Description

The P228, by the SIG Sauer Company, was the P229’s predecessor. It is a small, 9mm chambered handgun. This gun’s military model was designated the M11, and that model is still being used by various military organizations. The civilian model, P228, was produced and released in the late 1980’s through the mid 1990’s, and it has since been discontinued.
The SIG model P228 shares many similarities with the P229. The civilian P228 is a little bit more balanced than the SIG Sauer P229. The P228 does not come with a frame rail, nor does it have a square trigger guard. It has a DA/SA trigger pull, like a lot of other SIG models, so for those who like that heavier first trigger pull, it will be satisfactory.
The P228 handgun was and still is (to those who have one) a fine handgun. It was produced in Germany and was doing well in the local and international market, but it was discontinued by the Germans due to SIG’s plan to go with milled slides, and to chamber the new P229 in 9mm. That was exactly what they did, so the P228 – along with its stamped carbon steel slide – was dropped from the catalog. However, a new version of M11 – the M11-A1 – made an appearance in 2012, and that model, with its variants, is being produced and used.
The P228 firearm was declared “discontinued” on and off for several years, but it managed to stick around even afterwards. New P228’s were last seen sometime in the 2000’s, and as of now have not made another comeback. The P228 model was also taken off the company’s official website, so there is a chance this is really it for this model. All that is left of the P228 is its newer military counterpart, so let’s focus on that model.
