    P239 SAS in .45

    Apparently SIG has finally done it - Gunblast had a picuture up of the P239 in .45 at the Shot Show. Here it is, courtesy of Gun Blast:



    For those of you that aren't familiar (far-fetched given this crowd, but possible ), the gun can briefly be described as a DAO, two-tone, dehorned, single-stack pistol specifically designed for CCW. It has limited capacity (in .40 I think it's like 6+1, IIRC), but for those of us on the prowl for a .45 to fit our CCW needs it is a welcome option.

    You could say I'm more than a little excited by this news. I absolutely cannot wait to get a closer look at this gun.

    Interesting gun

    This Sig P239 in .45 also intrigues me. This would seem to fill a hole in the Sig lineup, as their prior attempts at small .45s, like the P245, were larger than this. By the way, the Sig P239 in .40 caliber (an existing product) gives 7+1 capacity. The 9mm version is 8+1, and I presume this new .45 caliber P239 is 6+1 capacity.

    The Sig website shows the weight of a P239 with magazine as 29.7 ounces, so it is a heavier gun than the Colt New Agent (25 ounces), the Glock 36 (20 ounces), and the Kahr P45 (20.5 ounces). I think this might be advantageous in actually shooting the gun, as the very lightweight .45s have a nasty recoil which slows down follow up shots. The Sig P239 also has a 3.6 inch barrel, which would give a little more velocity to the .45 round than the 3 inch barrel of many small .45s.

    This hasn't even been confirmed on SigForum, and people believe it may be a typo.

    But, it would be nice if that is true, as at least in .45 the size of the P239 makes more sense.

    I'm not sure how they could chamber it in .45 ACP without making it a bit larger. Maybe it's a GAP?

    I definitely would be interested if its is true. But....they are already making the p220 compact in DAK. This gun would not make much sense for SIG. I would want my in Henry Ford Model T Black, though.

    I wish the P220 Compact would lose that beavertail! Or, at least the BT be optional. OTOH, if the P239 really will be available in .45 ACP or GAP, it is nice that is has no BT.

    Guys,

    It's been pretty-much confirmed over on SigForum that the .45 thing was a big typo on the GunBlast website.

    Too bad. A P239 in .45 would be awesome.
