    equinox series

    so, for those of you with an equinox...are there any other differences with your gun other than the 'finishing touches' - that is, mods or performance enhancements? from reading the specs on the sig website, there doesn't seem to be any difference mechanically. and does the manufacture seem to be any different - by that I mean, since it's a special edition, does it seem that extra attention was given to the overall quality/finish? sorry for all the questions - I really like this gun, but have not been able to see one in person. thanks in advance -

    although i don't own a equinox, i do own the standard version of the 229. prior to purchasing this gun, i tested an equinox in the 226 & 229. the only difference i was able to find was the obvious finish, wood grips, and the fiberoptic/nightsights. for me, this was not worth the $180 difference in price they were asking. hope this helps.

    It sure looks sweet

    But the wooden grips make the handle kinda fat for my hand

    I agree on the grips. I was interested in one in P220, and I haven't handled one yet, but we have a P226 Blackwater in the shop. I believe the grips on the Blackwater are the same for the Equinox. I cannot stand those grips, they are terrible. The SAS wooden grips are better, I don't know why they didn't use the same sort of style.

    And apparently those grips for the Equinox and the Blackwater alone are very expensive.

    I'm just the opposite. I love the Equinox grips and it is one of the reasons I'm considering buying this gun for carry.

    so I went to the shooting range tonight, cuz over the weekend I had the opportunity to talk with someone who owns a 229 and strongly recommended it. I decided I needed to try it, and rented both a 226 and 229. I shot 50 rounds through each and, in these novice hands, did better with the 226 (not brilliant by any means, but better...) so I just ordered my first gun - a P226 Equinox! I am so freakin' PSYCHED!!! I should have it by friday. thanks for the help you've offered here

    Do you have a 226 Crimson Trace in your shop?

    How do those feel? I cannot find a shop with that gun in my area...I'll have to buy it sight unseen from an online retailer.

    Are those grips tacky and rubbery...or is it closer to a plastic?

    (by tacky, mean they grab well...not that they are fasionably bad)
