Friends, I have a Bar-Sto 9mm conversion barrel on my P239 357 Sig. This rig shoots 9mm ammo extremely accurately, and has been 100% reliable with all brands and types (FMJ and HP) of 9mm ammo. I was advised by my ccw/chl instructor to not use this weapon/barrel combo as my carry weapon (possible reliability issues). I want to use it for carry anyway. Do any of you armorers, veteran Sig owners see a problem? Thanks

I have a 239 .40 SAS DAK that i sometimes use with a BarSto 9mm conversion barrel. Never had any issues with it and would use it for carry if I needed to.

With any pistol: It's up to you to shoot however many rounds from it (100s of FMJ and 50 JHP?) in order to satisfy yourself that it's reliable. everyone has a different number of rounds that makes them comfortable... But it's that shooting that establishes the comfort - not whether or not an instructor says anything.

I agree with the advice to test it and then carry it if you want. That’s no different than testing and relying on a factory model. It’s not as if you’ll find yourself in a self-defense situation and the gun is suddenly going to develop a mind of its own and say to itself, “Oh, hey; I can’t do this.”

Thanks, I have a lot of confidence in this weapon, and I shoot it very well. For me, anyway.

I have a P239 SAS DAK with three different caliber setups- 9mm, .357 and .40. In all of those configurations I have never had a feed/firing malfunction. In the .40 (original) setup I've now likely got over 3k rounds+ thru the pistol in all in conditions- all types of ammo, rain/sub zero temps/even snow outside shooting environments. No issues- rock solid.
I would use the number of rounds thru the pistol (with no misfeeds/issues) as a metric.
(I wouldn't likely trust it without having at least 350 to 500 rounds or more of a couple different round profiles wadcutter, hollowpoint, etc)...
If there is a problem, you'll likely encounter it within a 500 round population. Most all of us do the same testing with any new firearm-
