Default Adding new Sig to collection..which one??

Looking to add another Sig to the bunch. I have a P226 in 9mm. Best DA/SA in 9mm next to my Italian 92FS
Looking to change things up a bit.
I love the 1911 which is all time favorite platform. But I was looking for something to add for HD and CCW along with my P7M8
Some thoughts?

not long ago; there was a thread here regarding the P226 german.


further off topic; Top Gun Supply has in stock... german made P229R 9mm pistols. they come with solid standard trigger, german proof marks, triple serial numbers, metal guide rod and night sights. they will swap out the 2 magazines for 10 rounders. price is $799.95.

a german made P229R is a hardcore prize for many, and for some probably not.

One of my local gun stores had one of the "diamond plate" specials. It actually didn't look as bad in person as the pictures on the Sig web site.

To the OP: Why .357 Sig? Just because it's a "Sig" cartridge? With the price of ammo these days, the last thing I want is more calibers.

Since you already have a P229, I'd go with a different style and choose the P239 DA/SA in .357 SIG.

I love my sp2022 I replaced my p226 with it for HD, only cause I'm a better shot with it(p226 is my most favorite still)

But since you love 1911s and like sigs, there are compact sig1911s.

.357 apparently penetrates better through armor an it has a tumble effect as well because of the bottle neck casing and longer bullet. Might be wrong, but secret service uses it.

P228 or a p210 legend. Can't go wrong with any sig! I voted for the p229 DA/SA in .357sig due to its beauty, ergo, and great performing round

The only SIG I'd buy is a German made one. I'd actually like one of those German 226's.

Since my choice is not listed in the poll and that you said you liked the 1911 platform. I vote for P220.

P225 or P228. Why not a 1911 for concealed carry? They're great for that.

229 SA/DA in .40 gets my vote.

I love my p226 in that configuration

I voted for p229 DA/SA in .40 because it's interchangeable as you know and because .40 cal is cheaper to shoot and because I'm not sold on sig's DAK.

I don't get the point either, wouldnt most carry it in DA anyways? After the first one shot, I'd much prefer SA.

I know you can convert sp2022 to SAO or DAO, it's possible that p229 can do the same.

I think the Sig P229 SAS in 40 cal DA/SA is what I will get. I can use the 40 cal magazine for 357 sig and all I have to do is swap out the barrel and spring.
I just wish the P229 was made in Germany.

You can buy the .357 Sig, .40 S&W, or .22LR kits for about $300. You get a complete slide setup and a magazine with the barrel. My brother has the P226 in .40S&W with a spare 9mm setup, and he shoots the heck out of the 9mm for fun, and trains and uses the .40S&W for carry. It's a good investment unless you want to throw down for a whole new gun.

For my money, I'd buy another Sig 1911. You get a lot for the money and they are tack drivers off the shelf.

What's your location there's a home based FFL in Victorville that has great prices on Sig's. You know the P229 as I recall was the first Sig made in the states correct me if I'm wrong.

you are correct. a few writers were shown the prototype P229 in the 1991 Shot Show. in 1992 the gun was introduced in the Sig Quarterly's winter edition and was included in the catalog of handguns. in the feature article it was mentioned that the P229 was the first American made Sig.

When you talk about adding another SIG to the bunch, does that mean you already have a bunch of SIGs, or a have a bunch of handguns to which you're looking to ad a 2nd SIG on top of your 9MM P226?

There's no question in my mind that the P229 is probably the most versatile in terms of handling home defense and concealed carry duties, although some find it a little to wide in the back end for carry.

As to DAK or not to DAK, in my experience it's a love it or hate it proposition. I'm in the love it camp, and have a P229R DAK (357SIG) and a P220R Carry I converted to DAK. But that's totally a matter of personal preference.

FWIW, a P228 (if you can find one in great shape) is an awesome pistol, and maybe the best SIG (aside from the P210) ever made. Excellent balance, superb accuracy, and all that old school German Proof Marked goodness. Of course they no longer make them, but they can still be found.

i would choose an early production w german P228 for myself. i almost suggested the P228, but it appears the OP is intent on not purchasing a 9mm Sig at this time.
