Thanks for the link Photoman!
I bought a couple and they were delivered promptly. Very good place to do business with.

I like Tanners a lot. I am far away but do business with them on used pistols. They ALWAYS accurately describe their used stuff and if they say like new or mint it arrives that way. Have a pistol from them on me as I type this. Great pricing too, very fair.
Gun control means using both hands in my land.
The P239 is easily my favorite and best shooting pistol. I can see based on capacity and weight how it is outclassed by the competition. In terms of accuracy, it's second to none!
Since they are mentioned in this thread, I wanted to give a shout out to Tanners. They along with Taregtworld are my two favorite local shops! They both have great people working for them and good prices!

You're welcome. Mine arrived very fast.
Picked up two P239’s from Tanner’s sequential serial numbers, should pick them up this week. Great to deal with over the phone..looks like the last 5 ended up on GB.
Well that's a damn shame. It's been my EDC since I bought it in OCT. of 16. Largest 9mm that I can appendix carry comfortably and the smallest that I can shoot accurately. Mine's a 2-tone KJ with Nill grips. Sent it off to SIG for their service package last May. Guess I need to buy some mags and parts kits.

my .40 cal 239 is so accurate it's almost supernatural. I carried it on my vest for years, so most of the finish is rubbed off one side, but that doesn't effect the way it shoots.
Have one in 40, converted to .357 SIG. It's a keeper, accurate, soft-shooting, and having a good grip with the +1 mag. But those were the modifications I had to make in order to make it work for me - basically making it closer in grip dimensions to a new P225A1.
Haven't taken measurements of either, but to me my P239 with the+1 mag feels similar in weight and balance to the P225A1 I've handled in gunshops.
I switch between my 239/.357 and my P232 for my EDC.
Photoman thank you for the link.
I will always keep my 239 9mm DAK...Shoots great and CCW is a breeze. IT's the one platform I've never had a Fail to Function. I've had 4 239s in all calibers Favorite was the DAK 357sig.
It is worth noting that over the years Sig has been known to remove SKU's from their price list and still take orders and build them.
In recent months I've been able to order (and they've delivered) a number of P290RS variants in both 9mm and .380 ACP.
While they are not in the 2018 price list, the P239's can still be ordered in a number of flavors. Will they continue to allow orders through all of 2018? No idea.

All the more reason to love mine!
And maybe find another one for my GF.
(She keeps threatening to take mine.)
Ray Jr is a good guy. He sells so many guns distributors seek him out and give him great deals on large volume items. He sells guns by the 100’s over there. Tanners is probably the best brick and mortar gunstore I have ever been to. One of the few stores who’s instore prices are as good as online prices.
Use thumb-size bullets to create fist-size holes.
I got a Certified Pre-owned .40/357Sig last summer. It looked like it had never been fired. For whatever reason, I seem to shoot that as good as anything I've ever owned. And that includes a number of double stack Sigs. I sure am happy I got it when I did.

My primary duty weapon since I got promoted has been a P239 DAK in .40. For me what made all the difference was changing to the G10 grips. I hated the feel of the factory panels and wasn't a fan of the finger grooves on the rubber grips, but the G10 completely changes the feel of the gun for me in a very positive way.
I've stocked up on about a dozen spare magazines to rotate in as my existing mags wear. I wish I could find magazine springs somewhere, but no one seems to stock them. I put a couple of recoil springs back as well.
I hate when a company discontinues a gun I carry. I start getting paranoid about replacement parts.
^^^ Same here. Been using the checkered G10's for several years. The back strap on the factory P239 grips is just plain slippery, while the G10 provides nice purchase.
Try some skateboard tape on the front strap as well. IMO, most of the control is fore and aft not on the grip sides. Front and rear are the high pressure points for maintaining recoil control.

Magazine springs are in stock as I type this...
I had a 239 DAK 357 ICE issue gun with the etched bar code on the slide , I sold it to a friend and never looked back . He still has it, he can not hit shit with it he told me .
|Move Up or |
My 228 started the journey in 1994. It will always be first in my heart but if I had to pick a pistol to take one shot to save the world it would be with my 239 in 357 sig. It is stupid accurate.
4-5 years ago I had a chance to pick up the extended mags for 357 sig and was able to get 7 of them. That pistol is always in arms reach.
My 239 that I bought in 1996 is my most carried pistol of any I own. It is the smallest pistol I own that feels like a full-size in my hands. Yes, it is a little large for what it was designed for by today's standards, but it hides easy enough in a waistband, and it isn't too heavy. I bought 20 8 round factory mags for it, so I should be good to go there. I reckon I ought to find another extractor as a spare, and a few springs for it, as I plan on continuing to carry it.
Anybody have a line on a factory extractor? I know they aren't easy to find. It looks like there is an "old style" and a "new style." For a gun produced in the 90s, would the old style be the correct one?
