Sig P224

SigSauer is getting into the subcompact, double stack 9mm game. The P224 is a shortened 229, no doubt to compete with the Glock 26 and M&P compacts.

    You have to be a real optimist to buy a new gun from SIG these days.

    I’m with PDB. buying a new Sig these days seems to be a real crapshoot.

    Now if only the grip wasn’t 3 inches wide.

  4. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Hmm,let’s see. One Bigger, Heavier, Bulkier pistol that can’t be gripped w/o leaving the little Finger dangling for over a $1,000, OR 2 Glock 26s for the same amount of cash.

    Remind me to sell my Sig Stock.

    Or two M&P Compacts and about 5 spare magazines

  6. Weer'd Beard Says:

    …or 25 hi-points!

    I am still intrigued by the hopefully forth coming P938 but since I have an aversion to low serial numbers on “working guns” (of any brand), it’ll still be a few years before I’ll consider purchasing one.

  8. Weer'd Beard Says:

    #1. Just buy a Springfield EMP9 and get on with your life. The gun will be nearly identical with what SIG is claiming for the P938, the price will be the same or a better deal with the Springer, and the slide likely won’t be cut to look like a tiny P220, and the small parts will actually work.

  9. mike w. Says:

    Weerd – And it’ll be significantly thinner than this P224.

    Let’s chop down our P229 and call it a P224. This is the best Sig can come up with these days? Meh.

    It seems that I’m alone here, but I’m kind of excited by this. I’ve been in the market for a 9mm DA/SA carry handgun with a decocker, and this seems like it might fit the bill. It’s a shame that they’ve had so many quality control problems with their polymer guns, but I still like the metal SIGs.

    chrispy,

    See if you can hunt down a S&W 3913. No, I am not kidding. This little guy is one of the best kept secrets in CCW’ery.

  12. ArmoryBlog Says:

    I’m actually really looking forward to this!

  13. chrispy Says:

    Thanks, pdb, I’ll try to find one. Other than the magazine disconnect safety it looks pretty cool.

  14. Weer'd Beard Says:

    chrispy, I am not a gunsmith, but I have it on good authority that one can pluck the disconnect out of that unit with little effort.

    I’ve also heard that an average Joe can do it too….but I’d rather just pay a smith and relax while he works rather than sweat bullets that I might be messing up a perfectly good gun.

    I would remove the disconnect either way as it makes a perfectly safe gun dangerous.
