Sig Sauer P229 SAS .40 S&W

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

There's a lot to like here: dehorned slide, decent trigger, good looks. But all that costs $500 more than a gun we liked better, the M&P40.

The SigArms P229 SAS (Sig AntiSnag) has mostly been dehorned. One spot they missed was the front of the slide, which featured a very sharp point (arrow) on each side.
In the hands of our testers, we found disagreement about the fit of the the grips. For some, the wooden grips were too thick and slick.
Others said they were hand-filling and helped control the gun. But most of our team agreed that the grooved frontstrap was an effective metal treatment.
