I have a P229R in my safe I have used on occasion for duty and off duty carry. Regular trigger, stock grips. Always worried if I went to ground fighting and the grips broke the the trigger spring and decocker spring would be lost. So I ordered SIGs aluminum grips. They are contoured different and slightly smaller. Make a world of difference in my hands. Something to think about.

The chances of your factory grips breaking are like one million to one...
Show me the exact numbers and who compiled them or is a million to one your best guess?

I am in uniform and my duty weapon has hit the pavement when in the holster during fights. If I am worried that a plastic part COULD break then it is a viable concern for me since that part retains both the trigger return spring and decocker spring.

But thank you for the attempt to reassure me.

i also advocate the aluminum grips. for fit , if nothing else. the better your pistol fits the better off you are. if there's any exposed [un-anodized/un-coated] aluminum on your grips, watch out for corrosion :) .

I have several kinds of grips for my SIGs including high-end NILLS. The SIG aluminums are my favourite for pure functionality. They are thin and "grippy" without being too aggressive on the man hide.

I'm with you.

I have aluminum grips on several of my guns.

Sig P229



My Sig P226 X5



Here is a Sig P226 that was a Swiss Police trade in - it really looked sad

I sent the slide to CCR CCR-REFINISHING for $79 they really dressed it up.



It looks and shoots like a new P226 don't ya think?

:cool:
