My new “Just Cuz” gun

P229 Legion .40. The stars aligned or close enough anyway and I bought this gun because I wanted it. I don’t need it and not sure what if any role it will fill? Really happy with it on first impression and after a breakdown to wipe all the goop off and re-lube, I did some dry firing.... still impressed. Some practice with the DA trigger pull but the trigger pull is smoooooth....

No pics, never happened? I know y’all have seen this shooter before. “There are many like it but this one is mine”....

Very nice! Why did you choose .40:rather than 9mm?

Congratulations.

The only Legion I have is a P229 .40, and although I generally prefer the earlier classic Sigs I have to admit the Legion is a really nice gun.

Nice! As someone who recently purchased a classic carry P229 "Just Cuz" I can totally relate. I reason if women can have a bunch of different shoes that basically perform the same function then I'm entitled to the same for my firearms

One thing I really want to change out though is the slide stop lever with the smaller legion one. It's not an issue on the P226 but on my P229 I can't hardly help but touch the thing and it's causing my slide not to lock back on the last round.

I got a .357 Sig barrel for my P229 Legion .40 cal. Love the gun in either caliber, believe I'm liking the .357 Sig over the .40. I seem to shoot it better, has slightly less recoil and yes its louder. Outstanding gun in either caliber.

Nice. I had a 40 229 when they first came out. The only 40 I have now is my USPc, but I'll always have a 40 in the collection.

Very Nice!

Good choice on the 40 in the P229 it handles it well. I gave up on the 40 in polymer guns but in hammer fired guns it is great. You just need to get the 357 SIG barrel for it now.
