I am looking to buy a SIG P239 in 9MM. I can get a poly version 17.7 oz. Or an alloy version 25.2 oz. Both NIB the price difference between them is 0ne dollar. My question is that i will use this pistol for carry, witch one of the two versions would be more accurate, and reliable? For carry i would rather have the lighter pistol, but if the alloy is more accurate and reliable i will deal with the extra 8 oz. Advise me on what to buy please. :dunno:

A polymer P239? When did this happen?

I would like to know also. Never ever heard of a Poly P239. The alloy P239 is a great handgun though.

The poly is a 2022 sig compact or full size around $450 a Sig 239 is around $650. Allso the 239 is single line mag and the 2022 double stack. Both are good pistols. Your choice and money.

I thought the Sig Pro and the P239 were two different animals. Never heard it being referred to as a poly P239. :dunno:

No. Sig doesn't make a poly P239.

The Sig P239 is has an aluminum alloy frame, not polymer.

Maybe he was thinking of the 290?

Could be.

The only polymer Sigs I, like are the SigPros.

I'm with you there!

:agree:

I still haven't had a chance to dig into a P290. It seem too small and I don't think I'll like it.

My personal carry is a P239 in .40. It's an excellent choice for carry.

Get the P239, the added weight will help when shooting. Get a good belt and holster and that extra weight will not matter much.

One of my carry guns is a P239 in .40, it's an excellent choice for carry.
