    Hey All-

    I have a friend with W German sig 226 that has a extra feature at the end of the takedown lever, on the right side of the frame. For some reason instead of being flat like others it has a machined “button” protruding from the end. I have tried to do some searching but have not seen another like it or a part number for it. Does anyone know what it is for or do they have one like it?

    Thanks for the help; it is just one of those mysteries in life that is bugging me right now.

    ... if that 'button'/protrusion is depressed, does the takedown lever (on the opposite side) then protrude a little bit from the frame?

    ... if not, then it might be a LaserMax laser sight on/off switch.
    The LaserMax replaced the recoil guide rod/spring with their own design.

    The takedown lever (on the left side of the frame) will have a teeny button for 'on'; and the right hand side is the 'off' button.

    Dissassemble the P226, remove the slide; remove the recoil spring/guide rod assembly. Is that a laser?

    :)

    I'll take a look tonight and get back to you, I don't think it has an on off switch on it but I'll look closer.

    Thanks.

    I was able to finally take another look and it does not move the lever laterally at all. In fact it is very solid. No switches or buttons to make it for a laser. Do you think it was to interact with a retention holster or device of some type. I'm stumped. I see no marks on it identifying a maker either.
