      Sig P239 or Kahr PM9?

      After waiting in line for 8 weeks for a Kahr PM9, black, with nite sights I started looking around. What is a comparable sized weapon in 9mm? Well I couldn't find one. Kahr has the market on that. I was looking for a smaller handgun for summer carry.

      So getting the Signess I started looking into a nice CCW Sig. I found the P239 SAS Gen 2 to my liking - just a tad smaller than the 229 and custom machined for CC. I found one at Top Gun Supply in stock in 40 S&W (my favorite) and the rest is history.

      It will be here later this week. Photo's and range report to follow.

      As the owner of a SAS Gen 2 (P229), I will tell you you're gonna love it! Got mine from Top Gun Supply also. Good prices and really fast shipping. I think mine was out the next day.

      Given all I keep reading about the Kahr's, and what I know about Sigs... I think you had two choices from both extremes of the reliability spectrum, and you made the correct decision. Enjoy your 239.

      The Kahr gods are frowning down upon you. Its too bad to hear, as babs said, that Kahrs are looked at as being unreliable. I have a P9 with about 600 rounds down the hatch and had one FTF in the first 30 rounds when the gun was really tight, but not a hiccup since. They DO have the market on the size thing. its too bad that you hear about them when someone pics up a bad apple. And too bad Kahr cant do something about that apple before it makes it out. But, I do carry may Kahr in complete confidence, and a very sweet and accurate pistol for its size!

      As long as they don't send lightning bolts I can live with it

      I'd probably be carrying a Kahr right now if they did not get swamped with the orders. I was going to settle for the PM9093N waited 8 weeks for a no go on that one - Then I went with the Kahr I really wanted PM9094N waited 12 weeks and a no go. I have a less patience after waiting almost 9 months for my LWRC M6A2 rifle. Man do I know how to pick them.

      Nothing against the Kahr - Maybe after I save up my money again and they are available I can add one to my collection

      Thanks everyone - it shipped today!

      Salty, congratulations on your purchase of one fine firearm. Do consider buying a 357sig barrel for it. It's an amazing round. Don't forget to check with TG Supply for used mags. I bought 4 "used" 357sig police mags for my P239 that had never been out of the plastic sleeves. $25ea.

      Thanks benzuncle - the magazines are next on my list

      I've never shot the .357Sig but was considering the 9mm drop in barrel due to the price of ammo.

      Gun porn



      L - P229 DAK
      R- P239 SAS Gen2

      Both 40 S&W

      The P239 feels great. I like the smooth lines and it will be a first for DA/SA. That first trigger pull is going to be tough but after that it is sweet.

      I will try to get it to the range this weekend.
