Does anyone know how to get a hold of the moderator or webmaster? I haven't had any luck getting my account lined out. I also wanted to point out the P239 capacities are incorrect. I know the .40 S&W holds seven in the mag and I imagine the .357 Sig is the same. What is the 9mm capacity? 9 in the mag?

Capacities are: 8-9mm 7-.40 & 7-357SIG. Plus 1 . Link:https://www.sigsauer.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetails.aspx?categoryid=9&productid=252.

My everyday CC is the SAS Gen2 Two-tone in .40S&W . Thousands of rounds through it and not 1 issue! "To Hell and Back Reliability" you can believe in.

The capacities have been fixed.



You can contact Tigwelder56 by clicking on His name, (He may find You first). I don't want to disturb the 239 thread too much, so, to keep it short, the Webmaster hasn't been around lately, and We're having difficulty contacting Him.

I like to switch between my 3" 1911 and my sig 239, both in 9mm. My sig 239 holds 8 in the mag + 1, unless I use my extended mag (sig of course) which will give me 10 in the mag +1.

Using this configuration with the extended mag is difficult to carry in the summer in Florida due to the printing of the extended base. In the few days of winter under a coat, not as much of a problem.

I brought the extended mag from SIg and it was the same price as the regular magi's.

My P239 just returned from the Sig Custom Shop. Have a new set of walnut grips, an SRT and short trigger. Will be at the range on Friday and a report on the SRT to follow.

grip... What is you impression of the SRT by just dry-firing? Can you post some pics with the new grips? I know there are some nice looking grips out there but I opted for some Crimson Trace Laser Grips on my 239.

Hello. I am new to this forum. I am very impressed with the P239, but I have a question. I am looking at the SS model 2399SAS2T. However, I came across a very similar model, which is 2399TSS.



The specs are almost identical, except for one thing - the SAS2T is listed as around 27 oz. whch the TSS says around 17 oz. Can this be true? Is the lighter one using a polymer frame? I cannot locate the TSS model on the Sig site, but several dalers seem to have it for sale NIB.



Thanks for any comments.

This is my all-time fav 9mm and a superb target gun, especially at 15 yards and beyond! It shot like a winner right out of the box and I use it as a carry when my clothing permits. (Other times, I carry my Glock 26 or Kel-Tec PF9.) My P239 has CT laser grips but no other accoutrements... I would recommend this Sig to all out there! BTW, I have small hands and am small-framed and yet have zero problems handling this pistol or most any other that someone gives me to try out at the range (.347s, 44mags, 45 ACPs...bring them on!)... And still other attributes?...This Sig is super easy to field strip/clean and is a truly elegant weapon!
