The following is a press release from Sig Sauer
SIG SAUER, Inc., is now offering the P229 Carry chambered in .40 and .357 SIG. These reduced-length pistols maintain the standard grip length and magazine capacity as the standard P229, but with a shortened slide and barrel length. Available in Nitron and SAS models, the P229 Carry features a non-railed alloy frame and durable Nitron finished slide. SIGLITE Night Sights come standard. Black G-10 grips offer a stout grip, even when wet.
The 3.5˝ barrel makes the P229 Carry easy to draw from concealment or a duty rig. Ideal for inside the waistband (IWB) carry, the P229 Carry uses standard length, full capacity P229 magazines, making it a great back-up choice.

“As we’ve worked with armed professionals over the years, we kept hearing comments about shorter slides and barrels, but with full-size magazines and grips,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Management for SIG SAUER, Inc. “This combination offers advantages in certain low visibility applications. One benefit of our New Hampshire-based facility is that we can adapt new designs very efficiently to meet the needs of our users in the field.”
The Nitron model features a DA/SA trigger and the full set of internal safeties found in all Classic SIG SAUER pistols. The SAS model features the Short Reset Trigger system (SRT) and has had the SIG Anti-Snag treatment applied, where all sharp corners and hard edges have been rounded, making for a more comfortable gun to conceal.
