I just bought a new Sig P226 SA/DA 9mm. I also have Sig P220 SA/DA. Anyway with the P226 I think the trigger bar rubs a little bit on the slide, almost snags it a little towards the end of the trigger pull. I can see a little wear on the top of the trigger bar where the friction would be, and a little on the slide to, i think. My P220 does not have this "snag" in the trigger pull. Like I said, its right at the end of the SA pull. Although I'm sure the P226 will function fine when I shoot it, feeling the snag in the trigger pull is annoying. An $850 gun should not have this problem out of the box. I'm gonna call Sig on Monday and probably send it back. Anyone else have this problem?

I also bought a Hogue grip (#26010) for my P226 (already have one on the P220, fits great!) and besides it being an extremely fat grip, the decocker rubs on the grip when I depress it. I don't like that. That doesn't happen on my P220 and they are they same style grip, not the ones with the finger grooves. I compared the P220 grips to the P226 Hogue grips, and the 220 ones are much thinner. I'm gonna send the grip back to Hogue for another, i think... Anyone else have this problem?
