Hi folks,

I have a Sig 228 and Sig 2022. I'm just looking for someone to install sights that I'll be supplying for the guns and a basic trigger job. Some of the smiths I've been looking at have been pricey and a little over the top. Any recommendations for a good smith and that give me a good trigger and install my sights at a decent price? Thank you.

Many of us here have used the SIG Armorer for gun work. And Gray Guns is among the best.

Those were the two that I was looking at that seem to charge a high price. This would be for two guns. I'm just looking for the trigger to be lighter and some sights installed. Has anyone had a trigger job by Sig Custom in NH?

Almost any local gunsmith should be able to install the sights. I suspect prices would be about the same for most. Some local ’smiths might even do the job properly without buggering something up.

As for working on the triggers, I am not even sure that anyone works on SIG Pro triggers, but I would not even think about anyone except the two already mentioned for top quality work. The SIG shop seems to have a reasonably good reputation, though.

As an unsolicited comment, buy enough guns and you’ll probably decide that you must adapt to the triggers rather than adapting all the triggers to you.

Well, I was in touch with the Sig Armorer who responded quickly, $75 to install the sights, while Bruce Gray's people, who also responded fast said $50 to install the sights. Neither work on the 2022 although Grays Guns will do so in the near feature so it looks like I'll be just sending the 228. At this point, I'm leaning towards sending it to Grays and have a local person install the sights.

Have you looked up Total Automation. GerryR, a forum member here has reasonable prices.

I did, not ruling him out but still leaning towards Grays guns.

Be sure to ask about turn around times if that is a concern for you.
I know for sure that roberts quoted times are spot on and often shorter then quoted.
Robert is local to me and i know him and his work well. You will be very pleased with his services.

That's a good point. His prices are reasonable too and may be able to do the work faster, which is a consideration. Thank you for the info.

I've seen a lot of mixed reviews. Maybe for the 2022 since no one works on that gun but I'd rather send the 228 to Grays or the Sig Armorer.

Don't forget to add in shipping charges. Fedex/UPS run about $80 to send to vendor. Then you'll be charged for return shipping by the vendor (variable) as well.

I have a Gen4 G19 I was going to send out for some minor frame mods. Shipping was $83 to vendor and $20 return. The actual work was only $50. $153 for $50 worth of work. Decided to do it myself.

Been shooting for over 50 years. Early on I decided to learn how to do some things myself. Action work on my revolvers, 1911's and Sigs. General maintenance/repairs on those plus some Glock mods. Sight replacements on all my pistols. I've saved a fortune, plus I find it enjoyable.

Based on your posts re just the P228 to Grayguns for action work, that's not going to be inexpensive. It will be $295 plus shipping for the action work alone. Around $400 total.

Generally, good gunsmiths have never been inexpensive.

I'll re-iterate the wait times as someone mentioned above. A friend sent a M11-A1 to GGI to get converted to DAK, 18 months later he got his gun back, work wasn't in the scope of his hopes. Sent the same gun to Robert,The Sig Armorer, and the requested work was done,gun returned in 7-8 days. I had a Project JK 226 done by Robert and his turn around time was 7 days, the gun was out of my possession for 39 days as after disassembly/action work Robert sent the gun,at my request,to Robar for nickel plating. Robar then sent the gun back to Sig Armorer for final assembly and testing before shipping back to me. Robert's prepaid shipping was $70 round trip through FedEx.

Interesting. I was ready to send in a pistol for frame work. Under shipping instructions they stated: "You may ship your frame using UPS or FedEx". Thanks for the heads up. I rarely send guns out.

Apparently FFL to FFL is different from your own address to FFL.

I always ship via my local shop. Saves me from being treated like a terrorist.

The SIG custom shop offers a $55 VIP Roundtrip FedEx deal. My 229 is there now via their $55 VIP Roundtrip price.

So, today my P229 came home from the SIG Custom Shop. I sent it in to have 3 things done, 1) converted from DAK to DA/SA, 2) a SRT (Short Reset Trigger) and 3) their AEP (Action Enhancement Package). I used their $55 VIP round trip FedEx option and it shipped out on Friday the 24th of May and arrived there on 28th (the 27th was Memorial Day). I got notice that it was being returned on the 31st and it arrived today, the 4th of June, that is damned fast. I wondered if they forgot something, they didn't. So I pull my Lyman electronic trigger pull gauge out and for an average of 20 pulls here is what I am now getting, and these numbers seem lighter than expected. I pulled 10 and thought I was doing something wrong, I repeated it and I was very careful to keep the roller on the middle the trigger and pulling straight back: 20 pulls in DA is 5 pounds and 6 ounces, SA is 2 pounds and 3.8 ounces.

What I can say is “Wow!”, all of this with these results in 4 shop days is outstanding. I will have to get to the range with to see how well it ignites the primmers.

Just got back from shooting at the local indoor range for a check on sight regulation and accuracy and then went to our local outdoor range to shoot steel plates.

I shot 4 boxes (200 rounds) of GECO 124gr, a box of Winchester NATO 124gr and a half box of the new Federal SYNTECH 124gr ammo through each handgun.

There were no failures to fire in almost 500 rounds of some mixed ammo.
I was really interested to see how the Winchester NATO fired.

Again, no light strikes.
