Honestly go to a range that lets you rent guns and just fire 1-2 clips per gun, its easy to find the one that you will like the most in that amount of time.
i'm actually going in right now. they only have the p225 and p228 for rent though
it should still give me an idea of how the p229 will feel and shoot. i'll be back later with update
somewhat, but keep in mind, that even in 9mm, the 229 has a different balance than the 228. Similar, though.
Imm back, i was wrong they had p225&p228 in a 9mm for rent, and p226&p229 in .40
so I love the P229 recoil is very low, feels as low, or possibly lower than the glock 19. the trigger seemed a bit heavier than the glock though. And I also LOVE the way the glock feels in my hands, more so than the sig actually, i read alot about ppl not liking how it feels in there hands?!?! i dont understand that, i think the grip is great! also shot the glock 27 the recoil is rediculous, my .44 colt andaconda has less recoil:P
, the reason i didn't want this gun in a .40 was i already have a beretta 96 .40 and i liked that the size of the p229 would have way low recoil shooting 9mm rounds.. but i also love the gock 19..
So i have made my decision, since the p229 9mm avereages about $100 more than the .40, i'm just going to get it in a .40 cal. then i'll sell my Beretta 96, and buy the glock 19, that way i can have both
i'll upload my targets here in a sec..
I have the P229 in 40. The nice thing about buying the 40S&W is that you can convert it to a 357sig or 9mm with a simple barrel change. The 357 sig uses the 40S&W magazines and if you convert to 9mm you have to buy 9mm magazines.
My P229 had a DAK trigger when I purchased and I converted it to DA/SA. I like the DA/SA much more than the DAK.
ya the one i rented was a DA/SA but trigger still feels a bit heavy, i think i'm just so used to my beretta that i compare every gun i shoot against it. I have probably shot over 2000+ rounds out of my Beretta since shooting any other gun.
do you guys think it would be wise for me to sell my Beretta 96 to get a glock 19? in your guys oppinion, do you feel like thats an upgrade or a downgrade?
What sold me on the P226 Elite was the short reflex trigger, which translates into less hand movement when shooting in the range. It is a well made gun and quite purdy.
Does anyone have any different information on that?
I am getting a CZ rami 9mm tomorrow never had a CZ just wanted one . My next Sig will be a 226
