Default Sig grips

Sig makes a nice double stack pistol but my real gripe with them is the factory plastic grips. They are very slick and just aren't great for shooting. Many I see have the Hogue wrap around style and while these negate the slippery part - they are kind of "chunky" and can make operating the DA trigger difficult if you have smallish hands. The wrap around style works very well on the single stack P239 and mine wears a set, but on the common double stack models like the P226, P228, and P229 they ain't that great. A cost effective solution is to go with the Hogue rubber panels that leave the front strap uncovered. They fix the problem with slippery yet don't add much thickness to the gun at all. I ordered 2 sets this weekend for my 228 & 229.

Topgunsupply has them in stock and this is a great place to buy all things Sig: Hogue Rubber Grip Panels Sig P228/229 - Top Gun Supply

The panels I speak of came on my P220 ST and they are very comfortable...

Very wise to replace the factory plastic grips. If you crack the left grip panel it can cause the gun to stop functioning as the grip panel is all that holds the trigger return bar spring in. Really bad for a duty or defensive gun your relying on.

The hogue rubber panels are what's on my p220. The devolp a tackiness over time which is really good under sweaty hands but they don't bind on clothing or holster. Superb grip choice.

It's absolutely necessary to have spare grips on hand for exactly the reasons you mention. That's the reason I shied away for the surplus P6s that were originally available (about 4 years ago) very cheap. Nobody had spare grips...

A wise idea as the 239 in .40 needs something besides the factory grips. My 239 wears Hogue's and they work very well...

My P226 and BHP both wear Hogue wraparounds....fits me like a glove. A great $15 addition.

Midwayusa has them for $18 and change. I think I'll get them there and an extra magazine.

I recommend Mec-Gar mags for your Sig. They cost less than the Sig factory mags, and are as good...and often better than Sig's.

I've paid $15-20 less per mag (P226) on mags that I honestly consider "upgrades" over the facotory versions.

I prefer the Sig E² grip conversion on mine, since I have smaller hands.
