Thin grips

Who makes the thinest grips for a 229? I don't like how thick my factory grips feel.

I was looking at the E2 grips but I here a lot of people don't like them.

Thanks

Peace

The factory plastic grips are actually thinner than most of the aftermarket grips out there. However, I believe that Hogue makes an Aluminum Grip that is slightly thinner than the factory plastic grips.

What about the E2 grips? They look thinner by design.

From what I've heard, they are thinner and feel quite nice. I did not mention them because in your OP, you mentioned that alot of people seem to not like them. I went to 3 local shops and none of them have any E2 Sigs in stock, so I cannot comment on the E2 grips either. Your best bet would be to get your hands on a Sig with the E2 grips and judge for yourself. The E2 kit can be purchased from various vendors for ~$50 + shipping.

I have E2's on my new 226. I didn't order it that way, but that's what I got. The SRT and "reduced reach trigger" came as part of the "E2 Package". Plus "much more" (according to their website) whatever that was supposed to be. Didn't even get a danged sticker....

I like them, though I haven't gripped another 226 with standard grips for a few months. I picked one up at the last gun show I went to. Too long ago to make a solid comaprison though.

I do not have huge hands - I wear Cadet medium/large golf gloves if that helps - and the gun does not feel too big. I have big palms and short fingers. My buddy shot it recently and he is a big boy. He said it felt fine, and he set down a Glock 32 to shoot mine.

The e2 grips are much thinner than the Hogue g10 or aluminum grips. The order of grip size from largest to smallest

Nill > Stock Sig Grips > Hogue Aluminum/G10 > E2

jc, thanks for showing the progression of grips.

I think I'll skip the factory option (mine came with hogue rubber) and go straight to the g10's.
