Question DAK Status

I currently have a SIG Sauer P229 DAK and was considering getting another model, perhaps the P226 or the P220. However I no longer see the DAK variants on the SIG Sauer site. Does this mean that they are discontinued? I still see them listed on Quantico Tactical, but want to know why they are no longer on the SIG Sauer site. A Google search did not turn anything reliable up.

I've also noticed that the TACOPS Traditional is no longer an option, just the TACOPS.

All of the DAKs were discontinued a while ago except in support of law enforcement contracts.

And yes, a LOT of desirable models have been discontinued. A TON of them!

I guess I will have to purchase used, which isn't always a bad thing. I have a CPO P229 DAK in 40 S&W which I like, but I was wanting something else.

I've noticed the P224 is gone, which I liked because it will take P229 mags, or so I was told. What was their reason for discontinuing the DAK and other desirable models?

I have not heard or read a reason for discontinuing the DAKs, but I would suspect that they just want to transition to the P320 striker-fired platform for LEOs as well as the Army.

Agreed. I don't know SIG's official reason, but I suspect it's because they don't want to dedicate increasingly-precious production resources to a platform that never really caught traction outside of some agency contracts, especially as the civilian, LEA, and military demand for the 320 is exploding.

That is almost what I was thinking, due to the Army and ICE P320 contracts.

I like my DAK, but it seems they are sort of a rare breed. I am interested in the P320 too, so perhaps I will check one out.

I have a 229R DAK in .357 (with a .40 upper too) that I really like. I've got a TLR-1 on it and it's my HD gun, because I like the idea of a longer (but buttery smooth!) pull for HD.

But my 320C has replaced all my other handguns in my carry rotation. It's a superb SD pistol.

I like the trigger on the DAK. The trigger on my DA/SA bothered me because of the light SA trigger pull. I too use my P229 DAK for HD and have a TLR-1 on ot.

I want a P320 but don't know if I should get the compact or carry model. It looks like both have the same barrel length, but the grip length is the difference.

I had a P226 in DAK the moment it came out because it was a dream come true. However, IMHO, I think the reason it never caught traction was because the first ones were unreliable due to light primer strikes. I know that's the reason why I quickly got rid of mine.

They both have a Compact upper, but the Carry model has a 17 round grip (vs 15 for the Compact).

But that's the beauty of the modular design. I bought a Carry and then picked up a Compact grip frame for it. Now I can use either.

In fact, I also picked up a Subcompact grip frame for it, so I can use any of the three. Modular = flexibility.

I got the DAK because of the trigger pull versus the DA/SA, and I haven't had any problems with it. I have a cousin who hates anything that isn't DA/SA, and even he liked the DAK.

Are there any other manufactures that make a trigger similar to the DAK that isn't striker fired? The only one I could find was the H&K LEM trigger.

That's what I thought, the grip was the only difference. I like the modular design, but I want to know how it'll hold up in the long term. It's pretty cool that you can have multiple guns that's really only one gun.

Besides the H&K LEM, I can only think of a DAO semiauto, or a revolver. But the pull won't be quite like the DAK, and there will be no intermediate reset.
