    So I ordered a few things from Midway last week. I finally got around to installing them on my gorgeous P6.

    Hogue rubber grips (wanted Pachmayr but they were sold out):

    I initially had large issues with removing the factory front sight. So I put 2 drops of Kroil Penetrating Oil on them and let them sit for 48 hours. A brass drift punch and a small brass hammer was all it took. A few light taps and it melted right out. New one went in with no issues:)

    Now i just need a spare magazine and a "short trigger" and I'll be set. The only bad thing is that the Hogue grips add a significant extra girth to the grip, so it kinda ruins the purpose of having a single stack magazine:-x

    mine came from centerfire last friday, i got the cheap one, not as nice finish as yours. Ill post pics if anyone wants.

    myk9 do you have a link to the short trigger, and the pachymar grips. I thought they stoped makeing them and you can only get the pachymar on ebay for like 65 bucks :shock: If they are indeed available or on back order ill order them bad boys up.

    I haven't found the short trigger online for less than $50. Topgunsupply.com is the only place I've seen them for the 225. If anyone find them at another place, I'd love to hear from you.

    As you can see from my pics, the grips are just the slip on kind. I don't think you'll be able to find ones custom fit for the 225.

    I actually got the cheaper grade P6 as well. I guess I just lucked out because this thing is like 97%. Glad I saved the $30 bucks since that's about what the accessories and a box of ammo cost me:D

    darn you meant the pachy universal grip, you had my hopes up there was custom grips available for a decent price.

    Damn Brasky thanks! I placed my Midway order last week and I couldn't find it online. I searched for "sig short trigger" and only ones for the 226/229 etc would show up, but not the P225.

    Guess I'll have to place an order for more goodies, need .357 Mag ammo for my newest revolver purchase (first revolver for me)...damn shipping charges again:rolleyes:

    How do you guys like shooting the P6?

    Nice..isn't it?

    Who knew a single stack 9mm would bring such joy...right?

    brickboy do you know if i can use 10 rd mags in the p6?

    ProMag Magazine Sig Sauer P225 9mm Luger 10-Round Steel Blue

    MidwayUSA - ProMag Magazine Sig Sauer P225 9mm Luger 10-Round Steel Blue

    i heard i probably dont want pro mag, and that mecmar or sig original are the prefered mags, is there any way to
    10 round capcity with out using pro mags?



    I knew it would bring joy, single stack isnt the greatest as my double stack .45 xd compact is just a teeny tiny
    bit larger, but it shoots nice. I can shoot it as nice as my cousin and my moms $800 sig p239's. :mrgreen:

    I don't know about that. I have only used 8rd SIG factory mags in my Swiss beauty. Yeah, they're sort of procey but SIG mags are worth it.

    With SIGs, I have always found the factory mags to be best. I tried a Pro Mag in my P220 but it jammed and would not seat right when all SIG factory mags worked perfectly. Lesson learned.

    Besides...have you shot it yet? They're so accurate...I doubt you will feel undergunned with 8-9 rounds in the P6/P225. I surely do not.

    Looks great. Who ever thought that one of the best buys in handguns would be a Sig?

    No kidding. A new in the box commercial P225 is about 700 bucks plus on Gunbroker last time I checked.

    ...so yeah..the P6s are the steal of the century.
