Will this work w/ any P series? I've got two older P230's and a modern P226.

PGT,

No, the P-Shim will work on your P226, but not on those pretty P230's.

I'd need diagrams, measurements, and more info - or better, have one in front of me to come up with a workable solution. The lever arm is long, so it might be better to use a slider button (requires drilling lever to fix in place) or a rub strip under the lever and covered by the grip.

If using the rub strip idea, you'll want to use a bit of UHMW-PE tape with acyrlic adhesive, 10 mils thick would be good. Clean the surface of the frame with mineral spirits and then denatured alcohol. Apply strip of tape. Should last a good long time as the acrylic is at least resistant to oil . . . . if you'd like to try that, contact me via my profile email and I'll send you a Karma short length of tape - just have to remember to get some as it's at my hangar.

UHMW PE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) is the strongest long chain polymer plastic, almost as slippery at Teflon and way tougher. 1" thick will stop a .45 (but probably not a .40 :c)

I believe the best part is that it eliminates the friction at the front of the lever which makes a much smoother operation.

Thanks John!!


I like these shims so much I just sent an email to order two more.

Thanks

I ordered 5 today. Bumper was a perfect gentleman to work with via E-Mail. Will post a review when I do my first installation.

A member here w/ '89 W. German P226, got back to me saying standard .008" thick P-Shim was too tight on his gun.

Anyone else had a fitting issue on one of the older guns?

I'm waiting for more info and a feeler gauge measurement - will see about making him a thinner P-shim if that's what it takes.

I received the two additional ones I ordered. One was for an early P228 West German and the other for an "NSW" prefix P226 Navy. I saw this post so I tried one in the Navy first - would not work - too tight. Put the same shim in the P228 and it worked great.

Tried the second shim in the Navy and too tight also.

The tolerances on the Navy are much closer than any other SIG I own except for my P210's. To be honest, I don't think a thinner shim will help the Navy.

So I now have an extra shim. Guess I will have to buy another SIG to install it in!

Received the shim in record time.
This should be on all P series Sig's from the factory.
I ordered a second shim for my other Sig.
Simple install and removes all the slop from the decocking lever.
Buy with confidence!

Bumper, I lost the envelope with your address, can you email it to me unless you take personal PayPal. I have installed them on 3 SIGs and they worked great. Thanks again.

If you have a feeler gauge, you might see what thickness of of gauge blade will fit under the decocker lever. If you do this, with left grip removed, slide the blade in from the front. The thickest blade that will fit easily is the number I need. I can see about making you a thinner replacement or I can provide you with a UHMW spacer. No cost to you of course.

Bumper,

I sent you an e-mail on Nov. 23 re four shims and haven't heard anything from you (I'm in Massachusetts). Shall we assume at this date my e-mail was lost and start over? I see you've more recently included a PayPal link in post 1. I'll use that but don't want to be double ordering if the Nov 23 request is still in the works. Please advise. Thanks!

Editor (and all),

I check my email twice daily, so when you order, please expect a response same day or by the following morning anyway. Shipping is also same or next day latest.

I apologize, I can't find a record of your email anywhere, checked my spam folder too.

Please get back to me either with the PayPal link or email in my profile, I'll get your P-Shims in the mail ASAP. Also note new pricing on multiple orders in first post of thread.

thanks and sorry for whatever caused the mixup,

Stay safe and walk tall, my friends.

There's been a flurry of orders, but I'm sure I'm all caught up. If you've sent payment via PayPal or sent me a private email, you should have already received acknowledgement of your order.

If you post here that you've placed an order, and your email in not in your profile, that's okay but please confirm I have responded to your order privately (and if I have not, let me know). Your forum name may not give me a way to correlate your post here to your actual order. I hope that makes sense.
