Our Assessment: Introduced in 1992, the P229 is an upgrade to the P228 being an identical compact firearm often used for duty or concealed carry purposes. Developed specifically for the US market and assembled with both German and US-made parts, the P229 features a heavier slide to tolerate more powerful rounds the P228 is incapable of. The standard version features a DA/SA trigger. This pistol is very clean, in about Fine-Plus condition and comes with the aforementioned hard case with three magazines and a manual.
