Acquired a new Sig 227 yesterday and did a range session with it and my 226. The 226 has about 1200 rounds down it and it is just now really tweaking it. The 226 is an absolute dream. It is a MK25 frame with legacy slide, E2 grip and night sights. Has the short reset trigger. I also own CZ 75B and G17 in 9MM. Its no contest and I love the CZ. Glock not in same category. The accuracy is off the chart and the recoil is nil. The SRT trigger is the best Ive used outside a finely tuned 1911 trigger.
The new 227 I put 150 rounds down yesterday. It is the FDE version with night sights and short reach trigger. Not the short reset. This trigger was better than the CZ and certainly the G17 but not as good as the SRT trigger in the 226. Takes some getting used to. Accuracy of first 25-30 rounds was brutal. Attribute that to brand new gun break in time and me not having used this trigger. I was swapping back and forth between mags with the 226 so this may have affected my trigger pull. After about 100 rounds I started noticing groups starting to tighten up. Still not what I would call good, but better. Recoil is not bad but definate difference from the 226. Obvioulsy its 9MM vs 45acp but I did feel like the recoil was less than the Kimber custom I own in 45.
All in all I was happy but hold further judgement for 500 rounds down the road. The quality of the Sigs in excellent the fit and finish is also excellent. The ease of breaking this down vs the 1911 is not a fair fight. Keeping in mind I do like a good 1911. You can field strip and clean these things in a matter of a couple minutes. I can break both these down and clean em up faster than it takes me to put the 1911 back together
Thats is all for now. Will re-report after 500 rounds down the 227 if anyone is interested.
