LOVE both my P229s; one in .40 S&W and one in the mighty .357 Sig. They are a tad heavy, but still carry quite nicely and shoot like a dream. I don't think you can go wrong with a Sig, as long as it isn't that 250... Lol!

Both of my SP2022's came in nice plastic Sig hard cases, other than that I completely agree with the above.
I bought a SP2022 because I did not own a 9mm. I found a stainless slide Sig with night sites for $419. I knew nothing of the 2022, but I didn't think I could go wrong with a Sig. I shot several hundred rounds through it, and just knew that it is a fantastic firearm. I sold off all of my Glocks, and bought another 2022 in .40. So the Glocks are gone, the 1911's are in the back of the safe, the .40 SP2022 in in my truck, and the 9mm is hidden but reachable for home defense. So far my favorite to shoot is the 9mm SP2022, and I shoot about 300 rounds a months. My EDC is a Sig P290, and I have started shooting this one more that I used too. Buying that first 2022 has turned me on to Sig, and since then I have bought 4 more Sigs.
Great guns.

Well there are compact Sigs not in the model that you're looking at getting but there is a tactical and compact P226 model but most are 9mm. Other than that I'd highly suggest looking at the Sig website for stats and also try all the available Sigs at your local range with your wife, rather than guessing.

P.s it will be used for conceal carry and self defense and also my wife will be shooting it some so which one would be better for that as well

The SP2022 in .40, is hard to beat. 12+1. I run Hornady Critical Defense 135-grain JHP. Hits like a .45. Speer Gold Dots are also a good option.

Both are great guns, but I personally think the price to value ratio for p2022 is better. Don't get me wrong, I love my p226, but the p2022 is just a great bang for the buck.

the 226 gives you a bit more options if you want to work on the trigger...And it's a bit thinner as well. Both are just great and you can't go wrong either way.
