Sig P228 History and such

About an hour ago I was talking with one of My Neighbors Son.
He was visiting and cleaning out His Mother's garage. He was in
camo pants in a design I'd never seen before so I asked where He
got them He said they were issued to Him. He is in the Navy (CBs)
I sake him where He was stationed and he said He's Reserve with
his training in California. So I asked what were is issue weapons were
and He said A Sig Sauer pistol and an AR. So I aske is the pistol was a
P320 and He said he was not sure but he had a pic of it on his phone.
I looked and It said Sig Sauer P228 on the grips. I Told Him Sig No longer
was making it and that Sig had won a contract and will be shipping the
new p320 later this year.

I got curious and when I came in I Googled Sig Sauer P228.
Boy Did I hit the Jackpot

Doesn't the M11 have "P228" on it's grips?

EDIT: Yep

I agree but that explains how a current Navy Reserve has a P228 for his service weapon though
It is more likely he was issued an M11 (not an M11-A1) which is a real P228 since no U.S. military organization has adopted the M11-A1 yet as far as I know. The M11(P228) is what NCIS carries, or carried, as they are being phased out.

He also could have been issued an M11 (not an M11-A1) which is a real P228.
I've never been in the military, my dad was in the early 60's but he NEVER spoke about it. Something, now that he is gone, I really regret not pushing him to talk about. But anyway, how does issuing a weapon work? Is that your gun just as long as you're in certain positions, when do they issue you a new one and do they take the gun you were initially issued and just keep reissuing it until it gets to a certain age or wear or ?

Did not know that.
The thing I posted at the end is what is shown as the article.
Our Forum put ****** For the other Forums Name.
Our site blocks the green site. That's what I meant when I said "links to the green site do not show up."
That blocking is actually done by the other site. ;)

I would not be one of those members. I replaced the "P228" emblazoned grips on my M11A1 and now there is no confusion in my mind. This is one sweet P229.
You should see what I did to my M11-A1 :lol:
