The P226 was a modification of the 9mm P220 offered for the JSSAP pistol trials in the early/mid 1980s. It differed from the P220 in having a 15rd double-column magazine, American style magazine release, and a trigger guard designed for two-handed firing. The P226 lost to the Beretta M92F in the weapons trial – but became a successful police pistol instead.
Immediately after the Miami Shootout, the FBI authorized the P226 as an inter-rim pistol, and issued many P226/P228s during and after the S&W 1076′s difficulties.
P226s chambered in .40 S&W and .357 SIG became available in 1994.
