Our Assessment: The P229 is a compact variant of the larger P226, itself a double stack magazine variant of the P220. Because of its compact size, relatively lightweight and large magazine capacity, the P229 is a favorite for duty and concealed carry purposes. This pistol has a nitron stainless steel slide and a matte black alloy frame with an attractive nickel finish on its controls and grip screws. It has a double-action-only trigger, providing the same pull every time. This pistol looks to have been used responsibly, leaving it in Fine condition. If you’re looking for a carry or home-defense pistol or if you are a Sig Sauer collector who hasn’t added a P229 to your collection, this is a pistol to bid on. Please see our photos and good luck!
