Sig Sauer P229
The Sig Sauer has run its SIG P series for a while now, but one of SIG pistol fans’ most recognized as the best is the Sig Sauer P229. Reviewers claim that the P229 builds on the compact P228 9mm, but the almost four-inch-barrel makes it stand out as a full-size pistol. It also comes with satisfying features like a smooth double-action trigger and handy de-cocking lever. Our Sig Sauer P229 holsters for concealed carry are ideal for these pistols.
SIG fans know that the P220 started the P Series off with a bang; with the P220 as the predecessor, the P229 has only made the P series better. The reliability and the excellent accuracy remains. The smooth double-action SRT trigger has an approximate 10lbs pull, with a single-action at around 4.4lbs pull. To safely lower the hammer, the de-cocker lever is positioned with easy thumb reach, forward of the left grip and above the magazine release.
The P229 was release in 1992, designed with a hefty stainless steel slide to help control recoil. When released, SIG wanted the P229 to provide both concealability and a great service pistol. They have succeeded—I’m sure you can affirm that with a quick search of P229 reviews and how easy it can be to find a holster for the Sig P229.
P229’s of 2017-18 come with SIGLITE Night sights, but are still combat ready—providing quick engagement and follow-up shots. They also come with two 15-round capacity magazines for 9mm models. The grips are black polymer with a tactical texture for a good, secure hold. The P229 also has front cocking serrations, and a PVD coated slide and frame (if you check online you can find it both sand/tan and black).
The P229 has a SIG accessory rail to add your favorite light and laser combination. Other features include the SIG lockup (the barrel hood butts into the ejection port), and a one-year SIG warranty. Be sure to browse our Sig 229 Kydex holsters above.
