M11-A1 vs 229 Extreme

First time posting. I bought a MK 25 and a M11-A1 recently. I shoot the M11 much better. I am therefor planning on selling the MK -25 and buying another M11 or a 229 Extreme. I am confused (which doesn't take much) as to whether the M11 is a 228 or a 229. I really like the M11, so does it make more sense to buy another one or to buy the 229 Extreme so that I would have rails in case I ever wanted to add a light?

As I understand it the M11 is a 228 on a 229 frame to carry more rounds.
I have a 229 and really like it. I'm sure you would love the Extreme and always want the rail if you past it up.
I do wish i'd held a 239 before I got the 229. The 239 just seems to feel so good to me.

I have an M11-A1 and as far as I can tell, its a 229. Stainless slide, long extractor, short reach, Short Reset trigger. It's a very nice pistol, but I think its all 229 except the grips which say 228. Comparing it to my 229 .40 cal, it seems pretty much identical.

Thanks for all of the input guys. I bought the additional M11-A1 and gave it to my daughter to take to college with her (to keep in her truck) as she can shoot it very well.

the m-11 won't take older 228 or 229/9 mags.
