All Sig P226 Legion SAO (single Action Only) include a reduced and contoured Elite beavertail, which allows for a higher grip, and a reduced profile. This helps reduce the amount of printing.
SIG added a more aggressive front strap checkering and additional checkering under the trigger guard, to enhanced griping. A well thought out X-Five undercut has been applied to the trigger guard, which allows for a higher grip and greater control. Every 226 Legion 9 is equipped with enhanced front cocking serrations, to ease racking the firearm and press checks. It also; comes standard with low profile decoking and slide catch levers to reduce the risk of; snagging on clothing and other items.
As if that wasn’t enough, This SIG P226 Legion SAO in 9mm has a enhanced polished action with the upgraded SIG SRT (Short-Reset Trigger). Last but not least a solid steel guide rod adds weight where it matters most, and extra reliability over plastic guide rods

SIG P226 Background
The P226 has a lot of history behind it. The pistol has endured grueling institutional testing. The famous Ohio State Patrol testing, French combination military and police testing, and Texas State Patrol evaluation have all confirmed the reliability of the SIG P-series pistols.
The modern handguns are even more reliable. There has been no pistol more effective and useful in the war on terror than the SIG P226. Originally intended to offer life-saving accuracy in a rescue situation, the pistol balances accuracy and reliability. When the SIG is purchased, it is purchased on its merits and not on the low bid.
SIG Sauer Legion Series
The Legion series owes much to the demands of serious competitors and military shooters. The pistol that saves lives and makes history could be a little better they said. “Let’s do that,” replied SIG, and the result was the Legion series.
It’s built for those who demand a pistol with better features to enhance rapid handling and accuracy. Reliability — a strong point of the P226 — cannot be compromised. The pistol has had considerable development in the grip frame.
Inside the gun, the trigger mechanism is single-action-only. It’s important to realize that the pistol isn’t a converted first-shot double-action P226. The lockwork is considerably developed, and the trigger of the Legion is a flat-style offering excellent control.
The trigger is tight and crisp with minimal take-up and a rapid reset. The pistol features a solid, rather than hollow, guide rod.
SIG calls the sights X-RAY3 sights. I like the configuration. You need something that is bright and draws your eye to the sights. These sights are well suited to defensive shooting. The night sights are bright enough for real utility in dim light.
A final touch separating the Legion from everything else is the special hard-use Legion Gray finish.
