As you can see, i really greased it up with TW25B.

Came with 3 Mec-Gar magazines, 15 rounders pinned to 10 ala fun police rules.

Nice! looking for one myself.

Very wise to grease it up. Make sure you check the slide grooves for burrs.

Very nice, I love the P226. As far as the grease goes you really cant have too much, especially when shooting a new Sig for the first time.

She's purty. I can't keep my hands off my new P229. I think the next one will be a P238 then a M11-A1. They are a natural fit for my hands. Might as well get a P220 SAS and the rest of the family while I am at it. Wait, was I thinking in lottery terms again? Pricey but worth every penny.

Sweet gun! I have one too and love it. The anchor on the side is appropriate for a gun that size and weight with only 11 rounds in it. Those things are huge. They shoot great though.

Grease protects the frame rails from wearing through the anodized finish on the rails. A lot of people do not adequately lube the slide and frame and damage the frame rails prematurely.

I keep a light coat of grease on the rails when I carry the gun, but prior to going to the range I slather on a heavy coat just to be safe.

Got you, never did more than factory spec oiling but never had issues either but understood.

I work for an agency that issues ~120 Sig P226/P229's in .40

Its really easy during inspection to tell the ones that have been properly lubricated vs the ones that haven't.

Properly lubricated the frame rails stay black as the day they were new, the others have wear down to the white bare aluminum and will have significantly shorter life.

http://grayguns.com/guide-to-sig-sauer-pistol-inspection/

Plain oil provides adequate lubrication assuming it stays in place during extended firing. Grease just seems to stay in place better and not sling out or "cook off" as the gun heats up during extended firing sessions. Check the above link out and always closely inspect the frame rails before purchasing a used Sig.

Grease also does not run out towards the muzzle while the gun iss carried for extended periods.

I am by no means a Sig expert, but have been carrying one on duty for many years, and had the opportunity to inspect alot of the issued guns over the years. Grease is the way to go IMO. I use Hoppes gun grease or automotive white lithium. Both appear to work equally well. A good layer of grease seems to last longer only requiring re-lubrication every couple of months as the grease takes alot longer to dry out vs gun oil.

Yeah.....on Sigs it's REAL important to get the rails fully greased. I use grease because it stays put. If you'd like to see a good string of messages about lubing Sigs, go over to the Sig Forum and look at their stickys. If you put on too much grease, it balls up on the back of the slide when cycled.......then you just clean it off.

Got ya, made me check the sigs I ahve and have carried on duty but mine appear to be fine. I will check into product listed above to try it out. Thanks for the info.

Nice MK25.

You'll enjoy it. I picked one up last year and have a little over 2K through it with no issues what so ever.

+1 on the grease. I use Lubriplate #105 engine assembly lube.

Here's a pic of mine to spruce up page two a little...

Beautiful!
I ordered some Brian Enos slide glide cause i heard it helps almost eliminate wear and stays put great.
What other areas besides the frame rails did you lubricate?

This thing is noticeably heavier than my Glock 17 but not as much as the other p226.

Mil-Comm TW25B is what the factory uses, and I respect that. Cabela's sells it in the NRA Gun Care kit.

Congrats! You can never have too many Sigs. With all that grease, you gonna look like a glazed doughnut, when you fire that thang...

I'm going to leave the tw25b on for the first range trip then switch it up to Slide Glide lite.
