The P228, by the SIG Sauer Company, was the P229’s predecessor. It is a small, 9mm chambered handgun. This gun’s military model was designated the M11, and that model is still being used by various military organizations. The civilian model, P228, was produced and released in the late 1980’s through the mid 1990’s, and it has since been discontinued. This is Gunivore’s SIG Sauer P228 Review.
The M11 compact service pistol is the U.S. military’s variant of the SIG Sauer P228. Though now retired from civilian duty, the P228 can still be found in the holsters of military law enforcement and investigative agencies, as well as security personnel and aircrews of the U.S. Air Force.
In response to Mad Orgre's Challenge, I present a review of the first firearm I ever owned, a SIG-Sauer P228.
