Brief info on the SIG P229
The SIG P229 is a pistol designed and manufactured by Swiss Arms AG (formerly SIG Arms AG and Sauer & Sohn). It is chambered in .40 S&W, and .357 SIG with a 12 round magazine and also in 9mm Parabellum with a 13 round magazine. The SIG-Sauer P229 pistol was introduced to serve as a compact version of the P226 that could handle the higher velocity .357 SIG and .40 S&W rounds.
The previous P228 was chambered only in 9mm Parabellum, and had a lighter weight forged and stamped carbon steel slide that could only take the higher pressure and heavier bolt thrust of the .357 SIG and .40 S&W rounds if an overly heavy recoil spring were installed. The newer P229 used a heavier CNC machined stainless steel slide that could take the high velocity return with a standard spring and not damage the pistol. The SIG P229 chambered in .40 S&W is the standard issue pistol of Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard, and P229s in .357 SIG are the standard side arm of the U.S. Secret Service, and are commonly used by police departments around the country, including Federal Air Marshals and I.C.E.
Even though the 229 is worn openly by many uniformed officers, it is still sufficiently compact to be worn concealed by an undercover officer or dedicated civilian. The SIG 229 has a very comfortable grip and a satisfying feel in the hand. The fit, finish, and level of workmanship are all first-rate. There is nothing loose or sloppy. This is a solid gun which inspires confidence.
When the P229 was expanded to offer the 9x19mm as a standard caliber, that marked the end of the standard production life of the older P228.
Last but not least is the .357
SIG Cartridge. This cartridge is a .40 S&W
necked down to .357. It was jointly developed by SIG Sauer and Federal for those
law enforcement agencies who wanted to switch to an autoloader, but wanted to
retain the legendary performance of the .357 Magnum 125 grain JHP load. The .357
SIG duplicates the .357 Mag. velocity of 1350 fps, making it a potent performer.
With 13 rounds on tap, a P229 in .357 SIG is a great choice for law enforcement
or anyone who wants a high-velocity, powerful handgun. The Secret Service and
Federal Air Marshal Service use this cartridge, as do the Delaware State Police.
