Some of you may remember my previous posts where I inherited my dad's primary gun, a stainless Sig P226 in 9mm. The gun was having some issues with springs and the trigger assembly, and I sent it into Sig for a complete breakdown, spring replacement, and they threw in tritium sights as well, all for about $140. Well worth the price, and it fixed the gun up to where it's practically a new gun. So, I've decided to finish the job and deck it out where my dad would have been proud to carry it. I bought a 1791 Gunleather holster for it, as well as Cool Hand Sunburst grips. This should finish out all of the upgrades to the gun I've had in mind since I took possession of it in 2016. I'll post up pics of the finished product when I get the grips and have them on. I'll post one with the gun in the holster as well. I'm stoked that this little project is nearing completion.

Okay, so the gun is finished ! I'm posting a pic of the old grips, then the gun with the new grips and also the holster. The grips look even better than I thought they would, and the holster is very well made and fits the Sig like a glove.

When I ordered the grips, I didn't realize that they were wraparounds, but they feel really good in my big hands. Smaller hands might have a little more trouble grasping the gun correctly, I guess it would just depend. I think getting this gun back to fighting condition and showing it a little love is just a small tip of my hat to my father, and the gun he left me. I can't wait to carry this gun now.

Getting pretty close to BBQ gun status IMO!! ;)

What a beautiful remembrance.

Pretty gun.......you did good!

I might just have to consider a set of those grips?

I have the older style 228 with the blued steel slide. I paid $300 (!!!) for mine at a pawn shop (long story). It came with one bad 10 round mag....it would not function consistently- thats probably why it was so cheap?
It looked terrible- like it had never been cleaned. Once I figured out the mag was bad....I ordered 2x15 from Greg Cote and it has never malfunctioned since.
Someone obviously did a trigger job on it because the DA/SA is like 8/3....and thats from memory. Everyone who shoots it thinks its the best shooter they have ever seen.
