    Sig P220 Carry vs. P229 Size Difference?

    Website states specs on these two are virtually the same. Are these 2 guns interchangeable in the same holster? Reason I ask is I have an opportunity to pick up a Milt Sparks Watch Six (which is not finely boned) made for a P229. Wondering if this will work for a P220 Carry? Thanks in advance.

    I have them both, and no, they will not fit the same. It will be loose. Thus, the issue with new guns and leather. Luck.

    You gave the dimensions for the full size 220 and not the 220 carry!

    Here are the dimensions for the 220 carry-

    They still will not fit snugly. I have tried them in Hume leather, and Galco leather. I have a standard P220, P220 Carry, P229 and P229SAS..oops, forgot the P239.. I like Sigs.
