    Two tone or Black Sig 229 -40 caliber

    First off I want to thank all members on this site regarding questions I had about maybe buying a Sig 229 Elite -40 caliber pistol! Last week at our local range range I rented a Sig 229 Elite and found that this pistol was certainly a joy to shoot! This pistol hit where I pointed it & recoil was like a 9mm pistol! On these findings I have decided to buy this pistol and my question is this--This pistol will be used for home defense and plinking at the range. I practice point shooting and was wondering if the:color of the pistol (two-tone verus black) would affect accuracy in a low light (nite lights on) situation? Any opinions from shooters on this would be help-ful to me. Many thank-you's!

    I've owned both TT and Black SIG's. They both shoot just as well and are easy to get on target in both full day, low light or any light condition. I've never owned a 229, but have heard very good things about them as well.

    Don't think it would matter

    I would think that if it is dark enough that you can see the night sights, it is too dark to see the color of the pistol.

    The Sig P229 in .40 is a fine gun. Mine is the dark finish:

    Keep it dark to keep the price down a few bucks. One great pistol.

    Thumbs up

    I personnally like all dark, though the two tones and all light cost and are worth more, possiblly due to....? I haven't checked , but does the 229 have the nitron finish? My sp2022 shows no wear, even from a fobus holster and being rubbed againest the seat belt buckle in the car repeatlly.

    Its hard to beat basic black. I also feel, my opinion, that they conceal better. In the unlikely event that the gun is seen, in the shadows of your cover garment, all that is seen is a vague black image. In my opinion shiny object tend to attract attention. YMMV.
