P229-E2 Olympus

The SIG-Sauer P229 E2 pistol was introduced to serve as a compact version of the P226 that could handle the higher velocity .357 SIG and .40 S&W rounds. The previous P228 had a lighter weight cast slide that could only take the higher pressure rounds if an overly heavy spring were installed. The newer P229 used a heavier CNC Machined steel slide that could take the high velocity return with a standard spring and not damage the pistol. The SIG P229 chambered in .40 S&W is the standard issue pistol of Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard, and P229s in .357 SIG are the standard side arm of the U.S. Secret Service, and are commonly used by police departments around the country. When the P229 was expanded to offer the 9x19mm as a standard caliber, that marked the end of the production life of the older P228.

Olympus Has FallenEdit

The SIG-Sauer P229 E2 was used by Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, who used to battle members of the North Korean terrorist organization Koreans for United Freedom when they we're attacking the White House at the North Lawn and killed six of them with it with he ran out of ammo on it. Several other Secret Service agents, including Agent Roma, used that weapon in the unsuccessful counter attack.

Terrorist mastermind Kang Yeonsak and rogue former Secret Service agent Dave Forbes use that pistol. Kang uses it to execute South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo and Vice President Charlie Rodriguez.
