I've got the 9mm and it is my favorite. The 40 version of the 229 has a reputation of being one of the best platforms for that caliber. The 229 was basically designed with the 40 in mind. A plus that you also have is that you can easily add a .357 Sig barrel to give you dual caliber options.
In my opinion the 229 is the best platform Sig has going!

9mm .40 or 357 sig. The P229 is a winner.

I believe all you need is the barrel. Guide rod is the same, I think the spring is the same, mags are the same.

Like Reliable indicated, just switch out the barrel. The same mags and guide rod spring can be used.

You got a great pistol. I think that the Sig P229 is one of the best defensive handguns made. Would I like a few more rounds? Yes! But I'm not going to give up my P229 or my P220 to get them. I like Sigs - they work as advertised.
