Customized my 229 DAK, Is it Sig Sacrilege?
I always wanted an all stainless P229, or an Elite but was not sure I'd be happy with a 42 oz brick. So when my son's friend said he was selling his 229 DAK black 40 Cal I made him an offer. He asked for $25 more and so the gun was mine for $475. I decided since the Sig warranty is not tranferable anyway, a customization was in the black DAK's future. So I turned it over to a close friend who's a gunsmith. I said to give me a fine satin finish on the aluminumn frame and slide. I also had a set of Hogue Extreme aluminum grips which I wanted in the same finish. I like contrast so I told him to leave all of the controls and appointments black. Here are the pics of the finished product.
