    Sig p228 feel?

    So I keep getting my p228 out and looking at it and carrying it occasionally. I really like this gun and it is a GREAT shooter. I just have gotten so used to the feel of my G23. I like the feel of the Sig in my hand, but I am thinking I could possibly make it thinner and have a little bit better feel in the hand, with some other grips. I have the stock plastic ones on there now. I know this gun has a devout following on here. I am a convert.

    Any body has suggestions, Im listening. I would like to maybe install some nice wood grips, preferrably uncheckered...but will entertain any ideas.

    Experiment I guess. I typically dont like the hogue rubber grips, but i have them on my 220, I dont think I'd like them on my 228 though. What exactly are you trying to fix?

    IMO, the 228 feels like I imagine Monica Bellucci might... Perfect. :)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I don't know yet. Maybe if there is a possibility of something just a little thinner. I can handle the gun just fine as is...but would just like to see if I could "fine tune" the feel. the gun is a great wepaon though. I really like it. My department authorizes Glock .40 and it was my EDC before here anyway so it just get the duty 98%

    I would recomend trying the wood grip off the P229 SAS. I believe it fits the P228, but you may have to check with Sig about that. It is a great looking, non checkered wood grip. I am not sure about thickness though.

    It will fit, and it is a bit thinner.

    I held and shot a 228 this past weekend. The gun felt even better than the 220, which fit my hand perfectly... Is there a word for something better than perfect?

    No, but there is a number; 228.

    VERY NICE SIXTO!

    I have never held or shot (obviously) a 228, how does it compare to the 220 in height, thickness?

    The 220 is a much larger gun. I'll have to go get both of mine to compare, give me a minute...

    The 228 is almost the exact dimensions of the 229. The main difference is the balance, making the 228 a better gun IMO.

    Are there differences between the 228 and 229 other than balance? Functions, caliber, single/double stack? Does Sig still make the 228? I didn't find it on the web site.

    SORRY FOR THE THREADJACK!

    They make them still...I think. They just don't export them...from Europe. IIRC. Also I think the main diff, SIXTO correct me if Im wrong. Is the p228 is a two piece slide where the p229 is a one piece, developed for tolerance of the higher pressure .40 and .357....also IIRC.

    Yes, that is correct partially. There are also material differences making the 228 a bit lighter, and the slide is folded rather than milled.

    CPO's pop up from time to time, but they are getting expensive. A lot of people now understand what a great gun the 228 is.
