I figured it was time to get my "dream gun". A SIG p226 MK25, just like the navy seals right!? I think it is a super solid gun, great finish, smooth running, but I had several problems with it.
First, the location of the slide release. I run a high, thumbs forward grip. Whenever I do this I inadvertently press the slide release down, so whenever the mag is empty the slide doesn't lock to the rear. It took me countless hundreds of rounds to figure out that this was going on.
Second, I don't like the 6 o'clock hold the sights are set to. It was really distracting to aim just BELOW the target, and I feel like at distance I had to compensate just how far below the target I put it. I much prefer my cheap Taurus 1911 to the SIG. Anyone have any similar experiences? Am I completely off base?
