P320 AXG or P229 Legion SAO compact Login/Join 
I am deciding between these two. I live in the middle of nowhere New Mexico and don't have a hands on opportunity to evaluate them. I bought a P229 357Sig 30 years ago. Fantastic pistol except the grips were too darn fat.

I'm leaning towards the P229 for the SAO but I want the one with the smallest grip circumference.

Any help greatly appreciated, tape measure numbers even more.

The Legion will solve your fat grip problem of the original P229 due to a couple of things. The SAO trigger reach is reduced, and the G10 grip is overall smaller. You will love it. Don't have any experience with the P320 AXG.

Both are nice weapons, the Legion 229 in my humble opinion would be the better choice. The AXG feels very much like the p226/229 series but the Legion is just a notch above. Remember the AXG is also a striker fire and just a bit different in feel.

Don’t forget the Legion finish was PVD and then cera something or other. PVD is “weak” and the new finish is preferred. No idea what model year was first new finish.
