    Birthday SIG Dilemma

    I will be turning 50 three weeks from today, and my wife has finally gotten around to asking me what I want. I have been eyeing two handguns in particular and one rifle, all SIGs of course, and all within a couple hundred bucks of one another.

    The first is the P229 SAS in .357SIG. I already have a DA/SA P229 in that caliber that is my primary carry, but the melt job and the DAK trigger, and those luscious wood grips are calling my name.

    Another choice is the Revolution RCS (are they available yet?) in either Stainless or Nitron (another dilemma), likewise adorned, but with the wonderfull 1911 trigger. I already have several 1911's, but my belief is that you cannot have too many.

    The last choice of course is the 556 (same question on availability). I have a couple of ARs in my safe, and a Viet-Nam era M-16 (yeah a real one), not to mention a couple bolt rifles in .223 and a pre-ban Mini-14, plus a .223 barrel for my TC Contender. The trouble is that I rarely shoot any of them (except the M-16).

    Help!

    I may be biased but the 229 SAS seems to shout loudest!

    Gee such problems. May we all be forced to make such tough life choices.
    Why do I get that feeling it's going to be a very Happy Birthday no matter which SIG you finally decide on.

    All sound good, BUT, at some point they will stop making the SAS as they consider it a limited edition... Better to get it NEW NOW the used and more pricey later...

    I hadn't thought of that aspect of it. Makes my choice a little easier now, but I think the RCS is probably in the same boat.

    Since I'm 8 years older than you (almost 9), take some advise from the old guy - get both, you can never go wrong...

    I think for right now (Next couple of months) you can drop the 556. Speculation is you won't see one till the end of the year...... Of ciurse take that as rumor.

    The 229 IS a standard!!

    Hmmm....depending on how long you can hold off your SIG fix...I would opt for the 556....otherwise, get the P229 SAS.

    I'm going to have to go with the RCS. I am anxious to put one in a holster, too.
