Introduction and New P229 Elite Dark pics....
Just wanted to introduce myself. I am new to Sigs for some reason but have owned just about everything else over the years. I am a hardcore bowhunter as well as pistol/gun hunter. I was one of the first to IPSC (limited gun)compete years ago with the 10mm and still shoot IDPA on occasion with a 45acp.
I was sooooo tired of all my polymer pistols not having a good trigger and quality feel. My USP compacts are not bad but there still was something missing. Yea, I shoot them good but the feedback leaves me liking the guns but never loving the guns.....Enter the Sig Sauer. For no reason I have never owned a Sig but that all changed. After doing a lot of searcher, I ordered a P229 Elite Dark in 40s&w. Hands down, the P229 is the most accurate double stack handgun I have ever shot (and thats a lot of guns). It rivals my custom 45acp in accuracy. The 40s&w feel like 9mm in this platform. The Sig aluminum grips are perfect and the gun melts into my hand. The gun needs nothing. It swallows everything I can throw at it. PDx1, Critical Defense, Gold Dots, all shoot the same impact point and even Winchester white/red box prints sub 1" group at 10 yards. I am cutting one ragged hole with most every thing at 7yards. Double action or single action doesnt make a difference in my hands. At 25 yards I can easily take head shots. I have been to Gunsite 2 times and my next visit the P229 is going to be my primary. I cant believe I waited this long to buy a Sig......????
Here is some P229 Elite Dark porn....
I had adjustable sights like these on my HK USP. I love being able to do quick adjustment. Key is blue loctite on the dovetail threads when you are done and they will never move. I one hand rack the slide with them and never a issue.

I am going to buy the Sig 9mm Exchange kit and a suppressor as well. I am also going to be selling 2 of my spare Glocks. Where is everyone getting their Sig spare magazines, parts, etc..??
A couple of Sig related questions.
What does the number on the silver paper band around the grip stand for?? It doesn't see to correlate to the serial number or production date.
Does Sig test fire all their guns and what does the inspectors that has his signature on the tag do??
I would love to know some factory production info and testing specs but I can't find anything so far??
I did see on the plastic case my gun was made in May on a Wednesday 2012.

I am 30 miles north east of State College at the mouth of the Pine Creek Valley. Very close to Williamsport home of the Little League World Series that is starting this week.
