    I posted a few weeks back about trying to decide what hand gun to get for my 21st B day. I was going for the Kimber 45 or the Sig P229 look like im going with SIG. I just dont know if I should get the P229r or the P229Equinox. What is the difference between the two other than the looks and $200 for the equinox

    I think the equinox has a different grip. The slide of the equinox looks awesome IMO, but if it were my money i'd get the 229r. They both have rails, so thats really the only extra featue that I would "need."

    The P229R is business, the Equinox is bling.

    I think the equinox has a different front sight as well (tritium fiber?)

    Get the cheaper one and spend the rest on something like leather, mags, ammo, night sights...the gun's the cheapest part of my setup.

    I decided to go with the Equinox figured that I only turn 21 once and want to get the once I liked most. My local gun shop said that I might be a month or two til they can get one in stock from the distributor : (.
