Sig 229 complete disasembly

ok, I know what many of you are thinking already..and i understand it will void the warranty and all...

On youtube, there are tons of vids on complete disasembly of a glock...few on the Sig,and only on feild stripping.

I KNOW some people have done it...so where are all the tutorials people love to post?

I had a 229 for years, sold it and now a freind has one. He wants to put a short trigger kit in it, but is not confident enough to do it himself. I have completley dissasembled many firearms, built Fals, ect, but i'd like some specific instructions to avoid problems with someone elses gun. I come up dry on serches, so i am begining to think that this is one peopel are scared of. Can't be worse than my fathers BLR, or my NAA.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction without the stardard "sig Armorer" reply?

I bought the Sig Armorers DVD from Brownells. Nothing like getting it from the horses mouth. But I have more than one Sig so it was worth it for me

Most Sigsters shop at Top Gun Supply for Sig parts, accessories, and this video.

I detail stripped my 229ST, 226ST and 220ST by removing the grips, popping the decocking lever spring, trigger bar spring, removing the slide, turning the take-down lever counter-clockwise while pressing it through from the right.


Everything else drops just out to replace the trigger.

The only tricky part is re-assembling with the locking block pin in the right position along with the decocking spring and trigger bar.

It's all pretty easy after you've done it a few times.



This looks easy until you're trying to get the locking block in the frame with the pin and spring.

That's not a screw. It's the pin in the above photo.

Trigger bar... No, you don't have to bend it to get it back into the frame with the trigger hanging off the other end.

My advice, take it for what it's worth…

If you aren't a certified armorer, I would not (WOULD NOT) work on anyone else's gun under no circumstances!

Not saying you're incompetent, but, if something happens to your friends gun while he's shooting…All he has to do is say "I don't know what happened, Maine1 worked on my trigger, he got his info from youtube".

When my friends come to me and ask me to help them with their stuff, I refer them to a local gunsmith. I won't touch their firearms.

I agree. A friend asked me to help him field strip his new Browning Buckmark for cleaning. I suggested he find a gunsmith in Charlotte (1 hour drive).
