    Thread: let's see your Sig Sauer P6 pistol!

    1. 09-23-2008 02:32 AM #76
      How does the gun shoot? I have been reading nothing but good reviews, with a few about the stamped slide and trigger spring. Also, how is the aluminum lower? No QC issues?

      Mine? It's been flawless so far except for one failure to feed when I didn't put the top round in the magazine in all the way. No issues feeding hollowpoints but that seemed to be a problem mostly related to the older vintage P6s. No problems with the trigger or springs though some have recommended getting the refresh kit from Sig. You should be really happy with your purchase, $400 for a great quality Sig can't be beat. I love the way this pistol is designed and the how natural it feels in my hand, the controls are the most intuitive and well placed controls I've ever experienced. No issues with the aluminum lower, seems like a really solid piece.

      Got my P6 yesterday and took it to the range. Either I'm disappointed in my shooting ability (which is most likely the case) or the gun is shooting low/left @ 15 yards. These sights are non adjustable right? Can I switch out the front sight easily?

      Take it with a grain of salt, don't know how accurate this thing is:

      it's probably you. the only reason i say this is because with my P6 a buddy of mine and myself were able to keep all 8 rounds in an 8x10" target at 15 yards. even at 10 yards my wife is dead on in the X-ring. we've run about 2,000 rounds through my P6 so chances are all you need is some more trigger time. hey... that's just a good excuse to go to the range more often!

      for the replies. I'm going back out tonight to see if i shoot any better. Also, the CCI 115gr target seemed to not cycle the slide on the last round in one of the mags...Remington and Winchester fed fine. Could this be because of the aluminum casings on the CCI? Also, since the mfg. date was '82 i assume I have a 42* feed ramp instead of the 45* needed to reliably cycle wider rounds, and hollow points

      just wondering offhand: how thoroughly did you clean your pistol before you shot it? mine is/was in great shape but it was clogged full of lint. whoever the european cop(s) were that had my pistol it's clear that they spent a whole lot of time in their holsters and not much time shooting bad guys. a thorough hosing down and some TLC and i could feel how much better the pistol cycled rounds.

      I broke it down and went over it with a q-tip before the range last night. I was also just rusty from months of non-shooting. My other fingers were squeezing the gun lower when I pulled the trigger, so I fixed it with a tighter grip. It was waaaay over oiled, but no gunk inside, no wear on the internals/marring of the slide surfaces. Overall, i'd say it's in 98% condition mechanically and aesthetically. I'm very happy with the purchase. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      did you notice your accuracy go up after you cleaned it and adjusted your grip?

      Yes. My grip and cleaning the gun improved my accuracy. I am now back to being able to draw quickly and put two rounds within in a 5" circle.

      Got my P6 today. Didn't come with a case, but came with a nearly brand new looking shoulder holster. Gun looks good, barely has any wear marks on it, and the feed ramps look like its never seen a casing. Came with two mags, one is obviously brand new. No sight marks, only posts? The only rough part is the grips, which is obviously easy to change. Picture later!

      nothing much to add about my P6 except that we've put over 2,000 rounds through it and it hasn't malfunctioned a single time. not even once!
      my wife and i went to the range today and she managed to put all 8 rounds within the 10-ring at 8 yards. 3 were squarely in the X-ring. this pistol is VERY accurate and VERY easy to shoot. i almost feel like buying another one just for the heck of it.

      Pictures!
      Handle looks a little rough, some sort of white residue that I can't seem to remove.

      wash the grips with dish soap and water in your kitchen sink. that should work well.

      Bah! Didn't work. But marschalgrips.com has a lot of NICE options for only $70. I think I will have to pick a set up!

      that's a nice looking gun! offhand when/if you get new grips i'll happily take the old ones off of your hands. i am thinking of trying this soldering gun trick i learned about while at Blackwater but i don't want to mess up my original grips.

      wow that was fast! i still recommend cleaning it out thoroughly, oiling up the rails lightly, and going out and throwing some lead through it.
