Is the sig 229 and 226, the same width in the lower? basically I know the 226 is longer than the 229, but are the grips the same size? I like my 229, and am thinking of buying a 226 off of the for sale section, it comes with two sets of grips, so if the pistol is the same size I figure between the two sets I'll like one.

No, the grips are not the same size, the 226 grips are longer as is the frame.

As for width, yes.

What grips does the 4 sale one come with?

Here is my 226 and 229 back to back. The 226 has Crimson Trace grips.

The first pick is the original 226 grip panel next to the 229.

Both double stack magazines = same width of grip.
Thats what I thought, but every 226 I pick up around here feels thicker. Just verifying with someone that has one of each and can look at them.

The grip panels for both are the same width.
