums on too little sleep...I accidentally merged 2 threads into one memory.

    Still, I love the way that bad boy looks. Happy shooting.

    I use the silicon cloth from Top Gun Supply. I use it at the range wiping down before I leave and after a cleaning at home.
