SIG Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Awesome, how's it holding up? Because I really want to buy a SIG and I'm not sure I have enough patience to wait for the G&G and ICS version.

 

I also bought a TM 552 about a year ago and it is holding up beatifully. However, you still might have to wait unless it is a 552 you wanted because TM no longer makes the 550's & 551's, and that is what ICS & G&G are making. I'm in the market for a 550 myself, so if there were TM's available at retailers I would have already submitted the order, but they've been off the market so long that I'm debating whether it's better to get the JG since I'm getting one to use, not for looks. (And I'm not up to lugging a full-metal beast all over the field.)

 

And while it's nothing special I figured I should try to keep in line with the thread's purpose:

It's holding up perfectly like any other TM. The only part that really sees a lot of wear is the flash hider, which looks cool and is easy to paint over. I opened up the sig right after I took that picture and all of the gears look brand new.

 

EDIT: Here is a picture I just took of the gears! This must have been 15k rounds or so by now.

I want to be able to show up to an event, with batteries in both, and choose between the 552 & 550 based on the type of mission. That's why I want those two together, I'd be using the same mags, optics, etc, just choosing the gun style based on gameplay option. Short version: I wanna be the Pokeman trainer of Sig's. :D

 

Edit: Wait, do you mean buying a 2nd TM 552 and performing said surgery? I may consider that if it comes down to it, but I intend to avoid it if I can. (The reason I bought a TM is so I'd never have to open it up. I intend to keep it bone stock until...well I'm old enough that I may never have to. ;) )

Finally got my camera and battery in the same place so I was able to take a few shots of the P226 that I recently built out of my parts bin (thanks to WhiteDingo and hkssr20det for a few missing bits). It's a simple gun but I like how it looks (SIGs are a tactical gun in my eyes). Unfortunately this is going up for sale because I already have an upgraded SIG.

Here's a group shot with my other faithful SIG (it was my first TM GBB and my first upgrade project. I feel bad that it has got so run down.)

Hi guys, can any one tell me if Pro-Win metal slide and frames are any good for tm p226's? Im looking to get one for mine but want to make sure that its not going to take hours to get it to fit together and cycle properly as if it is i may as well just go for a cheaper option. Thanks in advance :D

 

Here is my current p226,

All these 226's wish I never sold mine. I ran mine on green gas on 100 degrees plus days and the plastic slide never showed any signs of cracking. A very well built pistol.

To the guys/gals with magpul, which type do you use? 5.56 works fine or is it really for 7.62?

 

Also, are there any online shops who still store the cheekpieces?

 

Thanks.
