Just noticed tonight that when my slide is back and I pull the trigger, it catches. I got home and took the grips off (E2-not easy) and noticed that when the slide is back, the trigger bar just barely nicks the piece that releases the hammer (sear?). I bought the gun used and it was in really good condition, but I noticed the magazine release was on the right side of the gun. (Kind of like it there) Could the trigger bar spring be holding the bar up just a little bit? Maybe bent? Your thoughts? The gun shoots fantastic.

It sounds to me like the disconnect tab on the trigger bar may be worn such that it is not completely disconnecting the trigger bar from the sear. You may be close to going automatic.

I did some online research and what you say could be the problem. The disconnect tab is not rounded like my 226. The is a definite difference in height. I did notice at one point, that the trigger bar would stay in the lowered position until I moved the trigger. I have since corrected this. I am ordering another trigger bar. I noticed that if I manually push done on the disconnect, the catching is gone.

The first pic is my 226 disconnect tab. The second is the 229.

I don't see a significant difference in the disconnector tab in the two pictures. Is the trigger bar spring seated correctly? It should be in the notch on the trigger bar (green circle), not in the hole (red circle). The pic is a P220 image I stole form the net, but your trigger bar should look similar wrt the spring position.

That old P220 has the wrong Trigger bar spring on it. Nothing to do with our question though.

The trigger bar and spring were installed correctly. I'm trying to get another trigger bar-I already have the spring kit. My trigger bar is stamped 801. I bought one, but it was stamped 463, which is supposed to work in a 229, but is too big at the hammer end-the bar won't lower. Looks like Photobucket is down right now.

Is the 473 bar for a DAK?

I'm not sure what it is for, but all the ones for sale on auction sites are 473.

Trigger Bar #473 is for P226, P229 DA/SA in Black Super Finish with the following caveats.

Here is what a listing on ebay states.

This is a listing for a Sig P226-P229 DA/SA New Trigger Bar ( One Unit ). The replacement Trigger Bar is stamped 473 on the inside of the trigger bar and can be seen through the top of the magazine well for inspection identification.

This upgraded Trigger Bar will not inter change with the older model German Frames Models in the P226/P228 models.

They are for the Classic Line Sig Pistols with Frames made in the US between 2009 and 2014.

They will not fit in Stainless Steel Models in the P226/P229-SS Models

This statement makes me think that these bars, much like GGI's new SOT trigger bar, will only fit in Sig frames with the DAK cut-out.

I agree, the newer T.B. (#473) are taller in the back portion so they are not compatible with older P-Series pistols with the standard cut-out trigger bar area. Having said that, I believe that it wasn't until 2005 that SIG started to make most aluminum framed pistols with the DAK cut-out and I am not sure if any newer steel framed pistols ever did.

Standard cut-out

That's good news, but don't leave us wondering. Did you get the new 473 trigger bar to work or did you get a different one.

The 473 would not work. I had to send it back. I e mailed Brownells and asked if there trigger bars were stamped 801. They were. Listed for around $52.00 and I paid around $36.00.

UPDATE: The 473 trigger bar is for the DAK compatible frame. The 801 if for the standard frame.
