The US made frames are harder to date because the serials don't follow the German serial numbers order. I know yours is US by the U in the serial (AAU). German framed P229's only have 2 letters. Is your gun a CPO? I see your slide says SIGArms. Does the frame say SIG Sauer?
the only sig i really can't shoot is the DAK. i have 226 .40 dak, and I just can't make that trigger work for me. I'm sure its me, but for me if Dak isn't a reference to the cowboys quarterback, I've got no use for them.
Might spend $180 to have changed to da/sa, wasn't aware it was that inexpensive.
The .40 isn't all that bad in a 229. You can get a Barsto barrel in 9mm and a SIG barrel in .357 then have 3 guns in one. The new P229-1 mags for 9mm will work too, although the .40 mags have worked fine in mine with the Barsto barrel.
It looks to me like this 229 has been barely used and has probably spent more time in the box or someones sock drawer than anything. It's a great deal for the price, even if it is a DAK.
If I saw this at my LGS for that price, it would already be in my safe. Haha!
