SIG Sauer P229 Capacity

In 9mm, the SIG P229 is sold with 10 or 15 round magazines while the .40S&W and .357SIG versions are sold with 10 or 13 round magazines.  Drum magazines are also available with a 50-round capacity.

SIG Sauer P229 Ergonomics

The SIG P229 has identical ergonomics to the SIG P226 with its only difference being the P229 has a shorter slide and barrel.  The full-size grip allows users to get a full grip on the pistol no matter how large their hands are.  The P229 has good control placement with the slide release and de-cocker over the grip and a magazine release placed at the junction of the grip and trigger guard.  The square-notch sights offer a clear and intuitive sight picture.

SIG Sauer P229 Fit & Finish

The P229, just like the rest of the P220 series of pistols, is extremely well built.  The finish on the frame and slide is extremely durable, though the finish around the barrel wears off rather quickly.  The long double-action trigger pull is very smooth with a 7 pound pull, while the single-action trigger pull has a short take-up with a smooth break.

SIG Sauer P229 Concealability

The SIG Sauer P229 has a compact slide and a full-sized grip.  With its 1.5 inch width, this pistol would be very difficult to properly conceal without a shoulder holster or thicker attire.
