I wish, it was 9 something without tax or the fees.

I was going to pick up a glock 19 instead because it was more affordable but they didn't have any in stock.

Man, that's some hefty coin for a standard 226, but if you have the money and you're okay with the price, then cool:thumbsup:. Congrats!

I love my P226R...GREAT PISTOLS!!!

Pretty much all my tax return is going to be paying this off...

Figure, if I get a 9mm... Get the best money can buy.

Where else could I have picked one up around the Norcal area for a better price?

I didn't knew where I could have picked up a cpo sig and save some cash.

very nice, but this was before the presidency too.

I wish I paid 600 for my sig.

at the store they had the glock 19 for 600.

I am considering buying a 226 (or other Sig depending on what my dad already has in his collection!), but don't see how the other option could be a Glock. How did you come to these two choices. Correct me if I am mistaken, but their actions are totally different, their weight, feel etc are all very different. How did these two become comparable to you? I am not trying to be critical, I am just trying to figure out how to prioritize different features of different guns.

Reason was the price different..

They were about $330 different however, I don't remember glock having a .22 conversion kit.

I wanted something that I can change the slide on days where I just was to put some rounds down the range without the wallet being thin.

You should have picked up a CZ 9mm and some ammo. But congrats on a nice quality firearm.

Well, so far I have about 300 rounds of 9mm in stock but planning on buying some more eventually.

Wally world has some of the best prices of 9mm. I picked up a brick of 250 9mm for $50 and another box of 50 rounds for about $9.

6 more days and I pick it up...

Fantasma, I would pick up an Cz but my friend has one :) .

Took it out last week and she did quite well.

I post up some pictures when i get a chance this week..

On a side note, I want the trijicon night sights on mine but I need some help with installing them.. Could I try it myself or should have someone else do it ?

thanks.

Boys, going to take her again this following week..

I would go tomorrow, but got a book to read and a paper to write.

On a side note,

What kind of grease does the sig 226 navy comes with? Cause I need to get more for mine but I didn't know what brand the 226 came with. I highly doubt the little pack of grease that came with will last me the whole year.

thanks.

The 226 is the perfect first handgun. It will show you why sig has the name that they do.
Enjoy.

What kind of grease did it came with?

I saw it was a bottle but I didn't know what brand of the grease was.
