    Talking Got my first Sig!

    When I went to the gunshow this weekend my first priority was to sell my spare M&P. After walking around the show for a couple of hours I found someone who was happy to give it a nice home. After the sale was concluded I walked around for awile to see what I could find.

    I stumbled upon a dealer with a nice selection of Certified Pre-Owned Sigs. The dealer told me they were government turn-ins and that most were never issued or fired. I was naturally a little skeptical of the fact, but I picked one out and did a thorough inspection. Much to my surprise it was in prestine factory new condition. The accessories were all still shrink wrapped in the case.

    Anyway so this doesn't get anymore longwinded I picked up a P229 .40 DA/SA with night sights for a mere $599 plus tax and background.

    I went straight to the range and put about 120 rounds throught it.

    My first impressions: It is the most accurate gun I have EVER shot. Also no malfunctions of any kind what so ever.

    Now I currently own a SW1911, M&P 40c, and Glock 30sf, and have owned an XD service, and HK USP 45 Compact in the past. While I love and adore all the guns i just mentioned the Sig outshoots them all.

    The DA/SA took some getting used too with the DA shots being a little squirrelly at first. But right out of the box I was shooting quarter sized groups at 15 yards which is never that easy for me to do.

    My ONLY complaint so far is that the grips that came on the gun are a little loose fitting on the left side right where my right thumb knuckle sits on the rear of the gun (where the beavertail would be on a 1911). As a result after 120 rounds the grip had managed to pinch my skin enough times to remove some skin.

    I plan to fix this as soon as possible with a nice pair of Walnut grips.

    Does anyone know of a decent place to get some grips?

    You did good! I am trying to get rid of my M&P 9c and get another Sig. For a quality Sig CC I bought a Sig 232 and put Hogue grips on it.
    You might try the Hogue grips for the 229, under $20.00.

    The Hogue aluminum grips are very nice and much thinner than stock, but are expensive and cold in the winter.

    Congrats on your 229! I've got one, but thanks to hard times at work mine hasn't been fired yet. Something I hope to change in the next couple of weeks along with it's new "brother" a special SIG 220 that I should be picking up Friday. That will make 4 SIG kids in the family (239 and 226 rounds them out).

    Hogue. Get a set of exotic wood checkered grips. Mine are Kingwood.
    Do not get Rosewood for your SIG grips. They might warp.
    The Kingwood is extremely stable.

    Try a set of Hogues. They Satisfaction Guarantee them and if for any reason you do not like them - you can return them for a full refund.

    SO....even if you just don't like them, they will take them back. But, you will like them.

    You're screwed.
    It might be your first, but it won't be your last.
    Yo Macklin, great party, but no whiskey. We go home now.
