    I have a SIG P229 chambered in .357 SIG. When I am not carrying it, it sports an old school TRL-3 weapon light (hey, it works!). I've been thinking about getting a better one along with a light-bearing holster because it's probably a good idea to carry one these days. For a long time it was...
  2. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I need a new shotgun and just spent a boat load of money on other things, so I've decided to choose between my two most beloved concealed carry pistols as they overlap so much in their use. The LTT trigger on the Beretta is just so much lighter than the SIG in both DA and SA, it's reset is also...

  4. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I recently bought a p229 and I was wondering what type of ammo you guys like? I have 90 hollow points although they’re all steel case. How does the gun handle steel casings? Do you guys use brass? If you could link me to any online websites for ammo I would appreciate it.

    I just wanted to give a shout out to XS for creating excellent "Standard" dot night sights. I apologize if you've seen some of these pics before, and I also apologize in advance for the poor image quality in some cases, especially comparing the sights. It's an old pic from an old phone and I no...
  6. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Hey all. This is my first post on the forum. I just picked up a sweet deal on a Sig P229 Elite .40 SW. However, the magazines that came with the gun are stamped 9mm. I just want to confirm that I will be able to use these at the range with no risk of harming the gun. Thanks!
  7. SIG Sauer Pistols
    All: I own 4 pistols - Sig P229R in .40; CZ 75 Compact in 9mm; Ruger GP100 .38/.357; and an IWI Jericho 941 FS in .45 (it's a clone of the CZ 75). I'm a relative newbie to this shooting lark and am at the point where my groupings at 7-10 yards are OK and, on a good day, decent. I visit the...
  8. Legion Series
    So after shooting about 200 rounds through my never fired P229 Legion 40 cal I was having trouble cycling the slide and jams started occurring. Turns out that on disassembly that the multi-stranded recoil spring was deformed and bent at about the midpoint. On contact to Sig they initially sent...
  9. Ammo and Reloading
    I am new to handguns, purchased a Sig because of the ratings, wanting something that would absolutely work for home defense. Went through training with my Sig (P229 .40) and the recoil is ROUGH. I was told to try a LITE ammo. Thoughts on LITE ammo (with this gun in particular) &...
  10. X-Series, Sport, Mastershop Pistols
    I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong place, there is no explicit P229 choice, so I went with what I thought was correct. My wife bought a P229 in 2008, NIB, but the box went up in a fire and we are stumped trying to figure out which model she has. Points of interest (before I...

  13. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Hi all! Already searched through forum, but did not find any post solving my question :confused: I own a 2014 P229 Elite Scorpion, chambered .40 S&W I got offered an oem barrel, made by an austrian company called "IGB Austria", chambered .357SIG, but they are not sure, if it fits my Elite...
  14. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I think I already know the answer, but looking for confirmation from the group. I bought a pristine P229 (short extractor) off the consignment wall at my LGS. This pistol was CLEAN. After 150 rds of .40 and then about 40 rds .357 sig (barrel change) I had some failure to return to battery on the...
  15. Ammo and Reloading
    So, I am having trouble finding the right ammo for my P229. So far I have ran Remmington FMJ 180 grains - that ran through no problem. Yesterday I tried HPR 180 grain TMJ, it jammed repeatedly - (this leads me to believe tapered ammo is not a good option?) I still have HPR 180 grain JHP's to...
  16. SIG Sauer Gunsmithing
    Bought this pistol new about 5 yrs. ago and have fired about 2,000 rounds thru it. I have always had a problem with the right grip screws coming loose on this P229 .40. Constantly tightening them resulted in a crack on the upper right wood grip and a stripped thread on the lower right grip...
