    That's exactly what it's for.

    Of course there are a lot of confused individuals who look to bullet golfers for advice in what to carry, but we didn't care about them anyway.

    I especially like that cutout at the muzzle. That must be so you can do a tactile check to verify the barrel is still there before you shoot.


    I hate to say it, because they do still make some quality stuff, but as a whole Sig seems to have gone the way of Vortex - all marketing and visual appeal, but lacking in solid product development. They're just catering to the masses who don't know what's good but buy whatever looks cool. Too bad because it seems to me when a company goes that direction, sacrificing build quality on legacy products comes next.

    Is it so hard for SIG to sell their legacy 226/229 slides with neither the Romeo cuts nor the dirt collecting pockmarks? Did their Caliber X-Change kits not sell well enough? There still has to be a significant number of 40/357 226 owners who would like to be able to hit the easy button and convert their gun to 9 by purchasing a complete slide, barrel, and magazine. Sig does sell a stripped 9mm slide. I should snatch one up before they realize it is on their website without all their other "improvements".

    Try to replace hardware with technique. Technique is free, lightweight, and cannot be lost.

    Having assembled a number of stripped legacy slides I find it much easier than building a Beretta slide or some others, and the SIGs tend to run with no reliability problems once complete. Legacy slides have seven internal parts and one retaining pin, requiring one thinbladed narrow screwdriver with a handle of two or three inches, one punch and something to drive it with. I have an old MGW sight pusher. Once the necessary parts arrive (took me three vendors this time and last) it takes me 10 minutes or so to populate the slide, mount the sights and assemble onto the firearm. If you can source the slides and parts, you're GTG.

    Only thing lacking: milling for RDS.

    This is for kids today that want to build their "Gucci" gun, complain about RMRs costing too much, paint it in bright colors and then stick a 1000 lumen light on it. And think they are set for a fight.
