Well maybe if SIGARMS fell prey to the American obsession that alloy frames are weak and so made it out of stainless steel too...Or maybe a nice depleted uranium frame!

Hmm sure - does it come with lead gloves?

 

But I'm wondering how that kit can be so heavy - it's aluminium, right? How can a full alu kit be so much heavier than the RS gun which has alu frame, stainless steel slide and barrel, and steel internals?

 

Prime mixes some heavy metal in their alu? Is that even possible?

Dunno actually! :huh:

Maybe its a typo...Once saw a pistol on WGC that weighed like 36544228kg hahaha!

Aluminium is easier to machine than steel but not as strong as we all know...

Maybe they needed to beef up the frame thickness to retain overall strength. It still seems very strange though!

Perhaps the slide is MUCH thicker too....Lets email them and ask!

 

Oh and Utty the depleted uranium frame comes with a pair of fashionable lead gloves AND a lead cup for your errr... fiddly bits :D

Neither seems very likely. It's got to retain the same inner and outer dimensions to look like a P226 whilst fitting the internal parts. That doesn't leave much leeway for dramatically adjusting dimensions.

 

I bet it's a simple error.

 

Cheers.

Maybe he means recoil springs i.e. 120%/150% ?

 

Slightly changing the subject, anyone seen any other accesories for the 226 yet. So far i make it the Sheriff and Zeke slides, X fire inner barrel and X fire inner barrel and silencer adapter.

 

Anyone seen any others? Links would be good too :)

 

Any links to the Sheriff slide, please?
