229 sct

Good morning, all.

I am a new member and looking at purchasing my first Sig handgun. I am looking at various models, but one that has my attention is the SCT. I know this model is discontinued but I have found a few listed that are NIB. Since this model comes with extended magazines that appear to have a slightly flared baseplate I am wondering if there are SCT specific grip panels on the pistol. If so, will standard 229-1 magazines work with the SCT? If the grips panels are modified to accept the extended magazines can standard grip panels be added to the gun so that non-extended magazines will fit?

I apologize if my post seems to ramble. My concern is that as much as I like the SCT I would rather not have a pistol that is confined to the use of extended magazines.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

Take care, and have a good day.

This is my Sig P-226 SCT, (Super Capacity Tactical). It is very similar to the Sig P-229 SCT Model. My P-226 SCT will accept standard capacity magazines from my Sig P-226 Stainless Elite, and visa verse. The extended grip panels you are talking about come on the Sig P-226 Tac Ops Model. The P-226 SCT as you can see does not have these extended panels. It also ships with 4, 20 round magazines.

I think this is the flared magwell you are talking about. It is only on the P226 Tactical Operations (formerly the Blackwater edition)

You can easily change the grip panels if you choose. The magwell grip panels are not specific functionally to the SCT or Tactical Ops. They can be interchanged with any DA/SA 226 and visa-versa. Factory standard grips are fairly inexpensive. There are many aftermarket grips available as well. Standard grips can use either magazine as well extended or not. The magwell grips are available from Top Gun Supply for ~$50.
