ooops typo....meant 229
I really like mine. I took it to a training session to find ways to improve and the trainer had me shooting it to a 100 yards. It’s one of the few pistols I will not do any modifications on.
Yes! Love mine. Got it for a good price when the local Gander Mountain store was closing.
Good size, good ergonomics, good capacity, and an all-metal gun.
I like the weight and consider it an advantage when dealing with recoil.
It is my EDC and it does everything I need it to do and does it well.
So far the only "con" for this gun would be the SIG three-dot night sights...hard to pick up the front sight quickly. I've installed a set of TrijiCon HD sights to correct that.
Takes the SIG 229-1 magazines, but I buy the Mec-Gar 15 round 228/229 magazines and they work just as well as the SIG-branded magazines. Never had any problems with the Mec-Gar mags.
I have three holsters for it:
*a standard Fobus paddle holster,
*a Galco FLETCH Hide Ride with thumb break, and
*an IWB Hybrid made by Ozark Holster Co.
Probably use either the Galco or the Ozark the most of the time.
Hope this helps.
I like mine, just fine. That being said I may try the E2 grips as a slightly thinner grip might be nice.
Badhammer: I installed some Hogue G10 grips. They were just a bit thinner than the factory plastic grips, but just thin enough to make a big difference in handling. An added plus is that the Hogue's have a wee bit more "bite" to them. Try them before the E2's.
My favorite pistol right next to my Tanfo Hunter 10mm.
Which version of the Hogue G10 grips did you select?
Checkered? Chain Link? Piranha?
One of my favorite Sigs, mine has over 6000 rounds through it. I don’t shoot it much anymore but it was a workhorse for a few years. I have a German made 228 as well, I can’t tell a difference in balance. Same same.
Sig P220 Elite Dark, W. German 220/226 Navy/226 Tac Ops/226R Stainless/228/229 Legion/229R/M11-A1D
Glocks, HK, Walther, XDs, etc, etc...
Have the E2 grips on my M11-A1 that Mr. Robert Burke converted to DAK for me. Love this pistole ! ! !
Went with those grips as they are the thinnest from what I could glean on here. Like them for helping work with my bum right paw, but they are quite abrasive for CC as they are so grippy.
Nevertheless, they helped a lot.
Would like a comparison with the Hogue grips.
