Default Keltec Sub2000 with Sig magazine >>>>>>>

I posted this in the Sig forum but did not get any replies. I am looking at a 9mm one and see there is one for sale that uses the Sig P226 magazine and comes with one 10-rounder magazine. My question is could I use my P229 magazine or must it be magazines from the P226 ??? I was hoping that I could use the P229 9mm 17/18 round SCT (Super Capacity Tactical) magazines in the Sub2000. Anyone have a picture of the Sub2000 with the Sig magazine ??? Thanks for any info. God Bless *

Can't help with pics, but making *a visit to the SIGSAUER website it looks to me like the P229 is the compact version of the P226. *Pictures of the magazines indicate the catch notch is in the same location, so it should work as long as your mags are full size/length. *You might try taking one to a gunstore and comparing it to a 226 mag.

I don't believe the 226 and 229 mags are interchangeable.

I am sure the two will not interchange.. But I am no expert.
At lest not in my two pistols, P229 & P226...... they don't interchange.

Lateck,
That's what we needed to know. Thanks for the clarification.

Lateck,


Actually you sure about that ??? I know that you can use the P226 magazines in the P229, but there will be a small gap between the bottom of the grip of the P229 and the bottom of the P226 magzine. Infact you can use what is called an X-Grip to use the 9mm P226 18/20 round magazines to fill the little gap on a P229. God Bless

If this is the case then you should be okay. *The Glock versions are so popular because if the magazine is long enough to fit in the mag well it will work. *A 229 mag may not work in a 226 because it is too short to seat against the catch or bottom of the slide before the floorplate hits the bottom of the grip. * VBVAGUY you just answered your own question. *But all is not lost. *It's a common practice for Glock users in here to trim about 1/2" off the bottom of their Glock 17 Subbie's grip to allow use of shorter Glock 19 magazines. *You should be able to do the same thing IF the 229 magazine is as it looks on the SIGSAUER website, and is just a shorter version. *All you need is for the mag notch to be the same size and location in reference to the feed lips on the top of the mag. *There is a link titled G19 vs G17 in the FAQ stickied top of page with pictures to show what I mean.

They will tell you that the Sig 226 model is designed to use Sig 226 mags. And that's all they'll tell you.
