    Now that is nice. You really should consider locking that thing up in my vault for safe keeping. :)

    Not to be a killjoy, but why the "navy" rather than the regular version?

    Might be the fact that he's Navy... just a guess. ;)

    Plus, the silver (stainless, I know) anchor on the slide just adds coolness factor. :)

    Go Navy..

    ...

    Far less of them around than any other great, standard, P226 9mm's..

    And a Navy version certainly carries more resale value over, say, a Blackwater P226 9mm.. in our current, politically-correct, world.. :what:

    Congrats, great gun there.. :)

    Ps.. FTR, all Sig 9mm's are great guns.. and enjoy the ~ New Year ~ with it.

    Thanks fellas. I am sure I will enjoy this one, as I do my other Sigs. This one is going to the range this weekend....

    Nice piece. I like the anchor insignia. And, it sounds cool...."My Navy SIG"

    That was a nice present to yourself. You may have to get yourself a thank you gift in return. ;)

    The Navy used to have phosphated internals. However I do believe they are not doing that with them anymore.

    Yes, I heard the same thing, luckily I have one of the good ones, this one has the phosphated internals, not the blued.

    Ok this is hillarious. I just read and responded to your Glock post and finished my last post with SIGs are better anyway, apparently either you or I are psychic. :D

    Love the Navy, love the P226, Love SIGs. WIN WIN WIN :D

    226 in General

    Being as the Sig 226 is high on my list of first 9mm's to buy due to their reputation AND a poular Navy Seal video game I play (The H&K .45 is tied for first w/ Sig).

    What I was wondering is besides the really cool Anchor on the slide, what is the difference between Navy 226 and any other 226?

    Thanks for the insight,
    RFB

    226 is looking to be my next handgun purchase. I've always wanted one, but the price has scared me away. Now that I own a few firearms that are much more expensive, I'm finally going to end up getting one.



    Does this Navy Seals game happen to be SOCOM?

    I believe the only difference is the Anchor, its ONLY available in 9mm, and some of the Navy models had phosphate coated internals, the standard 226 I believe did not.
