    Well guys, I had posted a couple threads recently about trading my new M&P .40 with CT grips for either a like new polished stainless CZ75 or a like new SIG 229 without a rail. The concensus on both threads was to trade the M&P. Now I have a bigger problem on my hands.

    I am not attached the the M&P and don't mind letting it go. I have other polymer framed guns in the safe and didn't really need another when I bought the M&P. I have shot CZ's and SIGs before, although not these models, and liked them both. So, what would you go with and why?? I am going to head the my dealer tomorrow and send the FFL info to one of these guys. Just not sure which. Here is a pic of the CZ for trade. I don't have a pic of the SIG but we all know what a two tone 229 without a rail looks like. The CZ comes with the original grips along with the aluminum ones on the gun in the pic. Both guns are like new.

    If both are straight trades with no extra cash, The Sig. Better resale and in my opinion a better feel in the hand, not to mention better aftermarket bling.

    id go with the sig just cause it fits in my hand better than the cz. i've tried to like the cz cause its a great gun, but the way it handles feels kinda weird to me...but thats just me.

    The CZ would be a straight trade. Seems fair enough with the $85 aftermarket aluminum grips added to the deal.

    The SIG would require me to throw in $100 cash.

    SIG over CZ, I own both and prefer the fit, finish, sights and trigger on the P226 to the CZ 75. But both are fine pistols. but those aluminum grips have to go. Did that CZ belong to a pimp? It is my opinion that for the quality of fit and finish the CZ pistols run about $100 more than they should, pistol prices in general are a total Obama-nation. SIGs are worth every penny, nowdays CZs are over priced just because of popularity. But what you prefer, you are the only one who needs to be happy in this.

    CZ all the way. Have both. The Sig is worth a little more, but to me the CZ is superior in most every way.

    I picked the 229. I was going to be an M&P last year and ended up buying the SIG when it was time to buy.

    That is the one Lonestar. Damn that is purdy. I think I will go with the SIG. I think I would like to stay in .40 anyway. Thanks for the comments fellas.

    Right you are, not to mention triggers DA/SA with Sigs vs CZ's.. They are easy to make lighter, smoother, with the DA action by buying a Wolff main spring kit for them.

    Around 22 bucks, IIRC, and you get a 21lb, 20, 19,18, 17lb, 16lb so you can choose which lighter main spring DA pull you like best and find the one that will deliver, full time, their immediate benefits.. One of my P229/40's had such a long, hard, gritty, 24lb factory main spring pull to it, that I got the kit and put in 18lbs and it was wonderful, but I thought, 17lb mainspring could be better, and it was, and has been, thru 3000 flawless rounds.. Took me 5 mins to change them out.. Then added a splash of Eezox down into the works, hammer, sear, pins and it was like magic..

    500 flawless rounds is a must-test, to stick with whatever mainspring you choose for reliability..

    They either come with a long, top to bottom mainspring or a short main spring with a bottom plastic, aprox, 1" base, and, to verify, simply take off the grips and see.. and go from there.

    OMMV,

    Ps.. FTR, not my gun, as my 3 P229's (2-n/r 40's and 1 railed 9mm) are plain Jane's all black, but IF I saw one for sale like the above, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.. I'm sure the owner doesn't mind me keeping the picture "for reference".. lol
