I don't think they make the 229 in 9mm. The safety is your finger.

If you bought a new gun in a 9mm - you must have bought the 229R Sig. It is available in a 2 tone finish or all blued and with or without the DAK trigger. If you bought one with a DAK trigger it is Double Action Only and it has one lever on the left side of the slide that is a slide release. If you bought one without the DAK trigger it is Double action / single action with a decocker lever and a slide release lever on the left side. I like the DA/SA version so I can choose to bring the hammer back and shoot it like a single action gun if I choose. The DA/SA trigger is about 10lbs pull on first rd/ then 4.5 on the 2nd rd if you shoot it DA/SA. The DAK trigger is about 6.5 lbs all the time. There is no safety, like a 1911, on any of the DA / SA or DAO Sigs.

The 229 R is available currently in 9mm, .357 sig and .40 S&W
The 229 SAS is available only in .40 S&W
the 229R Equinox is available only in .40 S&W

You will see safeties on single action only sigs like the 226 X-Five series or the Revolution series of 1911's.

:) Junior, don't feel too bad about that missing safety. I had to get out the manual on my new 239 to discover that ...WHOA! ... the company forgot to put a safety on that pistol!
