haryr2000... The 2399SAS2T is the P239 in 9mm with the SAS contours, two tone. The SAS contours yield more rounded front and rear corners of the slide. The 2399TSS is P239 in 9mm, two tone. Aside from being two tone, it identical to the conventional P239.

just got my Sig P239 back from the Sig Custom Shop, had a Short Trigger, SRT & than brought a set of new grips.

The gun is 9mm and now it shoots the way the gun was intended to shoot. Sig should have the SRT system in all of their guns.

The wood grips, especially in Florida, keeps the gun from slipping and the rounded shape keeps it from printing under a shirt in the hot days (hey, wait a minute, all of the days are hot except for the three days of winter that we get each year

Just recieved my P239 .40 back from Sig, I had them do the "Sig Service Plan" which is a full cleaning, replaced springs & pins that are worn, and new Siglite night sights installed all for $139.00. Great deal since the sights alone are $125.00. This is my CCW and I have absolutly no complaints. I would recomend the P239 for personal protection to anyone.

It is a little heavy compared to a Glock 27 .40 but I think that helps out a little with the felt recoil. I am not putting down on Glocks at all, they are nice weapons as well, I just prefer the Sig.

This is by far my favorite carry gun. Mine is chambered for 357Sig. Zero issues ever, and considering I have had it over 9 years and lost count of how many times it has been fired - I would recommend it to anyone. The 357Sig round is a hot little number. It packs a lot of punch without much of a kickback. The shot groups are tight which is aided by the ease of holding it and sighting in on a target. The sound is quite impressive as well as the shells being ejected over 10 feet. If you haven't given this gun a try - do so. If you haven't tried the 357Sig load in a smaller framed gun such as this, you are missing out.

Although I'm convinced that the H&K P2000sk (in .40-DA/SA-decocker) is the carry-gun for me, I could not resist the great reviews of the Sig p239. I purchased a 9mm (DA/SA), added the Hogue wrap-around grips and headed to the range. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I also brought my H&K P-30 (also in .40) to compare the shooting experience. Accuracy of the Sig p239 was on par with my H&K at all distances up to 25 yards.

I have small/medium hands so the ergonomics of the p239 (with Hogue grips) was right on!!

The best part of the sig p239 is the trigger. After just 50 or so dry-fires and about 50 rounds the trigger feels very nice. In DA mode there is more side-flip as the trigger releases than on the H&K, but with practice that goes away. The H&K has a longer, heavier but smooth trigger.

I have to say that the Sig p239 is a keeper. I am so impressed with the trigger that I sent my H&K p2000sk off for a trigger-job LOL. Can't go wrong with either weapon, IMO, one is not better than the other, just different.

chs32, I don't like telling a person what mods they should get anymore than telling them what gun they should buy. I completely agree with your approach to deciding what gun to buy and I also completely agree with your choice. I have a 239 in .40 S&W as well. Some of the popular mods are a Short Reset Trigger (SRT) Kit, Crimson Trace Laser Grips, After market sights if you didn't opt for the SigLite Lights. I've equipped mine with the Crimson Trace Laser Grips, and TruGlo TFO Sights.

I have the Houge grips and factory SigLite sights on my 239- .40, no other mods and my opinion is that I have the perfect CCW. My wife carries one identical to mine and loves it as much as I do, niether of them are SAS nor do they have the SRT but I still think they are just fine like they are. Great choice!

Good luck

I recently purchased the Sig Sauer 40 cal SAS Gen II and was very pleased how it felt in my hand. I fired 150 rounds this evening and was impressed on how accurate it was. All center ring with no sight adjustment. Being able to take a weapon right out of the box and have great results shows that Sig Sauer makes an impressive weapon. I own a p230 and a p228. The p239 will be my everyday CCW.
