Sig Sauer P229 Review

Sig Sauer P229

This is a review of the Sig Sauer P229 .40 S&W caliber pistol.  This particular gun is my primary self-defense weapon and mine is an older model that I have owned for many years now.  It is the base model DA/SA prior to the accessory rail being added and with the older style grip (which I have replaced with a Crimson Trace laser grip).


Crimson Trace LG-429 Sig Sauer P229 Laser Grip Review

I had been intrigued by the various laser options being marketed these days and decided to outfit my beloved Sig P229 .40 with the Crimson Trace LG-429 grips.  This model incorporates the front-activated switch for the laser.  It is very natural – just take your regular  grip and as your middle finger applies normal pressure the laser activates.  There is no “thinking” involved.  It simply works.
