What scope mount would I use to mount a scope on this .40 P226?

What accuracy can be achieved at 100 Yards?

This was my first try with the iron sights at 50 yards?

I have NO idea about a scope mount - never done that on a pistol of mine. I use rifles at longer ranges.

Just about all accounts of stainless frame SIG P226s that I have read is that they are extremely accurate. A SIG X-Five P226 is supposed to shoot two inches or less at 50 yards but I don't believe a regular stainless P226 would be quite that accurate. Maybe around 3 inch groups at 50 yard with the right ammo. Looks like you are doing great with your at 50 yards so far!!

Good luck!

You (or more likely a competent gunsmith) can drill and tap the frame and them mount one of the many sight mounts available for the M1911. The two pistols are similar enough.

I don't get it.
You want to scope your pistol to check it's accuracy at 100 yards and then remove it?
With a frame rail mounted scope it's possible that it will be less accurate than it is with open sights because of the slop between the frame and slide.

You could mount a reflex site leupold or burris and be able to shoot as accuratly as practical. I use a red dots on my hunting revolvers and from a bench can shoot 3" 100 yards groups. Use a 3 or 4" dot on a 6 to 8" black circle target and that does make it easier to bracket on the target. Just not very practical.

OR this if you have a scope- http://www.themakogroup.com/product_p/usm.htm

Bobby Carver might be able to whip something up for you. I wouldn't worry about the "slop" between the frame and the slide! :eek: Somebody probably makes a mount like this for a real 226:

I'm not sure,but wouldn't a red dot cover a rather large area at 100 yards? Red dots are close range "quick sights" never meant for 100 yard accuracy testing. Use a propr scope if you feel a need for long range target shooting with your SIG, or better yet a scoped revolver.....

My aforementioned Bushnell red dots have a 3 m.o.a. dot. It covers, of course, about three inches @ 100 yds. There are also smaller dots available, but I'd opine that the 3 m.o.a. dot is fine for 100 yds. We're not talking about benchrest competition, are we? :eek:

Buy a revolver and scope the revolver.

I'm almost tempted to get that optics mount from the Makogroup for my P226. Like PO2Hammer mentioned , the slide to frame "slop" can cause some inconsistency in the aiming point. Still it would be interesting to see how close the scoped P226 compares to one of my scoped revolvers.

Yup, people underestimate that frame to slide slop. The Frame mounted scopes/dots are generally for the speed competitions where 100 yard accuracy isn't a consideration. On some hand fitted guns like 1911's where the frame to slide fit is as tight as the barrel to slide fit, a frame mounted scope will be accurate, but not on a production Sig.

A slide mounted MRD would be a much better choice all around.
