SIG Sauer P226 Capacity

Shipped with 10 or 15 round magazines, the SIG P226 also accepts 9mm magazines from aftermarket manufacturers with 18, 20, and even 32 round capacities

SIG Sauer P226 Ergonomics

The SIG Sauer P226 is a full-size pistol with a considerably wide grip.  Its slide serrations assist the user in manually cycling the action with sweaty hands.  Its double-action trigger is somewhat heavy but is very smooth, and its single-action trigger pull has a decent amount of take-up with a smooth break.

SIG Sauer P226 Fit & Finish

The SIG Sauer P226 has an anodized alloy frame and a Nitron coated stainless steel slide and are both incredibly resistant to rust and wear.  The only oversight in the design is possibly the placement of the slide release, as it sits close to the user’s thumb and is easy to engage unintentionally.
Fit and Finish

SIG Sauer P226 Concealability

The SIG Sauer P226 measures 7.6 inches long and 5.5 inches tall, and with a width of 1.5 inches, this gun would be difficult to properly conceal without the use of heavy or flowing clothing.  The sharper geometry of the gun’s hammer and grip tang could cause clothing to catch on the draw.  This gun is more appropriately carried in an open-carry setup.
