A few P-229 Questions:





Doesn't all the newer P-229 pistols all have accessory rails & squared off trigger guards except for the gen 2 models?



Also I've noticed that when the hammer hits the firing pin the hammer seems to bounce back, Maybe it wouldn't hurt to purchase a new spring kit..

The hammer is working normally, the hammer has a rebound spring (not sure if that is the correct name) designed to back the hammer off of the firing pin. My 229 also "bounces" more so than my 226's.



Most 229's started getting rails and squared off trigger guards about 2005 - 2006, not positive of the exact date. Just by the take down lever alone on yours I would say yours is definatly pre-rail era.The 229 pictured is older than mine which has a "born on" date of around late 2000. My guess is that you've got one from the late 90's

Thanks for the info Reliable,



I was wondering about the hammer because the hammer on my 239 doesn't bounce back like this one does.



I was hoping that I'd be getting a newer 229 than this one but this one is in very good shape, I see no internal wear & the slide & frame rails look good & even the barrel has very few smileys on it.



The laser the switch is on the bottom of the grip by the mag well..



The gun shows no holster wear or dents & scratches except a few by the mag well it's pretty clean, So I guess I did ok on it.. I'm happy..



Thanks for the help..



P.S. I like your 229 better..

For more comfort, my 229 from that era is my most reliable Sig, it has run flawlessly since day 1.







Note: I just checked my armorer's DVD, the spring I was refering to is called the hammer reset spring.

Thanks, i'll take it apart & look inside & lube everything & see how things look inside, I need to buy some gun parts anyways so maybe I'll get a spring kit for it..

To OP, those are the gen 1 CT grips and feel the best in hand compared to the newer ones.

Shot a P229 in 40 (not unluck the one you are buying) for the first time yesterday. Hands down the nicest shooting 40 I've ever fired. That's a testament to the platform. Tore a ragged 3" hole (a little high and to the left of center mass ) at 7 yards. That's the best grouping I've ever had with the .40S&W. And I've shot the Glock 22, 23, and 27, XD40, and H&K P2000sk.



Nice Purchase! Good luck.

I took the 229 & 239 out shooting last Week, Both guns performed flawlessly but I really enjoyed shooting the 239 with 357 sig ammo alot.
