    P 228 Gone?

    I was told there are NO MORE P228's being made!

    I can find USED ones around BUT, which of the NEW SIG models comes close to being the 228 these days?

    I have the need for speed.

    The P228 is still being made I believe, but for LE only. There are still new P228's around, but it will take some looking.

    The P229 is rumored to be almost the exact same gun, but I can't say for sure as I've never shot one.

    I own a P228 and it is a work or art.

    What is the difference between the 228 and the 229?

    The 228 and 229 are very simular. The 229 is slightly heavier because the slide is milled from a solid block of steel. The 228 slide is stamped metal. Both slides are designed/shaped differently regarding looks and the size of the rear serations.

    228

    the 229 is about the same as the 228 only 2 oz. heaver and metal is thicker in certain areas of the gun.

    Yes, there are new 228's around. I think Ray's Sport Shop in NJ had one not too long ago. Seems to me they wanted about $800.00 for it.
