I mention this as many, myself included, have a preference for the earlier guns - up to about the mid-'00's. SIG was at the top of their game, and cost saving steps under Cohen hadn't kicked in. These guns will have no rail . . . which I think came out around 2005 IIRC.

If you want a 40 with no rail, this is still a good time to find one, even though used prices apper to have increased about $100 in the last couple of years. The LEO going to 9mm, had a glut on the market for some time. Prices for nice ones in DA/SA will now be 5 to 6 hundred with the occasional smoking good deal. DAK versions are $100 less, and unless you want DAK, skip those.

To the cost of the gun you might add $50 for short reset kit, if you want (I like it) and maybe new sights. When you're done, you'll have an irreplacable keeper. Here's one I got recently for $625 (out the door) in satin nickel - I added the SRT kit and did several bumper mods.

With apologies as I've posted this before - guess I need to take more photos

That is the second time I have seen that photo of that gorgeous pistol, and it is causing me to have seriously impure thoughts.

Life is short and there are no promises for tomorrow. Purchase what you want so long as it doesn't put you in the poor house.

I've shot the gun a lot and from all the reading I've done, I know that even this great trigger can be improved upon. But ........ Danged if I can figure out if I need it!
That is what hit me instantly. I was in my LGS the other day picking up some powder for my .223 loads. I took it up and set it on the counter, and made the mistake of going to the gun counter. As I was looking at a couple others, the boy behind the counter handed me a 229 in 9mm, the minute I had it in my hand I knew it was for me.

A Legion will soon be my EDC as long as I find the right holster and see how it conceals.

I was truly struck by how it felt in my hand, and the feel of the trigger was, well, perfect IMO. Not to mention it was purdy!
