p226/225 vs g17/19
whats your take on this?
pic for reference
what is it gonna be used for?
Sig hands down.
I love shooting my Sig, my XD is barely tolerable, and I like my XD a lot more
than shooting my friend's Glocks.
Glock has a greater magazine capacity. Low bore axis has less muzzle flip. Short reset trigger, shoot faster splits. Tons of aftermarket accessories. Current number one best selling handgun popular with law enforcement, government agencies, and competition shooters (me).
The sig on the other hand is the choice of navy seals and thus tactical testicle Internet shooters.
Sig all the way. It's better than the glock hands down and has far less recoil.
just general usage, range, plinking, home defense, etc....not for carry though
I had a 226 for quite a while, it was a well made quality gun that ate everything. I hated it and had to sell it, the trigger reset might as well have been a revolver.
As usual, try 'em both, buy your favorite.
The 226 single action only is not bad. I shot one at trexpo. The sigs are pretty good in their barrel to slide lock up. It's got some decent weight which softens felt recoil but the high bore axis gives it quite a bit of muzzle flip.
For a all metal gun I really like the CZ 75sa and the CZ Sp01.
Sig, they are reliable, metal frame, more ergonomic grip angle
Sig makes a short reset trigger thats 60% shorter then the normal 226s.
At the time they did not. I'd still want to try one and see if its short enough, I've been spoiled by the p99 and s&w 3rd gen autos.
I'd go Glock.
difficult choice. i like both.
Simple, less parts to break, accurate, cheap mags, easy to find mags, reliable.
It all comes down to how the guns fits in your hand, both will get the job done just fine.
Neither are better than the other, both are top notch guns. It depends on what you want.... Try both out and buy the one YOU like. Its amazing how many of these "which is better?" or "which should I buy?" threads are made in WMD....
I voted Sig, but not because I have one. I have shot Glocks and a lot and cannot get to like them.
All tied up at 12

Sig is FTMFW.
Shoot them both....a lot. Then pick the one you like best.
I fingered a 17 today and it was honestly better than the last Glock I shot but for me it needs some grip work be it tape or rubber grips. Sigs have never felt good in my hands.
+1 for p226r
I have both (226&19)
IMO the extra money you're going to spend on the sig isn't worth it. I think new 226's are still in the $800 range while you can get the Glock for almost half of that at $460ish. On top of that the Glock reliability will be better than the Sig.
On the flip side the sig will probably be a little more accurate out of the box but with the money you save you can make the Glock even better if want.
