Sig Sauer P229 pistols are some of the most popular pistols on the market today. These handguns are used by law enforcement agencies, military units and private citizens alike.
The Sig Sauer P229 is a full-size pistol that was introduced in 1995 as an upgrade to the Sig Sauer P228 model. The P229 features a double-action/single action trigger mechanism, which means it has an exposed hammer that can be manually cocked or decocked with a half-cock notch. It also features a traditional double-stack magazine design and a slide made from stainless steel with front cocking serrations.
