Description

The SIG P-Series Fat Custom Strut System was designed by Bruce Gray to help bring another Grayguns custom gunsmithing service to the drop in parts market.

For more than 40 years Bruce has been modifying factory struts to eliminate the typical double action crunch caused by the sharp edges and tip of the strut.

In his new design, the fat strut fully supports the main spring which reduces friction, spring bowing, and fatigue. The struts are cut using a precision EDM process, hand finished, and heat treated to the proper hardness.

Paired with the upgraded strut, is a durable seat machined in-house out of aircraft grade aluminum and anodized. These struts are indestructible and guaranteed for life. 

This full system also includes our custom P-Series Master Spring Set, to help reduce your pull weight for full tuning options.  Includes 17 pound spring (red) and 19 pound spring (blue).

Fit Guide

The system is compatible with the E2 style grips, as well as most older style grips. The system fits most of the following SIG DA/SA pistol variants:

  • P226
  • P228
  • P229
  • P225-A
  • P227

Disclaimer

These parts are intended for installation by a qualified armorer or gunsmith. In some cases professional fitting will be required by a trained, qualified armorer/gunsmith who is very familiar with the pistol’s action.

    Paired with the GG SRT kit and ELS trigger system the fat strut gives my Sig P226 Elite smooth as butter and fantastic! I’d recommend it for any Sig P226 or similar!!!

    Money Well Spent!

    I purchased this for a P229 Elite that I own and am giving a facelift to. The strut is part of a series of additions, including a short reset trigger, optic, and ergo grip. The Fat Custom Strut System really improves that double action pull, helping to make that first shot stay in the 10 ring. I intend to set this pistol up as an appendix everyday carry once I put a thousand rounds through it and find a holster to fit the optic. If you intend to improve on an already great pistol, this Grayguns kit would be money well spent!

    Worthwhile Upgrade.

    I installed this Grayguns P-Series hammer strut kit with the 19 lbs. spring in a late 90s German frame P229 (.40 cal.) and 2008 German frame P226R( .40 cal. converted to .357 Sig). For both pistols, each demonstrated reduced trigger pull for both single and double action. P226R Dbl. 10+ to 9 lbs/ Sing. 4 to 3.75 lbs.; P229 result Dbl. 9 lbs/ Sing. 4.5 lbs.) The promise of improvement is proven with each stroke of the trigger! This will compliment the Grayguns trigger & trigger bar I plan to order in the near future for both. Thank you for making great parts for these tried and true fighters!

    Big improvement on 225A

    win9639445 (verified owner)

    I installed this kit on my 225A with the blue mainspring. Smoothed out the DA pull so much. Also it installed rather easily. A definite must have for compatible P series guns.

    Transformative.

    George Carpenter (verified owner)

    P226R 40S&W, accurate with the usual crunch/stacky SIG DA trigger.
    Previous SIGs were reworked with Wolff springs and some Armorer Love™, to some success.
    Nothing compared to the Grayguns Fat Custom Strut with the Master Spring Set.
    The 19-pound Blue spring was originally installed with 100% duty reliability in mind.
    Marked improvement when compared to the factory original. Range test @ 36ºF in rain. 100% reliable.
    The Red 17-pound spring was installed.
    The firearm was then packed in snow to chill the firearm, magazines, lubricants, and cartridges.
    I was skeptical. Outcome?
    100% reliable with a mix of Federal HST3, Speer Gold Dot 165, and Winchester 180 gr Ball – despite the “weaker” spring, and below freezing operating conditions.

    The Grayguns ELS with Hybrid Trigger was added, nearly negating the DA pull difference in combat scenarios.
    Amazing.

    It’s all in the details

    Kevin (verified owner)

    It’s thr usual Grayguns quality. Excellent finish work and a great design. All the little details have been cared for and the result is a clean DA stroke that’s free of the gritty, crunchy feeling. Once you try it, you’ll want one in every pistol.

    Smooth pull!

    grammcgregor (verified owner)

    I put this in my late 90’s German Framed P229 when I was converting it from .40 S&W to 9mm – also put in the Gray Guns ELS Trigger – which I ordered from Sig – even though Gray Guns squared away my confusion and sent me the needed part FREE!

    My P229 went from a tired clunky trigger to a sweet shooting pistol moving out of the safe and not only onto my hip but out to the range!

    The strut makes the double action feel like it’s on roller bearings – absolutely sweet!

    Way to go Gray Guns and Keith Hosey for helping me so much at all hours!!
