The addition of an accessory rail distinguished our P229R-9 from the P229. The frame, which was imported from germany, was cut with three grooves to accommodate a variety of different gadgets, such as tactical lights or a laser.
Our first impression of the P229R-9 was how round the grip felt in our hands. Some shooters may prefer a more rectangular profile that offers more feedback. The presence of a flat surface or subtle corner placed somewhere along the grip surface may make this gun point faster.
