Thoughts on a Sig p224

I have read several articles on the New Sig P224. I currently own a Sig p229 with both .40 cal and 357 Sig barrels. They say the 229 mags will work in the 224 but only the newer 229 mags. What indicates a newer mag? Anyone n
know of the year of newer mags? Just a little confused.

Thanks For Any Info

This only applies to P229 9mm mags. The .40 and .357 mags have not changed so yours should work.

The newer 9mm P229 mags are labeled 229-1 and have a capacity of 15rds instead of 13. The mags are also wider at the bottom and taper, or bottleneck in about 2/3s of the way up (same profile as .40/.357 P229 mag) because they are designed to fit the new 9mm P229s that are based on the .40/.357 P229 frame with its wider magazine well. The P224 evidently also has the wider mag well.

Ok that answers that question. Can anyone tell me if they have the p224 in a 40 cal with the DAK trigger on how well it shoots and handles with the short grip. I like the p239 but I do not want to lose the capacity of the double stack magazine.

Not if the 9 mm is available in this model but would like to know if anyone has one and how they like it.

Sorry, I don't have one ... yet, but I'm looking real hard at a DA/SA 9mm P224 Extreme when they become available. There are 9mm P224s out now, but I'm not sure which models.
