    Sig 229 Elite

    This pistol is really talking to me and I think I'll pick one up next week. I'm interested in feedback about the short reset trigger. I know what short reset is, but I'm curious about how smooth the trigger is. My last 229 had an incurably stiff trigger.

    Thanks in advance....

    I've been shooting for 30+ years, much of it competitively. Over that time, I've owned more than 100 firearms. Presently, I own five Glocks, seven SIGs, Beretta, Kimber, Kahr, S&W, and a few others. The P229 Elite in .40 S&W is the finest firearm I've ever owned. Period.

    The trigger is glorious, the SRT is nice (personally, I think the regular SIG reset is good; the SRT is just icing on the cake), and the beavertail in combination with the SRT makes for a fantastic rapid-fire experience. None of my SIG triggers are "stiff", including my 1986-vintage P226. Like all SIGs, they like to be kept lubricated. They're not quite as smooth as butter, but they're close. By comparison, a Glock trigger feels like it has sand in the vasoline, if you know what I mean.

    Can't wait for the P229 Elite to be available in California, that was my 1st choice when I bought my P239 SAS. Can't say anything negative about the trigger or Sig in general.
    Man's got to know his limitations.

    Thanks, folks. You've sold me. I've heard some complaints about the wood grips. You guys don't seem to have that problem.

    The wood grips on all the SIG Elite models add 0.1" to the grip width. My P229 Elite is fine for my medium-sized hands, but it's about as big as I can control comfortably.

    However, I also have a P226 Equinox, and those wooden grips made it too big for me; I replaced the grips with Hogues, and it's now perfect.

    AVSmusic1: I usually shop at Hoffman's in Newington because they give you really good prices on trade ins.

    Unfortunately, Hoffman's was robbed last night. You've probably seen the story. Somebody drove a dump truck into the front door and then ran in and grabbed some guns.
