Default Anyone have a Sig P226 Legion SAO?

Hows the trigger and overall fit? Would like to know accuracy potential? Are they fit better than a standard P226?

I shot it several times. The trigger press wad smooth but not light. The weight felt like 3.5 to 4 pounds. It was the most comfortable handgun I've ever shot.

Yup. Nice crisp trigger with short reset. Good fit and finish. Stiff safety.

Doesn't fit my hand like CZ's do.

Off to the Sig Armorer for a 2.5 lb trigger job Let's see if he can beat David Milam.

Trigger is amazing and pistol is very soft shooting. Short reset. For some reason I don't shoot mine as well as my other pistols but I think it's related to the sights, which most people love. I've had the DASA and SAO

The trigger on the one I handled is clean as I got to dry fire it twice. The owner didn’t want too much handling with his safe queen, so trying it out at the range was out of the plan.

Same experiences here on mine with only 100rounds through it to date. Wonder if the stiff safety will break in once shot more. My X5E Supermatch has a stiff safety as well nevertheless but it’s also very new.

Don't do it. Once you've tasted that awesomeness you'll want it. Crave it. Lust after it. I shot a 226 Legion 226.....I died a little. lol

Re: "'My X5E Supermatch has a stiff safety as well "

That puzzles me. The safety of my X5 Competition is the easiest safety to operate that I've ever experienced. Its detents are crisp and positive, and its throw is fairly long, but still very to move to either position without shifting my grip. Part of the credit for that goes to its generously-sized thumb tabs.

Put a few hundred rounds through SAO version, frickin' awesome. Trigger is way nicer than my 226 with 15k rounds through it. No issue with safety as others have mentioned. Safety is not like 1911 selector as part is small in comparison. Sights are spot on, typical Sig hold, place glowing orb and bullet to follow. I'd say its worth the price and trouble chasing one down.

Same here, seems to be the same stiff safeties across all my X5s with adjustable triggers, the safety engagements are smoothest on my X5 Tactical gen 1 and X5E Tactical models.

Some of the models are new in box and the few others a very little rounds through them

way better than the tacops that i had. imo with the placement of the safety, your thumb is rested on it, which kinda grips the gun into a natural vise in your hand so theres better follow up shots. love the gun. the flat trigger makes it so much better than stock trigger, but i took it to a shooting class given by a local sheriff department, and they measured the pull at 2.9 lbs twice.

Friend of mine had one. Shot nice, but the finish flaked off the rear of the frame. It was one of the first models though.
