They are totally different guns. The ergos of the original P225 are fantastic. You have to hold it to know what I'm talking about. The A1...well, it's just a P239.

^^^^

I had a spare set of most of the parts, and sent them to Customized Creationz for nickel plating. This was before I even had the P6. A few years later Robertson's Trading Post was selling non-working P6 trainers for cheap. Since I already had all the needed parts to make the gun work, I bought a trainer, and replaced just about everything with my nickel parts. Voila. I have the original slide, and have been meaning to send it in for nickel plating. That way the frame can be reunited with the matching slide.

Here's my original thread:

Exactly. I have to say that I like the ergonomics of the P225A1 better than the P239, but the P239 conceals better/more easily than either the P225 or 225A1.
Even so, I carry a P220 (full size SAS or Scorpion) or P226 Legion daily...

I got to ask.... What is it about the A1 you didn't like but are fine with in the original version? I've wanted a A1 since they resurrected the 225 but just can't seem to pull the trigger when my 239 fits the position so well. The 225's fuller grip just keeps calling me.
As was said, the p225 ergos are as close to perfection as possible. The a1s are near perfect, just slightly chunkier feeling, but but not by much. Holding the a1 next to my p228, the slide profile seems nearly identical, impressive for a milled stainless, trigger guards about the same shape, not squared like the p225/220/226. The p225a1 is like a single stack p228 with a stainless slide and short extractor. The only negatives I can think of are you are stuck with only Hogue grip options, I would prefer a Sig polymer version. Also the frame is considerably shorter than where the grips extend to, not sure why. Finally the slide to frame fit is loose, not unlike many p239 9mms I’ve seen.
