    Made a swap for a slightly used, not abused P239 in .357 SIG. Man, this gun feels great in the hand! Now I can't wait to pick up some .357 SIG rounds and hit the range! I don't know which I like better now...my 229 or the new 239...

    I have tried one in 9mm before. It was very accurate to 10 yards. Nice and slim but still a bit heavy. Try one out before you buy.

    +1 Nice and slim, decent size, seems to be a bit on the heavy side for me....but I'm used to those tupperware guns.

    I have one I was thinking about putting up for sale. PM me if your interested.

    Re: Any experiences with SIG P239?

    I like it a lot, for what it is intended for. It is not a range piece. However, it is an accurate little CCW piece with 7+1 9mm power. It is smooth and thin, so it disappears easily and is comfortable/light for all day carry. You forget it is there.

    I have a P239 in 9mm - was my first gun, shot IPSC with it to practice - very accurate to 25-30 yd. Now its my carry piece. Quite comfortable, no sharp edges.

    Well, it looks like I'll be getting a SIG P239 in .357 sometime this week. Found a really nice one to trade for. Can't wait to get my hands on it! :D

    Looks like a grown up version of the P232.

    a buddy of mine has a P239 w/ barrels for 40, 9mm, and 357 Sig.

    The 357 Sig was the worst to shoot out of the three.... the kick was *very* snappy (very noticeable) and it seemed to be a little less accurate. I didnt shoot it that much but definitely preferred 9 or 40 over the 357.

    the 239 was a sweet little gun though, even with the DAO still pretty dang accurate.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only interchangable barrels are the .40 and .357, the 9mm isn't...and they juse the same mag.

    Everyone praising Sig's is making me think that I need to look into one.

    I read on the SIGforum that Bar-Sto makes a 9mm barrel that fits the .40/.357 P239 (it may require some fitting, but if your gun is well used, that it may fit even factory fresh). Just change barrels and mags and you've got a whole new gun. :D

    I liked my 229 enough that I decided to pick up the 239. They have a great feel and are damned accurate, easy to shoot, and well built.
