    Having previously only owned Glocks and a 1911, I bought my first Sig, a new 226R in .40 S&W two months ago. After firing my friend's 226R and printing my best group ever, I had to have one. This was despite the fact that I swore I'd never buy another non-.45. But this was the first .40 that I really liked and didn't feel snappy. About a month later I found out through this forum that there were still some NIB 226ST's, so I had Mike @ Able order me a 226ST in .40 S&W from the factory.

    I love these 226's, the recoil of the .40 feels like a 9mm in other guns. They are very accurate too, at an outdoor range I hit a metal pig silhouette 8 out of 10 times at 35 yards with the 226R! The only issue I had was that it seems to shoot high, I would have to aim right below the pig's feet. But it was very consistent as long as I was. I have the correct sites 8/6, so I'm not sure what the issue is. I will have to take the 226ST out to that range and see if it also shoots high.

    Here are some pictures, including a target with today's best grouping.


    I am definitely more accurate with my Sigs than my Glocks or even my 1911. I am now on the lookout for a 220ST or 220R with external extractor. Sigs are addicting!
