I sold my Glock 22 because I was not wild on the trigger pull. Glocks also don't seem to fit my hand as well as most other guns--I will keep my 10mm G20 however, because I like the caliber.

I just wound up with several "Hi" cap SIG P228 mags--I have a P228 in cold storage back in VA. So, I am going to trade my P229 in .40 for a 9mm P229. If anyone knows the going rate (or more specifically, rate difference) in the two guns I would be interested in hearing it.

So, I will be shortly--.40 less.

I am trying to keep some commonality to my mags--the .45's I have will be either HK USP's or 1911's. The 9mm's I have will be different, but the mags will be instantly recognizeable--Beretta 92, Browning HP, HK P7 and SIG P228/9.

What should I look at in .40's? I would ideally like to find something with slightly different mags than the other guns--i.e. a Beretta .40 or USP .40 probably wouldn't be what I was looking for. That definitely limits me--it is possible I will go back to a Glock 22 and 23 and put the 3 1/2 lb connector in, and that might help the trigger pull. Maybe a Walther P99. The gun doesn't have to have Hi-caps available, but it is a plus.

Any suggestions? I definitely prefer high quality guns. I am also not wild on the S & W auto's--I have a pair of 10mm auto's and am only keeping them for the caliber.

Have any spare 229 40/357 mags you are willing to part with then? I'm interested in factory or Mec-Gar.

Also check with FN. I believe they`re importing .40 Hipowers again. Mine is pretty nice to shoot.

How about a Springfield Armory XD40 ??? If they're like the HS2000 (which they are exactly) they will take slightly modified S&W 59 high cap mags. Or you can also use Taurus or Beretta 92 high cap mags (also with a slight mod). This at least gives you more high cap mag options.

I wouldn't rule out the USP 40 on the basis of mags too similar looking to your USP 45, since the USP 40 mags are polymer and 45's are metal.

Take a look at the HKUSP 40 Compact LEM. The trigger is a DAO trigger that is lighter and slicker than the Glock. The reset distance is half that of the Glock so follow-up shots are very crisp and light.

My friend, if you have owned the SIG P229 in .40 cal, then you have been to the mountaintop. It doesn't get any better. Traded mine in a moment of weakness a couple years ago and still miss it.

Thanks for the replies!! I have decided to keep the P229 in .40. Maybe I'll console myself by buying another P228!!

I may look hard at the CZ/EAA guns. Although a Witness in 10mm has been on my "get one" list since I first saw it listed.

"The reset distance is half that of the Glock so follow-up shots are very crisp and light."

Are you sure? The typical Glock re-set is .85 thousandths.
