Are they interchangeable?
I had original P226, 1980's vintage, mags that I carried as spares for my P229, same vintage. They functioned fine but extended a little beyond the bottom of the grip.
With the introduction of the P229-1, I don't think the -1 and original mags are interchangeable.

All P226 magazines are narrower than 357/40 P229 magazines. A P226 mag will normally lock into the magwell of a 357/40 P229, but it will be a loose side to side fit. The people who have tried using them like that report that everything usually functions fine, but other than using them in an emergency when the proper magazines aren’t available or to save a few dollars, there’s nothing to recommend the practice.

My P226 (2010) .40 mags functioned fine in my P229 (1996) .40. Tried it several years ago just out of curiosity.

The profile of the 229 and 226 mags is different!! Be careful I saw someone try 226 9mm mags in a 229 9mm did not go so well.

I was concerned if te 229 .40/.357 would fit in the 226.
