Same gun 2 models

P220 Carry Stainless Elite
P220 Stainless Elite
This model is a little longer sight radius about.5 in longer. Supposedly the same weight. Don't see how but it's in the book. I like both will only buy one. I already have the P229 Stainless Elite in 9mm. Love it especially the trigger. Sigs SRT is awesome just wish it were a .45 acp. Here it is below.
Any thoughts?

Good looking pistol! How much does it weigh?

If the weapons are the same width and weight then, from an EDC standpoint, I'd choose the slight longer barreled weapon.

Is your thinking the longer is easier to shoot for accuracy?

Yes. For me and many others, width, not length or weight, given a good belt, determines suitability for EDC.

Nice looking Elite. I bought the P220R 4.4" barrel W/Tac rail a few years ago. This was before the SRT was available. So I ordered the SRT parts for my model and installed them myself very easy to do with the help of you tube video. It saved a few bucks. It is a very accurate and dependable gun.

I like the way it looks but it is a little heavy for EDC for my taste.
