That's a new one to me. Huh. Funny, since the P229 is practically identical, aside from the heavier slide. I just walked into a store and bought a P228 a few years ago.kulbreez said:Today, the P228 is sold to law enforcement and military personnel only and continues to serve the Department of Defense Agencies of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines as the M11 pistol. Many other Federal, State, and Local agenices also depend on the SIG Sauer P228 for accuracy and performance year after year.
