The P229 with a German frame uses a different exchange kit than the newer Exeter frame. Osage County guns has lots of good Sig info on their site and you can learn a lot there.
100% agree with this advice I still often use my 40. mags for 9mm but if I were planning on carrying with the 9 barrel would switch to 9mm mags better safe than dead.Although they never gave me an issue at the range.

+1 on Osage. Great retailer and knowledgable employees as well. I bought 4 SIGs through those guys, my two and my sisters' as well.
