As the title says I am new to Sigs. I was at the gun store paying on my Beretta Mini Cougar and decided I really liked the feel of a use p226 she had. So today when I paid off the Beretta I test fired the Sig and was convinced I wanted it. I know they have a great reputation and for $425 I figured it was a good deal. So while I make payments I would like to learn about it. It is marked made in Germany and don't have a rail. It also does not have the same grips as the new ones. Can anyone give me an idea when they started putting the rail and new style grips on the .226? BTW it is in 9mm and only has one 15 round mag. I will be wanting at least 1 new mag and night sights when I get it.
So feel free to teach a new Sig owner the ropes.

re: New to Sigs

Sigs are great pistols.

The 226 with rails was introduced around the end of 2002.

Don't know about the grips.

An extra mag will cost you around $35.00

If you don't know anything about the history or maintenence or your 226, you can send it to Sig, and for $129.95 this is what they will do for you:

Detail strip entire firearm, inspecting critical components
• Replace most commonly worn springs
• Install new night sights
• Lubricate, reassemble, and function check
• Return in factory lockable box (if needed)
• P230/P232 models excluded

re: New to Sigs

Picked up my Sig last weekend. I was happy to find it did have night sights that work just fine. I am very happy with it so far. One thing I really like is I was hitting the x at 15 feet in double action mode within the first mag. I still can't shoot that good with my Beretta's in DA. I have watched the video's on the Sig website on lubrication just to see how they recommend it and it is the same as how I already lube my Beretta's.
