As Mysto said, the 227 is a good as there is in a combat pistol. The sas version is basically a 229 in 45 from a size standpoint and would make an excellent carry gun. I absolutely love my 227 carry..

So if you have a 224 and something breaks / fails and you return it to the factory for warranty work and there unable to fix it wouldn't that result in them offering you a new gun of current production?

I'm asking because I just got a 224 and in the event something happens i'm curious to hear if someone who has had personal experience with this and the outcome.

Well what are they going to replace it with? Doubtfully another 224, and that's the point. Not sure what they may offer, could turn out to be a better deal, but if you like the 224, I would assume you'd want another which they won't be able to replace down the road. If I had one, I'd buy some extra parts/ mags now while they still had them. I think you're probably fine now, but as time goes on, it will just be more difficult to find parts you may want/need.

Thanks everyone for your info and pics. I called my local guy and he can get a p227 sas gen2 for $848 + tax( distributor only has 2). So I decided to go for it, he is going to order it for Monday and I should have it by the end on the week.I will post some pictures when she comes in.

Again thanks

Congrats Jeeper, you won't be disappointed. AainMo has a good point on the skinny trigger, I also replaced mine with the standard although try it first. That same trigger on my 226 Tacops didn't pinch like the 227 did.

I am NOT knocking the 227. I own one and love it. But I cannot think of why it would compliment your arsenal much if you already have a 229 and like it? I have a 224 Extreme in 40. The first time I ever shot it, my brother in law and I were shooting bowling pins. He lined up 6 and I knocked all down with 6 shots (I am usually not that accurate and get a little excited afther the 4th or 5th one). It came out of the box roaring and still is. I love that little guy! I vote the 224 as it fills a hole for you that the 227 does not fill. Also they quit making the 224, so get em new while you can.

assuming that you do not break the frame or slide, most of the parts that break on the 224 are the same as other weapons that they make. The 224 is just a shortened 229. In addition they will keep all parts necessary for a repair for decades.

I agree but they could run out of things like frames but I wouldn't have a problem moving to another model as a replacement.

I recently sold a S&W 625-10 there was only a small amount of them made (6 shot 45acp snubby revolver) there were issues with the frames cracking due to the barrels being over torqued when assembled and Smith gave people who had one crack any gun they were currently producing that was equal dollar wise and you could pay the difference to upgrade.

On a related but unrelated note, I cannot find the section for discontinued items on Sig's new website. Is it still there and I cannot find it? Please advise

I hope you enjoy your P227.

I the P224 is a nice carry gun and mine has been reliable and accurate.

Get a 224 sub compact, purchase an extended mag, now you have a 229c. 2 gun sizes for the price of one!

I understand what you are thinking, but one of the things you are overlooking is that I currently don't have a 45 caliber gun. This fills a caliber gap while being almost identical to my 229's. It gives me more ammo options if ammo gets hard to find in another caliber.

Love my 227 SAS. Uses the same holster at my M11 and is probably my #2 Carry weapon. Not a fan of the E2s, but I have XL hands, so it's not a surprise. Such a personal issue and a pretty easy fix.
And, PLUS ONE on swapping out the Short Reach trigger. Really not a fan of those.

Good choice on the P227 SAS. I have one and an M11-A1. You may find the feel very similar between the two as I did. As others have suggested, you may find switching out the trigger for the standard size (Sig P/N TRG-22690-BLK) would be a preference as well.

Oh, and they ride well in Jeeps, have some of them too

Yep--you are right, I did not think of that. In reality hard to go wrong with any of those weapons. The sig p series is tried and true, and always (for me) seems to go bang. I took a tactical class a while back that was held in the woods. I took my 229 (in .40). I had done a lot of planning and saving for this class and it was a big deal for me both financially and in terms of effort. The fact that it was in a torrential rain storm did not stop the class. All my life I have done my best to clean and keep my weapons clean. For 2 days I was told to drop mags in the mud, pick em back up and shove them into my beloved Sig. I started out mortified. guess how many jams I had in 2 days with over 1000 rounds fired from my Sig 229 Elite (now covered inside and out in mud)? I want to say zero but in fact there was one--a true primer failure where the primer was struck and struck deep and simply did not go bang. Not the weapons fault. Although I was already a sig guy, I left there that 2nd day even MORE of a sig guy. And my 229 cleaned right back up into nearly new shape.
