    SIG's Choice of Grease

    Most likely it's Mil-Comm TW25B, Sig's grease of choice. I don't think it contains any lithium.

    You're not going to put that back in the pistol are you? When you remove the trigger, you're supposed to let that part launch across the room and never look for it. It's kind of like an exorcism! :D

    Have you got a time machine in that shop of yours? The machined ignition parts that Sig used to make before they switched to MIM were pretty nice. They still needed some work but were good parts.
