    Sig P 239 questions

    Hi Everybody,

    I have a couple of questions for P 239 owners:

    First, do you carry your weapon cocked?, and, has anyone purchased a conversion kit? As you can see, mine is in .357 Sig, which I like. I would like to be able to shoot .40 S&W and 9mm, also.

    I bought this in January, slightly used for $585. I am moving to Carrollton, TX later this month, so any members are welcome to shoot this or any of my other weapons as soon as I join a range.

    Thanks,

    Forrest

    Welcome to the forum Forrest! I am a fellow Sig owner (P229 9mm) but I know that for your P239, you can get a .40 Sig factory barrel and just drop it in. I'm not sure about 9mm but I think there might be some aftermarket ones out there that would fit, not sure though. One thing I'm sure of is that you'll enjoy that gun! Never shot a P229 but I've never heard bad things about it either! Feel free to ask around if you have any questions!

    You do not carry this weapon cocked. I have 6 Sigs, all DA/SA and I use the decock since that's the way they are designed to be carried.

    Yep, I don't carry it cocked. There is a 9mm conversion barrel available for your Sig. It is "semi drop-in" which may require some special fitting. For some they may just drop in without a problem. It's kind of a crapshoot.

    Ditto Supertac45...

    why would you want to carry it cocked?

    There is no advantage to it.

    Supertac said it! The long dubble action pull, once the hammer is down is safe enough.....that's why it's got the decocker.

    Mine is a DAO. All of mine are that way (except the 22). The 40 is a drop in change, I believe Sig does not make a 9 that you can put in a 40 or 357. There are a couple of after market supplies that sell a 9mm barrel for the 40/357 P239, but has to be fitted.

    Use the decocker... never carry a SIG cocked!!! They have No Lock.

    You can buy a SIG .40S&W barrel to go with your .357SIG barrel. To add a 9mm barrel you will need to buy an after market 9mm conversion barrel to have it shoot 9mm, but you can do that... with a couple of 9mm magazines. You might look at Bar-Sto for after market conversion barrels.

    Looks like everyone who owns one is giving you the same advice, which I agree with. I can just say what has already said......... Use the decocker, and when you are at the range practice the difference between the first and second shot.
