Does anyone know if the P239 Plus 1 Kit, pinky extension for .357 / .40 magazine, is available from any suppliers? Thanks for your help!

If my memory is correct I think I got mine at Top Gun Supply several years ago.

I was going to say Top Gun but I see they are out. If you can't find the adapters, you can try Top Gun's St. Augustine Florida store for the mags with the adapters on them. I have 7 that I bought from them.

Most sellers were out the other week so I found one on Ebay to try. I haven't run a lot of rounds through it but so far things seem ok.

I've got ten of them. Seven for my P239 .40 mags and three I use on 9mm mags. I have a 9mm barrel for the gun and shoot both calibers. All of them are reliable.

Did I say 9 mm? Yes. The Plus 1 kit is officially recommended for ONLY the .40 mags, no mention of nines. The nines work just fine though. In addition, the .40 mags work using 9mm ammo. Go figure.

Besides the extra round, the grip (base plate) is much more comfortable than the original hooked base plates. They originals used to jam my middle finger up into the rear of the trigger guard when shooting. That was the reason I got them in the first place...the extra round was a bonus.

These were a special run by Sig several years ago. They sent them all to us and we are sold out. I can't see a path for us to get these again. Sorry...

Thanks for the clarification. I notice your Web site now lists them as "Discontinued" rather than just Out of Stock.

It's unfortunate they are no longer on the market. As I mentioned above, the prime virtue for me was they solved the middle finger crowding problem. It was painful and I could only fire about 50 rounds before the pain became too much.

Fortunately, I bought a large stash from TGS a couple of years ago.

Do you know if the St Augustine location still has some of the mags with the kits? I bought 7 of them.

Honestly, I am not sure. It would be best if you called them before you made the trek down to St. Augustine. (904) 615-1661

I was recently at the Florida store and they did have a few handfuls of the magazines left.

Galloway Precision is selling a +1 mag extension for the P239.

Galloway P239 +1

I bought three of them and my initial impression is that they will work just fine. But they only add +1 capability for the .357 Sig and the .40 -- not the 9mm. Galloway's web site says they will have +1 extenders for the 9mm magazines later.

(I have no connection with Galloway Precision).

Can you guys report back on these? I was hesitant because they are not the "special run by Sig", but rather of their own design.

The Galloway +1 extenders work with .357 Sig and .40 only. Added February 4th, 2018: Galloway now has +1 extenders for both 9mm and .40/.357 Sig. There is a slight difference between the two and the .40/.357 Sig +1 variant will not work for 9mm. You have to order the right one for the caliber of your P239. (It's counter-intuitive, because a 9mm round is smaller in circumference than a .40 round, but the problem is that seven .40 rounds leaves a bit more room in the stack than does eight 9mm rounds, before that +1 is added).

I asked Galloway how robust they are and if they intend to keep making them. I got this reply from their Lead Gunsmith: "The material is 1.5 times stronger than aluminum so no worries with breakage. We will continue to produce the extensions as long as the demand for them is there, which I don't see going away anytime soon."

I bought three. The fit is tight, but it works. My initial impression is that it is a good product for a reasonable price ($10 on sale).

I got mine and I'm sorry to say I can't use them with the Hoque wraparound grips. The mag doesn't seat. Those grips are perfect for me and I never in over 1000 rds had any failures until I tried the extensions. I could probably grind them down to seat properly but one failure is one too many in a defensive pistol. They would work fine with factory grips as I understand.

Thanks, as I also have the Hogue wraparound grips.
