    Sig p239

    Can anyone give me any recommendations for this gun? I want to hear what you all think of it. The model I was looking at was a preowned never shot. It comes with the .357 barrel and 2 mags and also the .40 cal barrel w/2 mags. It is black and selling for $799 plus tax. If this is not a good buy please let me know. I can also get the .40 cal with 2 mags for $629+ tax. Any info would help.

    I have shot a few, but never owned one. Very nice gun: accurate, comfortable grip, nice sights, nice trigger, reliable, and very thin for concealed carry. I am not up on pricing currently.

    That was my first CCW and it is a great gun. that said, a few days ago I handled one with the new DAK trigger and it is far superior to my SA/DA. Get a good holster and belt and you will have an excellent CCW... Lou Alessi makes his PCH for IWB carry and it is as good as it gets, but the wait will be rather long....oh, his belts are second to none. I have one cow hide leather and two shark..good luck...

    Price is probably fair...

    Of the two alternatives you mentioned, I would go with the .40 caliber gun for $629. I don't consider the .357 Sig caliber to offer any advantage over the .40 in ballistics, if you pick the best .40 caliber ammo - so I wouldn't pay extra to have the .357 Sig barrel.

    The $629 is fair for a used P239 in "unfired" condition. I am presuming it is not a CPO (certified pre owned) Sig that the factory has refurbished after being owned by a police department - these usually go for $500 to $550 or so. And you didn't mention if the gun has night sights or the two tone effect with stainless slide, which can influence value upward.

    The .40 caliber P239 is an excellent CCW gun, in my opinion, which weighs 27.5 ounces empty and has a slim profile for easy concealment:

    I have the P229 SAS. I believe the only difference between it and the P239 is the size of the magazine. It is an outstanding gun. It is accurate, smooth, and easy to control. I've never had a single failure to feed or eject. Sigs do not disappoint.

    Go for the P239 for $600...+1 to Pogo2 (for all the reasons he listed)

    I have a P229/.40 and am looking to add a P239/.40 to my collection. Its a great gun to conceal (I borrow my dad's P239/9mm when he visits).

    You won't be disappointed.

    Get it

    Magazine <> clip - know the difference

    The 239 is shorter, thinner, not as tall, and lighter. AND I have both. Really like the 239 to carry. Mine has CT grips on it.

    There are a number of threads on the P239. Here are a few:

    799 is too high I think.

    I paid 529 NEW for my P239 9mm. I got lucky it seems though.

    Mostly, the lowest I've seen them new is in the $600's.

    It's as good a carry gun as it gets. The capacity is a little low compared to others, but really you are unlikely to need more and the magazines are real slim, so a reload is easy to carry.

    Shot-placement is king. Adequate penetration is queen. Everything else is angels dancing on the heads of pins.

    I agree that it is a little too high priced on either package. It is definitely a small grip gun, and because of that it is easy to conceal. It shoot very well and eat everything I ever feed it, and never one FTE. I personally did not like the small grip.

    Biggest Recommendation: Shoot one before you buy it.
    Be Observant and Be Safe.

    I own a 239 and would like to point out 3things you might want to look at.
    First of all, the pistol is a high quality peice and can suite you well.
    In first round DAO, the trigger will pinch my trigger finger between it and the pistol housing. It hurts a little and I am looking for a fix.
    The sights are fine for daytime, but I would highly recommend 3 dot night sights.
    The 1911 grip is more comfortable for me.
    Your mileage may vary, and this is a very good pistol.
