Will E2 Grips Fit Older P229?

Subject line pretty much says it all... will the E2-style grips work on an older, non-railed P229 frame from the early 2000 era? Are any modifications required if they will work?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes they will work. Depending on your mainspring assembly, you will either need the whole new assembly, or just the E2 seat and strut. I believe all parts are included if you buy the kit, and not just the grips.

Remove your grips and look and see which mainspring assembly you have. E2 grips require the middle assembly.

You may also need a different mainspring depending on which strut you have and the new style trigger bar spring with the coil if you don't already have it.

You might consider getting this kit as it is unlikely that you already have the E2 mainspring assembly.

Cool. Thanks for all the above info! Haven't had a chance to pull the grips yet, but will do so as soon as possible... hopefully this evening to see what I have to work with.

Pulled my Hogue G10 Piranhas off of it tonight to put the stock grips back on for now until I get E2 grips ordered, and yes, it does have the new style mainspring housing and strut already in place, so apparently all I need is the grip itself. The removal tool is nice but not necessary as I discovered when I had my P227; I didn't know it came with the tool until I had already removed the grips once or twice!

I didn't think the E2 grips would work with the new style mainspring housing and strut (top photo in bblr's post).

I wasn't paying attention; you are correct sir! I have the top-most housing and strut, whereas I need the middle E2-style. So I do need the whole kit after all.

Apparently I'm about to put my G10 Piranhas up for sale to fund the purchase of said kit, otherwise I won't be able to afford them in the foreseeable future! And here I thought I was going to be able to use those funds to repair the bridge on my bass guitar...

You technically only need the strut and seat--the spring is the same. However, it's probably easier to buy the whole kit.
