    Question Smallest Sig in 9mm for carry?

    Hello - Pardon me for my lack of knowledge concerning Sig products. I just went to the Sig Arms site and am more confused. Is it the 239 which is the single stack? Is there anything else I should look at which is small and light in the product line?

    Thanks.

    The 239 is, in fact, Sigs smallest 9mm. The 232 is significantly smaller, but is, of course, a .380.
    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.

    The sig p239 is two things:

    1- The smallest gun in the sig line that I would suggest for conceal carry

    2- It is one of the very best conceal carry guns on the market, also it was my very first CCW and I still have it. Others will tell you a couple of the other larger sigs are only just a little larger and deserve consideration...true, but I really like my P239 in 9mm..it weighs some 25 or 26 oz,scary accurate,stone cold reliable...Go for it...

    The 239 is a awesome gun, the 9mm version in particular.

    There are P230 pistols in 9mm Ultra out there. Just hard to find. (Or is it 9mm Police?)

    Take a look at the 225. Its also a 9MM single stack and really not much bigger than the 239.

    I have both. I actually prefer the 225. Its out of production and may be difficult to find, but they are out there.

    I own the Sig 239 in 9mm and find that the quaility of this gun is excellent! I have the DA/SA trigger system which helps me to obtain great accuracy with this gun! Another facter to consider is that this gun is easy to control during one-handed shooting because of its weight balance & single stack design! In a panic situation this gun is a gem to have on your side! In choosing any gun-- Control & Comfort of a gun are the KEY"S - to the right selection of any handgun!

    Didn't Gander Mt recently have a sale on Sig 9's? I can't recall the model, but they weren't 239's or 226's. 225 is the only thing left isn't it?

    The old P225 is a single-stack 9mm. I don't think it is smaller than the P239, but I don't have my SIG bible at hand.

    There will also eventually be a subcompact version of the new P250, so I suspect that would probably qualify. (Although, IIRC, SIG already classifies the P239 as a subcompact, so it may not get you much smaller anyway.)

    Gandermountain did recently have a sale on the P225. I found out about the sale 2 weeks after.:
    I have heard great things about the 225 and have really been itching to get my hands on one. The 239 is just a bit small for my hand so I figure that the 225 should be just right!!

    Go with the new sig p250. Its not that much bigger then the 239 and it has a 15 round capacity vs 9 rounds. Its also much lighter and it has night sights, all for the low price of 629.99 (at least that is what we sell it for at Sportsmans warehouse). I am going to pick one up as my next pistol.

    Yup! Right now the 239 is SIG's smallest 9mm (also in 357 SIG and 40 S&W). As you've seen here most folks that have fired it will tell you it's a "tack driver".

    Usually the biggest complaint is the "small" grips. I swapped out the stock grips with a set of Hogue grips. They also have 10 round mags, but those I don't like.
