Part 5 of 5 of Nutnfancy's Tabletop Review and Philosophy of Use with the Sig P226 pistol: An outstanding pistol design, the Sig P226 is truly an amazing and well-proven gun. It stacks up quite well against Nutnfancy's standard of 9mm pistol measure, the also-excellent Glock 17. Though accepted reluctantly by the American civilian shooter it became an embraced and beloved handgun as it was proven in the hands of the Navy SEALs and with hundreds of law enforcement agencies. That is because, indeed, it is a world class design offering complete reliability, amazing accuracy, toughness, excellent firepower, outstanding ergonomics, and a superb trigger. Many liken the Sig P226 to a Swiss Watch and thats a fair comparison; it is a mechanically efficient and beautiful design. But how does it stack against the Glock 17? Truth be told (and it is here), the Glock holds edges in absolute durability, weight (big advantage at 8 oz), simplicity of operation and parts, firepower, and price but in some cases the advantage is slight. However Nutnfancy maintains both are near equals in terms of reliability, accuracy, ergonomics (very subjective for everyone), and track record. But the Sig for many holds an endearing attraction that is hard to define and quantify. You have to shoot and hold one to understand it. It inspires confidencethat most critical attribute needed for effective combat handgunnery. And for many, that confidence is the tie breaker that makes the Sig their preferred choice in defensive/offensive handguns. It is often called the worlds best pistol.
