Hi guys Wanted to show this piece of history. It has served in LE and as you can see it has been to hell and back. Has served me well, painted the worst part when it retired and now I'm looking forward to get it cerakoted.
The P226 was my first handgun and I've owned several over the years, in all their various flavors.
What I find interesting about yours is that it appears to have the older (earlier) Trijicon sights, but installed on a later model gun with a stainless steel slide. Unless I'm mistaken, those sights were discontinued for the Meprolights, by the time the stainless steel slides came along. But, being a former LE gun, the explanation could be as simple as an armorer's parts box.
Whatever the explanation, you can't go wrong with a P226.
