    Bought the gun about 18 months ago, and I still own it. Unusual for me, but the 229 is a definite keeper. My other two autos are my Glock 45 and Sig Sauer M17. IMHO the P229 is one of Sig's best. So easy to shoot well. unnamed.jpg

    I had an interesting project with a P229. I bought one last year as a winter time project. I have to admit that the pistol was in sad shape. Over a few months I replaced all springs and pins, and it got a new hammer. Later I noticed a ding in the crown of the barrel, facilitating a barrel replacement. The sights, long since day light only, got replaced with Dawsons.

    That gun runs like a fat boy after an ice cream truck now. I so see the appeal of Sigs.

    I bought a new P229 in 40 when they came out in the '90s. A brutally accurate gun with little recoil!

    That is now the TALO classic P229 that comes with SRT. So good it just couldn't be discontinued.:D I purchased one of those not too long ago and I'm not sure why Sig would discontinue something like that.....but they did. It doesn't even use the same mags as the P-229-2.

    I've got a P229 Legion in 9mm that's been outstanding for the two and a half years and round count of which I've lost count at this point. It was carried for a decent stretch, but ultimately, I opted for something a littler more svelte and lightweight (Walther P99) as there were frequently times where I would leave the gun behind rather than carry it due to its size and weight in comparison to what I often have to wear for work.

    I found a used P229 Legion a little while back and it has been my EDC ever since. It has a bit of holster wear on the slide, and some deformation on the rail from a WML, but that only means I won't need to be too careful to keep it pristine and stuck in a safe for preservation. My DA pull still needs work but in SA it's a tack driver.
