EXETER, NH –-(AmmoLand.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc., the leading manufacturer of commercial, law enforcement, and military firearms, has introduced the E2 Enhanced Ergonomics versions of the benchmark P226 & P229 series of pistols.

The SIG SAUER E2 models provide improved handling for a wider range of shooters than ever before in two of the most popular SIG handgun platforms.

The E2 Enhanced Ergonomics P226 & P229 build on the successful components that have made the P226 & P229 the choice of armed professionals world-wide. The newly designed one-piece modular grip with improved texture reduces area in the back strap and overall circumference, providing a better fit over a wider range of hand sizes. The modular grip snaps securely in place eliminating the need for grip screws.

A lanyard loop is standard. E2 models feature the innovative Short Reset Trigger (SRT) system providing a 60% reduction in trigger reset. E2 models also include a reduced reach trigger, providing an even better fit for shooters with smaller hands. A redesigned decocking lever can be combined with an optional ergonomic slide catch lever for a reduced profile; ideal for high two-hand grip techniques.

Both models feature a frame machined from 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum with a black hard coat anodize finish, and integral accessory rail for tactical accessories. Slides are machined from a stainless steel billet and coated with a proprietary Nitron finish for long lasting durability and corrosion resistance.

The E2 version of the P229 adds even more features. Updated slide design replicates the classic look and feel of the P226 and P228 with a robust new external extractor that enhances reliability and durability. A new magazine design increases 9mm capacity to 15-rounds in a flush-fit profile – that’s two more rounds more than the standard P229, and the same capacity as the P226.

The E2 Enhanced Ergonomics P226 & P229 are currently available in 9mm with Nitron finish and SIGLITE Night Sights. Both models ship in a hard carry case with three 15-round magazines and have an MSRP of $1,149.00. For more information, log on to www.sigsauer.com.

I don't understand all the fuss about the E2's "rough" grips. I used to have an outdoorsman's hands and "regular" grips used to irritate me after a lot of firing, but now my hands are softer and less used to rough textures and I find these just fit in my hand with no irritation whatsoever. I have a smaller hand and the E2 just feels "right", even after a lot of use.


Why is it illegal in California? Will it ever be available in California?


I've seenfeedback on the new sig226e2 since may. Here we are in Nov., and I can't find one in 9mm. Tried from Gary to So. Bend and no luck. maybe I'll wait for a used one now, after the glamore wears off. Anyone in IND. know where to buy these " right "?


I got mine several days ago. I had several questions answered by the MFG. very well. This is a very fine weapon with good engineering and fit. The new grips are nice for a small hand like mine.

My concern about the SIG P226 E2 is the grip. Just how rough is it? What would my hand feel like after squeezing off 200 rd Saturday and 200rd Sunday?

Any other comments or observations on this pistol will be appreciated.
