    Sig P239 a good compact 9mm?

    I handled one of these today and I liked it a lot I've always like this model of Sig handgun and I'm wanting a compact 9mm for ccw as of late. I compared it and it seemed to be smaller/thinner than the Sig P229 I put it up against. The grip of the P239 is short and thin making it a good choice for CCW it would seem as well all know the grip is the hardest part to conceal on a handgun.

    This particular P239 is a used in really nice shape blued model in 9mm,it has the box,2 mags and papers. The price is $425 OTD which i think is an excellent price for used Sig in 90-95% condition,what do you guys think? For those here who own this model of Sig how do feel it works for IWB carry?

    Sounds like a good deal to me. I'd like to add a 239 as a BUG to my 220!

    That is about the going rate for a used Sig P239. It is an excellent pistol and very concealable although wider than some other makes. It is very accurate and reliable. Some say the P239 was developed for women troopers and agents who found the P228 and later the P226 too heavy. It is well balanced and because it is a single stack magazine, the grip is slim and very comfortable for most shooters.

    If you can get an SAS with DAK trigger, $425 would be a very good price. CDNN had used for about that price for several months. I don't know if they have any left. They were LEO trade-ins that were used as back-ups so did not have much wear.

    Great carry gun, although certainly there are much smaller 9mm pistols with equal capacity. Mine functions flawlessly after hundreds of rounds. Price is EXCELLENT, even better if its a CPO. If its not, I would ask to shoot it first. Price seems almost too good. Like I said in another post, the DA/SA trigger is unbelievably smooth. Good luck.

    Get it. You'll never regret it. I have one (.357sig) for everyday carry and can't say enough good things about it. One of the best things about it, it's not a glock.

    I had a Sig 239 in 40 S&W and it was 100% reliable gun, with a great trigger, and excellent accuracy.

    The reason I no longer own it is that for its weight and size, it really doesn't carry a lot of rounds.

    I now carry a Sig 250 Subcompact, which holds almost twice as many rounds, and weighs almost 6oz. less. It also can use the same mags as the p250 Compact, which holds 16 rounds. Point is, there are better choices.

    Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!

    I had one, and it was ridiculously accurate. I did however have vicious gashes develop on the frame rails in under 200 rounds. After a trip back to Sig, they took a look and replaced it, I sold the replacement and got a Glock 19 which has almost identical dimensions and almost double capacity.
