Can anyone discuss the differences between the SP2022 and the P229R?

I already have the 2022 and now have a P229 enroute.

I am not worried or reliability or anything because I already have several and know how good they are. I am wondering about size differences, etc. between the two.

The main difference between the SP2022 and the P229 is the frame. The SP2022 has a polymer frame with different size inserts to change the grip size to fit your hand. The P229 has an alloy frame.

Agree with sigp229r. Also, you'll have more options with accessories with the 229.

The length of the barrel are the same, the real difference is weight and materials used.
You can go to the Sig Sauer website and they have the specs right there for you to compare.

The P229 pictured above is actually the older design (still amazing) The newer P229-1 has a new slide design and grip that makes it a bit thinner and easier to grip for smaller hands. I love my P229-1 and have carried it almost everyday since the day I bought it.
Also, look for the P229 .22lr exchange kit. It's a great accessory.

If you got a 229 in 40 a Bar-sto conversion barrel will get you a 357sig or 9mm. The mags run all three calibers. All I needed to run top notch was a 9mm recoil spring.
Sig has conversion slides to get the same versitality.
Enjoy
