Congratulations. Safe shooting.
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.
Congratulations. Safe shooting.
You will love it.
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.
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 ....
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).
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.
by the way, were are this pics of this beast? anytime someone gets a new toy, pics should be posted so we can enjoy, and or get extremely jealous!
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.
now thats what im talkin about! awesome gun
Oh yeah .. that's a beauty. There's nothing like a new Sig (or pics) to increase your heart rate .......
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.
Ahhhh. Very nice indeed.
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.
Here's a couple of my others that I also wiped down while I was at it . . .
My Beretta .380 and for home defense my Colt Cup Series 70 .45
Any brand of silicone gun cloth will be great for a wipe down, after your cleaning or handling of the pistol. I recently picked up a couple Hoppe's Gun Reel Silicone Clothes. Yes,, that Hoppe's.
I also have a couple cloths from Top Gun.
You will find out that over time, you'll accumulate a large variety of cleaning supplies and so on ..
Just like holsters.
