I think the P232 fits the gap better but no one on this board ever seems to talk about them

I know there are lots of people who like their 239s but from what I can see they are damn near as heavy as the Walther P99. I love my P99, it fits in my pocket just fine, it just pulls my pants down which is why Im not really looking at 239s.

So there you have it, blue P232 with hogue grips. Any advice? I figure the blued is the lighter of the two and from when I fired my friends P232 with and without grips it became obvious that the hogues were required.

I have a stainless Sig 230. I bought some Hogue rubber grips for it and I shoot better with them.
However, for concealed carry the rubber tends to stick to my clothing so I went back to the Sig grips. I also carry the Sig 225 most of the time.

mmk i was looking at a belt rig that would fit under a shirt, or maybe even a pocket rig depending on how much the over all weight is.

Just a thought - if you're looking for a 9mm in that size, but lighter weight, check out a Kahr...

I have the same problem with the Hogue grips on my 232SL, they feel great in the hand but I want to replace them with smooth factory grips so they won't grab my clothes.

Many people praise the 'smoothness' of the stainless model P232.  Too heavy for your tastes, I would wager, as it is for mine.   A nice middle ground is the two-tone which is lighter than the stainless by a few ounces but still offers the silky action.

So I have heard, anyway, and so I intend to find out for myself as soon as funds allow.

If your not concerned with caliber, I'd say go with the 232 to fill the gap.

I like my alloy framed  P232 as a carry gun.  I replaced my PPK/S with it due to its lighter weight & better overall reliability.  Its 16.2 oz unloaded which is a stupid spec.  Damn things no good unloaded.

Picked up a stainless P232 with night sights and a hogue grip for $400

Fits in the pocket, isnt too heavy

all said, it was a sam adams moment.

Its a *little* on the heavy side but nothing that bothers me. Rather then not existing in my pocket, I at least know its there.

you will be happy with it.  i fed mine a diet of winchester, s&b, remington.  i only had a couple stovepipes.  but without the external slide stop and the small ejection port those can be a real pain in the ass to clear.
