Are there any written instructions with pictures in here, or perhaps a video. I've seen a video from Calguns.net but not very clear of the actual process but rather pointing out the 1/16 pin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be picking up my P226 Scorpion in 9 days! So excited.

Lastly, is this model discontinued? I don't see it on Sig's website.

If your talking about removing the magazine release button, on the bottom of button there is a small plunger called the catch stop. Push upwards to release the catch, and the mag release will spring out. But be careful the catch stop is under spring pressure and only goes in one way and it and the spring are very very small. I use a child's plastic paint brush handle thats been sharpened to push the catch stop so no scratches. For a picture look at the schematics at Brownells and Sig Sauer used to have manual for download and part schematics.

He's talking the silly mag disconnect not the mag release.

You’ll need to remove the locking insert from the pistol, once that’s out, it’s pretty straight forward. If you have any questions email me, I’ve taken a few out in the past.

I feel blessed that my CA-legal P226 X5 Competition has neither a mag disconnect nor an LCI.




Note to self: Don’t clutter threads with gratuitous posts.

There have been two versions of the magazine Safety. The current version is a locking block swap. The older version actually involved matching the frame and adding parts.

I've heard it's to address the accidental discharges when people remove the mag then start cleaning or handling their pistol w/o clearing the chamber.


No car is as much fun to drive, as any motorcycle is to ride.

They were designed for LE. It gives the option to drop the mag and disable the weapon during a struggle. I used to remove my magazine before going hands on with a mental patient for example. In such circumstances I would rely on a cover officer for deadly force should it be required. I know one officer who is positively alive today because of the feature.

For a private citizen CCW I can take them or leave them. Only one of my current pistols has a disconnect.
