    sig 229 le

    i recently bought a sig 229 nib from a gun store. i was told it was a limited edition that came with a tactical light but they gave the tactical light to another customer because his went bad. so they marked it down from 1000 to 750. is there any difference between a le and a regular 229 except the light that i didnt get? the right side grip clicks when i press on it and the decocking action seems rough but this is my first sig. are either one of those anything to worry about?

    Regarding the right side grip "clicking" - perhaps the grip screws are loose. You could tighten them with a screwdriver and see if that helped.

    The decocker should smooth out over time as you work it up and down. It is probably just new.

    I've had to send 2 Sigs back due to grip screw issues.

    Decocking Like pogo said you need to shoot it a few 100 times to break it in.
