    So my g/f was looking at a range gun and rented the Sig mosquito last week. She liked it, it shot well, and was around $320 for a new one.

    So I was doing some research and my dealer couldn't get the mosquito right now, but he could get the p229 classic 22 for $425 :confused: First I have heard of it, and in research, it looks to be the way to go here for overall versatility.


    The .40 and 9mm uppers are around $325 through my dealer.

    Anyone have any personal experience with the classic 22 series specifically?

    I am trying to get her to get the STI guardian in 9mm, but she's hesitant to spend a grand on a gun. Although, she shot ragged holes with a 9mm trojan @25ft last night. :what:

    The 229, 226, and 220, all have .22 conversions available for them. Or, you can buy a 229, 226, or 220 frame with a .22 conversion on it, and then at a later date, buy the slide/barrel in the caliber you want.

    Kind of like buying a .22 conversion, in reverse.

    For what it's worth, I got the .22 conversion for my 226, and i like it very much. Once I got past a couple hundred round break in period, it has been very reliable with CCI, Federal Target Grade, and American Standard ammo. The only complaint I have heard, is that the slide will not lock back on the last round. But since I can count to 10 it hasn't been a big problem.
