Another slice of SIG perfection! As long as you have a relatively modern 226 the conversion fits like a glove, no mismatched lines or funky feel, perfect!
I was a bit hesitant because all these kits say "from .22lr to .357,.40 etc" and I was converting from 9mm but, logic says that if my .22 conversion works, so would the .357. SIGS genius in the 226 means that now I have one frame (one trigger pull) and FOUR different calibers to choose from.
If I were one of those folks that was worried about the end of the world, I think this is the one handgun I would keep in my bugout bag.
No need to carry 4 complete guns but you have 4 calibers available to you should you ever find yourself scrounging for ammo. Brilliant right?

The Sig .357 Upgrade Kit delivers a new slide, .357 sig barrel and recoil spring/guide... along with a .357 Sig magazine to convert the P-226 .22 LR Classic into a more potent weapon system using the more powerful .357 Sig Cartridge.
It all comes packaged in a high quality, thermoplastic case.
Taking the .22 Top end off the pistol was snap. Fitting the new slide on was a challenge at first. There was a small spring/lever near the hammer that obstructed the slide from fitting properly until I figured it out and slipped it down so the slide could pass over it.
On my specific P-226, the take down lever sometimes needs a little extra effort to get it to rotate back into a locked position. I chalk it up to a tight tolerances and a brand new pistol needing more break-in time.
The new .357 Sig Slide/Barrel Assembly fits perfectly, though the color is a little different from the anodized alloy frame. In most lighting, it looks close enough to not generate another look.
Shooting the P-226 in .357 Sig adds a little more "punch" to the shooting experience. But it also makes the P-226 a more versatile platform.
The .357 Sig Magazine is tough to load and I have yet to be able to load it to it's full capacity. I hope after a few more trips to the range, the spring may weaken some and the stubby bullets may be a little easier to load.
Overall, it's well worth the money, is obviously made to Sig's High Standards and will leave you with the dilema of shooting the P-226 as a .22 or a .357 Sig come range time.
And then there's how to leave it configured at home if you want to rely on it for personal defense.
