I bought them here in germany.
Sig came out and offered the conversion grip for older Sig P226 and P229`s. In the US they only seem to sell to LEO`s, but Sig also had an offer running for $99,- for the kit including installation.

The shop I bought the kit from, also sells internationally, but there is a cusoms fee of € 70,- to the normal shipping costs.

The E² grip kit ist fairly simple. A new hammer strut and hammer strut seat, aswell as a new decocking lever ist supplied with the grip. If you have the ol style hammer strut with the long hammer spring, you have to buy a new hammer spring aswell.
Installation is about 15 to 20 mins and pretty easy. I made up a manual with pictures, how to install the kit.

Accordign to the shop I bought the kit from, a dealer in Texas shold also have the kits. But you won`t find them on the webshop. You have to cann them and ask, if they have them.
We are the leading distributor of SIG P210,Hammerli pistols, grips and accessori - Roco FirearmTechnology, LLC

All in all, if you have smaller hands and tehrefor slight problems gripping the double stack P226/P229`s, the E² grip is a very nice alternative.

Here ist the manual:

The Hogue panels came in today and I already put a set on my 228 - they're about perfect. Not much thicker than the factory plastic grips but they feel 1000% better in the hand. Highly recommend these for anyone searching for something less slippery than the stock grips while not increasing the grip size by much...

I buy 98% of my mags at CDNN. If they don't have them my 2nd choice (and for all things Sig) is Topgunsupply.com...

I browsed around just out of curiousity...and it doesn't appear P239 mags are sold under the MecGar name. Truth be told, the Sig-labeled P239 mags are almost certainly made by MecGar.

Anyway, just something for folks to keep in mind. Be it BHP, Beretta M9, or various Sig or CZ models, MecGar always offers at least equal quality (to factory name) mags at a savings of what seems like 40%. This applies to pretty much every mag they make, save 1911's.

Yeah, I couldn't find anything but Sig 239 mags. I did find some for $31 though.

As an update, I put the Hogue grips panels on both my P228 and P229 and I shot the P229 last night at the action shoot. I am extremely pleased with these grip panels as they provide a nice grip and good feel but are not nearly as bulky as the wrap around variety. I highly recommend these if you're looking for something better than the stock plastic grips...
