Sig web site says the .40 S&W comes with a 10 or 12 round mag.

So with the 10 round mag, how is it not CA compliant?

And this one says it comes with a 12 round mag which i know is not legal but says it's CA compliant.

Might be the wrong color...

Could be. Was looking for an all stainless .40 Sig, instead of just two tone.

Equinox is, Elite is not. Ten round mags only.

The SIG P226R Elite (http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/Sho...&productid=169) is not on the approved list.

The SIG P226R Equinox (http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/Sho...7&productid=80) is on the approved list.

you have to forget the mag capacity, Sig will only send the 10rd one to CA...that has nothing to do with compliance

it's all about being on the list...the beavertail, front slide serrations and SRT of the Elite are enough to make it different enough to miss the list.

if you just want an all stainless .40, why not just get a 226ST in .40...it's actually a better shooter than the Elite anyway

I pulled the trigger, so to speak...

This is exactlly the gun I just bought tonight, the P226R all stainless .40 S&W. This was what I really wanted but I did not see the all stainless R (rail) model listed on the Sig site but the store had one new in stock, so I bought it. The booklet/mini catalog that came with the gun also did not show a 226R all stainless listed either. But it does exist. I'm gonna check again, maybe it was listed as CA non compliant and was wrong on the site.

My God the gun is beautifull. So glad I spent the extra money and got the Sig. I looked at and handeled a Glock 23 and I was right, I just don't like plastic guns.

If I had to pack a duty gun around all day I would definatlly get a Glock, no question but I like heafty feeling guns, since it's mostly for sport shooting, like basically all of my guns. I already picked up Hogue fingered rubber grips too. those grips are really gonna make it look and feel so much nicer, even though it feels really damn nice as is but i like rubber grips. I have the Houges on another gun and love them.

I'll put up picks of both the Sig 522LR and the P226 next Saturday. A Merry late Christmas for me.

you'll be very happy with the 226ST...you're right, it isn't on their site and it isn't cataloged either, but it's on the CA list.

Sig keeps the 226ST and the 220ST in production for sale in CA because they haven't been able to get the Elite approved...they'll pop up in other states, they they are intended for CA. a lot like Dan Wesson will keep the CBOB in production just for sale to CA

i've never understood how folks can carry the all stainless around all day, i got mine, in 9mm, for USPSA Production Class. i just got it back from Apex Tactical in Moro Bay after i had the action tuned and the reset shortened
