Hogue Extreme Grips for P226

Howdy;

I am looking to help my wife out a bit - she has a West German P226 in 9mm and she feels she needs to get an thinner grip - I looked at the Hogue Extreme series and feel like it may be a good fit for her.

But, I need other opinions because at $100 for a set it is quite expensive to try to see if it helps.

Thoughts on those that have the grips on their guns?

They are "slightly" thinner, their overall benefit is a more solid grip. For sheer size reduction, the E2 grips, probably give the most reduction. Some feel that they can be a little rough though. Since several models use these as standard now, a trip to your LGS that carries Sig models surely will have at least one your wife can handle, and see if the E2s are to her liking. They run $68, and require some parts changes, with most included, except for the Trigger Bar Spring.

The alternative is one of the single stack DA/SA models, like the P239, or P225A1 which will have a smaller circumference to begin with.

Awesome will try to get that

I saw the E2 but I saw the recommendation that you have it installed by an armourer or a gunsmith.

I wanted just a simple change out.

Changing to an E2 does require some additional parts.

E2's are nice grips, but I prefer Hogue G10's. All my SIGs wear them.

I don't think they can be beat for grip and ergonomics.

My 226-9, Black/Gray Checkered. Replaced the E2, no additional parts needed.

Maybe if you live close to Sig Texas, and you have your wife sweet talk him, into letting her try gripping his 226 with G-10s, to see if they would help, could give you the answer you're seeking. I know Texas is a "Big State", but depending on where you live, there surely is someone close by with G-10s on a classic Sig double stack! Here are a couple of pictures I did for another member a few months back, showing "diameters" for P226s involving trigger reach. This was newer polymer 2 piece grips, and G-10s. Your original W. German checkered polymer grips may be a little larger, if your wife has a dressmakers tape, measure yours, and compare.

If your wife has a problem reaching the trigger, the short reach trigger, could be an asset, unless you already have one. If not they are about $30.

I have a 226 with the E2 grips and the standard trigger. My latest purchase was the 229 Extreme which came with the Hogue G10 grips and short reach trigger. I do have small hands, and, for what it is worth, I do prefer the grip/feel of the G10's. I also do very much prefer the short reach trigger. The short reach trigger may also make a difference for your wife.

OTS, I live near Round Rock and shoot regularly at Best of the West in Liberty Hill. Are you anywhere near this area?

Thanks for the offer SigTexas - I live in Waco so we are a fair piece away - I will try them and see - if she doesn't like them I guess I can put them on EBay.

Those look great!! I run the Extreme or E2's on just about all of my Sigs just because I love the way they feel and fit in my hands!
Enjoy!!

And welcome from Florida!
