I know this is really a dumb question, but ya please just answer. I'm looking to get a sig 229 for my first pistol and was looking over images of the gun online. I'm not sure where the safety is. Its the lever right above the grip correct?



Let me know if I've got it right
Thanks

The DA/SA Sigs DO NOT have a Manual safety.

The Decocking lever lets you safely drop the hammer on a loaded round.
When the hammer is down , the first shot will be using the double action trigger pull ,
and the rest of the mag will be fired single action.

Unlike a 1911 or other SA pistols , the sig is Perfectly safe hammer down.

No manual safety required. The first DA pull will require ~ 10 lbs. pressure. With a properly functioning P229, the hammer cannot contact the firing pin unless you pull the trigger. There is a safe notch that keeps the hammer away from the firing pin.

No pull trigger, gun no fire.

The proper method of carrying a classic series (P2xx) or SigPro is to load a round into the chamber, depress the decocking lever, lowering the hammer, holster and go. The long travel and high weight of the trigger pull is the 'safety'. After the first shot is fired, the remaining shots will be fired from single action (the hammer is already cocked from the reciprocation of the slide), and the resulting trigger pull should be between 4 and 5lbs. ALWAYS decock with the lever, DO NOT pull the trigger and thumb down the hammer, pulling the trigger disables the internal passive firing pin block.
