    Anyone have experience with both? TGS has them for the same price w/NS. 228R comes with standard trigger and 1 mag, 228 has short trigger and 2 mags. This will be my EDC, and bedside table gun, so I will either go with a Surefire x300 or a Surefire handheld (if standard 228). Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you talking about the SRT trigger or the short reach trigger?

    All I know is with my short fingers it helps to use the short trigger on Sigs.

    If I was using a 228 as a bedside gun I'd want a rail to mount a light. The last thing I would want to do at 2:00am is run through proper
    handgun/flashlight grip positions

    Was talking about the short reach trigger, not the SRT.

    I recently got the 228 no rail from TGS, for 3 reasons.
    1. The short trigger (most important for my hand)
    2. Don't care for the rail at all
    3. 2 mags vs 1

    Have not had a chance to shoot it yet. But, I can tell you that, from dry firing, the DA pull is quite heavy, definitely heavier than on any other Sigs I've owned in the past. The SA pull is crisp, at about 5 lbs is my guess. Seems to be a quality piece, with excellent fit and finish.
    But, the proof will be in the pudding, when I go shoot it.

    The short reach trigger p228. You get an extra mag and trigger for the same price. That is a $80 value. If it's going to be a carry gun , then rail is not going to mean much and like you said you have a X300 flashlight.

    I'm good with or without the rail to be honest. I like the 2 mags vs 1 (saves me $32) and definitely am interested in hearing how it shoots. Please post a range report when you go. Pics would be great too. Thanks.
