That's too funny. I just purchased a 229 today also!!!
I wasn't looking for a Sig. I was planing on a Walther p99 in .40. But they had a 'used' 229 in .40. But it was never used, not a single round fired through it(on a consignment type thing.) Glad to hear you like it a lot after taking it to the range. I was kinda kicking myself for buying it without doing my usual research. I pick mine up tomorrow.
I don't know anything about Sigs but I think mine might be a few years old as it does not have a rail. But heck, its never been fired. Hope I like it as much as you do.
