SIG Sauer is now offering its P229 pistol in limited-edition carry models. Available in in .40 and .357SIG chamberings, the pistols maintain the standard grip length and magazine capacity as the standard P229, but with a shortened slide and barrel length (3.5”). Ideal for inside-the-waistband (IWB) carry or as a backup pistol, the P229 Carry uses standard length, full-capacity P229 magazines.

“As we’ve worked with armed professionals over the years, we kept hearing comments about shorter slides and barrels, but with full-size magazines and grips,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Management for SIG Sauer, Inc. “This combination offers advantages in certain low-visibility applications. One benefit of our New Hampshire-based facility is that we can adapt new designs very efficiently to meet the needs of our users in the field.”

Available in Nitron and SAS models, the P229 Carry features a non-railed alloy frame and durable Nitron finished slide. SIGLITE Night Sights are standard. Black G-10 grips offer a stout grip, even when wet.

The Nitron model features a DA/SA trigger and the full set of internal safeties found in all Classic SIG Sauer pistols. The SAS model features the Short Reset Trigger system (SRT) and has had the SIG Anti-Snag treatment applied, where all sharp corners and hard edges have been rounded, making for a more comfortable gun to conceal.

Both the Nitron and SAS P229 Carry models are shipping now in .40 and .357SIG. A caliber X-Change kit will also be available to convert .40 and .357SIG variants to 9 mm.
