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. Stated on Sig’s website, “The Legion P229 is finished in a Cerakote® Elite Legion gray coating, custom G-10 grips with a Legion medallion, the new SIG SAUER Electro-Optics X-RAY high visibility day/night sights and will ship with three magazines. The P229 in DA/SA include a reduced and contoured Elite beavertail, which allows for a higher grip, but a reduced profile, thus eliminating printing. More aggressive front strap checkering and additional checkering under the trigger guard enhance the grip. An X-Five undercut has been applied to the trigger guard, allowing for a higher grip and greater control. Front cocking serrations provide greater purchase for cycling the action, clearing the firearm, or conducting press checks. The pistol is available in 9 mm and also features low profile decocking and slide catch levers to reduce the risk of snagging. An enhanced polished action with the SRT (Short-Reset Trigger) is augmented with a Grayguns, Inc. designed P-SAIT trigger. In addition, a solid steel guide rod adds weight where it matters most.” This pistol looks to have seen hardly any use, leaving it in Excellent 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!
