My remarks were in regards to the Arex line of Pistols : I don't do the competition shooting anymore. That was never my thing : I do appreciate the skill required to participate 

What did you do to your Rex Zero?

I polished the Trigger bar(side against Frame) Polished the hammer strut and installed a competition Spring Kit . Last I  took a limited amount of materiel off the Firing Pin Block(Making reset much shorter) 


Should be the same kind of deal on the Alpha then? I plan to polish everything when I get it, but I’m not 100% sure on part cross comparability with these. I’ve had a could Shadows and tanfos that I’ve done all my own fitting and trigger work on, but I’ve never had a Sig style platform.

To bad I didn't know you wanted an alpha I have a Brand New one : I haven't even fired a full mag thru : I love the gun But shouldn't have bought it : I'm in security and the Alpha is at the very least a beautifully made range toy : To answer your question No the parts in the alpha aren't quite the same. There's no Firing Pin block . Changing the Hammer strut spring is child's play. The Rex Zero 1 was not for the average guy who has no clue of how to take a weapon apart.  You can polish the Strut and Trigger bar : Should I decide to keep the Alpha that's what I will do. The only other thing would be the Straight Trigger when they are available. IMO I'm not sure Straight Triggers benefit that much. I have a Sig 320 that I purchased a Grayguns completion Trigger kit for. They have been Out of the version with a straight Trigger for ages . So I purchased the Curved Trigger one to get the 3.75 Trigger pull. Afterward I got my hands on the straight Trigger : There was no difference performance speaking. For competition I can see them For Security or HD IMO not needed. Maybe not even wise : JMPO

I’ve been thinking about trying something different from my stock 2, and got this on a whim. I may turn around and sell it but wanted to at least get one in my hands to mess with.

I thought all of the US ones had a firing pin block?

Maybe they do Because I am debating on Selling I haven't taken it apart : Although not sure why you'd even want the reset Shorter

Because they were added to the shipping batch later and weren't planned at first. So according to original paperwork everything was ok. It happens... 

Yeah I am sure it does. Not blaming you : What's unfortunate in Today's world is Nobody ever takes responsibility for screwing up. Hopefully they found them.

They aren’t kidding when they say these grip screws are loctited from the factory. Even with a heat gun, I was only able to get one off and strip the other 3.

 

What kind of fastener does this gun use? Is it something you could likely take out with a heat gun and then the use of an impact driver.

It’s a T10 Torx. The screws look to be the same as what comes on a 226.

That’s damn tiny for a grip screw. But then, I’m used to CZs and Tanfos which annoyingly rely on one screw per grip panel.

They’re out now. Made a notch with a dremel and replaced them. Can confirm, they take Sig 226 grip screws.
