Despite its small size, the P224® maintains a double-stack magazine for a capacity of 12+1 rounds of 9mm and 10 rounds of .40S&W or .357SIG giving the P224 a decided advantage over most subcompact competitors. Newer model P229 magazines can also be used for an even greater round count.
Featuring a lightweight alloy frame, the P224 will be available in a number of configurations. When introduced in 2012, initial models were available with the Double-Action Kellerman (DAK) trigger and chambered only in .40 S&W and .357SIG. Traditional DA/SA triggers and 9mm options were introduced fairly recently.
Full-size SIGLITE® Night Sights allow the P224 to deliver pinpoint accuracy, which can be a challenge in most subcompacts.
The new P224 Subcompact is a Classic Sig Sauer, with One Small Change. An ideal concealed carry or back-up gun, the P224 is an especially good choice for those familiar with the Sig Sauer manual of arms. From the full-sized P226® to the P229 to the P224, the controls and operation all remain the same.
The P224 accepts newer P229 magazines, allowing users to carry a full-size spare magazine as a backup to the flush-fit P224 magazine. Law enforcement officers will appreciate not having to carry separate magazines solely for their backup guns.
The SIG Anti-Snag (SAS) model features a de-horned slide and frame, and the new ergonomically enhanced one-piece grip. SIGLITE Night Sights will be standard in the Nitron® coated slide. The short-reset trigger (SRT) will be available in the DA/SA version.
