I have a P226 DAK that I want to install the hogue grips on. I have heard that only a sig armorer should install these because of an issue with substantially messing up the trigger pull weight . It seems easy enough to do. What would cause problems with the trigger? Can I install these myself?

I don't know about the 226 but I put the wrap arounds on a 229 and it made it too fat.

Shootin4fun- I went through the Sig Armorer's course last summer and IIRC, they said not to put on regular Hogue grips on the DAK. It would cause a binding on the trigger bar spring.

They told us that Hogue would be coming out with a DAK specific grip. I think it's out, but I'm not sure. Contact Hogue, they're customer friendly.

You can change the grips yourself if you're handy with mechanical type issues. Just be careful not to let the trigger bar spring come out of its holes. You don't have to worry about the de-cocking lever spring because DAKs don't have it. Also, get a screw driver that fits the grip panel screws, that way you won't bugger up the screw heads.

I put Hogue grips on my 226 AND I put them on with hex screws. Hogue sells em.

I like it, my hands are kinda big and they made my grip feel more fuller and solid.

The new Hogue grips are now specified to fit DAK's.

I have the newest ones out and they dont specify on the hogue site that they are diffrent for a DAK. I think I will try to put them on, I'll just be careful not to overtighten the screws. Worst case is I'll have to put the factory ones back on. Thanks for the info.

Anyone here put them on a DAK by chance?

I contacted Hogue and Ron Herman from customer support e-mailed me back

"All of our Rubber and Wood grips have been internally modified for the DAK’s, and fit all earlier versions.
Thank you, "

Thanks Nexxus6. This helps alot.

ETA: I just put the grips on. Its was very easy. The only thing to watch out for is the trigger return spring. The Hogue grips are clearly manufactured to allow clearance for the spring. I did not fire the weapon but it dry fire functioned good. No diffrence in trigger pull weight. Thanks again for the help.
