Thumbs up Another common .40 - a certified old Sig 229 - and it's great

After getting one of the last S&W CHP4006TSW from CDdoubleN, my first .40 S&W and semi-auto S&W pistol, I discovered how much I like 40. So just got another 40 from the same place, a Sig 229 with German made frame, "SIGARMS" marked (so I get, 2007 or earlier?), fat and solid trigger, short extractor, factory refurbished and (unlike my beat up 4006TSW copy) this one arrived looking like brand new. Just a bit dirty, like it was factory fired, but no signs of being carried or even used. Refurbishing done right it looks. Being certified by Sig came with some factory warranty too. Two brand new 12 rounds magazines included in the red box.

They are great pistols! I have one just like that that I bought NIB many years ago. Enjoy!

Very nice. Red Box CPO SIGs are often a great value.

Looks just like the one I purchased about a year and a half ago. Red Box (certified pre-owned) factory refurbished to as-new condition, one year Sig warranty, with manual and 3 mags, just under $400 plus shipping to my local FFL. At that time Sig's MSRP for a new P229 was $1087. Mine has a local police department number stamped on it in addition to the factory serial number, so obviously a law enforcement trade-in piece.

Excellent shooter, too! Very good ergonomics, natural pointing ability, decent trigger pull, easy to put shots where I intend to. I have fed mine home handloads with cast bullets, FMJ, and factory from CCI, Fiocchi, and Remington without a hiccup on the range.

One of the best gun deals I have made in years. I am still toying with the idea of a .357 Sig barrel, reportedly a drop-in conversion with no other changes necessary, even uses the same magazines.

Enjoy your new Sig!

I bought mine several years ago from same place, but it was a DAO P229 in 357 Sig. I ordered a standard Sig 40 S&W barrel and it dropped right in and has never bobbled.

Several months ago I walked into a LGS and spied a Sig P226 , chambered in 40 s&w in the used section . When I asked about it , I was told it came with 3 magazines and a 357 sig barrel . I couldn't see any wear areas . It was priced for $400 . It went home with me and I'm not a semi guy . It had been given an action job by a very reputable shop . The DA is light and sweet . I was afraid it might suffer from light primer strikes with such a light DA . I loaded up some handloads using CCI primers , which supposedly have the hardest cups . It never missed a beat , 100% reliable and very accurate . It's a keeper for sure . Good deals are out there , but patience is required . Regards Paul

I have a 229 9mm that I bought years ago. It has never missed a beat and is one of my favorites.

Very nice, I too recently bought a CHP 4006TSW, but mine wasn't all beat up, just a bit of holster wear and some shallow scratches on the surface which could easily be polished out, but because a Police gun, I've decided to leave it as is since it's all part of the mystique.

That being said, it wasn't my first .40cal, that honor goes to my SW40VE which was purchased several months prior for $199 LNIB at my FFL. However, since then I've gained a newfound appreciation for the cartridge, and I just changed my username to reflect that.

For me the P229 is the king of combat handguns. I carried my .40 229 and 232 most of my career. Of all my guns, my 229 will be my SHTF gun. Iíve trained and fired more rounds through it than any other gun.

Affirmative, pau ferro.
For duty carry I used the OEM plastic grips. I added these after I retired. They are great looking but kinda chunky for my medium/large hands.
