Need help deciding!!

So I came into some extra cash and after buying my sig pro 2022 .40 im interested in a new toy so my choices are...

P229 Enhanced Elite or P226 Elite

I love my sig and I figured that since this is a spontaneous event might as well make it a big one!

any help is appreciated

Healthy price tag on that elite but if you can afford the extra I would get the elite.

My choice ot the two mentioned would be the regular Elite, the Enhanced models make the trigger reach too short for me. You have to see what is best for your hands.

either in the stainless elite!

I really love the all stainless Sigs. I would love to get a 226ST soon.

The enhanced elite isn't full stainless. I'd personally go with the P226 Stainless Elite.

Yes p229 is compact and p226 is full sized. I own a p226r in 9mm and it's a thing of beauty. I JUST bought a p229 Enhanced Elite in .40, and I'm taking it to the range for the first time tonight. Just handling the p229 EE I must say if feels incredible and is beautiful looking.
I'll post a review after I shoot it tonight and let you know how it went and maybe help you decide.
Later

I would go for the P226... The P229 and the SP2022 are about the same size, so I would get something slightly bigger to see a difference in feel.

That's actually a good point. Now here's a range report on the P229 EE that might make you a little crazy. I just shot 150 rounds through mine and it is AWESOME!!!! Holy **** that gun shoots like a dream!
Truthfully you can't go wrong with either model, Sig Sauer makes great guns PERIOD.
If having variety is important to you then go with the 226, BUT the p229 is a heavier gun than your 2022 so shooting it feels a bit nicer, and the decocker feels way better on the 229 in my opinion.
Man I hope that helps but I might have just made your decision a bit harder.
Sorry

thanks for that clarification, if the size is like my SP2022 then I think the p229 is a good size for me, I have a standard size HK USP40 and it is kind of hard for me to grip properly for a quick grab and shoot training.

It has actually made my decision point towards the P229 a little bit more! and by "heavier", do you mean that its more top heavy so that muzzle flip is reduced less? and how is the recoil on it? any pic of the target and at what ranges?

by you telling me its a little bit heavier than my p2022 actually makes it more enticing also, the size seems to be perfect and now the weight is another good quality.

While the all stainless guns are nice they are a lot heavier. Not necessarily a bad thing, but a consideration.
