I recently purchased a "new" P229 ASE from Gander online and it arrived to FFL with black Hogue grip. I haven't been able to find a model with this grip. Can anyone shed light on this? Was I sold a used gun?
I will be procuring an elite stainless in P226 or P229. I've studied the specifications. Obviously I need to handle each to make a final decision. That's the problem. I reside in a small town in Texas. There are no gun dealers with large enough inventory to carry both. Any advise please?
