    I'm going to become a Sig owner next month

    I went down to my favorite "toy" store again just to see what they had. I was still thinking about getting a Sig Sauer P226 or P229 in 9mm. It turns out they a barely used P229R in 9mm on consignment for $775. I ended up putting it on layaway and they were really flexible with me by allowing me to put down a little less than they usually require.

    The P229 fits my hands like a glove, almost better than my Glock 19. The one I put on layaway also came with a light and light mount for the gun which I thought was pretty cool. Does the P229R normally come with a light and mount?

    They don't normally come with accesories. Welcome to the Signess.

    Nice guns.... I have a P229 in 9mm and I traded a Glock 22 for my P226 in .40S&W.
    Yes they fit well in the hand... As per the light and rail, the R models have the rail as part of the frame and lights are not normally included.
    I have the SIG tactical light/laser on the rail of my P226R. I really like it.....

    I switched to a P228 a few months ago and consider it to be "the one" for EDC. Was a G17 guy, but the Sig just does it better for me.

    You will be very happy with it I'm sure. Sounds like a great deal also with the light included.

    It does normally come with the light rail, that is what the "R" in the model number means. Sig did sell a small number of light and pistol packages to select distributors a few years ago, but I doubt your gun is one of these as its a used gun.

    I'm a SIG owner too!
    Layaway is good!
    I'm almost sure to loose track of this thread in the meantime, but if you think about it........PM me when you get it and give me the link to thread (with pics of course). Sounds exciting!

    Sigs are great guns. I really like them in 9mm a lot and miss my P228. They are accurate and built like tanks.

    I want a Sig soon, too. A P220 Carry to be exact. I don't know what to buy first. Springfield 1911 GI, FNP-45 USG, the P220, Rem 700 or a Yugo M70.... sigh... Or dump money into the car.... ehh

    Congrats on the new purchase. Sigs are nice to shoot :)
