SIG Sauer P224

Concealable guns continue to be among the hottest products at any gun shop, but SIG Sauer wanted to deliver something a little extra with the P224.

Something of a scaled-down version of the company's popular P229, the P224 is small, lightweight and easy to keep on your person, which are the minimum requirements for a concealed-carry firearm. It also sports chambering up to .40 S&W and can support 10 or 12 round magazines—giving it the power and capacity to serve as your "anytime" gun, too.

The P224 is a reliable, potent firearm that's suitable at your side or protecting your home, and it was an easy decision to make it a Gun of the Week.

Technical Specifications:

Caliber: 9 mm Luger, .357 SIG, .40 S&W
Action Type: recoil-operated semi-automatic, center-fire pistol
Frame: aluminum alloy
Barrel: 31⁄2"
Magazine: 10-round-capacity detachable box (12 round available)
Overall Length: 6.7"
Width: 1.3"
Height: 41⁄2"
Weight: 25 ozs.
MSRP: $1,125

I am awaiting mine, I own a P226 and the 224 .40 will be a canary alternative to my LCR.357. I handled a Shield and it seems nice; I too wonder about the high cost do Sigs. I paid $700 for the 224 and saw Shields on GB for around $375. So, twice the cost for the Sig. I guess I am relying on the high quality and reliability of the Sig (although I am dumping my Mosquito because of constant ejection and chambering issues). Lots of good choices out there, for sure.

Sig P224: Width: 1.3" Weight: 25 ozs. MSRP: $1,125 S&W Shield: Width: .95" Weight: 19.0 oz MSRP: $449 For me, the choice was easy. The Shield is lighter & thinner, thereby easier to conceal, and costs approximately two-thirds less than the Sig.

P229's etc, all have 'suggested retails' for well over $1,000+. But what is the actual price in the store? Check the suggested retail for any/all guns you just mentioned, the SR will be higher than what you paid. The discounts will be similar. Will you pay more for a Sig, yep, but 3MM rounds prove it is a superior gun

For the price that this pistol costs, I could buy two of more S&W M&P .40 Compacts. Love my M&P for conceal carry and home defense. Best $550 I have ever spent. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger and it loves to eat any kind of ammo I feed it.

Nice, but very expensive. I can buy 3 more Ruger SR9C's for that kind of money.

I Love my P229 and it shoots a lot further than 20', Accurately. I can't believe the 224 won't do the same, it's not that much shorter. Guess I will have to get one and find out for myself. $700 would be a better price.

I will keep my kahr pm40 it is flawless, and much lighter. I do own and enjoy my Sig P229 40 very reliable but to heavy for a CCW.

I have 4 Sigs including P229 and didn't pay a $1000 for any one of them, NEW! This seems to be exact copy miniturized of a P229 even the mags interchange. It weights too much to carry as a back-up and I see no advantage over the P229. Sig has over priced the P224, period! NO reason to cost so much it's still made out of a can!!!

Could you not make it out of something a little more like steel? I talking about a thousand dollars, and its aluminum? Check out a few of the CZ models!

Um, it's a SIG. Of course it's going to be reliable. Especially from the 220 family.
