How do you guys like the Sig P226 Elite Stainless?

Good gun? Any negatives I should know about? Its pretty freaking expensive so I'd like to know everything I can about it before I buy. Decided to choose this over the CZ 75B because I can't get over how cool it looks.

I love mine. Mine's .40 S&W, and the weight tames the recoil of that round. It's a keeper, but I agree, heavy for carry.

My favorite handgun ever,right next to my X5 competition!
+ Trigger,feel,quality,looks.
- None (Bit heavy compared to my P226 Extreme & P226 Navy)

I own 6 P226's (two Stainless Elite)
The P226 Elite stainless is an amazing piece!

Its not so heavy that I'd get tired after a day at the range with it, would I? Maybe 2-3 hours? I'm pretty strong and lift often if that helps (not bragging, I swear! ) at all.

It weighs about half a pound more than the Elite Dark (obviously due to having a stainless steel frame instead of alloy). I'm not sure how much a difference that would make on the range after a long day of shooting.

However, it's definitely a beautiful gun.

Just might be my next Sig. I carry heavy (Beretta 96A1, 40 cal) and prefer it that way. I love the combination of the stainless and the rosewood grips. I also like the 40 caliber round, maybe even better than the 45. Although that could be that I've fired almost 3000 rounds of 40 and only around 400 of 45.
