which would you go with and why?  225 or 239 in 9mm

I own a 225 and it does run very well, gotm4 did a trigger job on it and now it is truly sweet with my sub sonic loads I roll for it.

Mags are pricy

P225 if you want something more rare.  I don't have one of these, but I want one.

P239 if you want something fatter than a 9mm...say .40 S&W/.357 SIG. I have P239 with a .40 and .357 barrel and it ROCKS.

P239 is also currently in production, I am not sure if the P225 is [for the USA].

P239 9mm

Both are great, both will get the job done but I say

P225, not too many around.

Be different.

P239 because I have one.

Just ran over 150 rounds through my new P239 (with 40 S&W)....Ditto on "It Rocks"

P225’s are certainly nice, but to me they’re almost the size of a P228 – which of course has a double stack mag.  So I don’t see much merit for them except for folks with truly small hands.

While I don’t care too much for the P239’s blocky grip, the pistol is overall a bit smaller than a P225 and for that reason would be my choice if I were going with a single stack mag.

Is it a DAK? And if so, how do you like it?

Both are great guns.  The 239 will fit a 228 and 229 holster.  The 225 has a different trigger guard that requires its own holster.  The 239 has a solid stainless steel slide, while the 225 is the stamped style.  I like both styles, but you may have a preference.  If I remember correctly, in 9mm they both hold the same number of rounds, but the 239 is a little smaller.

You can't go wrong with either gun.

Mine's not DAK.....I am very comfortable with DA/SA.

Also, I have a P220 with DA/SA that I shoots great.

Easy decision for me.  I can't stand the grip on the P239, and the P225 grip is great.  Both are solid pistols (they're Sig's...).  I suggest taking hold of both, and buying the one that feels and balances best.

The 239 was created with more of concealment in mind (i.e. the rounded tirgger guard) than the military/police belt carry 225. Either are fine guns but I'd lean more toward the 239 because of the original intent for it as a concealed carry gun if that was what I was needing.

Do your self a big favor get the 239 in 357 Sig Now you have a weapon!!! get the 40S&W  barrel and mags for the 40 down the road or just keepit in 357 Sig they rulw!

I have a 239 in .40 and love it. Try both if possible. Just my 2 cents.
Link Posted: 12/29/2006 12:35:42 PM EST
Get Both.

I would get the P239 for concealment but the P225 is nice too.

239 in .40, like some have said, "because I have one and it rocks!"
