    i've got a chance to pick up a CPO .229 in .40SW from a guy who lives in my city. he's asking $475 FTF.

    i shot an XD .40 a long time ago, and from what i remember, the recoil is pretty snappy. how is it in the p229? it's so tempting to bypass shipping and FFL stuff and just get it. i wanted a 9mm, but this one is so convenient i don't think i can pass it up.

    slightly less felt recoil than the XD-40. only put like 10 rounds through the XD so i don't really remember what it felt like.

    its not bad, the .357sig is sharper/snappier, especiall the cor-bon hotloads.

    For $475 it oughta be "as new" since its rebuild and come with box, 2 mags, etc. Otherwise it's too much for a FTF sale.

    Recoil on a .40 aint much different than a 9mm

    Go for it.

    On XDs it doesn't seem to be that big of a differance (to me anyway). On Glocks the differance is insane. Glock .40s are really snappy. Never shot a .40 in anything else so I can't really say beyond those two.

    Shot my XD40 and, I think, it was a Glock 22 side by side. Glock definately has more recoil. I don't remember either to tell you how it compares to a 229 though even though I've shot eWRXshun's.

    229 isn't bad but the only reason I wouldn't do it would be the cost of ammo.

    i think he said greensboro which is where i am now. i'm still reluctant about buying a .40 though, i think i'd rather have a 9mm.

    If you want 9mm find a CPO 228.

    they're always real expensive, more than they're worth i think. are they the same size as the 229?

    Yeah I saw that gun, looking at a 239 in 357 which is what I really want. Or something in 45. ALready have a 9mm. I'm down here in Wilmington.

    The recoil in my Sig 229 DAK .40S&W is honestly not that much different from a 229 in 9mm.

    how quick can you get a follow shot off? how accurate are you in rapid fire?

    Very quickly, Sig is famous for their DA/SA trigger, though I just prefer the simplicity of the DAK.

    The DAK trigger is awesome, I love mine. It's like a warm butter knife through a stick of butter.

    I'd go for it..thats a really good price they don't have to snappy of a kick like the P226 cuz it's bigger and wieghts more but I would go for it. It's as awsome pistol to have.

    I don't notice all that much difference between my 226 in 9mm and my 229 in 40. There is a difference but it's not bad. Then again I've never shot 40 in a poly gun. And I shoot my 357 all the time and 40 can't hold a candle to that recoil.

    And I'm not a girl.

    Of all my pistols my 229 DAK in 40 is my most accurate.

    Very fast once you get used to it. Just slap the fucker as fast as you can, it loves it. I can consistently keep all 13 shots in the X ring at 10 yards rapid fire with mine (229 DAK in 40).

    Remember Sig's are heavy pistols, the recoil from the 40 gets soaked up pretty good.
