I drove around to a few gun stores today looking to fill in the hole in my handgun collection. After the first store, I'd looked at quite a few pistols and really warmed up to the sig p6 from century a lot, it was $474. The trigger pull was pretty light and pleasent, maybe a little long. I left their and went to another one. They had a sig p228 that was lightly used for 600. I hmmed and hawwed over the grip size for a bit and decided to get it. But right when he was doing the background check I tried the trigger pull. Didn't like it. I don't care about the double, but the single was a bit heavy in my opinion. I'm not good at guessing but it was a lot heavier that a glock. The p6 had been a lot lighter and I did not even think about it. I told him I didn't want it and walked out. I'm wondering, what could I probably expect to get the trigger pull down to with easy modifications?

Not sure about "easy modifications" but I would point you to Bill Springfield at triggerwork.net to reduce trigger pull. Love the P6 though. Good luck.

Due some checking on bill S. Seems he has messed up some FAL triggers lately. Just wanted to throw that in.

You might go back and get the P-228, as that's not a bad price and they're getting scarce.

Simply replacing the hammer spring (and making sure everything was properly oiled) took over two pounds off the double action trigger pull, and brought the single action trigger pull on this pistol down to 3 lbs.

I went back and got it anyways,
I guess you can ad a 20 lb. spring and get it a lot lighter and 17-18 lb spring might work but that's more in the competition range.
Cooler thing, I found at my local gunstore that had a rack of the Sig mags at 40 a piece. 13 rders not 15.

I have a 225 that I've got probably 10,000 rounds through as I use it as my "newbie intro to bigger than .22 pistols pistol" and can confirm cleaning and lubing everything made a HUGE difference in trigger feel.
When I took it all the way down I'm positive that I was cleaning out gunk that started building up in 8/80 which is when it was produced.
