If you’ve ever been in a gun shop and trying to determine what features come on a SIG Sauer P226, P220, P229, P227, P225, or any other classic line P-Series pistol, it’s helpful to know how to identify whether a Short Reset Trigger Kit (more commonly known as an SRT Kit) has been installed.

Ferrari Steve shows how to quickly check for the SRT Kit by clearing the chamber, dry-firing the pistol, holding down the trigger, racking the slide, then releasing the trigger slowly to listen and feel for the reset.

Steve uses a classic West German P226 (without an SRT Kit installed) and a newer P226 MK25 (with an SRT Kit installed) and a P226 Legion to show the differences, then shows you the internal workings of the action to explain how an SRT kit works, and why replacing the sear and safety lever can shorten the reset.

Now you can check for the existence of an SRT Kit in your local gun shop with confidence, and help others learn, too!
