I bought a couple of new Sigs, and I have a question
I bought a Sig P229R in .40 S&W Tac Pac with the holster, light/laser, and a couple of magazines.
I don't like the grip on the P229R (I've got very big hands and need all the grip I can get). So I bought a used one like on my 9mm to put on it. I'll keep the original and put it in the box.
I also bought a Sig M11a1 in 9mm.
I noticed that I can swap slides, barrels, and magazines. Not that I need to, but I was wondering if I did need to for some reason would there be any problem with doing that? Looks like everything would work fine. Am I missing anything?

I recently purchased a P229R. I didn't like the E2 grip either. I ordered a Hogue wrap around with finger grooves. Fits great now. I plan to shoot mine this week end.
No idea about swapping slides etc.

the frames are the same but a 229 slide is stronger to accept 357 sig and 40 cal
so basically you could turn your m11 a1 in a 40 cal non rail 229
or your m11 a1 into a non existant m11a1 with rail
but im not sure you could turn your m11 into a 40 cal it is a milled slide instead of the 228 stamped so its possible
why you want to do any of this sheer boredom

Didn't say I wanted to. I was just curious in that I tried it and the 9mm slide and barrel would fit on the P229 frame. And the 40mm slide and barrel would fit on the M11a1 frame.
I was just wondering in case I ever wanted to do some swapping around. I think I found my answer later elsewhere.

So I guess if the upper went bad in one, and the lower in the other one would go bad, I could do a swap in an emergency.
I can't foresee that happening. But was just interested in finding out.
