    Anyone carry a 229 SAS?

    I think .357 sig is a great cartridge, and so I have switched barrels in my .40 sig. However, the gosh-darn rails hang up when I reholster

    My question is do any of you use a 229 SAS for carry?

    That was the first gun I bought for carry when I took my test. I like it as a range gun. I found it a bit fat for carry and it was a bit heavy. I may have a different opinion now that I've experienced carrying a few guns.

    I had one and loved it. I carried it in a VM-II.

    Now I have a P-220 SAS and I love it even more. I carry it in a VM-II!

    I also have two other SIG's with rails and have not had any problem with the rails "hanging up".

    What holster are you using?

    I've carried one for about a year now in a K&D eagle defender. The weight wasn't an issue due to the holster and a proper gun belt. The gun is very accurate and the trigger is nice and smooth. I put some Nills grips on mine which reduced the girth of the grip and made the pistol very comfortable for me. The only thing I don't particularly like on the gun is the long trigger pull. All in all a great carry gun.

    I think it does sound like maybe you should try another holster for your current weapon unless you have your heart set on an SAS. I'll bet if you call Lightning Arms, they might have a VM-II to fit it.

    The SAS is a sweet carry gun, it is solidly built like all SIG's and yes, the sharp edges are smoothed out with no rail. I also like the DAK for carry purposes. You should eventually get one no matter what you end up doing, it's a keeper!
