Maintenance Tips for a Sig Sauer 226 9mm Gun : Assembling the Barrel of a Sig Sauer 226 9mm Gun

All right, here we are with our cleaned parts,
our field strip P226. And what we’re going to do is we’re going to get ready to reassemble
this firearm in general. And so just personally I like to go right back over. I know I’ve
done this a few times, but I’m going to re-look over this whole slide here, and I’m going
to make sure that it doesn’t look like I have any obstructions in my frame rails here, everything
is looking good. Looking at the bottom of my bolt, it’s looking real clean. Nice and
shiny. I’m going to look back here. The back of the slide, looking good. And basically
I’m just going to do the same thing real quick–just a real quick eye-over of the barrel. It’s
looking good. All right. So what I’m going to do now is we’re just going to reverse some
of the steps that–or all the steps, basically–that we did prior. I’m just going to set that slide,
I’m going to have on its top side. I’m going to take it with my left hand; I’m going to
take the barrel in my right hand, with the machined notches facing up. We’re just going
to slide that barrel back in. You may feel it catch a little bit, but it’s only catching
on this machined part right here at the front of the slide. And once it’s in there you can
kind of just let it drop, and you can see right here that the barrel’s sticking out
just a tad–just slide that barrel back in, and it’s going to seat itself. And as you
can see, holding that slide, that barrel’s seated. I’m not–there’s no play in there,
it’s just machine fit for itself. Next step after this is we’re going to get the guide
rod and spring, and we’re going to put it back in the slide.
