Clearly, I fell asleep last fall when Sig brought out the Carry version of the 229! 3.5" barrel? Full-sized grip? Nitron or SAS? Was it released JUST as .40 or .357? Don't see any 9mm on GunBroker.
Anybody have one, shot one, held one, read about one? Seems like that shorter barrel in .40 would be a bit snappy, but maybe not.
I didn't just dream this up, did I?

.40 only, I called Sig and asked when it would come out in 9mm and they said it would not be.
So if you want 9mm you have to get a conversion kit.
The pistol has been out for sometime but Sig said it did not seem to be very popular. I told them if it was 9mm and maybe a little press about it you might sell a few more.

Yeah, I've been surfing the Google since I posted and the early write-ups said it would be offered in .357, but I don't see any out there.
Basically a 224 slide on a 229 frame, if I'm following. The SAS looks kinda cool. I've gotten so used the the 3.9" and 4.4" barrels, the 3.5 might seem a bit stubby, but it's kind of intriguing.
Just would like to hear from anyone who has one or has at least shot one, for impressions, range reports, pluses and minuses, etc.

I bought one in the SAS (melted corners, short reset) .40 version after seeing a few videos on youtube showing how great they are. I wish I could tell you first hand how it shoots, but it's still in the box. I'm thinking about selling it.

I've got one (an SAS) in .40 caliber and I really like it. It is every bit as great a shooter as my other P229's, so no worries about the slightly shorter barrel affecting anything. They are unique in that the Carry doesn't have full length rails like other P series SIGs. If you have an opportunity to get one, I would recommend the P229 Carry.

I'm a 229aholic but when I saw that I went nah. Plus I've never found myself saying gee I wish my 229s were a little bit shorter, maybe thinner though.
Actually I don't see them or the 224 on their web side anymore, maybe they are going the way of the 224.

I have on in 40 cal, SAS. Love it. Perfect balance, great grips and the action is very smooth. I thought the recoil spring felt a little light but I have close to 1,000 rounds through it without a problem. It replaced my G23.

I've got one and have been very happy with it. Here's pretty much everything I know about the model: http://sigtalk.com/sig-sauer-pistols...rry-house.html

Very interesting, and thanks for the link to the thread you started last year - 15 page thread, so I've got some reading to do!
Will have to ponder this one. Seems like kind of a cool idea.
Let me read through your thread; I'm sure that will answer most of the questions I might have.
THanks again to all of you, as well, who have chimed in. Seems like, on balance, there are more fans than detractors.

I purchased my p229C SAS in 40 S&W back in March for $599 new. I didn't do so hot with the 40 but had it to the range last night with a .357 Sig barrel installed - man o man! What a difference in my groups! Ran Speer lawman, Speer GDHP LE and a mag full of hot Underwood ammo (stuffs pricey) and all the way! It's too nice IMHO for EDC, so I will continue to carry my p239 in 357 Sig (not that that isn't a nice pistol). If you can find one - I would get it. Good luck!
