Why does the take lever take so much effort to rotate compared to my P226? I now carry a small pair of channel locks in case I need to take it down during a competition or range trip. I have installed a Bruce Gray guide rod but even with the OEM it's becoming a PITA
TIA Greg

Some seem to come from SIG more difficult to turn than others, judging by comments posted here. Mine was somewhat stiff when new, but I could still manage it, and it has smoothed out some over time. I still hold the gun so I can push down from the top with my stronger thumb, rather than levering it from the side. Make sure to keep some oil on the lever shaft, and especially on the O-ring. Mine is still more difficult to turn than other SIG models I have owned.

I have Bruce's guide rods in every one of my 320's. While stiff, none require anything more than finger pressure to rotate.

I can rotate my 320s takedown lever more easily while my pistol is laying on a cleaning mat. All the force is applied to the lever instead of fighting myself by holding the pistol in one hand and using the thumb of the other hand to rotate it.
