I think you may be a little loco, Johnny. I do wonder, however, why the gun didn't sell well. If you'd be so kind.

It's a good gun, I have several thousands of rounds through mine already. Do you have one?

It didn't sell well probably because it was priced out of the range of the subcompact pistol market, probably didn't have a lot of LE takers either because of the weight. Otherwise, it's a great primary concealed carry gun because it shoots fantastically and is otherwise pretty compact.

You done good, the P224 is a fine weapon. I sure do love my P224 9mm SAS, still my favorite shooting SIG.

As I read this GCBHM, you were the one that posted the absolute statement as to the reason for the P224 discontinuance. JL simply offered the OP an opinion, based on actual P224 ownership, about his purchase.

I don't think JL is really "loco", he just has an interesting handle. No need to disparage his mental condition.

We've got the 224 SAS 9mm and also the 224 Extreme 9mm. Both have been flawless and never have had any issues.

Sure, there were some that had issues, but from what I hear, a trip back to Sig and they were rectified.

Enjoy!

I'm also a fan of the 224-9, enough to have it RMR'd. I've never had any problems.

I never look at buying a firearm as a mistake. If you have the disposable cash and the gumption to buy, all of these purchases are just varying degrees of success.

This seems like an odd choice for that application.

I have a P224 SAS DA/SA in .40. My favorite gun, I'd like to have a couple more. Like previously mentioned, the extended mag is a great feature. Again, my favorite gun and I have many Sigs!

Having older eyes, it seemed to be the most reasonable scenario where I would be able to aim without having to put my readers on before being able to draw. As some of us advance in years being able to extend the our arms out far enough to see the front sights becomes quite the challenge.

I never heard of any reliability issues, and I had two 224's. I can't speak for anyone else, but I sold both of mine because They were too much like 229's, and I just liked the 229 better. I thought the sleeve for the full sized mags was junk too. Overall, it just seemed like an odd duck...

Good experiences with P224

I have 2 P224s in 40S&W and 9MM. Have about a 1000 rounds through the 9mm with no problems. Fewer rounds with the 40S&W, but no problems. I really like these guns with/without the extended mags. I did add finger extensions to the standard mags and that works for me. Good luck.

While my arms are still long enough, I understand the benefits of the RMR. I just felt that adding the bulk of it to a subcompact pistol was counter-intuitive.
