P228 frankensig

I have a complete P228 slide and wanting to revive this old charm back from the dead. I am looking for a compatible frame. I've been looking for a while and now I am setting my ego aside and asking for help. Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It will fit directly onto a 228 frame of course, or the original 229 frame (which is the same thing as a 228 frame).

With a 228 locking insert, it will fit on the newer-style 229-1 frame.

It may be difficult to locate just a frame, and even if you do you will need to do an FFL transfer anyway. A complete 229 will be easier to find, and then you can sell the upper if you want.

Place a Want-To-Buy ad in the Classifieds and you will have better luck than posting in a really old thread. There are plenty of parts kits out there for reasonable amounts.
