    Just got my 'new' SIG 239 .40

    THIS is the pistol I've been looking for. Quality manufacture, right size, shape, balance, caliber and a few nice extras.


    Sig 239 in .40; got a 357 SIG barrel and mags for both rounds, the grips shown, plus the standard equipment grips and Hogue wrap-around rubber grips. Low round count and little wear.

    Now. Do I really need my SP 2340?

    Beautiful gun. I've always liked the 239's and came close to owning one more than once. Slim, accurate, versatile. etc.

    Hey Kansas you sure got one nice looking pistol there. I like them wood grips a lot. Don't forget we need a range report and a few more pictures. I bet that little shooter cost a perty penny? Good luck with her.

    Been looking into one of those myself. A gentleman had one at the range today similar to that but stainless instead of blued. It was his first time firing it and he appeared to be very happy.

    Those night sights on there, too?

    So far I've only put 5 or 6 magazines through it, mostly to be sure of my defense ammo. No problems and easy to control.

    Price-wise, it was close to what people are paying for a NIB - but it shows very little wear, came with three sets of quality grips, a 357 SIG barrel, and a bag of SIG mags for both .40 and 357 SIG - I think I made a good deal.

    As a carry pistol it's hard to beat.

    Here it is in 'casual, everyday' wear

    They do dress up nice.

    The lesser expensive Sigs come out of the box pretty utilitarian, but a few aftermarket enahancements and they really show off that great Sig quality. If I hadn't just bought the XD45 Tactical a Sig or a Para CCO would be next on my must have list.

    Good Deal..

    Heck don't worry about the price as long as the pistol does what you want it to do. It's good looking one for sure. Good luck with it.

    For carry, the 239 really is an elegant little piece, particularly with those swanky wood grips. You don't really notice how nice it feels until you pick it up and handle it a little. God, that really is a sweetheart. I have a Sig P225 that I really enjoy shooting, but those wood grips are hard to come by for a pistol that isn't manufactured anymore, especially for anything like what I can afford.
