SIG has updated the P226 and P229 line and added new E2 ( e-squared ) Enhanced Ergonomics models.

The E2 Enhanced Ergonomics P226 & P229 build on the successful components that have made the P226 & P229 the choice of armed professionals world-wide. The newly designed one-piece modular grip with improved texture reduces area in the back strap and overall circumference, providing a better fit over a wider range of hand sizes.

The E2 P226 and P229 are available in 9mm Luger/Parabellium, with Nitron finish and night sights. Both have a MSRP of $1149.

    I just purchased my third Sig, a 226 in .40 Smith with the new grip. The other two(a 228 and an earlier 226R in .40) had to go away after some personal mistakes/operator headspace and timing issues. I now know that those weapons shot fine, because I completely redid how I shoot with a little help from Big Brother, The Old Man, and a 1911 (a Colt thank you) and now I put a whole mag in the small box on a TQ-15 at 7yds with a fast enough rate of fire to get yelled at by the guys at a West Phoenix indoor range... I digress. My latest Sig is as fine a piece as my 1911, my previous Sigs (both German made), both of the Sigs my brother (He didn't want or need another one, but got it anyway) has had as duty weapons, and even my Dad's Kimber TLE II. I'm happy with my NH Sig in every way; fit, finish, feel, and performance. I am supremely confident that if the situation comes... I'll be more than ready to finish it with either my Sig or my Colt. Just my FNG $.02 worth.
