    took my new 229 to the range today. i put 200 rounds through it. not one hic cup.. i don't know which is more accurate my 220 or this229. i will have to take them both to the range at the same time...probably just splitting hairs though. i am gonna get the 232 in may. then i am done . for a while at least. used to be a glock guy and a .45 guy. but the 9mm and sig have won me over.of course i have to get a sig 1911 to complete the collection and then i am done for sure. i think :rofl:

    The 229 is a great choice! Make sure you keep the rails greased. :)

    Also, you may want to reconsider getting a SIG 1911 though. There are better 1911s to be had than a SIG.

    And yes, I have a few...

    Anyway...

    You may have difficulties in getting a holster that fits the SIG 1911 properly. I have been told, the SIG is a bastard-child 1911.

    Good luck.

    Thanks. I would have to say my seven year old the P226ST is my favorite. It's a sweet shooter with 20k on the clock.

    It's even sweeter with proprietary SRT, action work, and a few other goodies.

    When it finally dies, I have a spare (still un-shot, in the box)...

    That poor sig (your spare)is never gonna get shot. My 226 after 20+ years and many thousands of rounds hardly even looks used. Absolutely no frame rail wear and very minimal wear and tear. Springs do need changing every few years but thats all I've done and it has never malfunctioned. never.

    I see no use for the rail on pistols.

    I would only add TFO Night Sights to a pistol.

    I would pay extra for a non-rail gun!

    Nice looking guns Cobra. When I bought my Sig 522 last night, the guy at the gun shop showed me a brand new P225. He said Sig made a few new ones a while ago. If you need anything like spare parts for that model, get it now. It will be discontinued shortly. They wanted $839.00 for the P225.

    I agree to a point. My nightstand P220ST has a rail (that's the only way it was available at the time) and I have a light on it... so that's okay, but I spent $300 having the rail removed from my P226ST (shown in post #7 above).

    The trigger guard lug is another annoying, worthless doo-dad found on too many pistols.

    The 225 is a classic.
