    See if you can try it out. My 239 is a SA/DA 9 MM, never had the opportunity to try a DAK.

    Probably depends a lot on how you plan to use it. I like SA for target shooting and DA/SA or DAK for carry. But that's just my personal preference.

    One of the guns in my carry rotation is a 229DAK. If you've spent a lot of time learning to fire the first shot accurately on a DA/SA handgun, DAK eliminates the need to work on the transition from Double to Single action trigger press, when you fire more than one shot in succession.

    Since there is no Single action on a DAK trigger system, the hammer is bobbed, or smoothed - a slight benefit over a DA/SA carry gun that has full hammer, which might catch more easily on clothing when drawing from concealed.

    The DAK trigger doesn't need, or have, a decocker, so you don't need to decock after you load the gun (chambering a round), or remember to decock if you stop shooting before slidelock and need to re-holster.

    Both the 239 DA/SA and DAK have a second strike capability so you get that with either trigger type.

    My guess would be that you will like the DA/SA better than DAK, just because DA/SA is more popular, but you really need to try one before you decide. You might be surprised.

    Once you try DAK you won't go back!

    Seriously, DAK is a very nice way to go with the SIG. I have a friend who has converted several of his standard DA/SA SIGs to DAK.

    The DAK is a great option for that particular gun. I would recommend it.

    This was my first DAK....

    Liked the trigger so much that I wanted another...

    As stated, you do need to try it to appreciate how smooth the pull is and it breaks like glass, not to mention the short reset.
