    P229 Issues?

    Can anyone owning a P229 tell me if you have had any issues with them at all? FTE, FTF, etc..?? I am looking to get one, but want to hear about any issues anyone has experienced. Thanks!

    I have never had an issue with a P229.

    Basically zero issues. Realize if you're getting a new one, you may see last-round slide lock failures if 1. You haven't replaced the packing grease the gun came coated in with gun grease, or 2. You haven't allowed the gun's recoil spring to break in with a 1000 rds or so.

    Never had a single problem with mine. Even once I cocked the hammer and could feel the grit from a 4 wheeler ride, and it functioned flawlessly. I was worried about the same thing at first (had to order it and could not test fire), but I laugh now.

    sounds good. I have never had problems with my 220 and wanted to make sure i wasnt going to get a model with problematic features. trading the 220 for the 229 so im glad it should be all good.

    i bought mine and took it home cleaned and lubed it up. I went to the range put 250 rounds through and never had a problem. I have taken it to the range many times and usually put about 250 each time and have never had any problems.

    I've had two used 229s - one of them a CPO - no problem with either one of them. A solid design wonderfully executed.
