An ideal concealed carry or back-up gun, the P224 is an especially good choice for those familiar with the SIG SAUER manual of arms. From the full-sized P226® to the P229 to the P224, the controls and operation all remain the same. Full-size SIGLITE® Night Sights are the standard in the Nitron® coated slide and allow the P224 to deliver pinpoint accuracy, which can be a challenge in most subcompacts.
Despite its small size, the P224 maintains a double-stack magazine for a capacity of 10 rounds of .40S&W giving the P224 a decided advantage over most subcompact competitors. Newer model P229 magazines can also be used for an even greater round count and permit users to carry a full-size spare magazine as a backup to the flush-fit P224 magazine.
This Anti-Snag (SAS) model features a de-horned slide and frame, and the new ergonomically enhanced one-piece grip. Additionally, a short-reset trigger (SRT) is present in this DA/SA version. The P229 has proven to be a standout performer and is carried by numerous federal, state, and local agencies.
