    New Sig GenII P229 SAS

    Yep, swapped my P239 DAK .40 for a .40 P229 SAS D/A S/A GenII w/night sights at my local dealer ($830 discounted to about $804). $234 difference Plus he threw in 2 extra 12 round magazines (4 total). It looks alot like the P229 DAK, but all black with no Picatinny rails, also has Sigs Custom Shop emblem on the side. Took it to the indoor range and ran 180 rounds of American Eagle 165 grains, Hornady TAP 155grs., Federal HST 155grs. NO FAILURES! Appears to shoot anything made for .40 and is very accurate, POA,POI !! I wanted a Sig Stainless Elite P229, (too long a wait for B/O), but do not regret this purchase at all.

    Love my 229 DAK. What makes this one a GenII?

    I'm guessing the black instead of silver slide?

    Gotta throw up some pictures...everyone loves staring at a sig.

    Previously the SAS models were DAK, the GEN II comes in black Nitron or a two-tone model with the traditional Sig DA/SA trigger.

    If you look at their website, you can see info on the 220C SAS GenII, I was unaware they had release other models with the Gen II SAS features.

    Kind of surprised it comes with the short trigger. I put one on my P229. I like the reach a lot better, but when I pull the trigger, it pinches my finger a bit sometimes when it's all the way back. Anyone else have that problem? It's not bad enough for me to go back to the standard trigger.

    Thanks JD! This GenII was built in June /08. And yes folks it comes with short reset trigger found on the Elites. I'll try to take some pics of it ASAP!

    I don't think it comes with the "short trigger" (.40 P229 SAS) this one did not, but it does come with the short *reset* Elite trigger.

    Nothing to be sorry about. The Gen 2 P220 is the only picture of a Gen 2 I've seen (on Sigs website) and you're correct, it certainly has the shorter trigger in it.

    I love my 229 in 357 Sig and will take it to LFI in Oct and shoot both it and my P2K in training. I'll decide then which to carry.
