Right out of the box a SAO trigger pull of 5.5, 5.75, and 5.75 #s. This is unimpressive for a SAO P226 Legion. But, the reset is great. The fit and finish is superb. Overall, pretty average considering the price-point and the heavy SAO trigger pull. I did not expect to put out more cash to get a supposed Legion trigger pull. I would not repurchase this firearm if I could do it over. I hope you have a better experience than I am having. However, I'm happy with my other four Sigs.
I’ve had my P226 Legion less than one year. I’ve fired between 700-800 rounds. I shoot IDPA so I do a lot of dry-firing. With the price of ammo now dry firing is the best way to practice. I always use a snap cap or laser cartridge when I dry fire. I noticed the laser was no longer shooting the laser in my 226. I removed the slide and depressed the firing pin block and pushed the firing pin out. When I released the pin, it did not retract. I contacted Sig customer service and they emailed me a shipping label. I sent the pistol in. A few days later I received a call from Sig. I was told that the firing pin and the retaining pin were damaged. The rep said dry firing is equivalent to firing and I had dry fired the pistol excessively. And as a result it voided my warranty. I always always use a snap cap or the laser when I dry fire. So apparently the P226 Legion is only expected to fire 2,000 or less. Anything over that is excessive. Sig charged me $85 for shipping and the repair. Really? With the millions of dollars they have in government contracts, they void my warranty and charge me $85? I paid way too much for this pistol for it not to last more than 2,000 rounds. There are several lesser quality firearms that have a much better warranty and customer service. I’m not happy at alll.
Smooth Operating Pistol! Holds up to its reputation!
I’ve been wanting a P226 for awhile but do to the gun & ammo shortage it took awhile to get one that wasn’t way overpriced. It shoots fantastic!!!! All my rounds were dead center within a 2 inch diameter. It is a very smooth operating gun (No vibrating/loose parts). A little pricy but well worth it! Get what you pay for. QUALITY!!!
I have a kimber 10mm an 10mm is the best caliber there is i bought a p220r LEGION 45acp love this gun smooth shooting accurate then i got it in p220r LEGION 10mm wow this gun shoots circles around the kimber 10mm camp gaurd i really am impressed with sig sauer quality extremely well built an easy to shoot as well as accurate i want to get another legion in 357sig but their not in production only in 9mm id rather use a slingshot than a 9mm ive shot the p229 in 357sig an its 10 times the gun a 9mm is please start producing it in 357sig i would buy a p229 p226 an p320 legion in 357sig i dont want no 9mm bbgun
I own a few other Sig models, AXG Scorpion, M18 and a few more but so far this is the best handling firearm i own. The grips feel right even with my sweaty hands, no slip-age. The weight reduces recoil for immediate target reacquisition, and is just plain old fun to shoot. A light, crisp trigger with an amazingly quick reset makes it easy to knock out targets further than 25 yds. No function issues at all used 100 rds 115 herters and 100 rds Sig 115 FMJ and 50or so rds of 124 sig JHP. Don't pass up the 226 legion, if you are lucky enough to find one...
The P226 Legion DA/SA is my first Sig and let me say it is exceptional in all regards. The accuracy, as Clint Eastwood might say, is "marvelous". Tight groups are the norm, even for a novice as myself. The grip, the aim, the overall shooting experience is addictive with this fine pistol. De-cocker makes it even safer. It truly is a gem at the range and is perfect for home defense with the big green sights that glow in the dark. The P-Sait trigger is smooth as silk and makes shooting in DA or SA a pleasure, while recoil is barely noticeable. A fine piece of engineering and worth the extra price. This is THE gun you pass down to family.
Best full size duty pistol I’ve had the pleasure of shooting.
I spent 20 years in the military carrying the Beretta 92F and really developed a love of metal, hammer fired DA/SA pistols. I shot a friends P226 and was impressed with how well made it felt and how well it shot. I was just recently able to pick up to find a P226 Legion in stock and didn’t hesitate to make it mine. My first trip to the range left me very happy with my purchase. I was able to to run 250rds trough it that day without a single issue. I ordered a OWB leather holster which showed up the Thursday before and IDPA match on Saturday. So I figured why not take a pistol I’ve barely had a chance to shoot with a leather holster that’s not yet broke in to a match. I don’t regret my choice. Now I’ve gotten so use to using my 320 X5 Legion for matches the DA first shot was weird the first stage, but by the last stage it was natural feeling. I managed to finish 10th out of 27 shooters on that last stage and 13th overall, with a pistol that was still very new to be. Everything just feels right with this pistol. It’s well balanced, the recoil control is great, I love the sights and it’s very accurate. I will continue to use my 320 X5 Legion for my primary match gun but this P226 Legion will get used frequently for IDPA. If I’m going to carry it I need to practice with it. This pistol is my favorite to shoot and it gives me great confidence as a carry pistol. Highly recommend.
An absolutely gorgeous firearm from the Sig line up, and it doesn’t stop at just looks. This gun just down right performs. I have ran a bunch of different rounds through it, and this legion doesn’t skip a beat. I’ve owned the gun for over a year now, and it’s been suppressed for about 6 months now. I like to run Lawman 147 grain through it with the can. If you’re looking for a legendary pistol with updated features, you seriously can’t beat this Sig.
I bought this gun from my LGS. Love this firearm. I’m typically a Glock guy but this gun has won me over. When I get home from work I take off my concealed carry gun and put this on OWB. Love it!!! My only issue is that it comes with three flush fit 15 round 9mm magazines. The problem is that Mec-Gar makes flush fit 18 round 9mm magazines that didn’t cause feeding issues like my factory magazines did. If I’m paying the Legion price I expect the higher capacity flush fit magazines. I would recommend this pistol in conjunction with the Mec-Gar magazines that are cheaper than factory mags and run a bit better. Ps. I do conceal this and it is great!!!
The best -out-of-the box I’ve owned. Great grips, smooth trigger pull and the gun simply looks incredible. My first time shooting the Legion, I impressed myself with how well I shot. Umm, I mean how well the gun shot. Honestly, it’s the best gun I’ve ever held in my hands.
I recently bought the SA version and it is nothing short of perfect for me. I am an ok shooter but to rip out the bullseye at 50 feet or me was phenomenal! To steal a line from the most popular gun reviewer on Youtube, " This thing is a laser beam". 10 out of 10 hands down!
I have extensive sales training with most major brands of firearms. Not just product knowledge but actual hands on range time. Before shooting the 226 legion sao my hands down favorite pistol was the 1911. Even the cheap ones are outstanding. The design has proven itself over and over to be one of the best ever. That being said the SAO legion has the finest single action trigger I have ever shot. I can do things with this pistol I have never been able to do with any other. I don’t care how long you have to wait to get one. It is worth it. If your a pistol enthusiast you must have one of these in your collection. I would put this gun up against any custom hand built pistol money can buy.
