Which one would you choose and why.

GLOCK 23 .40S&W or SiG Sauer P239 .40S&W?
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 7:25:16 PM EDT
I have a G23 and a P229 in .40 S&W.

Both.

Neither. A Browning Hi Power in .40

ETA: Any handgun I get in .40 will be probably for self defense. that means it's gonna get carried. Which translates into perpetual IWB carry set up.

I am most comfy with BHP IWB. If you wanted a .45, then a 1911 will do, if in 9mm, BHP again.

Glock 23 because it has a constant trigger pull (I'm not a fan of DA/SA), you don't have to worry about an external safey, there is no hammer, it's super easy to field strip, it's slightly lighter, the tenifer finish is virtually indestructable and you can use G22 (15 round) mags. I've got nothing against Sigs, but if given the choice between the two, I would pick the Glock.

The SIG doesn't have an external safety, and is easier to field strip than a glock.

I'd take the glock, and I've owned both. Higher capacity, better ergonomics, constant trigger pull. It's also lighter which can be a plus when it comes to carry.

But the main reason is because I've shot both and the glock fits my hand better.

I'd recommend you buy whichever fits YOUR hand better. They're both excellent firearms.

Are you serious? There are no roll pins on a glock like their are to detail strip a Sig.

Hands down Glock, if you decide to sell it your resale value will be better

field strip != detail strip.

Agreed there.

GLOCK 23
It's the most userfriendly pistol designed thus far IMHO. Point, squeeze. Repeat as needed.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 8:21:13 PM EDT
Buy SIG!! Have both. Saw two Glocks break at the range today! Glock 35 had both rear slide rails on the frame break and a glock 23 (first gen frame) had part of the frame around the left front slide rail break off. (Gun did still function through qualification). Sig... to hell and back reliability!

Sig
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 9:47:30 PM EDT
BOTH!

probably the SIG, but only b/c i dont like the .40sw that much, therefore i must get the gun that is more appealing

In general Glocks do not fit my hand well.. and I go with Sigs..
My ccw is the 239-40 and fits Great with the Hogue finger grove grips. Try to "feel" and shoot both to see which is better for You.


Link Posted: 2/9/2006 12:29:03 PM EDT
GLOCK. The ergonomics on the 239 are the worst of any Sig made.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 1:40:38 PM EDT
Sig.

Sig no doubt....no kaboom to worry about.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 1:39:42 AM EDT
Given a choice between the two weapons, I definitely choose the GLOCK over the SIG any day...

Glocks are lighter and are extremely easy to use... I've tried the SIG at a recent gunshow and the unit too heavy compared with the GLOCK (I plan to use the gun for personal protection - CCW)

Also, Price between the two is a no brainer... Glocks are more reasonably priced vs the Sigs...

No offense to SIG, They really make excellent firearms... but i'm just sold out on the GLOCK in all aspects... G23 SW .40 cal for me....

Link Posted: 2/10/2006 7:08:02 AM EDT
G23. Why? I simply prefer the GLOCK platform.

I have a Glock 23 and a Sig P239 but its 9mm. I have the Houge grips on the Sig, and it just feels perfect in my hand. The Glock doesnt feel as good in my hand and is a little less natural to get on target. The barrel of the Sig is higher than the Glock which should translate into higher felt recoil. My SIG is picky with some hollow points. Bullets with wide openings sometimes get hung on the lip of the feed ramp when charging manually, causing a FTF. This never occurs during recoil however. The Glock will shoot anything I feed it.

They are both really good guns. I carry the Glock because I like a DA trigger on a carry gun. The SA/DA of the Sig (or any gun) takes more practice to get used too.



eta:...oh, I forgot, this is ARFCOM...Get both!

I've got a G23 and a P229DAK no rail. The SIG is great but I like the handling and feel of the 23. You'll find it on my belt much more than the SIG.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 3:29:56 PM EDT
Sig!

Those who complain about DA/SA trigger pulls don't practice shooting with double action pulls. The trigger doesn't bother me a bit. I would advise getting a Sig 229 which is more equivalent to the size of the G23.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 3:58:04 PM EDT
Not that my opinion should mean too much but I prefer Glock... So easy to maintain and field stripping is super easy as well as detail stripping.

But you get what ever fits you better.

I saw one Glock 35 KB last summer. The mag was blown out the bottom and most of the gun was still ok.

Depends on how professional you are...

A better comparo is between the P229 and the G23. I'm not a fan of the ergos on the P239. I've got a P229 in .357, and its a laser beam. I'm getting a .40 barrel for it as well. Depends on what features you want really, Glocks NIB are a hell of a lot cheaper than Sigs, but CPO Sigs are a great deal. Both are virtually indestructable. I've been a Sigophile for a long long time, and I am looking to get my first Glock in the next month or so. Every collection should have one of both. The grip on the P228/P229 Sig is perfect for me, but I definetly like the slimness of the G19/G23. So I'll just have to get both. I'd avoid a P239 unless you are needing as small a ccw gun as possible, and you don't want a Kahr or Keltec. The P229 isn't a whole lot bigger, but the increase in capacity and better ergos make it a far better gun, in my opinion and experience, both of which are worth as much as you paid for them.

i have a sig 239 d/a 357 with bar code on side i love it but the glock is lighter and so much faster to get into action the trigger pull is so short i take my glock most of the timehippie.gif

You should shoot them and then decide.

The question is your to answer.
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 6:28:44 PM EDT
SIG P239 .40s&w because i personally think SIG is the better weapon IMHO.

Link Posted: 2/19/2006 12:48:47 PM EDT
They almost the same size but the glock gives you double the capacity and less complexity. Make mine Glock. Now if it was G23 vs 229R DAK, well that is a different story
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 3:47:10 PM EDT
Glock that is all.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:08:29 PM EDT
I had a 239 in 9mm and it would not reliably fire all types of ammo. I've never had or fired a Glock that ever failed on me.

G23 gets my vote.
