Does anyone know about magazines?

OK, before someone says, "use search, it's your friend.", I've spent about
half an hour using search without any matches. My question is, "will P226
magazines work in a P229 of the same caliber?". They fit in and seem to feed
but there is a difference in the taper of the magazine body between the two.
Also, the 229 mags will not fit in my 226 mag. pouch. What's the scoop?
Thank you in advance. Shawn

To answer your first question, YES. 226 mags will work in a 229 as long as your not mixing between the pistols requiring the 229-1 mag (in the case of 9mm for the E2) with the regular 226 mag. The mag catch is at the same location and the 226 mags will stick out a bit at the bottom. I believe one can get adapters to fill the gap where it sticks out.

Your second question is a bit tougher to answer! The ony reason I can think of that would keep a 229 mag from fitting in a 226 pouch would be the differences in baseplates. The difficulty I am having is, is I can't think of any mag holders where this would be an issue. If the pouch is an ultra form fitting kydex pouch, then there is the possibility that the sight difference in taper as you describe could affect the ability to fit in all the way.

I am confused about the 229-1 Mag. I plan on getting a new P229 and from my understanding they come with the E2 grips. I plan on getting a 9mm barrel for it from BarSto. What 9mm mags are not campatible with the .40 frame?
