OK - I am already a SIG convert. I currently have a Nitron 226R SA/DA in 9mm. I just sold my Nitron 229R SA/DA in .40 to another forum member (as of this evening). I absolutely love both but prefer 9mm & .45 to .40. I have decided to replace the 229R with some version of a 220R. Here is where I need help. Hopefully I won't make a decision I later regret. That would only result in another Sig for sale on the forum in the near future. LOL. I want something a little fancier than the Nitron this time. I also think I want to stay with the same overall size of the 229R which would mean the 220R Carry models. I would like the option of concealing it if I wanted to. The regular 220R is only about a half inch longer but when I compare my 226R to the 229R there just "feels" to be much more of a size difference. If anyone knows at what yardage the extra half inch barrel length might be beneficial please share that info. What I mean is this - Would there be any advantage in overall accuracy potential at 25 yds? At 50 yds? Let's assume I stick with the 220R Carry. Further limited to SA/DA trigger, here is what is left. Nitron (no, already have one like this) Two-Tone (most likely at this time) Elite Nitron Elite Two-Tone Elite Stainless (no, too shiny) Equinox Here is the thing. Having not shot one, I don't know if I would like the Elite models enough to pay the premium. Same for the Equinox. If anyone has either of these please comment on the differences and if you think they are worth it. The Elites have the beavertail, the Short Reset Trigger, and the wood grips. I really don't like the look of the beavertail and not sure it would be good for concealed carry. I also don't love the wood grips on the Elite and Equinox models. I like the look of them, but don't really like the feel of them. The ones I have held felt fat and slick. The advantages of the plain old Two-Tone are price, no beavertail, and I can pick one up locally with 3 mags, instead of the normal 2.
