Broke my new Sig 226 Stainless elite out of SSE jail last week. Took it to the range yesterday. After the first trigger pull I was amazed at how light a recoil was felt. After 250 rounds later I can only say WOW. I wish I brought more ammo. This gun is awesome. Its the nicest 9mm I have ever shot. It's a heavy metal gun so recoil is not even an issue. I have shot glocks, XDs, etc and this has spoiled me. Its like finally sitting in first class. I am ruined now! The trigger is great and I like the short trigger reset. No issues with white Box Walmart Winchester 100 packs or the Federal 50 pack. The 3 extra mags (MecGar) performed great.

Here are a couple photos. Any inaccuracy is the shooter, not the gun. But hey, I am getting better. I shot almost the same at 30ft but I didn't snap a picture. the gun is dead on!

Sweet! I love my p226 stainless as well. Shot about 100 rounds then tried my friend's M&P9 and was like gee why so much recoil? Haha

Nice buy! Looks like Sig has changed their serrations from the older Elite models.

Congrats. I use MK25 myself.

Personally, I believe P226 is the perfect pistol.

Just me.

Oh yeah, i was gonna ask...are the grips like wood wood, or are they rubberized, or plastic?

Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback. They are the factory wood grips, cherry I think, not just cheap plastics. They feel good to shoot but I am actually debating getting these:http://www.opticsplanet.com/hogue-sig-sauer-p226-aluminum-matte-clear-anodized-26164.html.

I just the the clear on stainless would look awesome. Ghost Gun!

Glad somebody commented on the black talons! I threw those in the pic for the fun of it. Some history from dad's old stash.

Interesting, are the wood ones grippy?

Also, thanks for that link. That would indeed look pretty wicked on a stainless gun.

It came with 2 mags right? Any snap caps included?

Why do I always seem to have a different experience than other people with Sigs? :S

If you go with the clear ones, I recommend the glossy grips. I got the matte ones at first and they didn't look right. The glossy ones as seen in my pic look much better to me.

Great choice. I have a P226R in .40sw with the new E2 grips and night sights. It's one bad *** gun!!

Is the frame of the stainless Sig also stainless steel? Or aluminum like the parkerized ones?

Stainless models are completely stainless, including the frame. Unlike the nitron models, where only the slides are stainless.

Pretty much, although they do now have a Stainless model that is all stainless steel and nitron. Its rather new though.

Very interesting! Too bad it probably won't be on CA Roster though.
