Perhaps the mighty P239 will make a come back then. I sure love my SAS two tone in 357Sig. One day I hope to buy another exactly like it.

I've had the one I purchased used sitting on my desk for over two weeks now... and have yet to shoot it.... maybe Wednesday afternoon... but now that I think about it... I don't think I will make it to my range before sunset.... outdoor gun club surrounded by sub-divisions and you can't shoot after sunset. one day I'll get to see what y'all are talking bout with these P239s.....

Lets not forget that owners of a P239 in either .357 Sig or .40 S&W can convert their pistol to the other caliber by supplying a new barrel and magazines. To convert either of these to 9mm only requires a barrel and 9mm recoil spring. (My OEM .357 Sig functions perfectly in 9mm with these magazines or those marked for ".40 S&W".)

Some of the older government contract guns have nickel plated controls, grip screws, etc. from the factory.

If you have the original box, check the item number for a "-G' on the end.

I've got a lot of rounds through mine. It came as .40, but I've got a threaded 9mm barrel and a bunch of mags for it. One of these days I'm going to send it to SIG to get it gone over. I'd guess it's got over 10,000 rounds. I replaced it with a Glock 19 for my CCW.


I thought Gray Guns was going to work on it for you.


I guess I fell through the cracks. I followed up with repeat attempts as asked but never heard back. Did not complain due to their positive history here and the gun has stayed in the safe.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

I totally agree. Yes, it is heavy compared to plastic guns, and it is lower capacity than some, but it conceals very well, the grip is just tall enough and wide enough for those with larger hands to get a good grip, and the weight makes it more shootable. With crimson trace grips it is an awesome carry gun. I recently looked at the new P365. Very nice, but the grip is just too small.

I kinda liken the 239 to my P7M8, totally different creature, but both just seem like an extension of my hand, and just naturally point.
haven't really found a polymer gun that feels that way, at least to me.

Yup. Got one. It came in satin nickel, .40S&W, with a Hogue wrap-around. Fun, but snappy.

I've added a few things to my P239, since it is a keeper:

1. Hogue G-10 grips. Grippy and thin.
2. Galloway +2 magazine extensions on two magazines, the original +2 magazine extensions on two others, and two plain magazines = 6 total.
3. Trijicon HD XR sights. These feature a very narrow but bright front sight (orange ring around the tritium bottle) and a wide rear sight (.169 inches wide). This combination makes it easy to acquire the front sight but allows those of us with glasses to see more space between the front sight and edges of the rear sight than normal sights -- making the pistol easier to aim accurately.

The contrasting color controls mentioned by the OP and shown in the photos look good. Mine is more homely.

Lots of discussions on the P239 on this forum show that this pistol has a loyal following, which it deserves.
