Well as noted I'm right there with you and can tell you that not only does the 226 fit my hands great, my 226 Legion SAO is one of the most accurate and enjoyable guns I own (and I own a lot of different handguns). No reason to spend that much either, you should be able to find one for $1300 or less BNIBYes, the last finger grip is mainly my concern. That is why I referenced the 365.
the 226 has that little hook at the end for your pinky while the 229 does not.
**perhaps a pinky mag extension (if it’s available) is the way to go with a 229???
my main concern Is “comfort”
I don’t want to spend 16-1700 on a legion and not enjoy shooting it. I have a cheap canik.. tp9sfx. Full size, and awesome to shoot at the range. Love the grip and feel with the shape of the back strap with my meat paws but ready for something quality that will stand up to my 1911.
