    I've googled my little heart out but can't find the answer anywhere so I'm wondering if anyone on here knows:

    What year did the P228 first go into production?

    I understand that the P226 came out in '84 but I can't find a start date for the P228 anywhere.

    Thanks in advance.

    Since the p228 is a varient of the p226 could it be maybe it uses the same release date?

    I thought I heard somewhere that the P226 is a variant of the P228?

    Oops...just looked here and you are right the P228 is a variant of the P226.

    This web site says that the P228 came into being in 1989.

    Many thanks, Serno

    How the hell did I miss that? I know that site but I hadn't noticed the year the P228 was developed.

    I knew it was a variant of a P226 so I figured it had to be newer.

    Cheers
