    SIG 229/229R holsters?

    Question for those who know:

    Does a 229R (without accessories mounted, obviously) fit into the same leather as a 229? I think we're changing over within the next year, and want to know if I'll need a new holster.

    Thanks.

    No it will not. The rail adds too much.

    Fatboy 97 is correct. Be sure to let whoever is making the holster know that your 229 has a rail.

    Um, OK...my 229 has a rail!

    I've been eyeing a Def Con for some time, but have held off on ordering due to the supposed changeover. I'll have to make 100% sure they're on the way before I make the order, natch... Saw a bunch when I was at HQ last month, so it's looking good.

    Thanks for the info, fellas.

    I had to send a holster back not too long ago because he forgot it was for a P229R. So they do not fit..

    This suddenly dawned on me...

    If I order a leather holster for a 229R, will a standard 229 still fit with decent retention and without messing up the molding??

    Thanks...

    I once had both guns and the answer is yes, however, the P-229 will be slightly loose in the P-229R holster. Not real bad but noticeable!
