Sig P224
#1
Anyone own a P224 yet is so what do you think of it? I was eyeballing one the other day and it's so similar to the 226 I bet I could use the same 226 holsters for both. Has anyone seen if this is the case? I must say that price is a little rich compared to the other models for what you are actually getting.

It's Sig's version of the Glock 26.

I had a Glock 19, which I didn't care for much, and sold. It was a decent gun, just not my thing. I wanted a 26, but found that it felt fatter in the grip than its bigger brother, which is retarded.

I've shot the 226, and liked it, much more than the Glock. I shot the 224, and again, it felt much fatter in the grip than the 226, with less room for my pinky finger. It's weird, and it was a turn off. I don't think they could use the same holsters, as the slide is shorter and shaped slightly differently to accommodate different internals. It might be able to accept 226 mags, though; a simple google sear h would answer that.

I already have a crossbreed supertuck for a rail-ed 226 I also know the long slide X-Five 226 fits perfectly in the standard 226 holsters including a blackhawk lvl 2 built for a SIG PRO (the standard 226 level 2 Serpa doesn't accommodate the rail well). My understanding is that the 224 prototype was literally a bandsawn and re-welded 226 so I'm guessing things like the trigger guard and trigger itself are the same size and shape. I'm guessing the only difference would be that the 224 would ride higher in a 226 holster than one specifically made for the 224. Even though I don't like the idea of ever selling guns I'm thinking it might be worth selling a P938 and getting a P224 instead because I can keep some of the same spare parts and mags on hand for both the 226 and 224 (obviously the guide rod and recoil spring will be different though) with the only down sides being some loss in concealability and the cost. The idea of paying more for a sub compact than a full frame pistol is a tough pill to swallow, although I would probably buy one used if I actually did since it wouldn't be a safe queen but rather an EDC. I'm trying to make it so that any weapons I might have all use only three calibers and most of the same parts so that if there is every a problem of ammo or parts being unavailable I don't have to worry about keeping guns in working order. Currently I'm trying to keep all weapons either to .380, 7.62x51 or 9mm so I only need those on hand and not 10 others. Thanks for the input.

I forgot to mention, it shot as well as the 226. I put about 50 rounds through it, which isn't a real test by any stretch, but it was accurate as any gun I've shot. My first fee shots were high about 1", and to the left about 2", from about 20 yards. I adjusted my grip, and sent the rest through the X.

Okay, why not look at the SIG modular pistols? P250 for hammer and P320 striker fired. You can swap sizes and calibers without tools or an FFL. And the same holster will fit both pistols, both full & compact.

I don't want ANY plastic guns at all, otherwise I would buy a G26 (it is a much better value than the SIG if all you want is a reliable weapon in the short term). I want to be certain that any guns I might have over the years will carry on working for me and my descendants 100 years from now as long as they are maintained. The first thing I did with the 226 I got my hands on was replace the plastic grips and plastic guide rod I hate plastic anything on guns so much.

I've got one, and it definitely does NOT fit the P226 or P229 holsters. It's a nice gun, but it really sucks that there's such a limited selection of holsters so far, and I can't use any of my other holsters.
