I have just picked one of these up and I wonder if someone can tell me whether holsters for the standard p226 or the p226r will fit the st version? I know that the rail on the 'r' is not quite the same shape as the picatinny used on the ST but I'm having a chore finding anything 'off the shelf' that is marked just for the ST. There are plenty of choices with holsters for either the p226 or the p226r but I don't want to buy one of those if they aren't going to work. I sure would appreciate your help!

Thanks folks, I can't wait to be able to take her out :o

I have no idea. The two places where you will get the best answers are #1 whomever the holster maker is & #2 Sig Sauer. I have found both easy to work with in the past. Nice looking gun by the way.

Yes I mailed Sig last week, but had no response.

Some will fit. I can't remember which one's. I just took the gun with me and tryed them on in the store.

Great Gun, Congrats!

Thank you, she sure is pretty! I'd prefer to order online and so it looks like I'll just need to buy one of each and see what flies. The 'R' would make more sense, but it appears that only trial and error will solve this little mystery!

Yeah, e-mail most of these large companies is pretty useless. However, Kahr got back to me the next day and actually answered the question I asked. Emailing the holster makers tends to to go the same way. If I get an answer at all it is never to the question I asked. I have found that calling them is usually effective although it can be trying on the nerves. That's the problem with large companies. I would call Sig and if the first guy or gal can't answer the question ask to speak to someone else.

Holsters for the P220/P226 R (railed) do fit :D


Ps - Sig did reply to my email in the end, but the rep said and I quote "Sorry, I have no idea". Nothing like knowing ones product eh
