    Hello, I have a SIG P226 9mm and was wondering if there are any sensible parts I should have as a spare? Im looking to buy this magazine http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tnumber=670683 from midway USA. For screwing around in my open field, not for OCing but 27rd clip just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling plus imagine look of terror on face of anyone breaking in at 3am. I hate to waste shipping charges and know most of their coupons for $ off need you to spend at least $50. Im already at 34$ with extra magazine springs.

    So springs or anything else that current owners would recommend keeping a spare of? To bump me up a bit. If I end up finding a $10 off $50 code. It really only an extra $6 I would be spending.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    For SIGs I only recommend SIG brand mags or Mec-Gar mags. Pretty much everything else doesn't work well. Some new 226 9mms are coming with Check-Mate makes which are proving to work pretty well.

    For spare parts I only recommend is a recoil spring.
    SIG recommends replacing the recoil spring every 5K rounds or when the muzzle end of the spring starts coming apart.

    If replacing at 5K rounds I also recommend replacing the mag springs.
    If you have an older folded metal carbon steel slide I recommend changing the decocker spring and breach block pins at 10K rounds.

    National Magazine is garbage. If you want a higher-cap magazine, get this:

    Mec-Gar is the OEM manufacturer of Sig mags, as well as many other companies. I've never had an issue with a Mec-Gar magazine.

    I, just wondering if that mec-gar will stick out the bottom.

    I'm not expecting much for spending $17 on a national but it looks cool. Might take you up on spending $33 because can't argue with the fact they make the factory ones. Really just want extended mag for fun in the field. due to cheapness of the springs I don't mind having a backup.

    Considering the gun used to be used by law enforcement no idea how many rounds put threw it before I laid hands on it, so it might not hurt to do some replacing.
