M11a1 or 229 sas

Im up in the air on what to buy next. Im looking for a double stack 9 for fun gun. It may find itself being rotated in as a carry once in a while but the 224 has pretty much owned that spot as of late. I love my 357 sig in 229 and enjoy shooting it however my cousin has the m11a1 and boy does it shoot nice. I found a army green on black for great price on gun broker. Ive decided this week im gonna get something. What would you guys go with if you had to pick.

Having owned both, my preference would be the M11-A1.

I like the newer style slide as I find it easier to manipulate.

If carry is not a priority then I'm not seeing how the SAS option has any value for you.

I would (and did) chose the M11-A1. You have already said that you like the way it shoots.

If you already have the 229 SAS 357, then you gain nothing by getting another. You could buy a barrel, spring, and mags and convert whenever you want to, but that's about $300.

The M11A1 would be my choice. But the price on them has ballooned in the past year. Seems like they went up $150 or more.

I'm afraid I'd choose the M11A1, not because I have one, but because if it's not for your primary carry, why bother with the SAS. There isn't much difference generally except the SAS is more of a "Custom Shop" offering... and a little pricier...

Unless you find a deal like this...

If i go with the 229 it would have to be an sas. All my sigs are sas and every holster i own is for a non rail model. With the possibility of it being loaded with some lehigh max expansion and riding my hip im not looking to buy another ms or tt gunleather holster for a what if moment in future. I really did enjoy the m11 and a little green will break up the solid black look in my collection. It looks pretty favorable to finish off my safe with the m11 and beretta 1301 comp shotgun this month.

Both are very nice. One thing I really like about the SAS is the fact that it has rounded edges. It looks sleek and feels good to me, but the M11 is also a fine selection as well. I think if it were me I'd be inclined to buy one now, and then get the other later. LOL! Sorry...this is a very difficult choice.

Consensus seems to be the M11A1 and that's my choice too. Now, it's up to you. Send pics when you get it.

I have an M11A1 and it is a fine shooter. But my first choice would have been a 229 SAS in 357 SIG but it was not available. I could have run 9mm with a conversion barrel but with the M11A1 I have to use a CALX kit in 357 to get that multi-caliber capability.

Otherwise I don't see much meaningful difference between the two models; both are 229's and what could be wrong with that.
