On the cusp of the Texas Firearms Festival, SIG SAUER (one of the main exhibitors) is announcing that they have sliced off the nose of their P229 handgun. Originally designed as a more concealed carry friendly version of the iconic P226 the gun was still a little big for some buyers, but the new version is about as small as you can get before you start falling into the “mouse gun” category. Press release after the jump . . .
NEWINGTON, N.H. (November 12, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., is now offering the P229® Carry chambered in .40 and .357SIG. These reduced-length pistols maintain the standard grip length and magazine capacity as the standard P229, but with a shortened slide and barrel length.
Available in Nitron® and SAS models, the P229 Carry features a non-railed alloy frame and durable Nitron finished slide. SIGLITE® Night Sights come standard. Black G-10 grips offer a stout grip, even when wet.
The 3.5˝ barrel makes the P229 Carry easy to draw from concealment or a duty rig. Ideal for inside the waistband (IWB) carry, the P229 Carry uses standard length, full capacity P229 magazines, making it a great back-up choice.
