GF has claimed P239. Time for a P225-A1 ? ? ? Login/Join 
Member

So my GF has decided she likes my P239 better than her S&W Shield.
And the P239 is now her EDC.

Which means the M11A1 is now my EDC.
And it is a fabulous gun that I love carrying and shooting.

But more and more often I find myself yearning for a single-stack carry gun.

What says the Forum? Time for a P225-A1?

If so, what's a good price?

Any chance you can find another 239?

Oh yeah. Would be perfectly happy with another 239.
Except SIG has discontinued it and magazines seem scarce.
I know those aren't really good reasons to NOT buy another 239.

But I held a new 225a1 at the LGS . . . And it just feels REALLY good!

I have a p228, p225, and p225a1. I think the p228 carries as easy as the 225s, but with 16 rounds.

However, i do think it is time for a p225a1, because it is one of the sweetest shooting guns out there!

Just because you can,

The Shield is a very good carry gun, shoots well for its size, accessories are pretty inexpensive, nice size for the capacity, etc.
She may not like it because they require a little more strength to rack the slide but there's not much else to not like.

I can't say enough good things about my P225 A-1, even though it is only 8+1, the gun just feels fantastic, and is totally accurate, it has the Xray night sights and short reset trigger, it;s easy to carry all day, in a belt holster or in a Clinger Stringray kydex IWB no cant holster, which wear appendix position or cross draw, and for me I can wear it all day in comfort, my gun came sighted in and dead on, I put it right up there with my Legions...

I think the 239 parts and mags are going to become available again after the whole "they are discontinuing them" craze dies down. They may even reintroduce them. Kind of like the 225.

Back to your question:
Buds has 225s for between 739-900 depending on options.

Topgun has them for 879 with night sights.

I would say yes, get one. It is amazing how it feels right in the hand. One of the most accurate Sigs I own! I would have to say that the ergonomics of the pistol has a lot to do with that.

Also, my son is teaching his wife to shoot and trying to find a gun she is comfortable with.
Will probably let her try the Shield to see if that works for her.

That's what I noticed about the one I saw at the LGS.
But I'm trying to be financially responsible here . . . and you're not helping!

I vote get another 239. Held a new version 225 the other day that felt great though. Good luck.

I recently purchased a P225A1 and have to say that I don't regret it for a second. $700 for a "mini Legion" and mine is a laser.

Using the P239 threaded barrel it makes a sweet suppressor host and is super easy to carry.

Easily the best Sig I have ever owned and the one I'll never part with...

Does it differ in feel from the P6?

To me, they feel very similar, with my average to large sized hands. Personally, I would rate the newer 225-A1 slightly higher (but not by much), in the balance dept, to the P6/225.

In my opinion, the new P225 A1 is a P239! Why else would it fit like a glove in my P239 holsters! Both leather and kydex. It also shoots as great as the P239. Rest easy my friend and don’t fight the girlfriend or she will trade you for the P225A1.

I'm also in the market for a P225 for carry and range use. Just deciding on which setup: wood grips, all black, or two-tone.


Mostly 9mm:
P226 Enhanced Elite
P938 SAS w/Hogue rubbers
P320 Compact w/subcompact grip
P320 RX Compact
P225 two-tone
Beretta Cx4 Storm
Dan Wesson V-Bob

If anyone is interested in a 225/P6, the Gun Library at Cabelas in Buda, TX has an good looking P6 with blue box and 2-magazines for $499. I would really appreciate it if someone purchased it before I call back and ask them if they can lower the price, since I already have one.
