Problem with e2 grips on legion?

New to the forums - New sig owner

I personally find the grips on my 229 legion to be a little large - wanting to switch out to the e2 grip. Will I encounter any problems using the e2 grip with the recessed legion controls? Called sig customer service and they SAY that it will be fine - differences in appearance between the two grips (and some posts i've read) suggest otherwise... Im hoping I wont have to dremel the e2 grip - I see there are topics regarding this but no one actually seems to have replaced the legion grips and then returned their experiences.

thanks for any help

You'll be disowned and burnt at the stake by the Legion people for that. And they insist you return your challenge coin pronto.

But i understand

It's sacrilege, but it works fine...Just buy the Change Kit and it's a breeze:

Here's a general installation video for the P Series...

When you finish, keep the Legion Grips in case you ever sell it...then 1,000 Hail Marys...

I pounded the stake in my back yard and there's a gasoline dosed stack of wood piled beneath it. Match in hand....

Congrats on your new Legion. I just ordered one myself. The E2 is definitely more comfortable for smaller hands, so I say go for it. You can always switch back if need be!

I only had the Legion for a week now and for me the grips are the BEST feature. I understand your need for different grips due to particular anatomy of your hands. For me when I think about changing the grips .....is like having married my wife for the most beautiful eyes and the ask her to wear contacts of a different color. Again, I just shared with the group my feeling about the G10 grips without intending in any way to deride the OPs serious dilemma.

Thank you everyone for the replies. I did end up getting a set of E2's for my legion. They feel great - and I used a dremel to alter the top so that they do not catch the slide release. My one problem is that they are just a tiny bit loose on the frame. I am working on this problem now.

I think it's a great idea, almost as good as selling me your Legion grips would be.

This is one of the things that keeps me from buying a Legion. I like to make mods to my guns to make them suit me. Sights, grip, trigger, springs, whatever makes the gun shoot better for me. To me the Legion is someone else's idea of what I should like.

Every gun for every man has a different experience. Do what makes you shoot better! Enjoy the Legion.

Did you get this worked out? I have been shooting a 226 with E-2 grips and it has been my favorite gun. My 229 Legion is fairly new and I am not yet comfortable with the Legion G-10s.

Make sure you'll have clearance at the top of the grip for the Legion's forward-facing slide lock tab (it extends back on other/regular P229's). May have to do a little grinding to make room for it.

But that's what happens when you try to park a Rolls Royce in a garage built for a Corlloa.




Just kiddin'....

Howdy,

I'd give the Legion grips some time. After ~200 rounds I LOVE them!

I was all set to swap out judging by just holding the 229 but at the range just amazing.

I have short fingers and the DA trigger is just out of perfect but SA beyond PERFECT!
