SIG SAUER Has Officially Introduced the P224, the First True Subcompact in its Classic Line

   01.13.12

SIG SAUER introduces the P224, the first true subcompact in its classic all-metal firearms line. Ideal for concealed or off-duty carry, the P224 offers all of the features consumers expect, with one small change.

Based on the P229, one of the most prolific sidearms in federal law enforcement, the P224 takes the same hammer-fire reliability and lightweight all-metal frame and puts them in a subcompact package with all of the familiar SIG SAUER controls and functions.

Despite its small size, the P224 maintains a double-stack magazine for a capacity of 11 rounds of 9mm and 10 rounds of .40S&W or .357SIG giving the P224 a decided advantage over most subcompact competitors. Newer model P229 magazines can also be used for an even greater round count.

“Almost 80 percent of federal law enforcement agencies have chosen the P229 for its durability, reliability and safety,” said Ron Cohen, SIG SAUER President and Chief Executive Officer. “The P224 may be cut down in size, but it hasn’t lost an ounce of these performance features.”
