229 scorpion barrel questiom

I'm thinking of picking up a 229 Scorpion in 9mm. It seems there are 2 kinds of threaded barrel for the 229 model. Which barrel should I get to work with the 229 Scorpion?

BBL-229-9-T or BBL-229-1-9-T

It depends if it is newer or older. Newer 9mm P229's use a 229-1 barrel, hence the -1 in the second model. You need to find what model the gun is--it will say on the side of the barrel.

Old P229/9--narrow magwells, 9mm breach, 9mm locking insert (same parts as P228)
New P229-1--wide magwells, .40 breach, .40 locking insert

The barrels are NOT interchangeable.

For the Scorpion, you want to get the 229-1-9-T barrel.
