The word that SIG’s adding to their ‘classic’ line of pistols for the first time in 15+ years was news. So as soon as the doors opened, lots of SHOT attendees made a bee line for the SIG booth to fondle the new P224 subcompact. SIG’s basically taken a hacksaw to the venerable P229, chopping the barrel and grip lengths to make a more easily concealed gun. But the compact 9mm will still pack a double-stacked 11 rounds (10 in .40 and .357). And they’ll offer the gun in both DA/SA or DA-K with de-cocker configurations. MSRP is $1,100 and expect to see them in stores in late spring.
