    Seems like a decent deal. The Elite grips are too thick for me and the beavertail doesnt really help anything. It pushes your hand down further. The SRT is nice though.

    I wouldve gotten a used P229 for $500-$500 and put on an SRT trigger.

    The mags alone are worth at least $150, you got a pretty good deal for an elite, as long as you don't mind the beavertail.

    It's not "bad". It just doesnt help anything since your hand is in the same place. Ive heard it helps when rapid shooting...
