Default Sig Sauer being sued by PD for jamming handguns

https://bearingarms.com/beth-b/2017/...-malfunctions/

PD claims the millions they spent on the guns needs to be recovered so they can go buy handguns that don't compromise officer safety.

Very interesting, I've never had an issue with my P229. No real issues with my P250 either, other then I don't really like the gun. Had considered buying a P220 or P290, guess I should wait! Thanks for posting!

It seems odd that Sig wasn't able to make it right.

The P229 has been used by many agencies over the years. Sounds like they wanted new guns instead of the QC issue fixed. Sig definitely has some QC issues that get missed but the design is a proven one.

I have seen some pretty good deals on used ones lately. If you can get one that's clean for under $800 it's a good deal.

It is rather odd that they complain about sig P229, but then replaced them with Glock 17's! A G17 is really equivalent to a sig P226, not a P229! A P229 is similar in specs to a Glock 19! I found that very odd.

They might've wanted the extra capacity.

I picked up a used p229 on gunbroker a few weeks ago for $525. The seller had a few more if someone is interested.

Edit -- there is a used 9mm p229 with 2 mags and night sights with a BIN of $475 on gunbroker right now if you're quick.
