Just picked up my first Sig!! P224 SAS Custom

So I stopped by the local gun shop today with intentions of picking up a P226 .40 S&W. To my dismay, all of the P226's that they had on Saturday were gone today. The only Sig they had left in .40 caliber was a P224 SAS Custom.

As you can see on the right side of the barrel, this gun bears Sig Sauer gold label. The small ribbon that appears below the Sig Sauer label reads "Custom Shop". I'm not entirely sure what this label represents, but there are a few features on this gun that aren't found on the standard P224 SAS. Most noticeable amongst those differences is the presence of the decocker.

I am very excited to have this weapon. Unlike the P226, this weapon should work much better as a CC weapon than the P226 simply because of the size. The shorter, double-stacked magazine should aid in reducing the gun's imprint when tuck concealed.

Its hard not to be super excited (almost to the point of gloating) when you have a new Sig, but I just wanted to share some pics and info on my new piece considering how uncommon this particular model/customization is.

Why don't the other 224s have a decocker?

Great question. I was very surprised to find the absence of the decocker when looking over the other versions on the Sig site. Looking at mine, it just looks like it belongs there.

This is what the basic P224 looks like.

This is quite a find!
According to Sig's website, the DA/SA version with the decocker isn't available yet. It is supposed to be currently available in DAK (again, only according to their website).

Nice - I'm jealous.

Since it has the decocker I am assuming da/sa. I thought they were going dak for starters.

The shop that sold me this gun is a Sig premier dealer. Its difficult to tell how much of what comes out of a dealer's mouth is BS, but he claimed that its likely that only a handful of these guns are available at retail shops in the US.

The rarity was definitely not the motivator in purchasing this weapon. The size/features/caliber got this thing to the cash register for me.

There are four versions of the P224. One of them is DAK. As far as I can tell, the other three models are all DA/SA.

I really want this gun!
There's no decocker because the gun is DAK, right?

Its really tough to tell. According to the Sig Sauer website, the P224 is available as DA/SA and DAK in all four versions. If Smithcok is right, the photos online showing this gun without a decocker make sense. Why have a decocker on a DAK model?

Sorry, my original post was not clear:

The one that Prentice (lucky bastard!) picked up is assuredly a DA/SA one, and his dealer (IMO) is right that this is a rare find at this time.

This model being available (even in small quantities) now is exciting to see, because according to Sig's site, the DA/SA version would not be out for awhile.

Congratulations on what appears to be a fine gun. I'm thinking of picking one up myself some time later. Please give us a range report.

As has been mentioned before, the first P224 to come out were .40 DAKs, hence no decocker. From what I am hearing .40 DA/SAs are just now beginning to appear at dealers. I'm holding out for the 9mm DA/SA Nickel two-tone or Extreme which have G10 grips and which haven't made an appearance yet.

I just ordered 500 rounds of Federal Range & Target. As soon as it comes in I'll be running down to the local range to put a few shots through this sweetie. I'll let you know how it goes.

Funny, I just saw a picture on the web of a 224 and wondered why it didn't have a decocker, now here you are with one. I was thinking when I saw one without the decocker how that would not be my choice. Now you have the best of both worlds for carry, a decocker and an SAS model. I love the SAS models for carry, looks like you got yourself a really nice Sig here. You did well finding this little gem and let us know how it performs.
