    I don't think this has been done before, and it does come up occasionally, so I'll add some pictures.

    This is a physical comparison of the 239 (this one in 40) and the 225 (9mm).

    You can see that the difference in sizes aren't just that great.
    This is the 239 laying on the 225.




    A comparison in width...and yes...I dropped my gun on the floor and chipped the grip on my beloved 225...am I STUPID or what ?



    and finally side by side...


    One might notice that the grip on the 225 has a bit more space for the hand,thus the major difference in feel...escpecialy if you have big hands like me...even so, the Hogue grip is a major improvement over the stock grips on the 239.

    Yep... pics are worth a thousand words and a lot of speculation.

    Very nice pictures HotGuns... I would love to see someone with a new SIG P250 and a P239. I thought the P239 was a very nice concealable gun, but the grip was a little too small for my taste.

    The p-239 is an excellent, reliable, and accurate handgun. Just to give you a perspective of how small and concealable it is, here's a side by side of my 239 (40 cal.) and my Glock -26 (baby glock).
    I tend to carry the Glock more frequently because it is lighter in weight.

    I have both the 239 in 357sig and my first SIG the 225. They are very close in size(unnoticable difference). The 225 does fit my hand a little better, but I carry the 239 SAS. You can find the 225 P6's for less than $400. They are police trades from Europe. They will have a cut out on the hammer.

    I saw the 250 mentioned here. The trigger is different from the standard DA/SA and the DAK. They can be had for around $550 on another forum.

    We had a thread on the 250 here. Try doing a on 250 or P250.

    It's a .380 AKA: 9mm Kurtz. I have the P230 and it is a fine carry option to have.

    Cool Concealed Carry Guns

    Hi, I have three nines that are extremely comfortable to shoot are very accurate, reliable and I love shooting them all. I do equally well with all three. They are: 1) EAA Witness Elite which I use for competition, 2) Sig 239 and 3) Springfield EMP which are fantastic for all kinds of shooting enjoyment including some competition formats. However, for me personally I only find one of these great pistol to really work in a CCW role. It is my little Springfield EMP. The Sig 239 is a little too thick for me to carry comfortably either IWB or OWB. Where by contrast the EMP can almost be carried in your pocket.
    There's my two....

    The P229 is the compact version of the P226 and also available in 9mm, .40S&W and .357SIG.

    I have to agree with JimK68 on the Sig 239 being a little thick for IWB. I am pretty small. 5'5 110 28" waist. I carry IWB with my 1911 and it is more comfortable than the Sig but considerable heavier. It also depends on how baggy of clothing I wear and if I care about printing or not. Some days I dont.

    OTH the Sig is the first handgun I ever bought (day I turned 21) It has been the most reliable handgun I own over the years. I love it. I think I just need to find a better way to carry it. I tend to carry my Walther PP .032 as I have a shoulder harness and a use the Uncle Mikes IWB holster.

    Well, everyone's situation is different, but there are PLENTY of folks who carry the P228, 229, or 226 as an IWB EDC (my own 6'4", 32" waist self included, and my 228 has the Hogue grips that make it even a touch thicker) - and all of these are considerably thicker than the P239. Yes, there are slimmer guns out there, but the P239 is actually quite slim - I would definitely try to give it some sort of test drive before eliminating it based on thickness.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Also made in the 9mm Police 9mm X18mm. Just harder to come by, but the P230 is the smallest 9mm Sig made. If you mean modern or current production, or 9mm X 19mm, that's been covered. Look here;
