New P226 & P229 Enhanced Elite Models
We just received some information about another two new Sig Sauer pistols. These new models are called Enhanced Elite, specifically the P226 Enhanced Elite and P229 Enhanced Elite. The summary from Sig Sauer breaks them down:
The “Enhanced Elite” models thake the same features common to all Elite series pistols and combine them with the ergonomic one piece reduced reach grips used in our E2 pistols. Available in both P226 and the upgraded P229-1 (using the same slide configuration as the P229 E2), these pistols bring the advantages of the one piece modular grip to a wider audience.
- P226 or P229 chambered in .357SIG, .40S&W or 9mm
- P229 9mm magazine capacity is 15 rounds
- One piece reduced reach ergonomic grip with updated stippling pattern
- Beavertail frame with front strap checkering and accessory rail
- Slide features “Elite” engraving and front cocking serrations
- SRT Short Reset Trigger System
- SIGLITE Night Sights
- (2) magazines
The MSRP for both Enhanced Elite models is $1,200 and the model numbers will be:
- P226: E26R-9-ESE, E26R-40-ESE and E26R-357-ESE
- P229: E29R-9-ESE, E29R-40-ESE and E29R-357-ESE
These models are slated for a nearly immediate release. More detailed photos will follow soon.
