The SIG Sauer P229 DAK (Double Action Kellerman) is a compact version of the SIG Sauer P226, like the P228. It can be chambered for .22 LR, 9x19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG.

Design and History

The P229 was introduced as a compact version of the P226 that could fire the higher-velocity .357 SIG and .40 S&W rounds, unlike its predecessor the P228, which had a lighter cast slide that must be manually modified in order for it to withstand those rounds. In contrast, the P229 used a heavier steel slide that could withstand those rounds and not damage the pistol in the process. The .40 S&W version of the pistol is used by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard, and the .357 SIG version is used by the U.S. Secret Service. Both versions are also commonly used by police departments all across the U.S.
