SIG Sauer P226 Pistol is a ultimate fighting handgun in the minds of many people ever since it was introduced more than quarter-century ago, service-type pistol made by SIG Sauer. It is chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .22 Long Rifle. It is essentially the same basic design of the SIG P220, but developed to use higher capacity, staggered-column magazines in place of the single-column magazines of the P220. The SIG Sauer P226 Pistol itself has spawned further sub-variants; the P228 and P229 are both compact versions of the staggered-column P226 design. The SIG Sauer P226 Pistol and its variants are in service with numerous law enforcement and military organizations worldwide. Much of the gun’s mystique comes from its service with the elite US Navy SEALs.

The SIG Sauer P226 Pistol is basically similar to the SIG-Sauer P220 pistol, except for the slightly different shape and double-stack magazines of greater capacity. It is available in a number of versions, with standard aluminium or stainless steel frames, with or without a Picatinny rail. Triggers are either a typical SIG-Sauer double action arrangement with a frame-mounted decocker and an automated firing pin block, or a double-action-only setup without decocker. 9mm and .40/.357 versions of this pistol also may differ in the design of the slide – while 9mm pistols may have a stamped steel slide, larger caliber pistols have heavier slides, machined from a solid bar of steel. While the pistol design has remained largely unchanged since the early days, there are some recent changes that might spark the interest of SIG enthusiasts.

There are additional variants to the P226 line of pistols.  They can be had in various colors and finishes.  Sights can be standard or with tritium inserts.  Threaded barrels are also standard on some models, which allows for the easy addition of a sound suppressor.  All in all, there are dozens of possible option and model combinations.
