Here is an eminently serviceable, attractive specimen of the original Sig Sauer Compact, the P228 chambered in 9mm: 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, call it what you will; The 9mm. This weapon served and protected our Swiss friends in the Northwest Region of their country, Canton Solothurn, with that subdivision’s counterpart to our State Police. The Solothurn Shield is neatly engraved atop the slide near the rear sights. This 228 is not date coded, but from its B330000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 2005. It is thoroughly German, and serialized on its frame, slide, and barrel. Its only U.S. marking is PW Arms import stamp on the right side of the slide, as the photos show. This is standard traditional double action: from a resting hammer, a long double action pull on the first shot, and then single action until the shooter engages the decocker. This pistol, like all modern Sigs, has a firing pin safety. What the factory says, emphasizes what we know of the world’s best brand of pistol: A single action or double action pistol, the P228 has a magazine capacity of 13 rounds. It has the automatic firing pin safety system used on previous Sig Sauer pistols, and the magazine catch can be mounted on the left or right side to suit the operator's preference. The magazine floorplate, made of high impact synthetics, gives the magazine a considerable degree of protection against damage caused by dropping. An essentially closed design concept renders the P228 particularly resistant to dust and dirt. Here is what we say: the 228 and its 229 counterpart are the best quality 9mm Compact pistols on the market, emphasis on best more than on Compact. They are the smallest variant double-stacked magazine capable descendants of the definitive P226, the P-228 with semi-gloss K-Kote finish slide and matching lightweight alloy frame. Barrel is 3.9 inches 6 groove 1:10 rifling; weight empty is 26.1 oz; length 6.9 inches; height 5 1/4 inches; maximum width 1.5 inches; 5.5 inch sight radius; 10 pound double action trigger pull; and Sig's classic crisp single action pull at 4 1/2 pound vicinity, with negligible felt creep. Capacity is 13+1 rounds, and we are furnishing this pistol with two factory 13 Round 228 Magazines. Sights are orginal Factory Night Sights, and we rate their luminosity at 60 percent of original strength from our darkroom inspection. Finish is highly durable K Kote, so Surface detractions are minimal, with faint small amounts of white along some of the upper slide edges. Grips are original issue, with moderate toning to the grip screws. We rate it as Very Good, close to Excellent, 85 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly Excellent mechanically; the Swiss Police are among the best worldwide for weapons maintenance. It comes in a hard case with Cable Lock, and Factory German / French Instruction Manual.
