      The P226 you have is very nearly a copy of the Blackwater "Tactical" P226R. They had a normal Blackwater model which had some nice black-wood grips etc. The Blackwater Tactical model was basically the absolute max-loaded P226R model.

      It had all of the features of the various models: The SRT, The Elite, and the other comp model...all crammed into one gun.

      When I got my BWT model it was about $950 but came with 5x 20-Rnd magazines.





      It was a great gun, but honestly it was just way too big to be of real use. The P226 in general is a pretty decent sized handgun, the extended grips etc made it even more-so. I only regret selling it because of the Blackwater grips and logos etc. It would have become a serious collectible item at some point.

      Yeah, the thing is absolutely huge and not entirely practical in non-post-apocalyptic world. It was very much an impulse buy, but so far I'm happy with it. I made it a point to beat the hell out of it during its first outing and the gun itself performed wonderfully. Except...

      ...In the transition from Blackwater to Tac Ops, Sig went with a different magazine manufacturer (cheaper). Yours appeared to have been made by Mec Gar, the 4 that came with mine were the new sh!tty ones (the chance of the slide locking back after the last round was about 50/50). I rectified the problem by buying Mec Gar's and have not encountered any issue since.

      Yeah, I was a little saddened to hear they went cheapo on the magazines. Lots of guys complaining about it. I actually had a couple of issues with my MecGars, but I attributed it to being brand new. I only put about 400 rounds or more through it before I sold it. If I needed a good duty weapon, I'd gladly run a Sig226R without complaints.

      I wasn't a big fan of the DA/SA though and won't go back to it unless really forced. The P226R though is so f-ing sweet shooting. Much like a full size 1911, the size/weight and crisp SA action make it obnoxiously easy to shoot, accurately and quickly.

      I can really see the draw of the new E2 model P229Rs (I'd like the smaller size). I know Sig has some serious quality control issues lately, but the 226 and it's line are great handguns.

      Some of the Sig models are silly - but this is kind of cool? A tactical FDE handgun with stippled...wood grips!?



      EDIT: Micarta (G10) grips...hmmm...seems pretty cool.

      He did great work! How much did all that set you back if you don't mind me asking?

      Also, the revolver looks like it was coated, as opposed to blued - yes? Maybe it's my sh_t monitor, but it just looks like it's cerakoted or something. Looks nice though.

      Just picked up my first gun. It's a Mossberg 500 field/security combo 12-gauge. It comes with two barrels (18.5" and 28" ported), three chokes, and a pistol grip. Here are the three configurations:

      1971 Full metal, including trigger guard Rem 870 cut back to 12". Has the Hogue 12 LOP stock and fore grip, and I added a little neon green sight. I can hold my own skeet shooting against standard length shotguns, I would say out to 50 yards.

      like the SBS too.

      I've been busy as hell moving my business. will be working on my NFA trust soon to start shortening some barrels and acquiring some suppressors.

      (unless some one more well versed in the NFA processes can tell me that putting the items on my S-corp is better then doing a trust, because I'm kinda torn between the two)

      I went with a trust in my family name. I know there are tons of threads online that say there could be problems or you need a lawyer to write it up, but its really easy. I had my local Class III dealer actually set me up. Cost $0. Every item ive purchased has been smooth with zero issues. I even forgot a form once and had to re-submit all my paper work and it still only took a total of 2 1/2 months to get approved for that "toy" from the initial mail out date of mistake paper work to approval.

      Well I added a new weapon to the family over the weekend. Say hello to a FEG SA-2000m AK variant, more commonly known as the AMD-65! The finish leaves a bit to be desired but I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Maybe one day I'll send it in for KG Gun Kote or something similar. I apologize up front for the mediocre cell phone pics and I hope to add some action shots tomorrow.





      To sum it up... small, medium and large!

      Just bought the kids a Nerf gun that cost more than that. Yours probably has a tiny tiny bit more kick than theirs though.
