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


Alright here we are here is our slide assembly,
we got our barrel back in, we got our guide rod back in, I am just going to check it make
sure everything is tight, everything is seated correctly. I know that is seated correctly,
I am just going to come over to my lower receiver here and I am going to check to make sure
there is nothing obstructed in this frames rails or this frame rails. Now I am going
to spin it over and I am going to do the same thing with this frame rail, nothing in it.
I am going to do that one more time, so we are just going to repeat I am going to take
the slide in my left hand, receiver in my right hand and put these rails and you are
going to see these notches in the back of the slide. We are just going to set these
rails right inside that, make sure it is going to be a smooth fit and you are going to feel
it kind of pop and that is ok. Basically from this point you are going to start to feel
tension, now that tension is you are going to be constricting that recoil spring. So
I am just going to take this firearm into my right hand and I am going to put, you know
just kind of like I am going to hold it, I am going to put it in the meat of my hand
here. Hold the top of the slide with my first two fingers, I am going to put my thumb inside
of the trigger assembly, just as added support and I am going to start using both hands to
inch this slide back. Now just like we did it the first time here is our catch here,
and the notch and our frame and when those two things are lined up, we can just flip
that. That is locked; just bring the frame, the slide back forward, here we are, I am
going to use my “Auto D-cock”. “D-cock” is the hammer, I am going to pull that hammer
back and I am actually going to pull this slide back and I am going to lock it in place,
just to make sure that everything is feeling good and everything is feeling tight. Which
it is, look over it, I am going to release the slide, I am going to de cock it, perfect.
Nice reassembly, next thing we are going to go over it we are actually going to do a final
wipe down and talk a little bit about safety.
