Excellent weapon.

Extremely accurate.

Too snappy in that caliber. IMO Then again, I've never shot a .40 that I liked, including my 41 ounce 229ST that I converted to 9mm.

I have a 40, and a 9mm, and I like the 9 better.

Should I keep it or sell it? I've only shot it once, it has night sights and Crimson Trace Laser grips.

If you like it, keep it. All of us have caliber preferences, platform preferences, material preferences, grip preferences, sight preferences. Our opinions mean very little to the owner.

In this model I have the 9mm 239 and I am happy with the way it shoots and its double tap combat accuracy. It packs well in a Galco summer comfort IWB and I forget its there. 2 extra mags in a Uncle Mikes number 2 pocket holster for a J-frame snubby. The mags ride nice in the front pocket. Loaded with +p or +P+ ammo. All the protection a man needs on the street.

Amazing. Five days ago you ask about it. Comments are offered about .40 caliber. Two days later you ask about selling it.

Now you have it up for sale and will take a $200 bath. :faint:

I have a guy that wants to trade me a Sig P229.I have a Sig Certified Pre Owned P299 with a rail. I paid $525 plus s/h FFL fees, etc. Looks brand new with exception of normal wear marks on exterior of barrel. I fired 50 rds through it and realized it was too big for my small hands. So I shipped it back to Sig's Custom Shop for some upgrading: Siglite N/S, Short Trigger, Short Reset Trigger (SRT) System and Installation of E2 Grip Conversion Kit. It came with two 12 rd mags and I purchased three new Sig 10 rd mags (because im dumb enough to live in Central NYS!) So we both have approximately same invested. I'll include the original grips, trigger, etc. Thinking even swap, my Pkg for your's.

I have a Sig P239 DA/SA .40 w/night sights, Crimson Trace Laser grips, 4 mags LNIB

"I have a Sig Certified Pre Owned P299 with a rail." No such animal.

I had one years ago in 40S&W. It was very accurate, but I prefer 9mm.

Got one and love it. Traded a g27 and some cash for it. Very accurate and I really like the da/sa trigger. With a proper holster the weight isn't and issue at all. The slimness really makes it conceal well. My favorite gun that I own right now.

Owned a 239/9 and hated it. Grip and trigger were all wrong for me. Traded it for a 228. The 239 is the only firearm I've sold or traded and never regretted the decision.

I have one with both .40 and .357 Sig barrels. One of the softest-shooting .40s I've ever had. Mine is the SAS version with DAK trigger. This one is definitely a keeper...

Wow! I don't know too many people who carry bricks. A 1911 must be like a bag of cement. :tongueout:

Got away from Sig right now. Sticking with Glock's & SA 1911's.

The 1911 is better to pack than the 228. It is thin and flat. I carry a full size 5" 1918 in a Galco concealment pancake. Much more to packable than the 228. My medsize pistol or backup is a 239 9mm. It is flat too like the 1911. Summer more the 239,fall winter the 1911 full size. The glocks are ok,but here is the fat butts again! Glocks work if they fit you and you like the fat butts. Glocks are good pistols,but they don,t pack good for me or shoot as good as the 1911 or Sig 239. I gave my last G19 to my son its a good reliable 9mm. Nothing wrong with Glocks.

the 239 is nice. only drawback I have and seen complaints on is its size for the amount of rounds it holds. I had one, liked it.. traded it for a jet ski, then ended up with another glock 23, about same size glock weights less and holds more rounds. thats the only complants ive seen, that u can get small guns with same round count.

either way for conceal carry the amount of rounds is good enough. its a sig...enough said.

Since failures in a semi-auto are often magazine related, carrying a spare mag may resolve any problems experienced, and the 8 additional rounds should prove to be enough.

I had and really liked a P239 in .40. I traded it off when I moved away from the .40, just because it didn't really do anything that other calibers I had did not and because I was tired of loading so many calibers (and the .40 is a bit attention-demanding near maxes).

It was controllable and accurate, and certainly easy to carry.
