San Diego, Calif. –-( Every day, thousands of law enforcement officers and private citizens depend on SIG SAUER pistols for personal-defense.

None are more popular than the company’s P226 and P229 models. SIG SAUER set out to make these high-capacity pistols a better fit for shooters with average-sized and smaller hands.

These ergonomic makeovers are called E2 for “Enhanced Ergonomics.” American Handgunner contributing editor Dave Anderson put these slimmed-down pistols to the test in the pages of the Sept/Oct issue, hitting stands July 19, as well as on the web. The handguns gained more than one fan at the magazine.

“SIG's new E2 designs of the classic P226 and P229 models have turned these tough duty pistols into svelte, easily-handled fighting handguns,” said publisher Roy Huntington. “The new grip profile now fits a wider range of hands, and now smaller-stature shooters can enjoy the benefits of these superlative handguns from SIG.”

Anderson continues his evaluation on the magazine’s website, as he offers firearm enthusiasts an exclusive look at the pistols’ manufacturing process, compares them to the originals and much more in American Handgunner’s Web Blast video, available at
