My OG P228 ex law enforcement gun has alot of slide to frame play. Is there anyway or even a reason to fix this? My P225, P220, and P226 dont have near the play that the p228 does. Thanks in advance.
Sig Sauers and Rugers. You cant have just one.
That is commen with some older P-series pistols. There's not really any way to tighten up the slide to frame fit. You could try a P229-9 slide on it to see if that takes care of the rattle.
If you lube the rails with grease, that should cut down on the rattle.

Long ago I contacted Grayguns about a 9mm P229 that had a lot of slide rattle. As I recall, I was told that they could try squeezing the sides of the slide together and that might improve things. Or that it could destroy the slide: no guarantees.
What’s important about this frequent question, though, is of course is how the gun shoots. Many people have reported that a rattling SIG Classic line pistol slide has no apparent effect on accuracy, and then a loose slide just helps ensure reliability.
