    "I have a very nice Browning Hi Power said I."

    My single action BHP EDC earned me the title "dinosaur" 20 plus years ago when the guys I worked with were carrying Glocks. I still carry it.

    My mk25 RX no longer wears a romeo1, but now has a holosun. I had the cutout modified to accept holosun or RMRs

    A DAO SIG 229 frame, received yesterday, fitted with mostly new TDA action parts and E2, topped with a spare .40 slide:

    229Mk2.jpg

    The first round, at three yards, was a Ranger JHP, the other 11, at 3,5,7 and 10y, were 180 gr FMJ. Each three-round set started with a DA shot. I chickened out after 10y when I saw the group. Point of aim, point of impact.

    I am amazed again at how well SIG parts play together.

    Solid shooting, I'm assuming that the DAO > TDA was a straightforward parts swap, similar to putting a SRT in?

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

    Yes. Except the decocking lever bearing, which because of my large and clumsy fingers takes me 10 minutes minimum to get into place. I'm gonna use a knife blade or spatula next time.

    The DAO parts were covered in some sort of gack and included a DAO spur hammer, a short trigger, a "yellow" hammer spring, the bearing, a vestigial decocker base and a spring. The pull with those parts was somewhere around 20 pounds.

    The yellow spring is purportedly 18# and I retained that.
