My West German 220 SAO CARRY trigger bar spring needs to be replaced.

Can I use a DA/SA trigger bar spring? due to the SAO springs are non existent.I see the trigger bar end of the DA/SA spring is different.

Also will LEGION small parts fit the 226 SAO and 220 SAO.
Not that I can find those either. Thank you.

Why does the spring need to be replaced?

If you cannot find a spring that’s specifically intended for the single action only, I would just try what you can find and see if it works. I can’t imagine that it would hurt anything if it doesn’t. (I am not familiar with SAO models; can you post photos of the current spring and how it fits the frame and trigger bar?)

I am curious, though, about a West German SAO Carry. I was under the impression that those models were introduced long after there were no East/West Germanies.

I have a 220BR345-BSS-SAO born 12APR2008 frame made in West Germany with a SS Slide.

Do any SIG frames just say Made In Germany?
The SAO trigger bar has a cut out for the thumb release the safety stops the trigger bar moving.

I will get photos and then try to get them attached.

The trigger bar spring end has been bent and will not attach to the trigger bar comes out when the trigger is pulled.

I thought about bending it back in shape.

Interesting, but yes, many frames say Made in Germany.

I have been satisfied with the many orders I have made with Midwest Gun Works and would have no hesitation in just ordering on line.

As mentioned in your other post on TB springs, the two current springs differ by the shape of the end that engages the notch on the trigger bar. The SAO version is v shaped whereas the DA/SA is u shaped. I’ve read that the u shaped was introduced to provide clearance with the SRT safety lever for DA/SA models. The SAO Legion has a unique SRT safety lever that doesn’t have the same shape and thus doesn’t conflict with the TB spring.

I suspect that your SAO doesn’t have the SRT parts anyway.

I too have good success with MGW.
