The new SIG SAUER P224 pistols are now making it to the market on a regular basis and this one is mine. Holding true to all the quality, accuracy and ergonomic features of the SIG SAUER Classic Line pistol family, the P224 is the first of the sub-compacts for this line.
About the size of a G26, the 9mm P224 holds 12+1 in 9mm and 10+1 for the .40 and .357 SIg variants. This particular model came with 2, 12 round magazines. An added feature of the P224 is that it will accept and run the larger magazines from the P226 and P229 pistols. A sleeve is in development to fill the gap between the mag base and the end of the grip for the P229 magazines.
The SAS, or SIG Anti-Snag, model has had all the sharp edges blended and since it is a DAK it lacks the de-cocking lever assembly. The DAK or, Double Action Kellerman, is a DA trigger system that runs at about 5.5# and does not stack. It makes for a very smooth and consistent DA only trigger action. Combine that with the rounded butt, E2 Grip System, smooth edges and minimized slide catch lever and you have a very slick and concealable package. Knowing that I can carry 30+1 rounds of 9mm between the gun and a single spare P226 magazine gives me added confidence in the gun overall.
There are several variations of the P224. They, along with all the pertinent specs, can be found here on the SIG SAUER web site.
I’ll be shooting and hopefully carrying this gun over the next few months and will post updates as I progress.
