Is it an official word from SIG that they will discontinue the SIG P228 9mm? If so, why?

Uncle Sam buys a BUNCH of these - - known as the M-11 Service pistol. Remember ? ? ?

Doubt they will dry-up anytime soon . . . . .

Me again . . .

Located my "2005 Sigarms" catalog.

Two versions of the 228 are listed : Two-Tone, with a satin nickle plated slide and the "regular" one that's all "blued".

Also listed in the "pre-owned" section of the catalog.

If you really want the 228 -- and a GREAT pistol by the way ! -- look around, you'll find one . . .

I just picked up a used but in excellent condtion P228 with one 10 round, and two 13 round mags, 100 rounds of Winchester white Box, and 50 rounds of 124gr+p Gold Dots loaded by Black Hills, and a Fobus paddle holster, for $500.

My Sig rep stated last week the P228 in any form will no longer be prioduced due to the P229 series. The P229 offers more calibers, machined slide (less maintenance). These are not my words only Sigs. I do feel you will still find some P228's out there but they will eventually dry up especially the NIB ones. so if you want them I would move it furthur up your "to buy" list.

I picked one up at my gun shop recently and love the gun. I've pumped a lot of lead with this one.

They told me the same thing when i was on the phone last week making sure my P226 made it back to my home in the states after I got deployed.

Of course, they pulled the same thing 5 or so years ago with the P228 and P225, temporarily discontinuing civilian sales while they filled some large contracts. Hopefully more of the same, and they will bring them back in a few years.

They are also reportedly going to stop producing non-rail frames versions of the P226, P220, and P229.

That's a bummer because the P228 has better balance than the P229.
