    I'm pistol shopping. I have an idea of what I want but I'm getting confused by all of these numbers. Is there a chart or something that compares the 229r to the other models?

    Sorry no one more knowledgeable than me stepped up for this but I will give it a try ( remember this is worth exactly what you paid for it ) Sig's website has good descriptions and specifications.

    P220 Full size single stack .45 and a few in 9mm

    P226 Full size double stack in 9mm .357 Sig and .40

    P229 a bit smaller than the P226 double stack in .357Sig .40 and I have heard a few in 9mm

    P228 about same size as P229 in 9mm also double stack

    P245 "compact" single stack in .45 now I think it is called the P220 Carry which sort of makes what I wrote about the P220 above incorrect

    P239 "compact" single stack in 9mm and .40

    P225 single stack 9mm a bit bigger than P239 also known as P6. I used to see these used for around 300-350 at gun shows. I wish I had bought a few. I also wish I had bought Microsoft stock on day one.

    The "R" after one of these means rail.

    There are also P210's which I have never fired. Guys who know way more than I do say they are very accurate.

    There are also some polymer Sigs. There are also some .22s. I have heard enough about both to avoid both.

    Go to Sig's website and click on the "Technical" information block for each of the guns. That will explain it for sure.

    When you say compare are you talking about technical specs? If so the Sig Web site has all that. If you want to compare size/look etc. browse the photo gallery thread at the top of the Sig section.

    I always found the best way to compare is seeing and touching them side by side. I have to see and feel.. All the specs are great but they are just numbers till I see them for real.
