P229 MIL

October 9th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

We are expecting a very small shipment of new P229 pistols – the model is E29R-40-MIL-TG (the pistol is chambered in .40 S&W). We don’t yet have photos but the pistol is a P229 and it would appear it is a contract overrun. Strangely the TG in the part number stands for tan grips but the pistol will ship with E2 grips.

This is the first German frame with a mil-spec 1913 rail. The pistol has night sights, a standard trigger, E2 grips, M1913 rail, beavertail, full height rear serrations, and a DLC coated frame and barrel.

We will post photos and additional information as it becomes available. There will be an estimated 240 units available throughout the United States in total.

Update 10-17-12 – we’ve got photos available below

    Beautiful firearm! I purchased one of these from my local gun shop because of the features, quality and safety. This reminded me of a Kimber or a small .45 cal pistol. Presently, I have about 20 rounds through this firearm and it shoots great. However, since this pistol is “MIL Spec” with the 1913 rail there are no hard plasic / kydex holsters on the market; period. I have purchased many holsters online only to return them. Finally I purchased a number “15” Blackhawk nylon paddle holster so I can at least CCW.

    I also bought one and it shoots amazing. I have also ran into the same problems with finding a plastic retention type holster for it. In have also sent ones back that sites have told me will fit it. Its the Mil Spec 1913 rail. I will check into the “15” Blackhawk nylon

    Well I found a company that has made me a custom Kydex Holster for this wonderful pistol. Check out Garrett Industries Custom Kydex Holsters. I just received mine today. The “Silent Thunder STX 2.0″ for my Sig E29R-40-Mil with the 1913 rail. Very nice with a thin leather lining and fits very snug. It was on the high side for price but they custom made it to fit. I couldn’t find anyone else that would do it. If you order one just mention the specific model and the fact that the slide is 1.6 inches wide vs the standard 1.5 in and it has the Mil-Spec 1913 rail. I told them what I needed and 2 1/2 weeks later it was here. They even gave me a 15% military discount.
