SIG Sauer Enhances Ergonomics of P226 and P229 Pistols

January 12, 2010  | 


SIG Sauer Inc. has introduced the E2 Enhanced Ergonomics versions of the P226 and P229 pistols. The SIG Sauer E2 models provide improved handling for a wider range of shooters than ever before in two of the most popular SIG handgun platforms, according to the company.

The newly designed one-piece modular grip with improved texture reduces area in the back strap and overall circumference, providing a better fit over a wider range of hand sizes, according to SIG.

The modular grip snaps in place, eliminating the need for grip screws. A lanyard loop is standard. E2 models feature the Short Reset Trigger (SRT) system, providing a 60% reduction in trigger reset. E2 models also include a reduced reach trigger, providing an even better fit for shooters with smaller hands. A redesigned decocking lever can be combined with an optional ergonomic slide catch lever for a reduced profile; ideal for high two-hand grip techniques.

Both models feature a frame machined from 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum with a black hard-coat anodize finish, and accessory rail for tactical accessories. Slides are machined from a stainless steel billet and coated with a proprietary Nitron finish for long lasting durability and corrosion resistance.

The E2 version of the P229 adds features, such as an updated slide design to replicate the classic look and feel of the P226 and P228 with a new external extractor to improve reliability and durability. A new magazine design increases 9mm capacity to 15-rounds in a flush-fit profile; that's two more rounds than the standard P229, and the same capacity as the P226.

The E2 Enhanced Ergonomics P226 and P229 are currently available in 9mm with Nitron finish and SIGLITE Night Sights. Both models ship in a hard case with three 15-round magazines and retail for $1,149.

I live in one of the most anti gun states in the U.S.A. I WOULD LIIKE TO PURCHASE a used M11-A1 Sig in good condition from a private party in California Soon the DOJ roster is bound to drop all guns from their list each time the Attorney General and this administration here of a gun used by criminals.
