P229 Dark Elite Question
Happy New Year, I am in the market for a new P229 Dark Elite 9 mm. I just looked at one at a Sig dealer. It had the half rear slide serrations and 13 round mags. It was manufactured in Oct, 2012. I thought this was an older model that was replaced with full rear slide serrations and a 15 round mag.

Some time during 2012 Sig decided to go back to the old profile slide on the 229. I prefer the one you are thinking of that looks like a slide from a 226. Beats me why they want to change a good thing.

sigrs1, did you happen to notice what kind of 13rd mags were with the gun? Did it have straight sides, or did it have a wider bottom that tapered in at the top third, like the .40/.357 and P229-1 mags? Was there any slight looseness or play at the bottom of the mag? There is another thread here with someone buying an Elite Dark trying to figure out what mags to buy before his gun arrives.

I just purchesed the the P229 Dark Elite but cannot pick it up untill next week. It has a build date of Oct 2012, half serations on the back part of the slide, short extractor, 13 round mags ( not 229-1 ). I talked with Sig customer service twice in the last two days and they confirmed that this is the latest verion and could not explain why the change from the full seration, p229-1 15 rd mag, long extractor version.

My P229 Dark Elite was built Nov 2011.
It's brought two 15rds. mags, has the long extractor, has an extended threaded barrel and has the SRT.
