I want a new .40 and I'd like to make an anti-gunner cringe somewhere in the world. Therefore, I'm in the market for a big, bad .40 S&W. I just got my P226 MK25.....freaking solid gun. Most accurate handgun I've ever fired...either that, or it just 'clicks' with me....so I'm impressed with Sig's latest output. I also used to have a 90-Two in .40 and it was a SMOOTH shooter.....so I have experience with the Beretta, but only experience with the P229's bigger brother. I can get a P229R w/ night sights for $769 thru Sig's IOP program- http://www.topgunsupply.com/sig-sauer-p229r-9mm-da-sa-legacy-iop.html I can get the Beretta 96A1 for $599 thru Grab-A-Gun- http://grabagun.com/beretta-96a1-40sw-4-9-bl-3-12rd.html Beretta 96A1 comes with 3 mags, but no night sights. P229 comes with 2 mags, but has night sights. If I got a Beretta 96A1, I'd like to get some Trijicon night sights for it, unfortunately, my local smiths are hack jobs, so I'd probably have to send the slide off to get the sights pushed out and the new ones installed. Choices...........someone point me in the right direction. I'd like to get both, but I'm PCSing to Korea soon, and wanna enjoy whatever I get.
