New Sig P229 PRO

Sig Sauer has been making the P229 for a minute, and it has gained a bit of fame as the default “government agent” gun on screens large and small.

Hey, both Jack Bauer and Jack Ryan carried one, so it has to be good, right?

Well, while Sig may not make it in .40 S&W anymore (relax, they don’t make any guns in .40 S&W anymore), they have updated the P229 to make it optics-ready with a lightened PRO-style slide and flush-fit 15+1 round mags, an update from the old 13 rounders that go back to the unsung P228.
