This is a discussion on Two-Tone Sig P239 as an EDC within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I CC a 239, damn fine weapon. The Two-tone will conceal the same as any other....
I CC a 239, damn fine weapon. The Two-tone will conceal the same as any other.
I EDC a P239 9mm with CT grips. Need I say it ---- Sweet!!!
I may be biased, but I say get the Sig. I wear a tu-tone everday. The 239 SAS was my first and now look what happened. I have MS VMII for them all. When I must tuck I have a comtac minotaur for the 239. Concealed is Concealed.
OP, when you say 2 tone, do you mean a P239 SAS or SAS DAK? If so, snag it and do it quickly, those are pure CC gold.
I went back to the local gun store last night, and had a BS-session with the owner, as well as holding, sighting... basically everything short of shooting the 3 guns I had listed.
What it came down to is the Walther, as sexy and slim as it is, has a funny mag-drop. I like it and I think it's a very smart design. However, I was trained with the button mag-release, and I think if I did need to use it, the lever would prove problemmatic. So the walther is out.
That left the S&W M&P 9c ($500+/-) and the two-tone Sig P239($750+/-). Which is basically what I expected to pay before I looked at the tags, so neither of them was a great deal, but very average for the area. The Sig was a P239, not the SAS model as shown on the website (you can't get an SAS model in MA, of course, since I like it the best), but it came in two-tone. I can't find it online on the sig website, but it looked just like the regular P239 shown on their website, but with a stainless steel slide.
In MA, I don't think the DAK trigger is legal to buy (notice I said 'think', since I can't tell for sure), but I want to see if I can send a DA/SA out to get adjusted later on if I really like the DAK. I prefer the smooth 10lb DA trigger for the first shot to typical DAO Glocks/M&Ps.
Thanks for all of the replies. Once I decide on the weapon, I'll take pics and all that for you guys to oogle.
Stop thinking about it and get the SIG.
Mine's a 9mm SAS DAK. Best EDC I can imagine.
Weight/size/capacity ratio? Whatever, this thing is sex with a trigger.

When I first purchased a 239 I bought the black and really liked it until my Son shot it and had to buy it from me. Well that turned out alright because I went to the gunshop and they had the same gun in two-tone with night sights. I bought it and love it. It won't make any difference if you carry it concealed, its covered. Get it, you'll be glad you did

I say if you like it go for it. Two tone is no biggie and it does look nice!
I carry a two tone P220 every day, not a problem ever!
