    The first person with a CONUS mailing address to post that they can use these will get them. I acquired them second hand and believe they are Cocobolo, and they are in decent used condition but not perfect. They did not fit my particular gun due to an apparent design change in the P229 along the way. The area marked with Sharpie inside interfered on mine so wasn't able to use them. They may just require some fitting or modification to work properly, not 100% sure.

    Hi Phil - I have a Sig P229 Legion. How do you think these would look on that style? I wouldn't want to accept your gracious offering if they ended up looking strange. But of course, I guess I would just do the same and pay it forward by offering these back to the community for free.

    Thoughts?

    Well if you get those I would be interested in your legion grips if you decide to get rid of them.

    I sigmanx - I think that I'd hold onto the Legion grips because it's not really a Legion without the full marketing appeal on resale. That is, if I ever decided to sell it which would be unlikely. This is still one of my favorite shooters in my collection. I just changed the trigger to a flat faced trigger (similar to what's on the P226 SAO Legion, stock) and just from this small change, it made me like it even more. But, I'd keep you in mind for dibs, if... :)

    Addicts are on a higher level. I’ve been saying this for years. The nurses and orderlies still argue with me. Can someone please help me? These cuffs freakin hurt!

    Hi Gecko, I'm really not sure...maybe you can compare the inside of your existing grips with the photos to see if they would fit? My best guess, and it's only a guess, is that my gun is older and that these were likely made for a newer design. But, they were made before the Legion came out...

    You have first dibs, and you are welcome to try them and them pass them along if you don't like them. Just confirm here either way and send a PM with your mailing address if you want them.

    You are next in line if Gecko passes...

    Thank you for your offer. Since I’m not sure how they’d look and not sure if they’d fit given the model and age difference, please go ahead with the next person who’s interested.

    Thank you VERY much!
