Sig P226 vs P226 Combat Login/Join

I've recently come to realize how much I don't care for the reach on my Sig P226 after trying several of a friend's P226's. He has a mix of them with varying stock grips from Hogue to old German stock checkered grips and finally the last one I tried was a P226 Combat and the reach on the trigger was instantly a fit for me. We even switched grips to try and I think at first I thought the Combat grips on my old 226 made a change I don't think it did. So, what is making that difference with the Combat on trigger reach? I'd love to get my 226 to feel like that just don't know where to start on modifying. He agrees my 226 reach is long, longer than any of his various 226's. Thanks for any insight on how I might go about remedying this.

Did one have a short reach trigger installed?

Added: A quick look shows most “Combat” models to have the short reach trigger. If your P226 has the standard trigger, that would make a difference in how your finger contacts it.

The Combat, as it comes from factory, has the short reach trigger.

Many people report liking the feel of P226 and P229 pistols equipped with the short reach trigger because it’s not necessary to extend one’s finger out to an unusual degree to position the pad on the trigger face in a natural way. That’s especially true of shooters with smaller hands. The problem that some shooters can have, though, is that the SRT requires curling the trigger finger back farther toward the rear of the gun before letoff and discharge. Because the end of the trigger stroke is the most critical for controlling the gun, that can be a disadvantage with longer fingers.

Welcome to Sig Forum! I told you this was the place to be!!

The 226 tampasnook tried and liked is actually a TACOPS. It does have the SRT. Not sure if that’s the same as a “short reach” trigger or not.

Hey man yup you nailed it this is great thanks! Yea the TACOPS was perfection as soon as I picked it up and addressed the trigger. Thanks again for the fit session on that pile of Sigs what a collection....took me from the luke warm feeling I've had on that DA first pull to probably being 1st in line.

No, but that’s a common point of confusion because the names are similar and the abbreviations (“SRT”) are the same.

See below for the difference between the short reach trigger and the what used to be the standard. The “short” trigger is thinner from front to back. (Short on left, old standard on right.)



What is usually meant by SRT in guns like the Tactical Operations is short reset trigger. As the name indicates, that mechanism reduces the distance the trigger must move forward to reset for the next shot. It actually has nothing to do with the trigger part itself, and doesn’t change how the gun feels in the hand when engaging the trigger for a shot.

Another option to be aware of, Grayguns "intermediate" trigger. https://grayguns.com/product/p...ntermediate-trigger/

It is shorter than stock, but larger than the thin short reach versions. It is perfect IMHO and is also more rounded and has either over travel or both pre and over travel adjustment options. They have a "flat" version as well...I haven't tried a flat trigger yet.

This is the trigger that 1st came with the Legion series.

The SRT is great as well, I wouldn't have a Sig P series without it. The difference it made in my old P6 was astounding!

My first 226 came with the E2? wrap around grips.... then I ordered a MK-25 and it came with factory grips and I instantly hated them.... finally got a pair of the Houge G10? grips and they are almost as good and thin as the wrap arounds... I have semi-small hands... and really don't like those thick grips....
