    In 2014 I won an Enhanced Elite P229 in 9MM on Gunbroker for $606.50 (includes the $15.00 shipping); I was able to use a $200 gift card I got when I bought my USP45 Tactical. -- I knew something wasn't so great when I unboxed it at my FFL -- The Sig box was missing one of the silver slide latches. as I started inspecting the gun, noticed the adjustable rear night sight was a standard dead night sight. -- Noticed the frame and slide had a lot of dings and scratches, if I looked at the ad picture I should have noticed the wear and wrong sight. the barrel had a lot of wear, so did the locking block -- The Sig Branded metal Hogue grips were well worn. -- Surjimmy can attest to how worn they were! all of the defects were noticeable if I would have looked closer at the ad pictures. The one thing that bothered me the most was the stripped grip screw. I kinda figured it was maybe a range gun, from all the use and abuse.

    Talk about a tack driver -- of all the bad things, It shot outstanding and the price I got it for was better than the $1100 that it was retailing for.

    Fast forward -- I picked up a used Sig .22 conversion kit, and installed an E2 grip. This is one of my favorite and accurate .22's.

    I am always toying with the idea to cleaning the P229 up -- I still have a lot of fun, when I take it shooting! I think I will keep it like it is !!!!

    Natural lighting against a semi dark background. The cloudier the better. That looks sharp!

    I hope you like it as much as I like mine. Great pistols. I dig those grips on yours too.

    @rockchalk06; I’m curious about the P224 slide stop lever...why? Is it just because it’s smaller? I don’t use it as a slide release normally anyway, so what’s the advantage to it over the stock slide stop lever?

    Additionally, there’s not a whole lot of mods that can be done to this pistol, grips, maybe a GG fat guide rod, different trigger, different sights if you really see the need or just have a preference ... stuff like the SS lever...it’s pretty well set up out of the box.

    I'm notorious for riding the slide stop on my M11-A1. Unless I focused on it, I would ride it and not let the lock back on an empty mag. P224 slide stop lever is smaller and I don't ride it. I don't use it a slide release either, so I didn't mind going smaller.

    I put skinny grips and a Gray guns trigger. Small hands, so I needed to fit it to me better.

    I LOVE Sigs. My brother has a 229 and he loves his. I’ve had many sigs.....currently have a 226 and it is by far my favorite gun of all time.
